Extra: THC, the main cannabis cannabinoid kills brain cancer, but still has no medical value.

New Spanish research confirms earlier studies that THC, the main cannabinoid in cannabis (marijuana) kills brain cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact. Researchers in Spain’s Complutense University have for years been studying the anti-cancer properties of cannabis. They have published dozens of papers on how the cannabinoids from the cannabis plant, and also those made by our own bodies, can help prevent and treat different types of cancer.

  • Among the Spanish researchers’ most impressive results have been in attacking some of the fastest-growing and most fatal cancers, those of the brain. Gliomas, or recurrent glioblastoma multiforme, often kill quickly. These were they type studied in the Spanish research. Treatment with THC for a month caused the glioma cells to die while normal brain cells thrived.

American universities and research organizations over the past 30 years of the drug war have obeyed an anti-cannabis political correctness. A generation of medical research on cannabinoids has been lost in the USA. Clear indicators of potential anti-cancer properties of cannabis surfaced in research out of the Virginia Medical College in 1974. These findings were scarcely reported in the press, ignored by researchers and discouraged by the government. Tragically, cannabinoid anti-cancer research soon disappeared, at least in the USA.

  • Luckily researchers in other parts of the world were less guided by doctrine and more by science, so research in places such as Madrid, Salerno and, especially, Jerusalem, continued. Actually, major anti-cancer findings of cannabis were reported by this same Spanish university back in 2000, but again essentially ignored by the American press. Even today’s news may suffer the same fate.

The property of THC to kill brain cancer cells contrasts totally with the DEA’s Schedule I classification of the drug, claiming it has no medical uses.

  • Surely this is enough evidence alone to end the cruel charade that cannabis is without medical value.
  • Surely cannabis, THC and all the plant cannabinoids can be down scheduled to Schedule V without delay.

  2. Every day this sacred plant remains prohibited due to governments complicity in pharmaceutical monopolization of our bodies is not only a travesty, its a crime against humanity.

    How many lives could have been potentially saved if the insane and racist decisions of those who call ourselves our leaders had been based in truth and openness as opposed to deceit and covering up facts for profit.

    Its not even an act of ignorance on their behalf its pure greed.

  3. Yes it is sad that there seems to be people against cannabinoid research. While I wait for cannabinoids to be legal I am going to smoke this cannabinoid which is legal

    Good stuff and I don’t have to worry about buying illegal stuff from shady characters (of course we know it is not because of the marijuana, it is a consequence of prohibition).

  4. juleigh I hope you get to see this post. Cannabis is indeed a wonderful plant put here for our use as a medicine. It’s medical use has been documented for thousands of years as a Panacea(Panacea means “Cure All.” Please check out the video “Run From The Cure” on youtube or go to Phoenixtears.ca You can watch a video that will give you instructions on how to make a very potent Cannabis oil that has been used by thousands of people to kill all kinds of cancer and other intrusive diseases. Please watch it and I leave you with my hope that you too will rid yourself of this burden. Peace and love to you.

  5. Actually contrary to popular belief, unless you smoke pot everyday, it is only in your system a couple of days. Although if they do a hair test on you it will show up forever. Anyway back to your question, it might work, couldn’t hurt, but as for your farewell smoke, one will never be enough and two is always too many! Best of luck in all you affairs!

  6. this is exactly why its illegal, because its medicine you can grow in you backyard=no money for big pharma companies, thats the big scam with capitalism, yah your free to get as rich as you want but the richer you get the poorer the poor get

  7. Folks, here are the only reasons marijuana is illegal: The Cotton Industry, The Lumber Industry, The Paper Industry, The Oil Industry, The Pharmaceutical Industry. Now, go and do some deep research and you will see that it is all about money, and the currently established industries and the threat the legal hemp poses to them. Hemp can create a greener environment, offer incredible medicinal properties and cure disease, it’s more versatile than any cotton product for cloth and other textiles, it can make 12 times the paper products as lumber and all grow back in a year, it’s seeds are more nutritious than soy and used (secretly) to feed the world’s hungry because it is so good for you, and the seed’s oils can replace many oils we use today for mechanical things. I could go on. Folks, it is the biggest scam of the power hungry corporations ever to keep hemp illegal. It has NOTHING to do with anything else…guaranteed. What amazes me, is that legalizing it…if only for industrial uses, would create jobs, make a greener environment, and just help all the way around. By the way, they already know how to grow it without the THC. Research it. Think about it. This will save our country.

  8. There are other cannabinoids which are showing promise as neuron regenerators. They are synthetic, but very well worth it. This cannabinoid:http://www.herbavigor.com/html/cannibinoids.html has been used by many people who suffer from pain and I hope that soon they will do research into it as a neuron regenerator because I am almost sure that it has those properties. I have used this cannabinoid for about a year and a half and I must say it has potential.
