Even though there are a lot of examples and personal experiences that cannabis really offers a wide range of therapeutic properties, it is still regarded as an illegal drug in most parts of the world, even by the United Nations. Since there still haven’t been any human trials on whether cannabis kills cancer cells, we won’t be sure 100%.

But, there are however numerous studies in peer reviewed scientific journals that have clearly outlined the antitumoral effects of cannabis.  Here’s a list of some:

The British Journal of Cancer has published a study conducted by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in Madrid, where it was determined that Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids inhibit tumor growth. THC was found to decrease tumor cells in two out of the nine patients without causing any side-effects.

The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics published a study where it was already accepted that cannabinoids possess anti-cancer properties. In this study it was examined the examined the effect of cannabidiol   (CBD, non psychoactive cannabinoid compound) on human glioma (brain tumor) cell lines. It was concluded that cannabidiol was able to produce significant antitumor activity.

The Journal Molecular Cancer published a study where it was revealed that THC reduced tumour growth and tumour numbers by inhibiting cancer cell proliferation with cannabinoids. This induces cancer cell apoptosis and impairs tumour angiogenesis.

The American Journal of Cancer published a study where it was determined that cannabinoid receptors are expressed in human pancreatic tumor cell lines and tumour biopsies at much higher levels than in normal pancreatic tissue. In this study as well was shown that cannabinoid administration induces apoptosis.

The US National Library of Medicine published a study conducted by Harvard Medical School where it was investigated the role of cannabinoid receptors in lung cancer cells. They confirmed the effectiveness and suggested it to be used for lung cancer treatment. They also published a study conducted by the Institute of Toxicology and Pharmacology, from the Department of General Surgery in Germany, where it was determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell invasion.

We could go on and on with this list, but the truth is there are tons more peer reviewed studies showing that the active constituents within cannabis play a significant role in killing cancer cells. But, besides having hundreds of studies that show cannabis’ effectiveness, there still haven been any official human trials. Nonetheless, this hasn’t stopped many individuals into trying to cure their cancer with cannabis. There is thousands of success stories, among which is the well known case of Mykayla Comstock. . In Mykala’s case, thecell counts affected by cannabis decreased as soon as she began cannabis treatment, from a 51 % lymphoblast count in July of 2012 all the way to 0 % in August of 2012. July 30th was the very last time they found lymphoblasts in Mykayla’s blood smear.

Other great example is the case of a teenage girl who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia with a Philadelphia chromosome mutation. The mutation led to a more aggressive case of Leukemia, and when the acute and aggressive chemotherapy as well as bone marrow transplants failed, the family decided to try with hemp oil.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the Federal government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH), stated that marijuana “inhibited the survival of both estrogen receptor–positive and estrogen receptor–negative breast cancer cell lines.”

Luckily, more and more countries accept and acknowledge the health benefits of medical marijuana. But, cannabis doesn’t stop with treating cancer. It is also very beneficial in treating numerous others illnesses.
