The molecular biologist, Christina Sanchez, of Compultense university of Madrid, said in 1998 that tetrahydrocannabinol is the main psychoactive item in cannabis and makes cancer and tumors kill themselves as they leave healthy cells intact.
She said that THC exposure made tumor cells not grow and also kill themselves, showed lab and animal trials.
A Harvard study of 2007 is the best so far for THC and proves that THC fights tumors in just 3 weeks even, also lung cancer tumors in mice.
The chemical items are called cannabinoids and some body receptors can make medical effects in central nervous system and immunity. Commercial cannabinoid, nabilone and dronabinol are FDA approved for cancer effects.
Inhaled or consumed, cannabis cannabinoids get in our endocrine system and regulates appetite, food, motor moves and reproduction. So tumor cell get into apoptosis or suicide.
Cells die in different variations, but after cannabinoid, they die clean with suicide. Cannabis targets tumor cells and is not toxic for normal cells and this is much better than chemo. In USA, this is still Schedule I because it Is better than chemo.
The government said cannabis indeed shrinks tumors and cancer cells. This declaration was updated to the National Institute of drug abuse info sheet on medicinal cannabis. NIDA said animal studies claim cannabis kills sick cells.
Animal study results said extracts of whole marijuana shrinks brain tumor. Mice tests claimed this extract used with radiation, made more killing of cancer.
