Cannabis Studies on Cancer Cells

June 7, 2018 0 By Creative Choice

A major hurdle preventing human research on cannabis is that the United States government controversially considers it a Schedule 1 drug under the Controlled Substance Act, meaning that the official position is that it has “no currently accepted medical use,” which limits research into its possible medical value.

Reviews of scientific studies regularly updated by scientists at the NIH do not have any bearing on the United States Government’s official view toward cannabis and is wholly independent of any regulatory bodies or legal or political decision-making groups.

With that being said, you can draw your own conclusions. Here I am providing links to these studies and I have grouped them by type.
