It is only in the 1990’s that the Endocannabinoid system was discovered within the human body. It exists just like an immune system or central nervous system exists in our body.
The endocannabinoid system is an intercellular communication system — a control system involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes. with an important role in maintaining our body’s homeostasis (equilibrium).

Pre-clinical studies have shown that cannabinoids may stop cancer cells from dividing and invading normal tissue, and they may block the blood supply to tumors. Some studies also indicate that cannabinoids may enhance the body’s immune response against the growth and spread of tumors.
On the other hand, the palliative effect of cannabinoids on many cancer associated symptoms is probably a fact established by the scientific community.

There are over ten thousand scientific publications available online that show the anti-cancer properties of cannabis in pre-clinical tests. Many of these conclude that medical cannabis offers palliative care benefits. But an overwhelming amount of research also indicates that cannabinoids from cannabis can do so much more.
