Looking for some research links?
The Goddess Delivers won’t ever offer you medical advice, but we will point you in the direction of accredited professionals and interesting studies that can help identify helpful side effects from the use of cannabis.
Here are some of those studies!
Stay tuned for a list of doctors.
1. This study indicates that Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids can inhibit tumor growth in two out of the nine patients. This study was done by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in Madrid. Published in the British Journal of Cancer. Cannabis was delivered to patients was targeted without psychoactive effects. http://www.nature.com/bjc/journal/v95/n2/abs/6603236a.html
2. The Journal of Neuroscience published this study indicating that THC may reduces neuronal injury in rats and that cannabinoids protect the brain against neurodegeneration. http://www.jneurosci.org/content/21/17/6475.abstract
3. This one argues that the CBD cannabinoid (cannabidiol) can cause a conclusive drop in the viability of brain tumor cell lines. Published in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics it concludes that CBDs produce antitumor activity. http://jpet.aspetjournals.org/content/308/3/838.abstract
4. The California Pacific Medical Centre published this study in the US library of Medicine to support that CBD can inhibits human breast cancer cell proliferation as well as significantly reducing tumor mass. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20859676
5. Study published in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics shows that THC as well as CBD can reduces breast cancer cell growth. http://jpet.aspetjournals.org/content/early/2006/05/25/jpet.106.105247
6. The Journal of Molecular Cancer published a study arguing that THC can reduce tumor growth and numbers and that cannabanoids may impair tumor angiogenesis, induce cancer cell apoptosis, and inhibit cancer cell proliferation. http://www.molecular-cancer.com/content/9/1/196
7. This study indicates that cannabinoids may inhibit human breast cancer cell proliferation. It was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) http://www.pnas.org/content/95/14/8375.full.pdf+html
8. The Harvard Medical Experimental Medicine Department suggests that THC inhibits epithelial growth factor induced lung cancer cell migration, and should be further studied to control the growth and metastasis of lung cancers. It was published in the Journal Oncogene. http://www.nature.com/onc/journal/v27/n3/abs/1210641a.html
9. Cannabinoids can decrease cancer cell invasiveness, at least that is what the Institute of Toxicology and Pharmacology from the Department of General Surgery in Germany published in the US National Library of Medicine. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22198381?dopt=Abstract
10. Harvard Medical School also found that cannabinoids might be a possible treatment to combat lung cancer cells. The study was published by the US National Library of Medicine. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21097714?dopt=Abstract
11. The US National Library of Medicine put out a study that shows a possible decrease in prostatic cancer cells by use of cannabinoid receptors. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12746841?dopt=Abstract
12. They also found that cannabis might be an effective treatment for prostate cancer. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3339795/?tool=pubmed
13. Last but not least they published that cannabinoid receptor activation can induce prostate carcinoma cell apoptosis which means it might inhibits cancer cells. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22594963
14. The Swedish Cancer Society funded a study that indicates that cannabinoids can inhibit growth and induce apoptosis in matle cell lymphoma. They published the study in the journal Molecular Pharmacology. http://molpharm.aspetjournals.org/content/70/5/1612.abstract
15. The International Journal of Cancer argues that cannabinoids can have antiproliferative and pro apoptotic effects on various cancers and mantle cell lymphoma. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ijc.23584/abstract
16. Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology from Virginia Commonwealth University did a study that shows that cannabinoids can induce apoptosis in leukemia cells. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16908594
17. The US National Library of Medicine supports the idea that cannabinoids can inhibit cellular respiration and are toxic to malignant oral tumors. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20516734
18. The US National Library of Medicine shows that THC reduces the growth and viability of human HCC cell lines (hepatocellular liver carcinoma cell line). http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21475304
19. The American Journal of Cancer suggests that cannabinoid administration can induce apoptosis, reduces growth of tumor cells, inhibits the spreading of pancreatic tumor cells. http://cancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/66/13/6748.abstract
