Study demonstrates potential in CBD brain cancer treatment

CBD could be an effective treatment for one of the most aggressive forms of brain cancer, a recent study has revealed.

Researchers at Colorado State University tested the effect of CBD isolate and extract on human and canine glioblastoma cells.

In the experiments, CBD slowed the growth of cancer cells and proved toxic to both cell groups.

The isolate and full-spectrum extract were equally effective.

Chase Gross of the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine/Master of Science programme at Colorado State University, said:

“CBD has been zealously studied in cells for its anticancer properties over the last decade. 

“Our study helps complete the in vitro puzzle, allowing us to move forward in studying CBD’s effects on glioblastoma in a clinical setting using live animal models. 

“This could lead to new treatments that would help both people and dogs that have this very serious cancer.”

The team of researchers now plan to treat animal subjects with CBD.

Medical cannabis businesses were deemed ‘essential’ by governor Larry Hogan.

Mana patient Yony Cruz said:

“The drive-through is literally the perfect solution to everything.

“They’re keeping the workers safe, they’re keeping everything on the inside more sanitary because there’s less volume of people inside, and everyone is getting their medicine.”
