Researchers have discovered that cannabidiol (CBD) found in the cannabis plant has the ability to ‘switch off’ the gene responsible for metastasis in an aggressive form of breast cancer called ‘triple negative.”
This form, which affects 15% of patients, doesn’t have three hormone receptors that the most successful therapiestarget. Cells from this cancer have high levels of ID-1. When scientists exposed cells from this cancer to cannabidiolthey were shocked to find the cells returned to a healthy normal state. They discovered that the compound had turned off the over-expression of ID-1, stopping them from travelling to distant tissues.
Oil made from cannabis buds, ingested 3 x daily, for two months, will destroy breast cancer cells and should certainly be considered by those diagnosed with the disease. Cannabis oil is easy to produce, has no toxic effects, is extremely effective and can be safely taken alongside conventional treatments.
Other potentially treatable cancers that respond well to cannabis oil extract are forms of leukaemia, lung, ovarian andbrain cancers, which also have high levels of ID-1. Research into other forms of cancer indicates similar results.
Scientists at California Pacific Medical Center who have been researching marijuana compounds for over 20 years confirm that cannabidiol, or CBD, has the ability to switch off the DNA that causes breast and other types of cancers to metastasize. CBD is the second-most abundant cannabinoid within marijuana, but does not cause the psychotropic high of THC. Scientist Pierre Despre reports, “We started by researching breast cancer, but now we’ve found thatcannabidiol works with many kinds of aggressive cancers – brain, prostate – any kind in which these high levels of ID-1 are present.”
