Why Do People Think Cannabis Cures Cancer? - Hail Mary Jane ®

Wednesday, Oct 25, 2017

Over 2,500 years ago, a 25-year-old Siberian woman died of breast cancer. Millenia later, her tattooed remains were found preserved in ice. Surprisingly, remnants of a familiar medicine were preserved with her: cannabis.

Yep, that’s right. Cannabis was used to ease symptoms of cancer more than two millennia ago. Fast forward to present day. Many cancer patients gravitate toward cannabis for relief from nausea, pain, and sleeplessness.

Yet, why do so many people think that cannabis cures cancer? Can the herb do more than simply ease symptoms and make life more manageable? Here’s the simple answer.

Believe it or not, there is real scientific evidence that cannabis kills cancer cells. However, research is limited to laboratory experiments and rodent models. That means that it is still unclear whether or not cannabis does cure cancer.

To be more accurate, it is not clear whether or not cannabis compounds can kill cancer cells in the human body. It’s also not clear when cannabis medicines effectively kill cancer cells and under what circumstances and doses they are most effective.
