We are not still in the dark and are all aware that cannabis causes intense effects in the process against cancer. We read and hear about it on a daily basis.
Results may vary among different people, but the discovery of something extraordinary and big is in the air. The video below shows cancer cells dying at the hands of THC and healthy cells remaining unscathed.
The senior policy analyst for NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, Paul Armentano, states that the cannabinoids are big hope for patients who suffer from this horrific disease. This data came to light in the 1970’s but has only recently gained popularity. Published in the August 18th, 1974 edition of the Washington Post:
“THC 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 percent.”
The Watergate scandal also buried this story to a major extent, but it kept its value as being the first of many reports that would show the effectiveness of cannabis as a treatment for cancer.
The results showed that mice treated for 20 consecutive days with delta-8-THC and CBN had reduced primary tumor size. Furthermore, animals treated for 10 consecutive days with delta-9-THC, beginning the day after tumor implantation, demonstrated a dose-dependent action of retarded tumor growth.
