The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cautions consumers about irresponsible claims floated by some companies that promote their marijuana-based products as “cancer treatments.”
Greenroads Health, Natural Alchemist, That’s Natural! Marketing and Consulting, and Stanley Brothers Social Enterprises LLC distributed 25 marijuana-related goods that claimed to prevent, treat, diagnose, and “cure” cancer. No medical or scientific evidence supported these assertions. These products were sold on product websites, internet retailers, and social media.
Marijuana Treatments for Cancer Patients: Is there danger?
None of these items violated regulated or forbidden drug laws since they include an extract of the hemp plant called Cannabidiol (CBD), which not approved by the government for any actual drug product. CBD relieves pain and relaxes. The corporations violate the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act by selling unapproved products with unsupported medicinal claims.
Unfounded therapeutic claims expose patients to possible injury since they may forgo effective, recognized, and proved life-saving medication in favor of dubious items. Some absurd claims included “combats tumor and cancer cells” and “makes cancer cells commit ‘suicide’ without destroying other cells.” Deceptive marketing practices jeopardize Americans’ health, the FDA said.
The government wants to remove marijuana-based cancer therapies from the market to protect the health of Americans, especially those receiving treatment.
Can marijuana treat cancer patients?
There is no scientific evidence to suggest the efficacy of a marijuana-based cancer treatment. The FDA welcomes any research or product studies that could lead to such a drug. Some people use CBD and marijuana illegally to ease cancer symptoms. It also helps ease cancer therapy side effects.
Medical research wants definitive evidence of marijuana’s impact on cancerous tissue. For now, the drug still monitored in standard drug testing.
