Cannabis chemicals slow down cancer

  1. 1. Cannabis chemicals slow down cancer Scientists Find Drastic Shrinkage, Even Complete Removal, Of Tumours In Brains Of Mice Brought to you by
  2. 2. Contd.. Chemicals found in cannabis extracts have been found to dramatically slow down the growth of brain cancer tumours. Two active chemical components found in cannabis plants called Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD) were tested as part of research into the treatment of brain cancer tumours by British scientists. Specialists at St George's, University of London, studied the treatment of brain cancer tumours in the laboratory and discovered that the most effective treatment was to combine active chemical components of the cannabis plant which are called cannabinoids.

  3. 3. Contd.. Cannabinoids are the active chemicals in cannabis and are also known more specifically as phytocannabinoids. There are 85 known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. The new research is the first to show that combining THC and CBD with irradiation has a drastic impact. Tumours growing in the brains of mice were drastically slowed down when THCCBD was used with irradiation. Wai Liu, lead researcher on the project, said, “The results are extremely exciting. The tumours were treated in a variety of ways, either with no treatment, the cannabinoids alone, and irradiation alone or with both the cannabinoids and irradiation at the same time. Those treated with both irradiation and the cannabinoids saw the most beneficial results and a drastic reduction in size.In some cases, the tumours effectively disappeared in the animals. This augurs well for further research in humans in the future.At the moment this is a mostly fatal disease. Brought to you by
  4. 4. Contd.. “The benefits of the cannabis plant elements were known before but the drastic reduction of brain cancers if used with irradiation is something new and may well prove promising for patients who are in gravely serious situations with such cancers in the future,“ he added. The research team is discussing the possibility of combining cannabinoids with irradiation in a human clinical trial. The rate of survival for human patients five years after diagnosis is just 10%. Cannabis is a controlled substance in the UK and is most commonly known as a recreational drug. The cannabis plant is known for its medicinal properties and has been used to relieve symptoms associated with diseases like cancer, HIVAIDS, multiple sclerosis, anorexia, anxiety, depression, and numerous other illnesses and conditions.
