Cannabidiol Can Kill Multiple Myeloma Cells

Multiple myeloma is a type of cancer that begins in the bone marrow, and has a median survival rate of around 3 years. According to a study published in the most recent issue of the International Journal of Cancer, cannabidiol, a compound found in cannabis, can slow, and even kill multiple myeloma cancer cells.

“Multiple myeloma (MM) is a plasma cell (PC) malignancy characterised by the accumulation of a monoclonal PC population in the bone marrow (BM). Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with antitumoural activities”, begins the study’s abstract.

After studying the effects of cannabidiol on multiple myeloma cells, researchers found that; “CBD by itself or in synergy with BORT strongly inhibited growth, arrested cell cycle progression and induced MM cells death by regulating the ERK, AKT and NF-κB pathways with major effects in TRPV2+ cells.” They conclude that; “These data provide a rationale for using CBD to increase the activity of proteasome inhibitors in MM.”

The study, which validates a recent National Institute of Health study which also found that cannabidiol can inhibit cancer cells, was conducted by researchers at the School of Pharmacy at the University of Camerino in Italy.

  1. I have had smoldering myeloma for 30 years with no symptoms. This past year the myeloma became active and caused tumors. I just completed chemo with velcade revlimid
    and dexamethasone.I am scheduled for autologous stem cell transplant next month.I have been a marijuana user for many years.
    The doctors want me to stop using during this treatment so I have except for a pain cream I have to use due to nerve damage from velcade. The reason they gave me was because of drug screen required. Is anyone aware of problems caused by marujuana? Doctors seem very ignorant of marijuana benefits.

  2. Hi i was diagnosed with cancer of the bone marrow MM Stage 2 last August 2018. I am now confined at the Mkati Medical Center for 4 months. I had chemo for one month onlyand radiation therapy for 5 days. Tomorrow i will start my Chemo again. I am very much confused and i want to know if cannabis oil can cure this kind of cancer. Also, what is Cannabidiol? I am interested to know more about this. Thank you

  4. I had a cell transplant in late 2008,after a half year Ineeded maintenance “revlimid”.abou a half year ago,the light chai n started to s how up and since 4 month I’v been taking “pomalist” with twice a week a dosage of decadron. It has gone up a little every month! I’m so interested in canabis,please let me know.I’ in fairly good health and the doctor does’t seem to worry,but he doesn’t feel the side effects!

    • Martin, I had a stem cell transplant June ’08 and had been on Revlmid since then as maintenance. Have been in remission for awhile now. Unfortunately, I now have MDS, and will start chemo for that next week, it was directly responsible for this cancer, and guess what, I have to have another stem cell transplant and this time it will be donor driven wherein the first one I had was my own stem cells.
      Right now, Colorado is the forefront for this type of CBD study

  5. My mother has MM. She used to take Alceran first year, and now she has been taking Thalidomid for a year. MM is partly in remission. I am afraid – how those medecines affect other parts of the body. I am thinkkng aboht this oil. I don’t know – should she take Thalidomide with the oil. Or just oil.

  6. My father has MM, going on 6 yrs and 3 mo. This study really sounds great. After researching… I would like to know where I can buy in the USA? Any idea?

    • Jen, I had a stem cell transplant and have been in remission for almost 3 years. Except for the damage done to my ribs, I can do almost anything that I want. My back was really damaged too, but oddly enough, its the ribs that give me problems. I am also now using Frankincense and taking Pau di Arco. Someone just hooked me up with this website. So I plan on doing this too, but I wanted to send encouragement to your father.

      • Hello, have you tried the CBD and if did it work well for you? I have MM, too and am thinking of trying CBD. What positive results have you gotten ftom the pau de arco? Thank you.
