Breast Cancer And Cannabinoids
It is forecasted that in the near future 12% of the world’s women will develop breast cancer. Although mortality from this disease is declining, it remains the second most common cause of death in the female population, and no new treatment exists to date. Breast cancer by its mechanism is a very heterogeneous disease and in the long run, standard treatment can lead to resistance (Blasco-Benito S et al., 2018). On the other hand, it has been determined that cannabinoids modulate the hormone-dependent breast cancer cells. Expression of CB1 and CB2 receptors was indeed detected in breast cancer tissue. Cannabinoids were involved in the apoptosis (natural death) of tumor cells, and in the inhibition of bone pain caused by breast cancer as well as by the loss of bone mass. The Δ9-THC component inhibited the proliferation of cancer cells / tumors. Various experiments with animals also revealed that a natural preparation derived from the Cannabis sativa plant with all its active components was more effective in treating breast cancer than purified Δ9-THC.
