Study: CBD and THC Enhances the Anticancer Effects of Radiation

A new study publishedcannabisplant this month in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that the cannabis compounds cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) enhance the anticancer effects of radiation in an orthotopic murine glioma model.
