37 cannabis and cancer studies

Many patients ask us whether cannabis can reverse tumor growth. Below is a list of 37 studies from reputable, peer-reviewed journals showing how cannabis works to kill cancer cells in laboratory studies using animals, and not people. Your oncologist may be interested in these studies, but know that they do not prove cannabis cures cancer in humans. Clinical studies are needed.
