Does cannabis kill cancer cells?
Recenlty, the United States government alleged that cannabis cures cancer. The US government has added a page on the use of cannabis to their official cancer advice website.
Cannabis is usually an illegal drug which is made from the dried leaves and flowers of the hemp plant, and produces a feeling of pleasant relaxation when smoked or eaten. Cocaine and marijuana belongs to the this category.
Also, the National Cancer Institute, part of America’s Department of Health, now claims that ‘cannabinoids can be useful in treating the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment’ by smoking, eating it in baked products, drinking herbal teas or even spraying it under the tongue.
The website also listed other uses of cannabis such as anti-inflammatory activity, blocking cell growth, preventing the growth of blood vessels that supply tumours, antiviral activity and relieving muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis.
The information on the site also explains how cancer cells were killed by cannabis in mice.
The US government alleged that several studies have shown that cannabis shrink brain tumors by killing off cancer cells.
The controversy now is whether to legalize cannabis because of its medical importance. Cannabis have been widely abused over all the world and an overdose also could cause serious health hazards.
