STUDY Marijuana-Based CBD Oil Reduces Colon Cancer Cell Growth


The report, in the International Journal of Phototherapy and Psychopharmacology,  shows high-CBD cannabis extracts can help prevent cancerous growth from spreading.

The researchers used a high-CBD oil on actual patients and then studied the various lesions, polyps and tumors. They found that CBD stopped cancerous cells from spreading but did nothing to health, normal cells – meaning the healthy cells could regenerate. From the study’s abstract:


“CBD BDS and CBD reduced cell proliferation in tumoral, but not in healthy, cells. The effect of CBD BDS was counteracted by selective CB1 and CB2 receptor antagonists. Pure CBD reduced cell proliferation in a CB1-sensitive antagonist manner only. In binding assays, CBD BDS showed greater affinity than pure CBD for both CB1 and CB2 receptors, with pure CBD having very little affinity. In vivo, CBD BDS reduced AOM-induced preneoplastic lesions and polyps as well as tumor growth in the xenograft model of colon cancer.”

The study concluded that CBD reduced colon cancer and prevented it from spreading – though the researchers don’t sound to excited by it in their conclusion:

“The results may have some clinical relevance for the use of Cannabis-based medicines in cancer patients.”
