Comparison of the Anti-Tumor Efficacy of A Whole-Plant Extract Vs. Pure THC in Preclinical Models of HER2-Positive Breast Cancer

Time: 1:30 pm
day: Day Two


• Whole-plant extracts are more effective antitumor tools than pure compounds

• The plant contains hundreds of compounds with potential therapeutic effects

• Explore the cannabinoids that inhibit proliferation of cancer cells in vitro (e.g. THCA, CBDA, etc.) and other non-cannabinoid compounds that activate cannabinoid receptors (e.g. beta-caryophyllene)

• Discuss why most of the constituents of cannabis have not been studied in cancer, even though there is already clinical evidence for other ailments supporting this idea (e.g. effect of marinol vs whole-plant extracts)
