When National Cancer Institute came forward with a statement that marijuana kills cancer cells, news blow up like a bomb not only in USA but also through the world. Many people that fight for total legalization of marijuana saw this as step forward to it.

National Cancer Institute recently has published on their website news that tests conducted on mousses infected with tumors has shown that a marijuana, actually its THC and CBD elements attack and destroy cancer stations.


According to their study, marijuana active element delta-9 THC attacks cells of breast and liver cancer and makes them retreat and eventually die, thus stopping a further cancer cell growth.

This is astounding news. NCI further states that cannabinoid not only kills cancer cells but protects healthy cells from being infected. It also halts a red blood cells form feeding the tumor, thus making it recede and die, leaving organs healthy.

This news is not new to people that are familiar to marijuana effects. Initiative for legalization of marijuana are trying for years for these kind of tests to be run, but heavy lobbing form various pharmaceutical groups where standing in the way.


What else these tests showed?

Test also showed when combined with marijuana, chemotherapy side effects are reduced by large.

Delta-9 THC is been proved to reduce side effects of chemotherapy such as vomiting, loss of appetite and most importantly, reduces pain of the patients.

Appetite increase is first of many positive effects of marijuana and patients are reported that are no longer burdened with nausea when receiving chemotherapy. They can normally eat, as the study shows, because THC stimulates appetite.

Pain reducing effect is probably most important one, for obvious reasons. Without need for heavy medication to reduce pain, marijuana offers new way for a pin to go away. Also, there is no body harm or fear of addiction like when using morphine or other painkillers that are creating heavy addiction. Also, other painkillers don’t have such pain relieving effect as marijuana does.

All above is very important news because it confirms everything that marijuana users are claiming for years and years. It is also one more step for a worldwide legalization of this extraordinary plant.

In Europe, they conducting test also and a results are very similar. One by one, obstacles for legalization of marijuana are falling beneath our eyes and lobbying from big pharmaceutical companies is crumbling in front of facts and studies like this.

What this means for a cancer patients?

Hopefully, this means that we can expect a marijuana total legalization and mass production of THC and CBD oil for cancer treatment and a right to cure ourselves as we see fit.

Maybe, and just maybe, we can give a people with cancer, and children too, a fighting chance in combat against this deadly disease. Also, it can be one step in beating cancer permanently and putting it on list of diseases that are no longer are on planet Earth, along with plague, leper and others.
