34 Medical Studies Proving Cannabis Cures Cancer

There’s still a lot of confusion across the nation about whether or not marijuana is effective for cancer patients. Odds are you’ve heard something about it but weren’t sure whether the information was reliable or definitive. So, in order to help clear things up, here is a list of 34 studies showing that marijuana cures cancer, categorized by the type of cancers being cured in each study. As you sort through the articles, note that the consistent theme between them is that cannabis shrinks tumors and selectively targets cancer cells. As bills and voter initiatives to legalize medical marijuana spread from state to state, remember that we’re not just talking about mitigating the side effects of chemo (though this is another viable use), we’re talking about curing the cancer itself as well as preventing its spread. I’ve taken the liberty of only including articles from credible scientific journals, removing any biased or otherwise improperly cited studies. Enjoy!

    • You're an idiot says:

      If you did your research before making OBSURD accusations, you would learn that in the history of mankind, marijuana has killed a total of ZERO people. That’s right! ZERO! Your post just makes you sound completely ignorant and idiotic. In other words you’re a DUMBASS

  5. For clarity, cannabis refers to the genus of plants that include marijuana. What is mostly being used in these studies is an extract of cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol. “Cure” in the true sense of the word is defined by modern medicine as 5-year survival in humans. We only see human use in the first cited brain tumor safety study where there was 24-week survival. The rest are test tube or animal studies for the most part. We cannot fault the author of this article for the lack of human studies as that lies at the feed of the research community and the National Cancer Institute. The reason cannabinoids are so promising is that the current therapies (chemo and radiation) produced such terrible side effects, are not selective for cancer cells (harm healthy cells) and are marginally effective at extending survival time in humans. Cannabinoids exhibit many anti-cancer activities, inhibiting not only the growth but the spread (metastasis) of cancer, which is the mortal form of the disease, something that conventional cancer treatment does not address. Cannabinoids also reduce pain, an extra benefit.

  7. Hemp oil and the material for making it can be found on the website of Mediccanna (www.mediccanna.com)

  8. Michael murray says:

    So apart from the numbers that are wrong, the papers refer to cannabiniods or cannabis extracts and the effects are all on cell lines or animal studies and the only human study everyone died……I’m not entirely sure as to how this adds up to ” cannabis cures cancer” …..oh hang on its completely misleading. As for cannabis science it is a joke website clearly looking for investment as they state MRSA is a virus and then don’t know what it stands for.
    Extracts of cannabis may have therapeutic potential in the future. However frankly this is simply lies to say cannabis cures cancer.

    • Dave K, Phoenix, AZ says:

      Look at the research that has taken place outside the US. NIDA will only allow the use of marijuana to study harms associated with marijuana and not benefits.

    • Tommy Chong says:

      I partly agree. We should say “Cannabis kills cancer” until we have enough evidence in form of clinical human studies. Problem is that science, like the rest of society, is completely corrupted – it actually isn’t science – I mean, look at the myriad of studies done in the last 70 years to prove the harm of MJ, all full of lies.

      Anyway you cannot ignore hundreds of testimonials from people who were given up on by the med. establishment and were able to cure their cancer with cannabis oil.

      Also one should not think G.W. Pharmaceuticals is doing THIS just for fun:

  9. DrSteven says:

    CBD, cannabidiol, is in both marijuana and hemp (also cannabis).

    Time to take marijuana away from the cartels and regulate this substance! Youth use goes down when prohibition is lifted and taxes can help this economy.

    How to invest in this economy or get the benefits of cannabis no matter where you live?

    Follow this:

    Hemp is legal to possess in ALL 50 states.

    Legal states for all cannabis (legal thc containing cannabis) are noticing that half of all sales are for edibles and extracts!

    The premier company in the legal state of Colorado is Dixie Botanicals and DIxie Elixers, two companies owned by MJNA.

    MJNA is the alpha source of CBD from legal hemp through their other company RSHO (Phytosphere)!

    MJNA, a stock traded on the stock market is about to rocket up!

    As well for those that want CBD they can order it from ANY state legally from MJNA (phytosphere) or from Dixie Botanicals!

    Invest in the “Green Rush”! MJNA is the ALPHA company to invest in! Investing in MJNA is investing in America! Help the sick and take cannabis away from the overseas cartels by investing in MJNA

  10. Carlos says:

    Misleading article at best. While cannabis may hold a lot of promises, none of these articles proves cannabis cures anything… Many of these studies refer to mouse or rat models some to in vitro models. In other cases it refers to upregulation, in others to chemoprevention… Either the author is not a scientist, he doesn’t understand science, or is misleading purposefully. Disappointing.

    • mb says:

      maybe you should tell that to those who managed to get cured of cancer afyer trying cannabis oil with high concentration of thc and cbd. after doctor told them they are done for….
      chenos is so much more dangerous and it has a low % effectiveness as well as increseas chances of getting other types of cancer.. I have seen first hand how cheno has ruined peoples life, it damaged their lungs so they couldn’t do much anymore and needed to have oxygen on all the time. cannabis side effects is so much less that its really comes down to economy and how big pharmas intrest in keeping their profits sky high…

  11. Dan says:

    …and in other views, morphine helps patients during traumatic medical emergency situations.
    It’s all a matter of dosage. (Think about that for a bit)

  12. Monica Floria says:

I want the entire would to know that Cannabis Oil is a wonder and it has come to stay

  13. guy says:

    None of these studies prove that cannabis cures cancer.

    The anti-tumour activity of cannabinoids is well known. Suggesting that “big pharma” is suppressing this research is gibberish. Pharmaceutical companies already have patents relating to the use of THC and other cannabinoids as anti-proliferative drugs. Drug companies are already patenting THC and other cannabinoids in order to use them as anti-cancer drugs.

    However, inhibiting tumour growth is not the same thing as a cure for cancer, by a long shot. PLENTY of drugs already inhibit tumour growth.

    • Steven P says:

      Why would anyone take a pharmaceutical drug, as you suggest, rather than ingesting a natural compounds such as pot that “cures” cancer.

      Apoptosis is cell death, meaning the CB2 cannabinoids kill (cure) cancers.

      I’m sure you’re not a doctor, and sure many are glad you’re not, although you sound like one pushing synthetic drugs.

  14. Mickay says:

    if this is true – I would have hated to see just how bad my brother in law’s multiple cancers would have been if he wasn’t on weed so often, for so many years!

    Not against marijuana but cure? Come on… it’s treat…

  16. Scott says:

    Has anyone actually taken the time to read the articles referenced by the author? I did. Not one of the studies state that cannabais cures cancer. Most of the studies are in vitro and there are some in vivo using mice. The studies are very exciting and I for one would love to see real proof that cannabais is the cure for this multifaceted and dreadful disease. However, the proof is not yet available. More studies are necessary. I am all for legalization with the proper regulation and I think that people should be able to use it medically if they so desire. But is it a cure? That remains to be seen.

  17. leeski says:

    Well done Scott I agree. I wish people who wrote these articles would use more appropriate language. Not cure, but shows some potential. Too much misleading going on in this world.
