The cat's out of the bag now, isn't it?

A group of researchers commissioned by the United States government has unwittingly found that cannabis can actually kill cancer cells.

The research was done by a team at St. George's University of London and found that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) weakened cancer cells and made them more susceptible to radiation treatment.

The study, which was published in 2014 in the medical journal Molecular Cancer Therapies, found "dramatic reductions" in fatal types of brain cancer where cannabinoids were used in conjunction with radiation therapy.
