Research over the past decade or so has successfully been showing the great potential of cannabis and, more specifically, the practice of using cannabinoids in cannabis – THC and CBD – to shrink and inhibit the growth of tumors. (1)
In 1974 the Washington Post released an article in which was stated “slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives by as much as 36%”, but the world was remarkably quiet about it. (2)
It took years, until the information was spread on the internet and the people start to use cannabis. Also, video footage of the cells in action helps drive the point home: certain strains of THC can kill cancer cells and let normal cells live in peace.
The video footage was taken with a microscope over a period of 20 hours and shows how cannabinoid killing actual human tumor cells from an active tumor (on the right) and leaving healthy cells (on the left) alone.
In 1998, a new study, by Madrid Complutense stated that ”THC can cause cancer cells to die, and unlike chemotherapy the THC kills nothing but the cancer cells, leaving the brain of course completely unharmed.”
We hope that the impact of such tangible proof as this video of cannabis potential to save lives will enable necessary changes in legislation and allow for greater research opportunities in the near future.
These three videos are a great example, and even some direct footage, of the THC molecule binding to cells and slaying the cancerous ones.
