An article written up in Forbes magazine by David Disalvo talks about mice with pancreatic cancer being treated by CBD. The mice have been able to live three times longer which is opening the door for potential human trials. Leading the way into more credible research on the cannabis plant and all it’s possibilities.
“Cannabidiol is already approved for use in clinics [in the UK], which means we can quickly go on to test this in human clinical trials,” said lead researcher Marco Falasca from Queen Mary University of London.
Pancreatic cancer once diagnosed usually attacks the person quietly and is one of the most deadliest types of cancers out there. Once diagnosed it’s usually to late, leaving the person minimal time left on this earth.
With trials happening on mice and the results being positive it is urgent to move forward with more in depth research of the cannabis sativa plant, allowing human clinical trials.
It’s sad that it has taken this long to start truly discussing the benefits of cannabis. From locking people up physically in our prisons taking away any freedom they may had, to denying someone an alternative medicine to help them live comfortably. It’s time to progress and move swiftly with proper research.
