Our visit with Dr Nephi Stella at the University of Washington on July 19th, 2017 was fascinating and we wanted to share that information with you! Here is a little bit about what we learned…

  • Application for use in cancer for both symptom management and potential cancer cell death.  Dr Stella’s lab learned that CBD does kill cancer cells, just not very efficiently.  They have created a purely synthetic version of CBD, that is approx. 300 times stronger.  There are excellent results in mouse models with this agent. Dr Stella anticipates a phase I human subjects trial opening in approximately 2 years.  This is a very exciting development in his life’s work  and passion of the past 17 years!
  • CBD kills cancer cells by disrupting the micro-tubules in the tumor cell, preventing cells from dividing.
  • Cannabidiol (CBD) is the medicinal, non-psychotropic component of the marijuana plant.
  • Delta-9 THC is the recreational, plant-based component
