Cannabis Oil Kills Cancer: Video

Watch as the active ingredient THC, found in cannabis oil kills cancer cells.

Since 1974 studies have shown that cannabis has anti-tumor effects. The results of the 1974 study, was reported on August 18th 1974, in the Washington Post newspaper.  The article claimed that cannabis’s component, 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.”

In 1975 an article in the Journal of the National cancer institute titled “Antineoplastic Activity of Cannabinoids,” reported that:

“Lewis lung adenocarcinoma growth was retarded by the oral administration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinol (CBD). Mice treated for 20 consecutive days with THC and CBD had reduced primary tumor size.” 

In 1998, a research team Led by Dr. Manuel Guzman at Madrid’s Complutense University, discovered that THC can selectively induce programmed cell death in brain tumor cells without negatively impacting surrounding healthy cells.

Nature Medicine magazine reports that cannabis oil kills cancer cells

They reported in the March 2002 issue of “Nature Medicine” they had destroyed incurable brain cancer tumors in rats by injecting them with THC. And in 2007 even Harvard Researchers found that compounds in cannabis cut the growth of lung cancer.

There is also an organization called The SETH Group that showed compounds in cannabis can stop the growth of human glioblastoma multiforma (GBM) brain cancer cells. The SETH Group says:

“No chemotherapy can match this nontoxic anti-cancer action.”

Even last year in 2012 a pair of scientists at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco found THC stops metastasis in many kinds of aggressive cancer.

An article in The Telegraph, states that the US government has confirmed that cannabis oil kills cancer cells after the drug did so in tests on mice and rats, according to the National Cancer Institute. The development will provide further ammunition for pro-legalisation campaigners.

On its website The National Cancer Institute, part of the US department of health, said:

“Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids (the active ingredient in cannabis) may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.”

“They may inhibit tumour growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumours to grow.”
