Dr. Christina Sanchez From Compultense University in Madrid, Spain, has been studying the anti-tumor effects of THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis for over a decade.
In this video she delivers information that explains exactly how THC kills cancer cells entirely – without adverse effects to healthy cells.
“Cells can die in different ways and, after cannabinoid treatment, they were dying in the ‘clean’ way. They were committing suicide, which is something you really want.”
Her research is an addition to other’s, such as British scientist, Wai Liu, an oncologist at the University of London’s St. George’s medical school. Liu’s research also reveals how THC has ‘potent anti-cancer activity,’ and can significantly ‘target and switch off’ pathways that allow cancers to grow.
Dr. Christina Sanchez has done some cutting edge research on cannabinoids as potential anti-tumoral agents in cancer from their laboratory in Madrid, Spain.
“We have seen cancer cells being killed in our petri dishes, with the healthy cells remaining intact,” stated Dr. Sanchez.
Dr. Sanchez says “I cannot understand why, in the States, cannabis is under Schedule I, because it is pretty obvious, not only from our work but from work from many other researchers that the plant has a very wide therapeutic potential.”
