Several studies have been conducted on the effect of cannabidiol on cancer cell growths. Its anti-proliferative effects on glioblastoma multiforme tumor cells are extensively researched.
Cannabidiol, alone or with other agents, has been shown to successfully induce cell death, inhibit cell migration and invasion in vitro, decrease tumor size, vascularization, growth, and weight, and increase survival and induce tumor regression in vivo.
Studies on various breast cancer subtypes have shown that phyto-cannabinoids effectively arrest the cell cycle and induce cell death through pathways such as apoptosis and autophagy. Another herbal remedy with wide range of anticancer active components is soursop leaves.
So if you would want to prepare monkey tail drink as a cancer treatment remedy, adding soursop leaves may just boost the anti proliferative and cellular apoptosis, which these herbs exert on cancer cells.
