Forbes: "CBD From Marijuana Plus Chemotherapy Tripled Cancer Survival Rates In Mice"
Updated: Nov 8, 2018
For those of you unfamiliar with what Forbes is, it focuses on "news and informatin about business, investing, technology, entrepreneurship, leadership and affluent lifestyles." (1) In business over 100 years and with over 400 employees worldwide (1), Forbes has become a respected, trusted and reliable source for information spanning across a wide variety of topics.
Recently, Forbes published an article titled "Study: CBD From Marijuana Plus Chemotherapy Tripled Cancer Survival Rates In Mice" that talked about, well, just that. We've obviously been excited about CBD for a long time, but hearing breakthrough news from accredited sources like this never gets any less incredible:
"Mice with pancreatic cancer treated with a combination of cannabidiol (CBD) and chemotherapy survived nearly three times longer than those treated with chemotherapy alone, according to a new study that spotlights the potential for human treatment." (2)
Research and science will undoubtedly be key in getting the general public on board with using CBD in combination with chemotherapy, and we're thrilled to see these steps.
The studies that Forbes pulled from highlighed exactly the type of thing that gets us most excited about our jobs in the first place: helping people:
"Moreover our data indicate that combination of CBD and GEM, both currently approved for medical use, might be tested in clinical trials as a novel promising treatment to improve PDAC patients’ outcome." (4)
The article also touches upon the fact that CBD is already approved for use in United Kingdom clinics, a great sign for human progress regarding further study and use. It also pointed out that "CBD derived from marijuana is still considered an illegal (Schedule 1) substance under federal law," (3) a drastic difference from other countries who are quickly recognizing and harnessing the uses and benefits of CBD, which have "already been shown to improve side effects of chemotherapy like nausea and vomiting." (4)
It's pretty incredible to look at how federal law has hindered the progression of research and use of this plant, and we are just as excited as you to see how the overwhelming support of hemp and CBD products are increases. While we can't be sure as to when major federal changes are going to be made in entirety, we can be sure that "the more we learn about the potential of these compounds, the more it seems clear that decades of research being blocked by federal law deprived us of medical advances that are only now starting to surface." (4) We say: Let 'em surface.
