New hope in treatment of breast cancer

19 Nov

A compound found in cannabis may stop breast cancer spreading throughout the body, US scientists believe.

The California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute team are hopeful that cannabidiol or CBD could be a non-toxic alternative to chemotherapy.

Researchers were careful to note that this does not mean that smoking marijuana will have the same effect and they are not recommending that smoking marijuana is good for breast cancer.

The authors stressed that they were not suggesting patients smoke marijuana. They added that it would be highly unlikely that effective concentrations of CBD could be reached by smoking cannabis.
