Well we hope so, since we already have heard back form many undocumented “test subjects” that cannabis actually works!
In a new story form LeafScience they tell us that the trials for breast and brain cancer are ready to start but they are still trying to raise the money for the trials. Dr. Sean McAllister, of the California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC), has spent nearly a decade studying the effects of cannabidiol (CBD) – a chemical found in marijuana – on aggressive types of breast and brain cancer.
Another of his studies, this time in glioblastoma cell cultures, found that CBD and THC could work together to achieve an even greater effect, concluding that “the addition of cannabidiol to Delta(9)-THC may improve the overall effectiveness of Delta(9)-THC in thetreatment of glioblastoma in cancer patients.”
His research has already shown that cannabidiol (CBD) can reduce the spread of cancer to other parts of the body. Although, so far, he’s only been able to study animal and cell culture models. Now he says his team is ready to prove it in humans.
Dr. McAllister’s breakthrough came in 2007, when his team at CPMC showed that cannabidiol could reduce tumor aggressiveness in breast cancer by “turning off” a protein responsible for the spread of cancer, or metastasis, called Id-1.
We really hope they manage to get the trials going, since we are sure they will find great results.
We had our fist wow experience with a 1:1 THC/CBD strains that removed a friends terminal brain tumors within a couple of months 3 years ago. We knew we were on to something wonderful after that. More CBD in the cannabis is good both for the healing and the enjoyment of smoking some good cannabis. Next up is getting it legalized to grow for everybody to have ready for when they need it!
