For years, cancer patients have used marijuana to combat the side effects of chemotherapy.
But a new study furthers support for many patients’ belief that marijuana has the potential to impede the spread of cancer itself.
Japanese researches found that cannabidiol (CBD), the miracle of component of cannabis that has been shown to have profound efficacy as a pain reliever, also has an anti-proliferative effect on cancer cells.
CBD is obtained from its parent molecule, cannabidiolic acid (CBDA). Results of the current investigation revealed that CBDA inhibits migration of the highly invasive MDA-MB-231 human breast cancer cells.
The Marijuana Doctor at Precision Medical Group is excited that researchers continue to mount evidence that marijuana serves many medicinal purposes.
