Potential anti Cancer effects of medical cannabis - Frontier science

Background:
The major active component of the medicinal plant cannabis, Δ9-THC, has been shown in experiments with rats to have therapeutic potential against brain tumors. SETH Group scientists Garret Yount, Ph.D. and Sean McAllister, Ph.D. designed experiments in a time-lapse microscope to test whether Δ9-THC can stop the growth of human glioblastoma multiforma (GBM) brain cancer cells. Using the same tests that are used to judge new chemotherapies, the team discovered that the herbal compound kills human GBM cells at a concentration that is nontoxic to normal brain cells.

Implications:
No chemotherapy can match this nontoxic anti-cancer action. The implication is that this plant compound could be a safe medicine against brain tumors, without the side effects of chemotherapy. These exciting results may be just the tip of the iceberg, however, because Δ9-THC is only one of many active compounds in medicinal cannabis. Other active constituents of the Cannabis plant (called cannabinoids) are also likely to have a nontoxic anti-cancer action.

Brain Tumor Cells















The SETH Group brings together scientists dedicated to pursuing the most hopeful treatments for cancer. We are open-minded skeptics who believe that carefully controlled experiments can reveal if there is truth in novel therapies that might be integrated with conventional medical treatments.


WHY DID THIS DISCOVERY NEVER BREAK THRU ?
EVIDENCE FOR SELECTIVE ANTI-TUMOR ACTIVITY OF THC PUBLISHED IN PRESTIGIOUS NEURO-ONCOLOGY JOURNAL
SETH scientists discovered that THC, the major active compound in medical marijuana, can selectively kill human brain tumor cells in Petri dishes at non-toxic concentrations (see Featured Experiment). The work has been published in the peer-reviewed medical journal, The Journal of Neuro-Oncology (2005), volume 74, pages 31-40. A synthetic compound that mimics the activity of THC did not perform as well as the herbal compound in parallel tests.

This might support the story of Rick Simpson as told in the documentary 'Run from the Cure' The Rick Simpson story wich claims to cure various kinds of cancer with highly concentrated hemp oil (THC).
