Scientists now say Marijuana can stop the spread of Cancer. Medical Marijuana is a subject that many believe is an important piece of legislation that needs to be passed across America. Now they have powerful research to back up that argument.
In 1998, Cristina Sanchez of Complutense University in Madrid reported in a European biochemistry journal that while researching metabolism she she discovered something amazing. She found that the spread of Brain Cancer cells compared to regular cells was decreased by THC. She noticed cancer cells were dying off when exposed to Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Dr. Pierre Desprez, and Dr. Sean McAllister of the Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco have spent years researching the benefits of cannabis and have finally made a paramount discovery that could change the world of medicine forever.
They found that the main chemical compound found in the Cannabis plant Cannabidiol could essentially “turn off” the ID-1 gene that causes cancer to spread.
The team has started synthesizing the compound in the lab instead of using the plant in an effort to make it more potent in an effort to develop their anti cancer treatment.
