Cannabis oil helped cure my cancer

He said: ‘Mechanistically, both THC and cannabinoids work by switching on cell killing processes that are found in cancer cells.

‘The idea is that by switching these on, cell death can be engaged leading to reductions in tumours.

‘Similarly, actions through these signalling cascades could actually make the cancer cells more sensitive to other forms of therapy – I suppose cannabinoids and THC could act by laying the foundations for other therapies to work more effectively.’

Dr Kat Arney, science communications manager at Cancer Research UK, said:

‘We know that cannabinoids can have a range of different effects on cancer cells grown in the lab and animal tumors.

‘But at the moment there isn’t good evidence from clinical trials to prove that they can safely and effectively treat cancer in patients.

‘Despite this, we are aware that some cancer patients do choose to treat themselves with cannabis extracts.

‘These stories can help researchers build a picture of whether these treatments are helping or not, although this is weak evidence compared to properly-run clinical trials.

‘Cancer Research UK is supporting clinical trials for treating cancer with cannabis extract and a synthetic cannabinoid in order to gather solid data on how best these drugs can be used to benefit people with cancer.’
