Recent studies have shown that some cannabinoids have potent anti-cancer action.
In a study published in Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, it has been reported that cannabinoids could play a role in treating one of the most aggressive cancers in adults - brain cancer, which is notoriously difficult to cure.
Dr Lui of St George's Medical School, University of London, reports: "our results showed that the dose of irradiation we used had no dramatic effect on tumour growth, whereas CBD and THC administered together marginally reduced tumour progression. However, combining the cannabinoids with irradiation further impeded the rate at which tumour growth progressed and was virtually stagnant throughout the course of the treatment. Correspondingly, tumour sizes on the final day of the study were significantly smaller in these subjects compared with any of the others."
In some cases the tumours virtually disappeared.

For years the British government has banned scientific research into cannabis in case it contradicted the official stance that cannabis was an especially dangerous drug. The government's own scientific advisors have been fired for attempting to alert the public to the truth.
