Dr. Christina Sanchez, a molecular biologist at Compultense University in Madrid, Spain explains how THC kills cancer cells. Cristina Sánchez (Madrid, Spain, 1971) graduated in Biology at Madrid Complutense University in 1994. Once graduated, she joined Dr. Manuel Guzmán’’s laboratory, where she studied the effect of cannabinoids on lipid and carbohydrate intermediate metabolism first and on cancer cell proliferation later. She obtained her PhD with Honors in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in 2000. During her postdoc at Dr. Piomelli’’s laboratory (University of California Irvine, 2000-2003) she studied the involvement of another group of bioactive lipids (lysophosphatidic acid and related compounds) on pain initiation. In 2004, Cristina returned to Spain and she started coordinating a new line of research within Dr. Guzmán’’s laboratory. The goal of her research is to understand and exploit cannabinoids as potential antitumoral agents in breast cancer. More recently, she has also focused her attention on new cannabinoid receptors and their possible involvement in cannabinoid antitumoral action in breast cancer and other type of tumors.

    If only this plant is legal here in my country then there might be a lot of people survive cancer. But here in our country once you used cannabis, you’d die haha. Anti drug law is real.

    I consider this as a great development in the medical field. This is not the first time that I am hearing about scientist carrying out a research on the cure of cancer using cannabis, but i am not just sure of how effective it has been. I wish the government would support more research works like this. Breast cancer is something serious that kills most women if not detected early.

    This is a great discovery, many people will help fight cancer because of this. As of now, millions of people are fighting Cancer, and alot of research has been made just find the cure. Because of this diacovery, alot of people will change their lives and to live a normal life. I hope the government will help and support the project so that many lives will saved.

    If this is true then there should be some initiatives by the government to legalize drugs as cancer killing agent. The only thing that were afraid of is the security and for the abuse if ever this is legalized
