Cannabis Compound Helps Fight Cancer

February 2nd, 2013 · No Comments

Researcher Sean McAllister was studying the effects of Cannabidiol, or CBD, a non-toxic, non-psychoactive chemical compound found in the cannabis plant and teamed up with Pierre Desprez, a molecular biologist studying ID-1, the gene that causes cancer to spread and determined that Cannabidiol could “turn off” the gene and stop the cancer from spreading.

The pair of scientists at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco have found that Cannabidiol works with many kinds of aggressive cancers – brain, prostate – any kind in which these high levels of ID-1 are present.”

The research has already undergone both laboratory and animal testing, and is awaiting permission for clinical trials in humans.
