Marijuana Can Stop The Spread Of Cancer

A pair of scientists at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco has found that a compound derived from marijuana could stop metastasis in many kinds of aggressive cancer, potentially altering the fatality of the disease forever.

"It took us about 20 years of research to figure this out, but we are very excited," said Pierre Desprez, one of the scientists behind the discovery, to The Huffington Post. "We want to get started with trials as soon as possible."

The Daily Beast first reported on the finding, which has already undergone both laboratory and animal testing, and is awaiting permission for clinical trials in humans.


Desprez, a molecular biologist, spent decades studying ID-1, the gene that causes cancer to spread. Meanwhile, fellow researcher Sean McAllister was studying the effects of Cannabidiol, or CBD, a non-toxic, non-psychoactive chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. Finally, the pair collaborated, combining CBD and cells containing high levels of ID-1 in a petri dish.

"What we found was that his Cannabidiol could essentially 'turn off' the ID-1," Desprez told HuffPost. The cells stopped spreading and returned to normal.

Thanks for posting this..

It has been know for several years that cdb suicides cells that cancer attaches too but many behind the scenes players don't want us to know that.. Edible oils made from whole cannabis plant extractions ARE the cure for many different types of cancers..

Please keep in mind though that there is a huge difference between street pot and medical grade cannabis..

Guaranteed the us fed government will still not reclassify cannabis tho.. Refer madness is still alive and well it seems..

It used to be required that people grow hemp in their gardens. Everything about cannabis is good. Good for the people but bad for greedy fucking big pharma who would lose their fortune if it was used for the public good.

yeah, so many factors as to why pot is still illegal...

the wood/paper industry is against marijuana legalization because they would lose their asses once we started using hemp paper and stopped wasting trees for paper products.

big tobacco/booze companies are against it.

big pharma/government doesn't want it because obviously it helps sick people, and we all know there's no money to be made from a healthy person..

While I don't agree with smoking anything(for obvious reasons), I am 100% supportive of oils/foods/capsules made with cannabis. I would ALWAYS prefer cannabis over opiates, which are revolting and have broken entire civilizations.

Everything is good? the lethargy is good? what about the paranoia? weight gain? yes it's all good.
