Cancer Cells Killed by Cannabis

A study has been done by a group of scientists at St. George’s university in London, which debated over how effective cannabis can be in shrinking brain tumors.

This study founded that the most common cannabinoids in marijuana would help to weaken cancer cells and make them more susceptible to radiation.

Huge reductions were noticed when the two ( tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidol) were used together.

The National Institute on Drug abuse recently reported that studies have been done on animals proving that marijuana can help to reduce cancer cells and also help kill certain types of cancers.

This is a huge step in cancer fighting treatments as cannabis can be a great medical benefit to those that are suffering with cancer.
