marijuana anti cancer1 263x166 Molecular Biologist Explains How THC Kills Cancer CompletelyFrom Compultense University in Madrid, Spain, Dr. Christina Sanchez has been studying the anti-tumor effects of THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis, for over a decade. She delivers sound information that explains exactly how THC kills cancer cells entirely – without adverse effects to healthy cells.

Her research is an addition to other’s work, such as British scientist, Wai Liu, an oncologist at the University of London’s St. George’s medical school. Liu’s research also reveals how THC has ‘potent anti-cancer activity,’ and can significantly ‘target and switch off’ pathways that allow cancers to grow.

Liu points out that pharmaceutical companies spend billions on drugs that do the very same thing, while the cannabis plant does it naturally. In the following video, Dr. Sanchez explains exactly how THC does the dirty work of eliminating cancer cells by activating the body’s own cannabinoid receptors, creating endocannabinoids. What’s more, is cannabis can do this without any psychoactive effects.

“There’s quite a lot of cancers that should respond quite nicely to these cannabis agents,” Liu said. “If you talk about a drug company that spent billions of pounds trying to develop these new drugs that target these pathways, cannabis does exactly the same thing – or certain elements of cannabis compounds do exactly the same thing – so you have something that is naturally produced which impacts the same pathways that these fantastic drugs that cost billions also work on.”

This comes at an important time when states are legalizing medical marijuana and the federal government is receiving pressure to de-list cannabis as an illegal drug – an archaic and erroneous definition of a plant which the Feds say ‘has no medicinal value’, even though they hold numerous patents on the plant. The feds are still fighting marijuana, despite having numerous patents on the plant.

Patent No. 6,630,507, for example, is for cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants. Could this be why they are dragging their feet on declassifying this valuable plant?

In fact, three scientists from the Department of Health and Human Services said in the abstract — or summary — of their findings submitted with the patent application:

“The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroproectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke or trauma, or the treatment of neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.”

Surely they knew it could treat cancer too.

In Hindu texts cannabis was known as ‘sacred grass.’ It has also been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Cannabis can replace toxic medications, and drastically reduce pain. Dr. Sanchez’s studies just add to the age-old wisdom surrounding the medicinal use of this phenomenal plant.

    Dragging their feet while the pink ribbon suckers keep rolling along! How sad is it that our world is run by money and greed, as this proves once again!

  • Jalene

    I am Hindu and the “sacred grass” in Hindu scripture and worship is “kusha” grass not even close to the same genus as marijuana. I am not aware of any Hindu spiritual path that includes marijuana use of any kind let alone being in the Vedic scriptures. Nor am I aware of any Hindu healers ever using marijuana in their practice. There are many plants that heal that Hindu’s use and the basic healing understanding is that the foods we eat daily are our medicine for a healthy mind, body and soul.

    I often referred to congress as treasoness for this very reason. The illegal action of criminalizing so beneficial a plant is literally treason. It was so back in the late 30′s and it is still so today.

    Onions, garlic, turmeric do all this with no psychoactive effect and kills the bacteria causing your body order.

      Very true tmas; (but you can’t make clothing, fuel and cooking oil, rope, automobile bodies stronger than steel, 2×4′s etc, stronger than wood or steel, the list goes on), out of the fine foods you mentioned. This is why the drug, cotton, steel, etc. industries have been fighting to keep even non narcotic hemp off of the market. Too much competition!
      Back about the time the Declaration of Independence was written on hemp by Thomas Payne, (and re-written) by his good friend Thomas Jefferson, farmers were required to put aside at least 5 acres to grow hemp for paper.

      No Psychoactive Effect?
      What a rip off.

    They obviously are being controlled by the people that stand to loose a lot of money!!Keeping people sick and hanging on ,is a huge moneymaking racket!!!!Do you really think. these people are going to admit and. deny!
