Cannabinoids Help Reduce Brain Cancer Glioma When Used With Radiation

GliomaIf you have brain cancer, especially a glioma that is being considered for radiation, this study “The combination of cannabidiol and delta-tetrahydrocannabinol enhances the anticancer effects of radiation in an orthotopic murine glioma model,” published in Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, 2014, should be of interest.  The study found significant reduction in cancer cells by using both cannabinoids and at higher doses for 4 hours before the radiation rather than just before radiation. You can read the study here…

If you do not have brain cancer, and especially if you are young (teenagers in particular) marijuana has been shown over and over to be harmful.  Since we know the brain continues to develop into our 20’s, I have no doubt that ongoing harm occurs to those who use marijuana frequently.  Studies show increased school failure, more mood disorders, increased suicide, and reduced motivation for the regular user of cannabinoids (THC, marijuana).
