"The life expectancy for pancreatic cancer patients has barely changed in the last 40 years because there are very few, and mostly only palliative care, treatments available".

Mice with pancreatic cancer that were treated with medical cannabis and chemotherapy survived nearly three times longer than those treated with chemotherapy alone, according to a new study.

CBD does not contain the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that is present in cannabis and is responsible for associated psychoactive effects. Clinical trials are needed to confirm whether or not CBD improves survival rates of pancreatic cancer patients.
