New Study Finds THC Kills Stomach Cancer Cells

A new study conducted by the the Catholic University of Korea, College of Medicine, and published in the journal Anticancer Research, has found promising evidence that THC may be the best medicine available to treat stomach cancer,thc1 especially when traditional medicine has been ineffective.

During the study researchers used cancer cells that were resistant to chemotherapy, and dosed the cells with a synthetic form of delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the primary compounds found in cannabis. Researchers noted a drastic reduction in the survival rate of the cells that were exposed to the synthetic THC.

When conducting the study researchers found that larger doses of THC led to higher rates of cancer cell death, validating the initial finding that it can be an effective treatment (natural THC is likely even more effective).

Although more research is needed, hopefully this study – in addition to numerous others that have been released recently – will pave the way for cannabis being used as a standard – and not alternative – medicine in treating various forms of cancer.

      Hi Danny, first let me say I am Not a doctor and i obviously don’t know the full detail of your condition. However, I have had stomach issues (ulcers, reflux, gerd) my whole life I the only thing that legitimately helps the pain, nausea, etc. is smoking marijuana. I am sure thc in pill form would do the same. I eat old people food to not irritate it too (bland diet). Also, I’d drop the pain meds if I were you, they are notorious for making stomach pain worse. Hope this helps

      Daniel,why don’t you make your own RSO.Its not hard if you follow the instructions.You have a medical card so you can get the right starting product which is very important.Educate yourself and make your own medicine.

    While I strongly support cannabis research, I should point out an important detail: THC was not used in the study; WIN 55,212-2 was used. It also a cannabinoid receptor agonist, and often produces the same effects as other cannabinoids.

    Great article.We know it works but we need more of these studies.The link takes you to a page that you need to pay to read the PDF for the study.Is there any way to access it without paying?

      Have you asked if she would be open to eating cannabis (like in brownies) or vaporizing (which is not smoking)? It is easy to make your own brownies or to find a vape-pen.
