Cannabis Kills Cancer

Cancer hates marijuana. Here is definitive proof via peer-reviewed science that cannabis kills cancer, many different types of cancer.

Cannabis kills stomach cancer
These results indicate that a cannabinoid agonist may, indeed, be an alternative chemotherapeutic agent for 5-FU-resistant gastric cancer.
Anticancer Research. 2013 June. ‘Cannabinoid receptor agonist as an alternative drug in 5-fluorouracil-resistant gastric cancer cells.

Cannabis kills leukemia
We explored the activity of six cannabinoids, used both alone and in combination in leukaemic cells. Cannabinoids were cytostatic and caused a simultaneous arrest at all phases of the cell cycle. Re-culturing pre-treated cells in drug-free medium resulted in dramatic reductions in cell viability. Furthermore, combining cannabinoids was not antagonistic.

Cannabis kills breast cancer
Here, we have shown CBD-induced cell death of breast cancer cells, independent of cannabinoid and vallinoid receptor activation. […] Our study revealed an intricate interplay between apoptosis and autophagy in CBD-treated breast cancer cells and highlighted the value of continued investigation into the potential use of CBD as an antineoplastic agent.
Mol Cancer Ther. 2011 July Cannabidiol induces programmed cell death in breast cancer cells by coordinating the cross-talk between apoptosis and autophagy.

Cannabis kills colon cancer
CBD BDS attenuates colon carcinogenesis and inhibits colorectal cancer cell proliferation via CB1 and CB2 receptor activation. The results may have some clinical relevance for the use of Cannabis-based medicines in cancer patients.
Phytomedicine. 2013 December ‘Inhibition of colon carcinogenesis by a standardized Cannabis sativa extract with high content of cannabidiol.

Cannabis kills prostate cancer
several cannabinoids exert antitumoral properties against prostate cancer, reducing xenograft prostate tumor growth, prostate cancer cell proliferation and cell migration.
Nat Rev Urol. September 2011 ‘The endocannabinoid system in prostate cancer.

Cannabis kills brain cancer
New research out of Spain suggests that THC — the active ingredient in marijuana — appears to prompt the death of brain cancer cells.

Cannabis kills cancer & curbs MS
“The cannabinoids in cannabis prevent cancer cells from spreading, and they contribute to cancer cell death because they hit some receptors that are generally up-regulated in cancer cells,” says Professor Marja Jäättelä, who heads the Cell Death and Metabolism Research Unit at the Danish Cancer Society.
ScienceNordic: January 6, 2014 ‘Cannabis can kill cancer cells and curb MS

Dr. Christina Sanchez (a molecular biologist at Compultense University in Madrid, Spain) explains how THC kills cancer cells.

Endocannabinoid system can improve efficacy of colon cancer treatments
Our results partially elucidated the role of endocannabinoid system in the molecular mechanisms enrolled by steroids in the inhibition of colon cancer cell growth and strongly suggested that targeting the endocannabinoid system could represent a promising tool to improve the efficacy of colorectal cancer treatments.
Journal of Cellular Physiology January 2012 ‘Interaction of endocannabinoid system and steroid Hormones in the control of colon cancer cell growth

Endocannabinoid system promising target to treat cancer
The antiproliferative and apoptotic effects produced by some of these pharmacological probes reveal that the endocannabinoid system is a promising new target for the development of novel chemotherapeutics to treat cancer.
Cancer Metastasis 2011 December Cannabinoids, endocannabinoids, and cancer.

Cannabinoids are an anti-cancer
cannabinoids have shown some promise as anti-cancer therapies.

Cannabis kills skin cancer

Cannabis kills pancreatic cancer
Cannabinoids also reduced the growth of tumor cells in two animal models of pancreatic cancer.
Cancer Res July 2006 Cannabinoids Induce Apoptosis of Pancreatic Tumor Cells via Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress–Related Genes

Cannabinoid receptor agonist WIN55212-2 target for melanoma treatment
WIN exerted antimitogenic effects […] Membrane lipid raft complex-mediated antimitogenic effect of WIN in melanoma could represents a potential targets for a melanoma treatment.
Cancer Lett. 2011 November The antimitogenic effect of the cannabinoid receptor agonist WIN55212-2 on human melanoma cells is mediated by the membrane lipid raft

Cannabis kills oral cancer
These results show the cannabinoids are potent inhibitors of Tu183 cellular respiration and are toxic to this highly malignant tumor.
Pharmacology June 2010 Cannabinoids inhibit cellular respiration of human oral cancer cells.

Smoking cannabis can prevent neck and head cancer
Our study suggests that moderate marijuana use is associated with reduced risk of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
Cancer Prev Res (Phila). 2009 August A population-based case-control study of marijuana use and head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.

Can cannabis cure cancer? The big pharmaceutical companies & many governments say no. In fact, the US government ridiculously claims that cannabis has no medicinal value. This asinine government position has killed innocent people including 4 year old Cash Hyde.

PRweb reported about Cash Hyde’s death back in 2012:

The four-year-old Montana boy—whose malignant brain cancer had been in remission while he received consistent medical cannabis treatments—is the latest casualty in the federal government’s war on voter-approved medical marijuana […] Desperate to find anything to keep their young child Cash alive, after traditional treatments and medications failed to slow the growth of the malignant tumor in his brain, Mike and Kalli Hyde turned to high-CBD cannabis oil. Cash’s cancer immediately went into remission, and he started to live a more normal life. Cash was comfortable, started eating again, and recovered his desire to play. A news story about Cash can be viewed on YouTube.

Then, last summer, law enforcement officials in Montana came down hard on the medical marijuana industry. Rather than face the risk of being stormed by armed agents and subjected to steep fines or jail time, many legally-compliant medical cannabis dispensaries in Montana closed down.

The federal crackdown resulted in the closure of most of the medical marijuana dispensaries in Montana, and cut off the Hyde’s access to the therapeutic cannabis oil that was keeping Cash’s cancer at bay. Once Cash’s medication was cut off, his cancer came back out of remission.

Does prohibition kill children? Yes, definitely yes.

Does cannabis kill cancer? Yes, definitely yes.
