Over the past several years, cancer researchers have been investigating the benefits of medical marijuana for a wide variety of cancers, including brain cancer and breast cancer. Now, researchers at Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania, say some of the compounds in the drug may help combat colon cancer, a recent press release from the university reports.

The study, which tested the effects of synthetic versions of the cannabinoid compounds found in marijuana on colon cancer cells, suggests that some of them may inhibit the growth of colon tumors. Researchers also tested two other compounds most commonly associated with cannabis—THC and CBD—but those were found to have little to no effect.

For their report, published in the journal Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, scientists tested how 370 different synthetic cannabinoid compounds affected seven different types of human colon cancer cells. Of these compounds, 10 were found to be effective at stopping cancer cell growth in its tracks. However, researchers remain unsure about how exactly many of these compounds worked to reduce the viability of these dangerous tumors.

very interesting how marijuana is not yet legal in all states, but we have all of this research about how it can help with so many diseases. Really makes you think about the governments priorities...
