new study using a compound meant to mimic the medicinal effects of cannabinoids has found that activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors – something which cannabis does naturally - can prevent, and treat hormone-sensitive prostate cancer. The study was published this month by the U.S. National Institute of Health.

According to researchers of the study; “In the in vivo treatment, compound 4 [a synthetic cannabinoid] at 2 mg/kg, blocks the growth of LNCaP tumors and reduces the growth of PC-3 tumors generated in mice.”

They continue, stating that cannabinoids are a “good potential anticancer agent against hormone-sensitive prostate cancer.”

The study was conducted at the Instituto de Química Médica, CSIC, Calle Juan de la Cierva in Madrid, Spain. It will appear in print in the European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry.

    We should not jump at this! There are worrying indications that some forces are gearing up to establish another empire on the ruins of the collapsing tobacco empire.

    Of course, we should continue advocating for the medical use of substances with PROVEN efficacy and safety; i.e. we should encourage scientists to do more work on the medical use of cannabis.

    D-uh. I think by now the many research studies have proven the anti-cancer link. Abnet is correct on the ruins of the tobacco industry. Not only has cig smoking declined but the emergence of vapes replacing leaf cigarettes will further the decline.
