A new cannabis study says cannabidiol, CBD, INHIBITS and KILLS cervical cancer cells
Over a quarter of a million women die each year of cervical cancer. Half a million new cases are diagnosed annually.
That’s almost one new case of cervical cancer diagnosed every minute!
A new study published last month suggests that extracts containing the non-psychoactive substance in marijuana, cannabidiol (CBD), INHIBITS and KILLS cervical cancer cells.
Conventional treatment for cervical cancer includes chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy. None have proven overwhelming effective and they all have serious side-effects.
In a recent study published in the open access, peer-reviewed journal – BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine (Lukhele and Motadi, 2016 16:335), researchers conclude that cannabidiol (CBD) extract, not THC, is effective in preventing cancer growth and killing certain types of cancer cells – namely cervical cancer.
The mechanism for this effect remains a mystery and more research is needed to determine the mechanism by which CBD might regulate the lifecycle of certain cancer cells.
