Marijuana Chemical Cannabidiol Halts Spread of Breast Cancer Tumors

In embryos, Id-1 is responsible for helping cells grow and spread, but is supposed to remain inactive in adults. In human adults, it is found only in metastatic
cancer cells, or cancer cells that are spreading throughout the body.
