Medical Marijuana Gains Widespread Acceptance for Treatment of Cancer

Cannabis has recently gained widespread acceptance from the international medical and scientific communities for being an effective treatment for a wide variety of cancers, including ceasing or reversing progress of the core disease, as well as effectively treating several of its symptoms. With more than 100 types of cancer afflicting tens of millions of people - including cancers of the lungs, skin, colon, prostate, and brain - breast cancer in both men and women continues to be the most prevalent type of this disease. It is estimated that one in eight women will, at some point in their lives, develop the disease, which is the most common type of cancer among females. It accounts for about 10-15 percent of all cases of cancer in women globally.

Scientific Studies Reveal the Medicinal Powers of Both THC and CBD

Some studies have revealed that cannabinoid receptors are overexpressed in the tumors of particular cancers, such as those of the breast, liver, lungs, and prostate. Cannabinoids from cannabis bind with these overexpressed receptors and either switch off the cell's ability to divide and replicate or simply kill it (apoptosis).

In this manner, multiple cannabinoids (CBD and THC) can work in tandem with the body's endocannabinoid system to induce cancer cell death, inhibit cell growth, or prevent the metastasis (spread)) of cancer cells. In addition, cannabinoids help prevent good, healthy cells from being damaged by neighboring or traveling cancer cells. Cannabis also delivers no major negative side effects, unlike most pharmaceutical therapies, opiates for pain management, and chemotherapy.

The potential uses of medical marijuana for cancer patients are becoming more well known among patients and oncologists. A study conducted in a state with legalized medicinal and recreational marijuana published in CANCER-- a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society -- found that approximately one quarter of surveyed patients used marijuana in the past year, mostly for physical and psychological symptoms. Another study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology found that about half of oncologists recommended medical marijuana to their cancer patients.
