Lung Cancer And Cannabinoids
Pharmacological mechanisms and clinical effects have also been investigated in separate forms of cancer. Cannabinoids have been shown to have anti-invasive and antimetastatic effects in lung cancer cells and in metastatic lung cancer cells taken from cancer patients (Haustein M et al., 2014). Cannabinoids were shown to activate processes that bind lymphokine-activating cells to specific cells (ICAM-1) on the surface of lung cancer cells, causing cytotoxicity and death of these cancer cells. In the study on the effects of CBD on healthy lung tissues (eg, vascular endothelial cells), cytotoxic effects were shown to to have a significantly weaker cytotoxic effect; thus, it can reasonably be said that CBD action is specific to lung cancer cells.
