Can marijuana cure cancer?
We do not know for certain if the components in marijuana can cure cancer, but science would suggest it is possible.
Scientific studies show, cannabinoids are thought to hold qualities that present antitumor effects by introduction of cell death, restriction of cell growth, and inhibition of tumor cells from invading and overcoming healthy cells. In recent years, the science behind the medical benefits of cannabis and its healing properties have become a focus for patients and doctors alike.
“The American Cancer Society supports the need for more scientific research on cannabinoids for cancer patients, and recognizes the need for better and more effective therapies that can overcome the often debilitating side effects of cancer and its treatment.” -The American Cancer Society @ www.cancer.org
Treatment for everyone is different and should be discussed with your PCP and specialist(s). We DO NOT recommend relying solely on medical cannabis to treat cancer.
