USA — A compound found in cannabis may stop breast cancer spreading throughout the body, US scientists believe.

The California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute team are hopeful that cannabidiol or CBD could be a non-toxic alternative to chemotherapy.

Unlike cannabis, CBD does not have any psychoactive properties so its use would not violate laws, Molecular Cancer Therapeutics reports.

The authors stressed that they were not suggesting patients smoke marijuana

They added that it would be highly unlikely that effective concentrations of CBD could be reached by smoking cannabis.

CBD works by blocking the activity of a gene called Id-1 which is believed to be responsible for the aggressive spread of cancer cells away from the original tumour site – a process called metastasis.

Past work has shown CBD can block aggressive human brain cancers.

The latest work found CBD appeared to have a similar effect on breast cancer cells in the lab.

Future Hope

Lead researcher Dr Sean McAllister said: “Right now we have a limited range of options in treating aggressive forms of cancer.

“Those treatments, such as chemotherapy, can be effective but they can also be extremely toxic and difficult for patients.

“This compound offers the hope of a non-toxic therapy that could achieve the same results without any of the painful side effects.”

Dr Joanna Owens of Cancer Research UK said: “This research is at a very early stage.

“The findings will need to be followed up with clinical trials in humans to see if the CBD is safe, and whether the beneficial effects can be replicated.

“Several cancer drugs based on plant chemicals are already used widely, such as vincristine – which is derived from a type of flower called Madagascar Periwinkle and is used to treat breast and lung cancer.  It will be interesting to see whether CBD will join them.”

Maria Leadbeater of Breast Cancer Care said: “Many people experience side-effects while having chemotherapy, such as nausea and an increased risk of infection, which can take both a physical and emotional toll.

“Any drug that has fewer side-effects will, of course, be of great interest.”

But she added: “It is clear that much more research needs to be carried out.”

Once again Willits Mayor Bruce Burton (who has been involved in numerous local scandals) is attempting an Unconstitutional Ban and Assault on Willits Medical Cannabis Patients which could include Misdemeanor Criminal Charges against Medical Marijuana Patients as well as Unconstitutional Intrusions into residents properties and homes in the latest “Reefer Madness Assault” on Willits Medical Cannabis Patients. Instead of providing a legal framework which benefits Willits sick Medical Dependent Cannabis Patients, Mayor Bruce Burton is again attacking and promoting a “Complete Cannabis Ban” which would criminalize Willits Medical Cannabis Patients. Please stand against TYRANNY and Stand Up for Willits Citizens Rights to Use, Store, Cultivate Medical Cannabis. Currently all Medical Cannabis Patients must drive to Ukiah, Hopland or Fort Bragg to obtain their doctor prescribed Medical Cannabis, Willits is the ONLY Major Town in Mendocino County banning dispensaries which would provide a safe place for patients to buy their medicine. Elderly, handicapped and sick patients are currently forced to drive 20-45 minutes to obtain medicine and relief for their ailments at a time our State and County is allowing Commercial Medical Marijuana Cultivation; the current California laws in  place already do enough to protect our States Citizens and provide for our medical cannabis patients.

Please Stand with your Neighbors and Community and Oppose ANY Medical Marijuana Ban in the City of Willits. Time to take our City back from the Wealthy interests of the Conservative and Wealthy 1% like Mayor Bruce Burton!
