Biologist Explains How Marijuana Induces Cancer Cells To Kill Themselves
The curative potential of cannabis seems to be limitless, continuing far beyond than just relieving pain or nausea in the incurably ill. Christina Sanchez, Compultense University in Madrid, Spain is a molecular biologist that has been studying for 10 years and more the molecular activity of the chemical compounds called cannabinoids. During this time Sanchez and her colleagues found out that tetrahydrocannabinol, (THC), which is cannabis primary psychoactive component, induces cancer cells to kill themselves, and not damaging the healthy cells.
This incredible discovery was a little bit unexpected, because Sanchez and her team have actually analyxed brain cancer cells in order to better understand their functioning. But, they discovered that when tumoral cells were exposed to THC, they haven’t only terminated to multiply and generate, but destroyed themselves as well, both in animal trials and lab tests. Sanchez first revealed this in 1998, in the European biochemistry journal FEBS Letters with an article on the anti-cancer properties of THC.
One research from 1980s informed that the human body has two precise targets for THC. One is an endocannabinoid system that processes cannabinoids and THC and the other are various cannabinoid receptors. These natural systems let the body to have benefited from these cannabinoids that are found in cannabis and some of them only in cannabis.
The endocannabinoid system as it is now confirmed regulates many biological functions: appetite, motor behavior, food intake, reproduction, and many other functions. This is why this plant has such an enormous therapeutic potential.”
Canabis oil “Phoenix Tears” is already healing people of cancer
When consumed or inhaled, cannabinoids are included into the organism’s natural endocannabinoid system. The effect of this, demonstrated in animal models of brain and breast cancers, is that cancer cells came in the condition of apoptosis, meaning they destroy themselves.
Sanchez revealed that with cannabinoid treatment cells died in the clean way, committing a suicide. One of the good sides of cannabinoids is that they affect, categorically, the tumor cells. Normal, healthy cells don’t experience any toxic effect of cannabinoids. And this is a big different than standard chemotherapy that targets almost everything.
What Christina Sanchez is explaining here sounds really much like what Rick Simpson, a Canadian researcher does with his cannabis oil named “Phoenix Tears”. It is reported that this oil cured many people of cancer through the years without any harming effects like radiation and chemotherapy do.
