Tumor growth “remarkably slower” and tumor size “significantly smaller”
- Stomach-cancer cells in mice died off when treated with CBD. Human cancer cells died in vitro (in the glass).
- Specific doses of CBD shrank and stopped the growth of tumors.
- Future stomach-cancer treatments may potentially include CBD.
For the first time
Medical researchers in Seoul, Korea have shown for the first time that CBD causes stomach-cancer cells to die, via a specific biological process, according to new experimental research published in Cell Death & Disease.
“We found that cell proliferation decreased following CBD treatment, but it had no effect in gastric normal cells,” they said in the published paper.
“We found that cell proliferation decreased following CBD treatment, but it had no effect in (the stomach’s) normal cells.”
The study also found that CBD shrank and slowed the growth of stomach cancer in mice.
“Tumor growth of the CBD-treated group was remarkably slower than that of the control group and the tumor size was significantly smaller…” the study said.
