1974: a research study at the University of Virginia using cannabinoids from cannabis showed they can prevent the growth of malignant cancer cells.
During a the study researchers used cancer cells that were resistant to chemotherapy, and dosed the cells with a synthetic form of delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the primary compounds found in cannabis.
Researchers noted a drastic reduction in the survival rate of the cells that were exposed to the synthetic THC. When conducting the study researchers found that larger doses of THC led to higher rates of cancer cell death.
