The new research by specialists at St George’s, University of London, studied the treatment of brain cancer tumors in the laboratory and discovered that the most effective treatment was to combine active chemical components of the cannabis plant with radiation.
Those treated with both irradiation and the cannabinoids saw the most beneficial results and a drastic reduction in size. In some cases, the tumors effectively disappeared in the animals. This augurs well for further research in humans in the future. At the moment this is a mostly fatal disease with about a 10% survival rate.
