Ever wondered about the connection between medical cannabis and cancer?
About two years ago, Dr. Meiri and his team at the Cancer Research lab at the Technion in Israel began to ask that multi-billion dollar question: “Are they any anti-cancer effects of cannabis?”
Dr. Meiri’s laboratory team, affectionately known as “Dedi’s Lab” have successfully treated cancer cells in vitro with cannabis causing apoptosis (cell suicide/death). These results have been shown in animal and in vitro tests for various cancer types including pancreas, brain and breast cancers. Their studies on cannabinoids, anti-tumor and antimetastatic actions are groundbreaking and lay the foundation for more study and possibly treatment options.
His work has influenced our global understanding of the mechanisms of cannabis as it relates to cancer, and the work of his lab in general is a solid block that is now the foundation for the medicalization of cannabis.
We are very honored to share this CannaTech 2017 presentation from Dr. David “Dedi” Meiri Grab a pen a paper and get yourself comfortable, because this is top-shelf presentation.
