Cannabidiol Inhibits Tumor Cells Without Side Effects, Says New Study

A new study published by the National Institute of Health has found that cannabidiol – a cannabis compound – attacks tumor cells, inhibiting them from further growth, by affecting “multiple tumoral features and molecular pathways”.

“In the present study, we found that CBD inhibited U87-MG and T98G cell proliferation and invasiveness in vitro and caused a decrease in the expression of a set of proteins specifically involved in growth, invasion and angiogenesis”, claims the study’s researchers.

“In addition, CBD treatment caused a dose-related down-regulation of ERK and Akt prosurvival signaling pathways in U87-MG and T98G cells and decreased hypoxia inducible factor HIF-1α expression in U87-MG cells.”

They continue; “Taken together, these results provide new insights into the antitumor action of CBD, showing that this cannabinoid affects multiple tumoral features and molecular pathways.”

The study concludes; “As CBD is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid that appears to be devoid of side effects, our results support its exploitation as an effective anti-cancer drug in the management of gliomas.”

The study – which can be found by clicking here – was conducted at the Centre of Neuroscience at the University of Insubria in Italy.

  1. I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2010. I am 55, African American, female with no family history of multiple myeloma. My doctor is an MD and does not feel cannabinoids will assist me with my issue. I am healthy but have been on 5 different medications due to meds not working. I am currently on oral chemo, subQ Valcade and dex.
    How can or if cannabinoid can help me? I want to live a long quality life, so what form will help me if it will help me?

    Thanks

    • Do not listen to you MD. Get on an edible cannabis oil ASAP and take your health into your own hands. Your doctor will not suggest a treatment that in no way benefits the medical field. Meaning if they don’t make money from it, it’s not a viable treatment option. I know this sounds very ” conspiracy theoryish” but remember, no one cares about your life more than you. Good luck with your treatment.

    • Cannabis kills cancer. Follow the money and you will learn why doctors
      do not want anyone to know why cannabis is not prescribed.
