Gliomas make up 80% of all malignant brain tumors. High-grade gliomas are fast growing, aggressive, and difficult to treat. Of these, glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and the most fatal, with a reported survival rate of less than 10% in the first five years.
Interestingly, while GBM and gliomas have been highly resistant to traditional treatment, much of what is known about the demonstrated ability of cannabis to fight cancer comes from research conducted on GBM and glioma tumor cells.
Scientists hypothesize that because brain cells have the highest concentration of cannabinoid-binding receptors in the body, brain tumors also rich in these receptors may respond best to cannabinoids (chemical compounds such as THC and CBD as found in cannabis).
Brain Tumors and Cannabinoid Research with THC and CBD
At least a dozen pre-clinical studies and one pilot clinical trial have been performed on the anti-tumor effects of cannabinoids on gliomas alone. In fact, glioma cells accidentally played a key role in the discovery of THC’s tumor killing properties nearly two decades ago. In addition, patients with GBM took part in a pilot clinical trial to assess THC’s anti-tumor effect on humans that resulted in scientists finding significantly reduced tumor growth in each case.
And most recently, UK scientists have found that a combination of THC and CBD used with radiation treatment was most effective in dramatically shrinking high-grade glioma masses in mice.
See for yourself how THC selectively kills GBM cells while leaving normal cells alone by watching this time-lapse video taken from an actual human tumor.
Taking an Integrative Medicine Approach to Cancer with Cannabis Oil
As a medical cannabis provider, Constance Pure Botanical Extracts is distinguished for being oncologist-referred and followed since our beginning. Working with terminally ill patients and their doctors is our passion and our specialty.
CPBE was founded when two stage 4 brain cancer patients – considered terminal and out of options – came to Constance Finley for help. Under the guidance of Dr. Sean McAllister, a well-known cancer and cannabis researcher at California Pacific Medical Center, they took our pure cannabis extracts. They both went into remission.
Since then, we have worked with many oncologist-referred cancer patients, many of them terminal, and have seen many different types of cancer. Of the patients who have followed our 3-month protocol, typically as an adjunct therapy to their cancer treatment plan, we have witnessed about a 70% success rate across the board for all types of cancers. We consider success to be the cancer stopping, shrinking, or going into remission.
Cancer Success Stories with THC and CBD-rich Oils
Because of the unprecedented results that our cannabis oil has had on cancer patients, retrospective research is underway on those stage four cancer patients who successfully used our oil. Read what SF Weekly has written about our results with cancer patients.
Lastly, our patient members can tell you themselves the effect our oils have had on their cancer. Here is what a relative of one of our members had to say:
“After her first 3 months of chemo and oil, her tumors decreased up to 60%! Her oncologist was shocked. I am so happy with how the oil has changed her life. Not only do I truly believe it has been the reason her tumors are decreasing, but also, she is off her anxiety and sleeping meds!”
