However, in those 10 years Professor Manuel Guzman and his team's ideas have evolved from his finding on that day and have proved that in animal models cannabis has potent anti cancer properties that result in the death of highly aggressive tumour cells of many cancers.
A toxicology study of THC conducted in the 1990s found that rats exposed to large amounts of THC lived longer and had fewer instances of tumors. (The study was not released to the public until 1997, when it was discovered by AIDS activists.) Spanish researcher Manuel Guzman's findings in 2000 were similar: Tumors exposed to compounds in marijuana experienced "negative cell growth" - the cancers shrunk and died, with no adverse side effects to the patient.
Professor Manuel Guzman, from Complutense University inMadrid, who led the research, said: "In both patients, VEGF levels in tumour extracts were lower after cannabinoid inoculation."Writing in the journal Cancer Research, Guzman's team said
