“The main chemical component of cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD), has been shown to have antitumor properties.
The present study examined the in vitro effects of CBD on human gastric cancer SGC-7901 cells.
We found that CBD significantly inhibited the proliferation and colony formation of SGC-7901 cells.
These results indicated that CBD could induce G0-G1 phase cell cycle arrest and apoptosis by increasing ROS production, leading to the inhibition of SGC-7901 cell proliferation, thereby suggesting that CBD may have therapeutic effects on gastric cancer.”
“These findings may be utilized in the development of CBD as a potential drug for the treatment of gastric cancer.”
