Cannabis has been making a lot of noise lately. Multiple states across the United States and countries around the world have successfully legalized medical Marijuana, and the Uruguay parliament recently voted to create the world’s first legal marijuana market.

This is good news as the health benefits of Cannabis are vast. With multiple medical and scientific studies to confirm them. But what about the harmful effects? All psychological evaluations from the intake of cannabis are largely based on assumptions, suggestions and observations (1). When we look at the actual science behind Cannabis, it seems negative effects are difficult to confirm.

The Science Behind Cannabis

Let’s take a look at the science behind Cannabis and Cancer. Although Cannabis has been proven to be effective for a large range of ailments, this article will focus mainly on it’s effectiveness in the treatment of cancer. Cannabinoids may very well be one of the best disease and cancer fighting treatments out there. Cannabinoids refer to any of a group of related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. They activate cannabinoid receptors in the body. The body itself produces compounds called endocannabinoids and they play a role in many processes within the body that help to create a healthy environment. Cannabinoids also play a role in immune system generation and re-generation. The body regenerates best when it’s saturated with Phyto-Cannabinoids. Cannabinoids can also be found in Cannabis. It is important to note that the cannabinoids are plentiful in both hemp and cannabis. One of the main differentiations between hemp and cannabis is simply that hemp only contains 0.3% THC while cannabis is 0.4% THC or higher. (Technically they are both strains of Cannabis Sativa.)  Cannabinoids have been proven to reduce cancer cells as they have a great impact on the rebuilding of the immune system. While not every strain of cannabis has the same effect, more and more patients are seeing success in cancer reduction in a short period of time by using cannabis.

While taking a look at these studies, keep in mind that cannabis can be much more effective for medicinal purposes when we eat it rather than smoking it. Below are 20 medical studies that suggest cannabis can be an effective treatment and possible cure for cancer. This is a good starting point for the push for further human clinical trials.

Brain Cancer

1.  A study published in the British Journal of Cancerconducted by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in Madrid, this study determined that Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids inhibit tumour growth. They were responsible for the first clinical study aimed at assessing cannabinoid antitumoral action. Cannabinoid delivery was safe and was achieved with zero psychoactive effects. THC was found to decrease tumour cells in two out of the nine patients.

2. A study published in The Journal of Neuroscience examined the biochemical events in both acute neuronal damage and in slowly progressive, neurodegenerative diseases. They conducted a magnetic resonance imaging study that looked at THC (the main active compound in marijuana) and found that it reduced neuronal injury in rats. The results of this study provide evidence that the cannabinoid system can serve to protect the brain against neurodegeneration.

3. A study published in The Journal of Pharmacology And Experimental Therapeutics already acknowledged the fact that cannabinoids have been shown to possess antitumor properties. This study examined the effect of cannabidiol (CBD, non psychoactive cannabinoid compound) on human glioma cell lines. The addition of cannabidiol led to a dramatic drop in the viability of glioma cells. Glioma is the word used to describe brain tumour.  The study concluded that cannabidiol was able to produce a significant antitumor activity.

4. A study published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics outlines how brain tumours are highly resistant to current anticancer treatments, which makes it crucial to find new therapeutic strategies aimed at improving the poor prognosis of patients suffering from this disease. This study also demonstrated the reversal of tumour activity in Glioblastoma multiforme.

Breast Cancer

5. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine, conducted by the California Pacific Medical Centre determined that cannabidiol (CBD) inhibits human breast cancer cell proliferation and invasion. They also demonstrated that CBD significantly reduces tumour mass.

6. A study published in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics determined that THC as well as cannabidiol dramatically reduced breast cancer cell growth. They confirmed the potency and effectiveness of these compounds.

7. A study published in the Journal Molecular Cancer showed that THC reduced tumour growth and tumour numbers. They determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell proliferation, induce cancer cell apoptosis and impair tumour angiogenesis (all good things). This study provides strong evidence for the use of cannabinoid based therapies for the management of breast cancer.

8. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) determined that cannabinoids inhibit human breast cancer cell proliferation.

Lung Cancer

9. A study published in the journal Oncogeneby Harvard Medical Schools Experimental Medicine Department determined that THC inhibits epithelial growth factor induced lung cancer cell migration and more. They go on to state that THC should be explored as novel therapeutic molecules in controlling the growth and metastasis of certain lung cancers.

10. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine by the Institute of Toxicology and Pharmacology, from the Department of General Surgery in Germany determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell invasion. Effects were confirmed in primary tumour cells from a lung cancer patient.  Overall, data indicated that cannabinoids decrease cancer cell invasiveness.

11. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine, conducted by Harvard Medical School investigated the role of cannabinoid receptors in lung cancer cells. They determined its effectiveness and suggested that it should be used for treatment against lung cancer cells.

Prostate Cancer

12. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine illustrates a decrease in prostatic cancer cells by acting through cannabinoid receptors.

13. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine outlined multiple studies proving the effectiveness of cannabis on prostate cancer.

 14. Another study published by the US National Library of Medicine determined that clinical testing of CBD against prostate carcinoma is a must. That cannabinoid receptor activation induces prostate carcinoma cell apoptosis. They determined that cannabidiol significantly inhibited cell viability. 

Blood Cancer

15. A study published in the journal Molecular Pharmacology recently showed that cannabinoids induce growth inhibition and apoptosis in matle cell lymphoma. The study was supported by grants from the Swedish Cancer Society, The Swedish Research Council and the Cancer Society in Stockholm.

16. A study published in the International Journal of Cancer also determined and illustrated that cannabinoids exert antiproliferative and proapoptotic effects in various types of cancer and in mantle cell lymphoma.

17. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine conducted by the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology by Virginia Commonwealth University determined that cannabinoids induce apoptosis in leukemia cells.

Oral Cancer

18. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine results show cannabinoids are potent inhibitors of cellular respiration and are toxic to highly malignant oral Tumours.

Liver Cancer

19. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine determined that that THC reduces the viability of human HCC cell lines (Human hepatocellular liver carcinoma cell line) and reduced the growth.

Pancreatic Cancer

20. A study published in The American Journal of Cancer determined that cannabinoid receptors are expressed in human pancreatic tumor cell lines and tumour biopsies at much higher levels than in normal pancreatic tissue. Results showed that cannabinoid administration induced apoptosis. They also reduced the growth of tumour cells, and inhibited the spreading of pancreatic tumour cells.

Final Thoughts

Cannabis is a great example of how the human mind can contain conditioning to believe something. Growing up, we are told “drugs” are bad, which is very true, however not all substances that have been labelled as “drugs” by the varying authoritative bodies are harmful. It’s possible substances are labelled as a “drug” in order to protect corporate interests. One example is the automobile and energy industry, a car made from hemp is stronger than steel, and can be fuelled from hemp alone. Henry Ford demonstrated this many years ago. Hemp actually has over 50,000 uses!

  4. Whatever is toxic to tumors is toxic to man. Thousands of people with cancer use cannabis but none of them are cured. Sure the cannabis relaxes people, takes the edge off and makes the fear tolerable and that is what gives people relief from the disease. There is a battle as to whether to legalize pot or not and it has nothing at all to do with the healing abilities of pot. Sure we can say that the dirty old government is preventing it from becoming legal because it will cure cancer but it hasn’t cured anyone who is using cannabis legally or illegally already.

    They will legalize cannabis as soon as the government can figure out how to make money from it, and if they choose to classify it as a cancer treatment and they can control the distribution they will succeed in doing what they do best and that is sell treatments without giving cures.

    There will never be a medical cure for cancer and every person in the world has access to cannabis and no amount of well written commercial science reports will change the fact that those who use cannabis after being diagnosed with cancer will still be in a world of trouble, they just won’t feel it so much.

    I’m all for legalizing pot, but I am more supportive of people doing their own research instead of relying on commercial science for marketing purposes only. Find someone who has cured cancer while using cannabis but keep in mind, when a person survives chemo or radiation it isn’t because the chemo or radiation saved them it is because they were still strong enough to survive and there is no way to prove how they would have fared had they skipped the chemo or radiation and just cashed in all their retirement and moved to the islands, the latter would likely be far superior cancer treatment than any drug or cannabis.

      Curcumin an active compound of Turmeric powder is toxic to tumors and over a billion people in South Asia and beyond consume large amounts of it every day without ANY toxicity. These populations have the least incidence and cancer ratios of the world. There are several thousand clinical studies proving it’s effectiveness in reducing tumor size and killing cancer cells.

      Two things:

      Also what’s this ‘logic’? Cannabis doesn’t cure cancer because you say so?

      As far as I know, no good quality trials have been done in humans, and so we don’t know if cannabinoids are effective against cancer. Alright, it’s unlikely to be a magical cure, but it might be an effective treatment. It might save lives. It’s worth finding out.

      It’s the OILS that I want. Maybe you didn’t take the time to comprehend the language contained in these articles, or maybe you are unable. Let me be blunt; It’s a matter of Biology, cancer tumors grow continually because the cells lack Apoptosis (PROGRAMMED CELL DEATH). They are like the energizer bunny in this respect, they just keep growing and growing and growing, sucking all of your nutrients, and you end up living just to feed the tumor. This is how the cannabidoils work in plain language: it sends messages that pat their backs and “tells” the tumor it’s okay to die. This is exactly how they inhibit growth in a petri dish. So your first statement: “Whatever is toxic to tumors is toxic to man” is truly ironic as it is the program of death itself, that is running within you, within me, within every single one cell in our bodies that has the ability to kill a tumor, and us mortals as a whole. The oils simply trigger the effect that the tumor cells lack but every other cell already contains.

      tic tumor cells but not in normal tissue. In conclusion, results presented here show that cannabinoids lead to apoptosis of pancreatic tumor cells via a CB2 receptor and de novo synthesized ceramide-dependent up-regulation of p8 and the endoplasmic reticulum stress–related genes ATF-4 and TRB3. These findings may contribute to set the basis for a new therapeutic approach for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. (Cancer Res 2006; 66(13): 6748-55)
      In study after study, cannabinoids have been shown to target and kill cancer and tumor cells.
      I didn’t bother reading past the first erroneous statement.

              You’ll have to seek someone with more specific knowledge of cannabinoid ratios used. IIRC, the blended oil used for the Dravet’s patients is approx. 60% CBD and 10% THC -but that’s just a stab in the dark, it’s been a bit since I read what blend worked for Jayden David in CA. The process to make those blended oils requires separation of cannabinoids and infusion (into cannabis seed oil commonly) to achieve specific content by volume. That is why the cultivators helping Charlotte Figi & others worked to develop very low THC varieties with high CBD levels. THC content can easily be increased after resin extraction from a high CBD plant. For general purposes 10-12% CBD content is average, with new generations and cultivars increasing those levels. The Israeli government is making enormous progress in cannabinoid science, and has hybridized a 0% THC cultivar. The information is out there. Herbal and essential oil products manufacturers use many of the same processes to extract and process other botanical compounds. The are open groups of users & advocates of essential oils.

            Michael, CBD content of any extract depends on source material and method of extraction. I cannot speak to cost. Therapeutic benefits depends on many factors, including the ratio of cannabinoid, terpene/terpenoid and flavanoid content as well as intended use. Cold water extraction is the simplest method to use, requiring minimal materials – the most expensive of which is the cheesecloth “sock” for straining. There is an excellent video on youtube. Cold water filtration does tend to include a slight amount of water soluble plant compounds as well as trichomes, depending how much agitation is used, but that is not a negative effect.

          Hemp is/are cannabis varieties with very low THC levels. Cancer treatment typically requires higher THC level varieties of cannabis, but not recreatiinal varieties with extremelyblow CBD content. Check Harborside Health & Realms of Caring for examples of medicinal extract oil. Alcohol & petroleum solvents for extraction leave residues which are contraindicated for medical patients. CO2 & cold water extraction methods leave no toxic residues.

        The “curative power” lies in the plant compounds, including cannabinoids, regardless of ingestion method. However, juicing the raw leaves and flowers provides the greatest amount of phytocompounds. Extract oil, both raw and decarboxylated provides the next highest level, with vaporization and combustion delivering the least amount – but also the quickest delivery, the easiest method for self-titration and most direct delivery for specific conditions including asthma and COPD. Ingestion orally is indicated for most medicinal use. The facts are readily available to anyone desiring to know.

          GW Pharma is still conducting several Phase 3 trials, having completed 2 for cancer pain. They have begun patent process for Sativex in treatment of cancer, specifically prostrate cancer. If you want human trials instead of studies like Dr. Tashkins, funded by the NIDA I might add, you are talking apples and oranges, and I beleve yoy know it. Rather, I will refer you to your own prowess with a search engine. Dr. Guzman has done trials. More than that I would have to run a search and screen. Believe your own search results if you choose. I think the article is mis-titled also. This is a factual statement conveying the same basic message: Cannabinoids kill cancer cells in vivo, in vitro and in human trials. The science is there, ongoing and groundbresking. Since discovery of the ECS, the research has been increasing exponentially. Pubmed only lists Velasco / Guzman. “Guzmán M, Duarte MJ, Blázquez C, et al.: A pilot clinical study of Delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol in patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme. Br J Cancer 95 (2): 197-203, 2006. [PUBMED Abstract]” Velasco G, Sánchez C, Guzmán M: Towards the use of cannabinoids as antitumour agents. Nat Rev Cancer 12 (6): 436-44, 2012. [PUBMED Abstract]

          There are others outside the US. The science behind cannabinoids is sound, that’s why DHHS has held patent #6630507 since 2003, and why NIH-OTT licensed it last year to KannaLife Sciences.

        Rebecca, people with psychological dysfunctions need to exercise care concerning cannabis use for many reasons. Cannabinoid content and ratios are critcal for therapeutic benefit when dealing with our minds. I’m would guess you might have noticed high THC content not only doesn’t always help much, but can even aggravate your condition. “Recreational” varieties often have very low CBD content, but are often predominant when the only source is illegal distributers. Lower THC content can help overcome the low CBD levels. Recent research is looking at the potential for replacing psychotropics, but that won’t be soon. If you find your supply is too high in THC expose it to air in slightly open container. This will degrade some of the THC into CBN, which is only approximately 1/10th as psychoactive and has a sedative effect also. If you have access to extract oil, be sure of the cannabinoid content. These guys might have more indepth info for you if you have trouble searching on your own.

      You need to get your facts straight instead of spreading misinformation. Charlotte Figi is her name.http://m.gazette.com/medicinal-marijuana-stops-seizures-brings-hope-to-a-little-black-forest-girl/article/1502070
      Dozens of pediatric patients using ‘Charlotte’s Web’ marijuana

      “That plant” is a special strain of marijuana, cultivated at a Teller County grow business owned by six brothers who have been featured on the National Geographic Channel show “American Weed.” The Stanley brothers breed the marijuana so it’s super low in THC, the psychoactive component of pot that gets people high, but full of cannabidiol, or CBD, a component believed to be a key to the medicinal properties of marijuana.

      The brothers named their low-THC, high-CBD strain “Charlotte’s Web,” a tribute to the success of their first pediatric patient.

      “In six years, this is the only thing that has given us this type of success with no side effects,” Paige says.

      Charlotte doesn’t smoke her medicine. The Stanley brothers harvest the plant, extract its cannabidoils, then have it lab-tested to confirm its THC and CBD levels. Then they mix the CBD into an olive oil solution, and Paige gives it to Charlotte two times a day, squirting a measured amount under her tongue with a syringe.

      The real facts are quite easy to find, so please don’t make statements about the subject which are false, misleading and counter-productive. You might be interested to know Jayden David in CA was in the news last year after his father Jason sought help from Harborside Health for his seizures.
      http://articles.latimes.com/2012/sep/13/local/la-me-customized-marijuana-20120914

      Low levels of THC in the extract oil are necessary for the CBD content to be effective, and the high level of CBD counteracts the psychoactive properties of the THC.

    After all is “said & done”…if you were to do a study on a strictly “liquid” diet (per se…in the fight against cancer), I’m sure you would find the same results (just as an example). In the end, it is the body’s OWN immune system that cures itself of cancer, nothing more…NOTHING LESS!

  11. Dates on the studies would be nice.

    Charles, can you send a link to that youtube video? I’ve found some but they were not helpful at all, and doubt that they are the one you mention. Thanks for the help. I”m looking for a strong therapeutic oil to make. I’ve heard online of people using very ordinary cannabis and having great success with cures. Do you agree or is it very important as to the CBD content?
    Best wishes

      Youtube has Run From The Cure, The Rick Simpson Story with details on how to make the oil.

        The subject under discussion is cold water extraction, to avoid the use of solvents. CO2 & cold water extraction leave 0% solvent residue, because they aren’t used. CO2 extraction is more difficult than cold water extraction. Some people prefer not to use solvents of any kind for extraction of trichome resin intended for medical use. Some people believe preservation of all plant compounds, including terpenes & flavanoids is crucial to synergistic actions with phyto-cannabinoids and their mechanisms of interaction with the endogenous cannabinoid system. Even trace amounts of solvent residue can be problematic for some patients.

      Sorry Michael, it’s been months since I saw it. Went back thru youtube history, but don’t see it. It’s not difficult, and I’m sure there are other examples available. Google ” cold water extraction low agitation trichomes cheesecloth” and start digging. Good luck.

    I was very pleased when I first heard the news in Uruguay, what’s more, the source I heard it from said that it was being legalised in a way that is highly regulated and so likely to keep the harm done by the drug low. Brilliant news.

    That said, you’ve provided an article entitled ’20 medical studies that prove cannabis can cure cancer’, and in it you haven’t provided one medical study that proves cannabis can cure cancer.

    I’ve scanned all of the studies, and this is what I found. Most of the studies were done in mice (4,5,6,7,9,10,11,16,19,20), rats (2), some non-human animal (14 – I can’t read the paper from here) and cell lines (3,8,12,15,17,18). You’ve also provided a systematic review (13) which is very interesting, but concludes that “it would be of interest to conduct clinical studies”, not that these drugs definitely work against cancer. You’ve also showed something in humans that concludes THC is safe at certain doses and has “possible antiproliferative action on tumour cells”. It had no controls and was clearly a preliminary study.

    Not one of these studies amounts to clear evidence that cannabis cures cancer. They show that it is worth studying to see if it causes cancer, but not that it does. To show that a drug works you need good quality clinical trials in real people who really have the disease. Study number 1 is the closest you’ve got.

    Surely, misinforming people by saying you know something that you don’t isn’t the right thing to do. Worst case scenario people will take a dose of cannabis which doesn’t work (maybe because it doesn’t work at all, maybe because they take the wrong amount) instead of taking drugs which do work, and die as a result. You’re also encouraging people to take cannabis based on false premises. And surely any push for legalising cannabis should be based on the truth: based on people’s rights, the safety and dangers of cannabis, and based (in part) on minimising the harm caused by the drug. Not on spurious medical claims.

      A simple search online, for cannabis oil and cancer, would result in thousands of statements, testimonials and even published documents of how well cannabis oil treats so many different illnesses, including curing so many types of cancer. So, you either want to find the truth or maybe you don’t, but the truth is not hard to find.

    I’ve used cannabis as medication for 13 years, extracted and baked edibles are highly effective. Personally, I have had some experiences involving major sedation. One experience ended with me sleeping 20 hours.

  21. Great article; would be more professional if you wrote anyway, not anyways. And “negative stigmatism” – I think you’re making up words, or confusing stigma with astigmatism: “stigmatism” or “astimatism” has to do with eyesight (evaluation of). What you should say is negative stigma.

    stig·ma stigmə/ noun
    noun: stigma; plural noun: stigmata; plural noun: stigmas

    1. a mark of disgrace associated with a particular circumstance, quality, or person.
    “the stigma of mental disorder”
    synonyms: shame, disgrace, dishonor, ignominy, opprobrium, humiliation, (bad) reputation

How I Healed My Failing Liver Naturally

This past February, I was thrown off of my health high-horse. What first started as a headache, fever, and body aches, quickly escalated into an excruciating migraine, debilitating muscle stiffness, and an overwhelming sense of nausea. I was hit with what I thought was…
