Or you can just understand the Endo-cannabinoid system.. you know that system of receptors all over your body that controls the mechanisms to destroy
mutated cells. I wonder if there is something in nature that can boost that oh so important system...hmmmmm.... some plant maybe...
I just signed up to this website and I am amazed at the amount of disinformation and derailing going on...I even saw that moderators were deleting
posts regarding this unmentioned source of cannabinoids... ridiculous. Over 600 articles on Pubmed.gov... the U.S. defense dept. is now funding the
research being done at California Pacific Medical Center with CBD(cannabidiol). You people are utterly lost and confused it seems... so I am here to
help you. The researchers at CPMC recently went public with their research on how CBD prevents metastasis.. they already published research showing
that THC killed cancer cells as well as CBD.. but they found that when they were combined that a unique reaction occurred independently of the cb
receptors and was much stronger than either cannabinoid separately, but now that the defense dept is involved it seems that had to scrap using THC at
all. So it's just CBD for now, which is still very potent at fighting cancer. Human trials are coming up, they will be successful and you will finally
have a semi magic bullet for most cancers although they may introduce a weak version that only helps prevent metastasis at first so the pharmaceutical
companies can rake in a few more billion.
Here's a little clip of what they found before the government got involved...
"We therefore tested cannabidiol (CBD), the second most abundant plant derived cannabiniod, in combination with Δ9-THC. In U251 and SF126
glioblastoma cell lines, Δ9-THC and CBD acted synergistically to inhibit cell proliferation. The treatment of glioblastoma cells with both compounds
led to significant modulations of the cell cycle and induction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and apoptosis as well as specific modulations of
extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and caspase activities. These specific changes were not observed with either compound individually,
indicating that the signal transduction pathways affected by the combination treatment were unique. Our results suggest that the addition of CBD to
Δ9-THC may improve the overall effectiveness of Δ9-THC in the treatment of glioblastoma in cancer patients."
And here is the recent media release...
Although there is tons of good research in the works on cannabinoids vs cancer I found this very compelling and credible because one of the
researchers is trying to save his sister's life who has aggressive breast cancer.
