Cannabis kills cancer cells. This idea has been circulating in the masses for long, however, it has been proved now. The United States officials have finally revealed that Marijuana can be used to kill cancer cells. But, the drug has been banned due to its addictive use.
Amy Willis, a journalist of Metro, have stated that the US Government has added a page on its site describing that cannabis and cannabinoids can be used to cure cancer.
She stated: “The, National Cancer Institute, part of the US Department of Health, now advises that ‘cannabinoids may be useful in treating the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment’ by smoking, eating it in baked products, drinking herbal teas or even spraying it under the tongue.”
The official site has listed that there are vast medicinal uses of Marijuana including anti-inflammatory activity, pain relief, anti-anxiety, stress relief, anti-tumor, antiviral activity, relieving muscle spasms, and much more.
The US Government has advocated the ban on marijuana or cannabis for quite a long time. However, this new research paves a way for the medicinal benefit of all. If used with care, this drug has lots of healing properties and a great prospect for future.
