The former boxer, who earlier this year hosted a cannabis-themed music festival in California, revealed the revelation in the latest episode of his podcast, Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, featuring rapper Jim Jones, which you can watch below. “What do we smoke a month?” Tyson asked his co-host Eben Britton. “Is it $40,000 a month?”
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.
