New Study Finds Cannabis Effective in Fighting Liver Cancer

WSJ Team October 19, 2012 2

The Tehran University of Medical Science has published a paper in Toxicology Mechanisms and Methods, in which they state that they have found that cannabis to be effective in the treatment of liver cancer.

Researchers used two types of artificial cannabis called CB65 and ACEA.  They wrote in their paper that the two cannabinoids reduced cancer cell viability and interfered with cancer growth.

Previous studies done by other researchers have demonstrated that cannabinoids inhibit cell growth in many types of cancers including brain, lymphoma, prostate, lungs, breast and pancreatic cancer cells.

Researchers are stating that they believe there is clear evidence that cannabis could be an effective treatment against cancer.  Yet, the federal government and the medical community at large is standing staunch in their views that there is no medical use for marijuana.

Marijuana has no known side effects and will not only keep the cancer from spreading, but will also fight depression and other side effects associated with chemotherapy including nausea and pain.

    My husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December of 2011. We found it early and he underwent the Whipple procedure to remove one third of his pancreas, stomach, all of his gall bladder and 17 lymph nodes. He did six months of chemo and was doing well until December of last year. The cancer returned, this time in his liver. He is going through chemo again, but it is much harsher and stronger than the first (Gemcidabine). His brother told us about marijuana oil and he located some ear wax marijuana to try. I will post updates…

    I’m a believer. I have gotten my Mom on water soluble BioCBD and had given out bottles as Bday gifts. My Mom was on Hospice with lung and liver cancer in the Spring of 2013, not given much of a chance to live. Now, she has been off of Hospice for 2 years now and continues to look and feel great. She had steroid shots and now has incorporated the CBD oil in her regime and feels a noticeable difference. She is walking between 5-10 thousand steps a day, not bad for someone who wasn’t supposed to survive the summer of 2013. – Sally
