The main psychoactive constitute of the cannabis plant can completely kill cancer cells.
Dr. Sanchez, a molecular biologist from Compultense University in Madrid, Spain, has been studying the anti-tumor effects of THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis, for over a decade. She presented sound information that explains how exactly THC kills cancer cells without producing adverse effects on healthy cells.
Dr. Sanchez says THC does the dirty work of eliminating cancer cells by activating the body’s own cannabinoid receptors, creating endocannabinoids. What’s more, cannabis can do this without any psychoactive effects.
