A compound found in cannabis ‘CBD’ may stop breast cancer spreading throughout the body, US scientists believe.
And A 2nd News Report: A New Cancer Treatment From A Natural Plant Compound!
SIDE NOTE: Cannabis Based Treatment For Cancer Patients, Should NEVER Be Used In Place Of Traditional Cancer Treatments. But Used “In Conjunction” With The Traditional Medical Forms Of Cancer Treatments.
The California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute team are hopeful that cannabidiol or CBD could be a non-toxic alternative to chemotherapy.
Unlike cannabis, CBD does not have any psychoactive properties so its use would not violate laws, Molecular Cancer Therapeutics reports.
The authors stressed that they were not suggesting patients smoke marijuana.
They added that it would be highly unlikely that effective concentrations of CBD could be reached by smoking cannabis.
This compound offers the hope of a non-toxic therapy that could achieve the same results without any of the painful side effects
Lead researcher Dr Sean McAllister
CBD works by blocking the activity of a gene called Id-1 which is believed to be responsible for the aggressive spread of cancer cells away from the original tumour site – a process called metastasis.
Past work has shown CBD can block aggressive human brain cancers.
The latest work found CBD appeared to have a similar effect on breast cancer cells in the lab.
Lead researcher Dr Sean McAllister said: “Right now we have a limited range of options in treating aggressive forms of cancer.
“Those treatments, such as chemotherapy, can be effective but they can also be extremely toxic and difficult for patients.
“This compound offers the hope of a non-toxic therapy that could achieve the same results without any of the painful side effects.”
Dr Joanna Owens of Cancer Research UK said: “This research is at a very early stage.
“The findings will need to be followed up with clinical trials in humans to see if the CBD is safe, and whether the beneficial effects can be replicated.
“Several cancer drugs based on plant chemicals are already used widely, such as vincristine – which is derived from a type of flower called Madagascar Periwinkle and is used to treat breast and lung cancer. It will be interesting to see whether CBD will join them.”
Maria Leadbeater of Breast Cancer Care said: “Many people experience side-effects while having chemotherapy, such as nausea and an increased risk of infection, which can take both a physical and emotional toll.
“Any drug that has fewer side-effects will, of course, be of great interest.”
But she added: “It is clear that much more research needs to be carried out.”
Currently “Only” the UK is currently running medical testing with CBD on ‘Live Breast Cancer Patients”. & Given the USA past history with “Cannabis Based Drug” I would not expect them to due any “Medical CBD Testing” here in the USA on Any “Live Breast Cancer Patient Subjects” For many many years from now! Ball Park 10 to 15 Years Min! Which
in my thought that how many 10,000 to 100,000 US Based Cancer Patients Are Going To DIE! Before The US Administration & The FDA gets off their butts. & Start testing this derivative of the Cannabis Plant on the sick & dieing Cancer patients here in the USA.
I am Not a Doctor Or A Scientist
But I personally have seen 1 lady that Breast Cancer is litterly “Eating Its Way Thru Her Entire Family” 1 dead all ready, 1 more in the hospital as I type this thats dieing, another being told that they need to remove a breast, & This lady who 3 days before Xmas got that bad news that she has a cancer lump in her beast, Which was causing a great pain on her breast nipple, & That within 8 to 10 days, Of starting the CBD Treatment, That pain in her breast nipple was GONE!
I am NOT a DR! I am NOT saying this is a miracle cure!
I am just saying that “The Scientists Here in The USA” Needs To Start Testing This CBD Right NOW!
How many more cancer patients are going to have to die…?
Before the USA FEDS gets off there butts & instructs the FDA to get the “Live Cancer Patients Clinical Medical Testing” going on CBD ASAP!
CDB doesn’t even get you high, There Are ZERO Physcotropics in CBD!
