The topic of cannabis and what its main ingredient, THC, can do have long been debated in the scientific and political community, but it’s difficult to argue with video footage that displays its abilities.
Since 1974, studies have concluded that cannabis can combat cancer cells by injecting THC into the cells, which reportedly “slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives by as much as 36 percent.”
After the revelation of this particular study, which was published in a feature article in the Washington Post newspaper on August 18th, more studies began popping up that supported this conclusion.
