Pancreatic cancer is one of the toughest to treat forms of fatal disease, but scientists have revealed that flavonoids which are the compounds present in the majority of plants that give them their vibrant green leafy colors which could hold an answer to this issue.
Medical marijuana can treat many of the issues related to pancreatic cancer and its probable treatments.
It can complement, or sometimes substitute, the treatments that are normally used.
The components in marijuana also known as cannabinoids could kill off and combat pancreatic cancer cells.
Pancreatic adenocarcinomas are some of the most deadly forms of cancer. So, scientists investigated how cannabinoids could have an effect on it.
Building off research presenting pancreatic cancer cells have more cannabinoid receptors than healthy pancreatic tissue, they applied THC to pancreatic cancer cells to determine that the cancerous cells died off, but the benign cells took no damage.
Both isolated cells and pancreatic cancer in living individuals reacted this way and proved to be beneficial.
