Salerno, Italy: Naturally occurring compounds in cannabis possess anti-tumor properties and present a novel approach for cancer treatment, according to a scientific review published in the February issue of the journal Best Practice & Research: Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Investigators at the University of Salerno in Italy report that cannabinoids limit cancer cell proliferation and induce tumor-selective cell death.

Cannabinoids inhibit "tumor growth and migration, angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels to cancerous tumors), [and] metastasis (the transfer of malignant cells from one site to another)," authors concluded. "Emerging evidence suggests that agonists of cannabinoid receptors ... may offer a novel strategy to treat cancer."

A 2008 review in the journal Cancer Research reported that the administration of cannabinoids halts the spread of a wide range of cancers, including brain cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer, pancreatic cancer, and lymphoma.

To date, only one clinical trial assessing the use of cannabinoids as anti-cancer agents has been conducted. That trial reported that THC administration decreases recurrent glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) tumor growth in patients afflicted with the disease.

For more information, please contact Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director, at: paul@norml.org. Full text of the study, "Use of cannabinoid receptor agonists in cancer therapy as palliative and curative agents," appears in the journal Best Practice & Research: Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

indeed there is a correlation. I have read about a study which showed that tobacco-smokers developed significantly more lung cancers than tobacco-and-cannabis-smokers.

However, the conclusion, cannabis prevents cancer, is wrong. No substance does itself create cancer, this is a more complicated process. I'm a bit tired of explaining this a thousand times, and I know that almost nobody will understand it, so I just give a link for those who are interested:

http://www.newmedicine.ca (never mind that "germanic" stuff, this is stupid of course. The New Medicine is global. Unfortunately there are no other links that I can give; it's the only one that is acceptable)

My explanation of the results from these studies is that cannabis does calm the psyche and therefore conflicts won't get solved, and then certain symptoms do not occur. This is a bit complicated, impossible for me to explain in a few words. Also, I'm still learning about these things, maybe in a year or two I will be able to wrap it into a few sentences.

So what is the easy to grasp answer? Is smoking cannabis healthy? My answer is yes and no. No, it is of course not healthy to inhale anything regularily. This stuff sticks in the lungs and will certainly damage them, although not necessarily heavily. There are people who reach old age in good health smoking every day. So it is also yes, cannabis does not clearly lead to bad health. It is a good tranquilizer. But, what I find important to say, there is no direct correlation between smoking and cancer. Lung cancer is a special reaction for animals and humans to increase lung power, for the purpose of escaping. It has nothing to do with poisoning or smoke particles.

Phil, usually in these studies, the cannabinoids or THC is never smoked. It is usually in a pure oil form so there are no other contaminants. An application that I have seen videos on, is the processing of the buds down to an essential tarry oil. That is then eaten as it is much more concentrated than smoking marijuana. Different processing and administration methods for different problems.

highly recommended and maybe the video you're relating to, Easy: Running From The Cure - The Rick Simpson Story
Free download: http://www.phoenixtearsmovie.com/
"Support Phoenix Tears, a not for profit entity dedicated to Hemp medicines
and providing information about the use of natural Hemp oil, (not Hemp Seed oil) as an effective treatment for cancer and other serious illnesses."

Interesting to learn that the oil they get through the shown process is not psychoactive, although with the highest amount of THC ever measured by canadian law enforcers
