Dr. Christina Sanchez, a molecular biologist at Compultense University in Madrid Spain, has been working for the past 10 years on the anti-tumor effects of cannabinoids which are compounds found in the cannabis plant.
In the 1980s the body’s own cannabinoid receptors were discovered, which led to the understanding that our body must synthesize something that can bind to these receptors. A few years later the body’s own endo-cannabinoids were found, which are produced inside our bodies, and our endo-cannabinoid system was discovered.
We now know that the endo-cannabinoid system regulates a lot of our normal biological functions. Therefore the cannabis plant has enormous therapeutic potential.
During Dr. Sanchez’a research she discovered that tumor cells treated with the cannabinoid compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) resulted in eradication of the cancer and death of the cancer cells themselves. THC was found to have no toxic effects or side effects on non-tumor cells. Doctors and oncologists in Spain are very willing to use these compounds in treating cancer patients.
Another compound produced from the cannabis plat is cannabidiol (CBD). It has proven to be a very potent anti-oxidant that also kills cancer cells. The combination of THC and CBD produces a synergistic effect that potentiates the effect of THC.
There is ample evidence that the cannabinoids THC and CBD have anti-tumor properties, and have enormous therapeutic potential for the treatment of cancer, without the side effects experienced with chemotherapy.
Let us hope that doctors and the medical system in the USA, UK, Australia, and other countries can see beyond the profiteering from the use of chemotherapy, which is not designed to actually cure cancer, and instead open their minds to using proven and safe therapeutic approaches such as cannabinoids that actually target the cure of cancer without side effects and with less profit motivation.
