Cannabis Stops Cancer Cell Growth and Kills Cancer Cells

Cannabinoids are clinically proven to kill cancer cells in both in vitro and in vivo studies.

With all the excitement surrounding recent scientific discoveries of new diseases that cannabinoids treat, we’ve forgotten about one the oldest, and most important diseases, that cannabis can cure.

Cancer.

Get ready for a crash course in biochemistry and oncology.  Here are some words that you are about to see and what they mean when referring to cancer.

Angiogenesis:  The process by which cancer grows new blood vessels.  Will lead to metastasis.

Metastasis:  When cancer starts spreading throughout the body.  This is always a bad thing.

Apoptosis:  The death of cells that occurs as a normal and controlled part of an organism’s growth or development.  This is good.

Cancer is a disease caused by an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells that are able to invade normal tissue.  There are many different kinds of cancers (From cancer.gov).

  • Carcinoma – cancer that begins in the skin or in tissues that line or cover internal organs. There are a number of subtypes of carcinoma, including adenocarcinomabasal cell carcinomasquamous cell carcinoma, and transitional cell carcinoma.
  • Sarcoma – cancer that begins in bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, or other connective or supportive tissue.
  • Leukemia – cancer that starts in blood-forming tissue such as the bone marrow and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the blood.
  • Lymphoma and myeloma – cancers that begin in the cells of the immune system.
  • Central nervous system cancers – cancers that begin in the tissues of the brain and spinal cord.

The direct causes of cancer are not fully understood, however, the process of cancer development is as follows.

Our bodies are constantly regenerating.  Cells have life spans just like other living organisms.  Cells are born, they live, then they die.  At least that is what is supposed to happen.

Sometimes this process doesn’t go as planned.  DNA mutations can affect normal cell growth and development.  When cells that are supposed to die from apoptosis, but don’t, new cells are created and form tumors.  Some tumors are benign, which means they are harmless.  Malignant tumors, on the other hand, are bad.

Several cannabinoids found in marijuana have demonstrated the ability to stop cancer angiogenesis and metastasis, while inducing apoptosis.  Cannabidiol (CBD) has shown the most efficacy thus far.

In english, cannabinoids prevent cancer cells from growing and spreading, then make them commit suicide.  Doctors and scientists are amazed and encouraged by cannabis’ potential as an anti-cancer treatment.  The following diagram shows how cannabinoids fight cancer.

      Hi Carla,

      I’m sorry to hear about your husband’s condition. Due to various laws, we cannot give you medical advice. What I would do is begin using high thc and high cbd concentrates by vaping and eating them. High CBD strains that you can usually find in CA are remedy, ac/dc, pennywise, tsunami, harlequin, and otto. I recommend downloading the Leafly app and looking at the inventory of the dispensaries near you. Call them and ask what cbd they have. High thc will be everywhere. Don’t rely 100% on cannabis because as we all know, cancer is insidious. Good Luck!
