Growth of malignant melanoma cells have been linked to anandamide since 2013.

A connection between Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and cannabinoid receptors was discovered in 2013.

Breast cancer cells were found to contain cannabinoid receptors in 2006.

In stage IV colorectal cancer, the level of cannabinoid receptors was found to be a factor in a bad prognosis following surgery.

In pancreatic tumors, higher volumes of cannabinoid receptors were shown in patients with shorter survival time (median 6 months)
