Summary of how Cannabinoids works

  • Triggering cell death, through a mechanism called apoptosis
  • Stopping cells from dividing
  • Preventing new blood vessels from growing into tumours
  • Reducing the chances of cancer cells spreading through the body,
    by stopping cells from moving or invading neighbouring tissue
  • Speeding up the cell's internal 'waste disposal machine'
    – a process known as autophagy – which can lead to cell death
