*** Cannabinoids and tumor inhibition in the news again this week!:
On this video filmed in 2006, Dr. Robert Melamede, Professor of Biology at the University of Colorado, explains how the body’s Endo-Cannabinoid system (and plant based Cannabinoids as suppliment) kills cancer cells and inhibits tumor growth.
Refering to 1974 U.S.government-sponsored study when THC was found to slow growth of cancer cells
http://projectcensored.org/publicatio… and to recent research in Spain finding that THC stopped brain tumors in rats and protected surrounding nerve tissue, demonstrating neuroprotectant aspect of Cannabinoids.
PDF of Dr. Guzman’s research:
Refering to “Homeostatic Regulation” of several body systems by Cannabinoids, Dr. Melamede concludes that Cannabis is indeed a “Miracle Drug”, also recommending hemp oil as excellent source of EFAs the body needs to fight disease.
