Cannabis Can Prevent Cancer Caused By Cigarette Use, According To New Study

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, August, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-fights-cancerA new study published by the journal J-Stage, and funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, has found that cannabinoids - whether THC, CBD or CBDV – were effective at blocking a certain enzyme which is known to cause cancer, and is produced in large amount when cigarettes are consumed.
 
“These results suggest that the pentylresorcinol structure in CBD may have structurally important roles in direct CYP1A1 inhibition, although the whole structure of CBD is required for overall inhibition”, according to researchers.
 
CYP1A1 is an enzyme which isn’t dangerous at low-levels, but is produced in large quantities when someone smokes cigarettes; at large doses, the enzyme has been linked to cancer.
 
Researchers state that; “Accordingly, CBD and its related compounds, which are potent inhibitors of CYP1A1 activity, would be useful as a lead compound in anticancer chemotherapy.”

Three out of four doctors would prescribe marijuana, survey finds

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
doctors-would-prescribe-mjThree quarters of the world's doctors would prescribe marijuana under certain circumstances, according to a new survey by The New England Journal of Medicine.
 
The journal presented 1,446 physicians in 72 countries with the case study of Marilyn, a 68-year-old woman with metastatic breast cancer. Opposing expert viewpoints were presented to the doctors, including one that argued marijuana should be used only when other options fail, and another saying there was “little scientific basis” to endorse marijuana for therapy.
 
In the case of Marilyn, the cancer had spread to her lungs and thoracic and lumbar spine. She was undergoing chemotherapy and had substantial pain and nausea that other drugs (including opiates) hadn’t relieved.
 
Among the doctors surveyed worldwide, 76 percent said they would prescribe marijuana. The same percentage also applied for North America. But support for medical marijuana varied significantly by region, from 1 percent of the Utah doctors surveyed, to 96 percent of their counterparts in Pennsylvania.
