“Our laboratory is interested in searching for a new plant-based therapeutics to treat ovarian cancer.
We are interested in studying anti-cancer effects of KY grown hemp as a potential candidate drug.
Marijuana and hemp belong to the same genus and species. However, they are different in cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content.
Both CBD and THC are therapeutically beneficial. Hemp is harmless and non-addictive.
Major objective of this study is to investigate whether KY hemp extract can modulate the metastasis of ovarian cancer.
Based on the data here we conclude that KY hemp has significant anti-metastatic properties against ovarian cancer.”
