THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol and is found in the hemp plant. It belongs to the group of cannabinoids.
THC binds to specific structures and causes happiness, relaxation, and pain relief.
Studies have shown that cannabinoids bind to specific receptors and can have a wide range of effects on cancer.
Cannabinoids can inhibit cancer growth by activating apoptosis. The latter leads to the self-destruction of the cancer cell.
The distribution of cancer cells into distant parts of the body and organs is known as metastasis. It is very dangerous and usually complicates cancer therapy.
Cannabinoids can prevent cancer cells from growing into healthy tissue and also prevent metastasis.
Cannabinoids are particularly effective in cancer cells that have the corresponding cannabinoid receptors on their surface. These are found primarily in breast cancer, prostate cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, leukemia, pancreatic cancer, and melanoma.
Cannabinoids were previously used to treat nausea, pain, and appetite stimulants in advanced cancer cases.
Today studies show us that they also have positive effects against cancer cells.
However, I cannot recommend their use. The oral substances used by the patients are not pharmacologically controlled. The exact ingredients and their amounts are not known.
I do not recommend smoking hashish or marijuana, since it is not known how much cannabinoids are absorbed into the bloodstream at all. Besides, hashish and marijuana are often mixed with tobacco, which is carcinogenic and weakens the immune system.
