Importantly, this substance does not produce the psychoactive properties of the cannabis plant. A team from the California Pacific Medical Center, in San Francisco, first spotted its potential five years ago, after it stopped the proliferation of human breast cancer cells in the lab. Another Spanish team, led by Dr Manuel Guzmon, wanted to see whether they could prevent a form of cancer (glioblastoma multiforme) from growing by cutting off its blood supply. The mice were given a cancer similar to the human brain cancer (glioblastoma multiforme). Cannabinoids halt VEGF production by producing Ceramide. Dr Guzmon said: “As far as we know, this is the first report showing that ceramide depresses VEGF pathway by interfering with VEGF production.” They then wanted to see if this would also happen with humans.

How Hemp Got High If Genome Biology had been launched today, instead of 11 years ago, it might well have been given the alternative title of "Transcriptome Biology". While Genome Biology captured the millennial zeitgeist of genomics brought about by the project(s) to sequence the human genome, the breathtaking progress of this field in the intervening decade has brought us to a new frontier: the transcriptome. The development of RNA-seq, which applies high-throughput next-generation sequencing technology to cDNA generated from RNA samples, has resulted in an explosion of transcriptome sequences. Species such as Cannabis sativa, a plant with a 'split personality', whose Dr Jekyll, hemp, is an innocent source of textiles, but whose Mr Hyde, marijuana, is chiefly used to alter the mind. Gene expression levels observed in the plant's flower made the likely reason for phenotypic differences between hemp and marijuana strikingly apparent.
