A THC cancer study shows that it has the power to inhibit breast tumors
BREAST CANCER STATISTICS
Breast cancer is unfortunately a plague that affects 1 in 8 U.S. women. An estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected in 2017; along with 63,410 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. This THC breast cancer study may be a new shining light.
WHAT’S THE GOOD NEWS?
This THC cancer study published by the Journal of Biological Chemistry displayed the extraordinary power of THC on cancer cells.
An experiment was performed on mice with tumors and on human breast cancer cells. Researchers found that the cannabinoid receptors CB2 and GPR55 worked hand-in-hand to create unique signaling properties with anti-tumor effects.
This brings to light potential benefits of cannabinoids against tumors. Dr. Peter McCormick, a researcher of THC from the University of East Anglia, says
THC, the major active component of marijuana, has anti-cancer properties
He suggest patients have the THC professionally administered if they do not want the psychoactive effects on cognition. You are able to limit the effects on your mental state while still maintaining optimal anti-tumor effects.
