Delta 8-THC and Tumors: Can it Help?

by Nathan Mackowiak on May 27, 2021

If you’re a regular on our blog, you know that recently we have been exploring the many potential benefits of Delta 8-THC. Recently, we published a blog about Delta 8-THC and its potential ability to provide relief to patients who are going through chemotherapy treatments. 

Medical research has found that Delta 8-THC can potentially reduce nausea and vomiting in people undergoing chemotherapy. This is similar to Delta 9-THC, marijuana. However, many people, especially children, don’t have access to legal medical marijuana, or they are not given this as a treatment option by their doctor. 

Even more interesting than the potential nausea relief that Delta 8-THC can provide is the potential it has for treating tumors. That’s right! There is medical research that indicates that Delta 8-THC could effectively shrink the size of tumors. Let’s dive a little deeper into the research that was done, and see what scientists discovered. 

Delta 8-THC and Tumor Reduction

While Delta 8-THC is just starting to gain attention from recreational users in the United States, it has been on the minds of researchers for nearly 50 years. In fact, the major study that we will be looking at in this blog post was conducted back in 1975. Research into Delta 8-THC and its potential benefits is not new.

The study was conducted on lab rats. In it, rats were implanted with various types of tumors. Once implantation was complete, rats were given either Delta 9-THC, Delta 8-THC, or a placebo orally. What scientists discovered was incredible.

In this study they found that after 20 days of oral Delta 8-THC consumption, the tumors in the rats shrunk or were completely inhibited from further growth. Delta 9-THC also had a similar effect on the tumors in the rats as well. This is an incredible discovery! 

We are still so far from finding reliable, safe cancer treatments for humans, but this is one study that can give us a lot of hope. Delta 8-THC is a lot less invasive and damaging to the body than chemotherapy, and if it can help shrink tumors, it could lead to a better cancer treatment in the future. 

Research into the human body and how tumors inside of people respond to Delta 8-THC has yet to really take place on a large clinical level. For now, there are no treatments for cancer involving Delta 8-THC, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be some in the future. 

As Delta 8 becomes more popular with users, there will be more studies into the potential therapeutic applications it could have.
