Cannabis Treats Brain Cancer with Zero Psychoactive Effects

marijuanaWhat if you could ‘cure’ brain cancer, including rare types, without dangerous chemotherapy and radiation and without any psychoactive affects simply by using Cannabis? Forget corporate drug-pushers charging $10,000 a pill for chemotherapy drugs. There is a better way to treat brain cancer, found in a simple plant.
Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis have all been proven to help reduce cancerous tumors activate cannabinoid receptors in the body, and produce important endocannabinoids, the brain’s own disease fighters and mood boosters.
Cannabinoid receptors in the brain are responsible for regulating our mood, our appetite, and even our memory, but they also help cells to stay healthy. Endocannabinoids are a chemical compounds which we already make ourselves, but are also boosted by the use of Cannabis. It is a chemical compound that activates as the same receptors – delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active component of marijuana.
These chemical components of cannabis have been shown to help diminish or eliminate brain cancer in numerous studies. Endocannabinoids are important as far as our immune systems are concerned, and this may be part of the reason that several studies have linked them to brain cancer treatments. Not every strain of Cannabis has the same effect, but varied studies have shown that THC and other cannabinoids inhibit tumor growth.

(1.) One study published in the British Journal of Cancerconducted by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in Madrid, found that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids inhibited cancerous tumor growth. (2.) Another study in The Journal of Neuroscience examined the biochemical events in both acute neuronal damage and in slowly progressive, neurodegenerative diseases. THC was proven to protect the brain.
(3.) Yet another study in The Journal of Pharmacology found that Cannabidiol, a Nonpsychoactive Cannabinoid, had a beneficial effect on human glioma cell lines, having a significant positive effect and antitumor activity.
(4.) Finally, another study published in the journal, Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, which pointed out how brain tumors can normally be very resistant to other cancer treatments, responded very positively to a dual therapy of Cannabinoids and Temozolomide. Researchers were able to demonstrate the reversal of tumor activity in Glioblastoma multiforme.
Cannabis has hundreds of anti-cancer plant compounds and it costs pennies for treatment next to chemotherapy. The best part – you can take these active plant compounds without getting ‘high.’ The medicinal parts of the plant can be consumed without psychoactive results.
