 cannabisCannabis has been making a lot of noise lately. Multiple states across the United States and countries around the world have successfully legalized medical Marijuana, and the Uruguay parliament recently voted to create the world’s first legal marijuana market. This is good news as the health benefits of Cannabis are vast, with multiple medical and scientific studies that confirm them. On the other hand, arguments against the use of marijuana is usually published in Psychiatric journals, which show no scientific evidence that Cannabis is harmful to human health. All psychological evaluations from the intake of cannabis are largely based on assumptions, suggestions and observations (1). When we look at the actual science behind Cannabis, the health benefits can be overwhelming. So what does one who opposes the use of cannabis base their belief on? Nothing, not scientific evidence anyways. The negative stigmatism attached to marijuana is due to it’s supposed psychotropic effects, yet again, there is no scientific evidence to show that marijuana has any psychotropic effects. Nonetheless, cannabis has recently been the focus of medical research and considered as a potential therapeutic treatment and cure for cancer.

Cannabis is a great example of how the human mind is programmed and conditioned to believe something. Growing up, we are told drugs are bad, which is very true, however not all substances that have been labelled as “drugs” by the government are harmful. Multiple substances are labelled as a “drug” in order to protect corporate interests. One example is the automobile and energy industry, a car made from hemp is stronger than steel, and can be fuelled from hemp alone. Henry Ford demonstrated this many years ago. Hemp actually has over 50,000 uses!

Let’s take a look at the science behind Cannabis and Cancer. Although Cannabis has been proven to be effective for a large range of ailments, this article will focus mainly on it’s effectiveness in the treatment of cancer. Cannabinoids may very well be one of the best disease and cancer fighting treatments out there. Cannabinoids refer to any of a group of related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. They activate cannabinoid receptors in the body. The body itself produces compounds called endocannabinoids and they play a role in many processes within the body that help to create a healthy environment. Cannabinoids also play a role in immune system generation and re-generation. The body regenerates best when it’s saturated with Phyto-Cannabinoids. Cannabinoids can also be found in Cannabis. It is important to note that the cannabinoids are plentiful in both hemp and cannabis. One of the main differentiations between hemp and cannabis is simply that hemp only contains 0.3% THC while cannabis is 0.4% THC or higher. (Technically they are both strains of Cannabis Sativa.)  Cannabinoids have been proven to reduce cancer cells as they have a great impact on the rebuilding of the immune system. While not every strain of cannabis has the same effect, more and more patients are seeing success in cancer reduction in a short period of time by using cannabis.

While taking a look at these studies, keep in mind that cannabis can be much more effective for medicinal purposes when we eat it rather than smoking it. Below are 20 medical studies that prove cannabis can be an effective treatment and possible cure for cancer. Please keep in mind that this is a very short list of studies that support the use of medicinal marijuana. Please feel free to further your research, hopefully this is a good starting point.

Brain Cancer

1.  A study published in the British Journal of Cancerconducted by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in Madrid, this study determined that Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids inhibit tumour growth. They were responsible for the first clinical study aimed at assessing cannabinoid antitumoral action. Cannabinoid delivery was safe and was achieved with zero psychoactive effects. THC was found to decrease tumour cells in two out of the nine patients.

2. A study published in The Journal of Neuroscience examined the biochemical events in both acute neuronal damage and in slowly progressive, neurodegenerative diseases. They conducted a magnetic resonance imaging study that looked at THC (the main active compound in marijuana) and found that it reduced neuronal injury in rats. The results of this study provide evidence that the cannabinoid system can serve to protect the brain against neurodegeneration.

3. A study published in The Journal of Pharmacology And Experimental Therapeutics already acknowledged the fact that cannabinoids have been shown to possess antitumor properties. This study examined the effect of cannabidiol (CBD, non psychoactive cannabinoid compound) on human glioma cell lines. The addition of cannabidiol led to a dramatic drop in the viability of glioma cells. Glioma is the word used to describe brain tumour.  The study concluded that cannabidiol was able to produce a significant antitumor activity.

4. A study published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics outlines how brain tumours are highly resistant to current anticancer treatments, which makes it crucial to find new therapeutic strategies aimed at improving the poor prognosis of patients suffering from this disease. This study also demonstrated the reversal of tumour activity in Glioblastoma multiforme.

Breast Cancer

5. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine, conducted by the California Pacific Medical Centre determined that cannabidiol (CBD) inhibits human breast cancer cell proliferation and invasion. They also demonstrated that CBD significantly reduces tumour mass.

6. A study published in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics determined that THC as well as cannabidiol dramatically reduced breast cancer cell growth. They confirmed the potency and effectiveness of these compounds.

7. A study published in the Journal Molecular Cancer showed that THC reduced tumour growth and tumour numbers. They determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell proliferation, induce cancer cell apoptosis and impair tumour angiogenesis (all good things). This study provides strong evidence for the use of cannabinoid based therapies for the management of breast cancer.

8. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) determined that cannabinoids inhibit human breast cancer cell proliferation.

Lung Cancer

9. A study published in the journal Oncogeneby Harvard Medical Schools Experimental Medicine Department determined that THC inhibits epithelial growth factor induced lung cancer cell migration and more. They go on to state that THC should be explored as novel therapeutic molecules in controlling the growth and metastasis of certain lung cancers.

10. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine by the Institute of Toxicology and Pharmacology, from the Department of General Surgery in Germany determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell invasion. Effects were confirmed in primary tumour cells from a lung cancer patient.  Overall, data indicated that cannabinoids decrease cancer cell invasiveness.

11. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine, conducted by Harvard Medical School investigated the role of cannabinoid receptors in lung cancer cells. They determined its effectiveness and suggested that it should be used for treatment against lung cancer cells.

Prostate Cancer

12. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine illustrates a decrease in prostatic cancer cells by acting through cannabinoid receptors.

13. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine outlined multiple studies proving the effectiveness of cannabis on prostate cancer.

 14. Another study published by the US National Library of Medicine determined that clinical testing of CBD against prostate carcinoma is a must. That cannabinoid receptor activation induces prostate carcinoma cell apoptosis. They determined that cannabidiol significantly inhibited cell viability. 

Blood Cancer

15. A study published in the journal Molecular Pharmacology recently showed that cannabinoids induce growth inhibition and apoptosis in matle cell lymphoma. The study was supported by grants from the Swedish Cancer Society, The Swedish Research Council and the Cancer Society in Stockholm.

16. A study published in the International Journal of Cancer also determined and illustrated that cannabinoids exert antiproliferative and proapoptotic effects in various types of cancer and in mantle cell lymphoma.

17. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine conducted by the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology by Virginia Commonwealth University determined that cannabinoids induce apoptosis in leukemia cells.

Oral Cancer

18. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine results show cannabinoids are potent inhibitors of cellular respiration and are toxic to highly malignant oral Tumours.

Liver Cancer

19. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine determined that that THC reduces the viability of human HCC cell lines (Human hepatocellular liver carcinoma cell line) and reduced the growth.

Pancreatic Cancer

20. A study published in The American Journal of Cancer determined that cannabinoid receptors are expressed in human pancreatic tumor cell lines and tumour biopsies at much higher levels than in normal pancreatic tissue. Results showed that cannabinoid administration induced apoptosis. They also reduced the growth of tumour cells, and inhibited the spreading of pancreatic tumour cells.

    Cannabis is NOT a Proven Cure – Yet

    #1 Reduction of cancer cell growth in in-vitro and animal studies is not a cure, it’s only a reduction of cell growth. It is not proof it will cure cancer in patients.

    #2 Protecting against neuro-degeneration has nothing to do with curing cancer. It might help seizure sufferers and Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s sufferers.

    #3 Able to produce significant antitumor activity with in-vitro cell strains is not proof it will cure cancer in patients.

    #4 A reversal of tumor activity in in-vitro cells is not proof it will cure cancer in patients.

    #5 Inhibition of cell proliferation and reduction of tumor mass in in-vitro and animal studies is not a “cure”, it’s just a reduction in tumor size. It is not proof that it will cure cancer in people.

    #6 A dramatic reduction of cell growth in in-vitro studies is only a reduction of cell growth, not a cure. It is not proof ingesting cannabis concentrates will cure breast cancer in patients.

    #7 Inhibition of cancer cell proliferation, induction of cancer cell apoptosis, and impairment of tumor angiogenesis ARE all good things but none is a cure. Notice it says cannabinoid therapies might be useful for the MANAGEMENT of breast cancer. There is no evidence of a cure in this study.

    #8 Inhibition of human breast cancer cell proliferation in-vitro is not proof it will cure cancer in patients.

    #9 Inhibition of epithelial growth factor and lung cancer cell migration in the lab is not proof of a cure for patients. Notice it says that THC should be explored as novel therapeutic molecules in controlling the growth and metastasis of certain lung cancers. IT DOES NOT SAY IT’S A CURE!

    #10 Inhibition of cancer cell invasion – even when confirmed in primary tumor cells taken from a lung cancer patient, but treated in a petrie dish, is not proof it can cure patients when ingested. It is only evidence of inhibition of cancer cell invasion when cells are treated with cannabinoids in the lab.

    #11 This report on animal and in-vitro studies states, “It seems that the studies of Sarfaraz and colleagues lead to the direction that cannabinoids should be considered as agents for the management of prostate cancer, pending support from in vivo experiments.” There is no mention that cannabis cures prostate cancer in patients.

    This is getting monotonous. Suffice it to say none of the studies mentioned in this article were conducted on patients. Very few of them were even conducted on rats. Most were conducted on strains of cells in glass dishes in laboratories. While the results show that cannabinoids can inhibit cancer cell growth, accelerate cancer cell death, and reduce cancer cell proliferation and invasiveness keep in mind that if you pour alcohol in a petrie dish of cancer cells it will inhibit their proliferation and cause many of them to die. Ingesting alcohol is not a cure for cancer. Neither is cannabis – yet.

    The studies simply have not been done with patients to see if any combination or strength of cannabis compounds can produce the same results in patients as can be produced in the lab. Even if the studies had been done, and even if they showed the same inhibition and cell death acceleration, THAT STILL IS NOT A CURE. It is just inhibition of proliferation and acceleration of cell death.

    Double-blind studies on human patients that show cannabis kills all cancer cells in their bodies and eliminates tumors entirely long term is proof cannabis can cure cancer.

    These studies prove no such thing.

    Don’t they teach ANY science in school anymore? How can you consider yourself Collective Evolution when you can’t reason any better than this? Seems like collective regression to me.

    • The Anti Tumoral effects and numerous human cases all over the world make it clear that it can indeed cure cancer…the success rates are extraordinary, and the science is there to back it up. I understand what you are saying that cell death and inhibition of proliferation does not = cure.

      • Catherine Myers

        THERE HAVE BEEN NO SCIENTIFIC HUMAN STUDIES, ONLY SELF-REPORTED DATA COLLECTION AND ANECDOTES FROM PEOPLE WHO, IN VIRTUALLY ALL CASES, HAVE USED CONVENTIONAL THERAPIES EITHER PRIOR TO OR CONCURRENTLY WITH THE USE OF CANNABIS OIL. Why don’t you mention that?

        Desperate people will believe just about anything. And greedy people will tell them just about anything to make a buck. You are part of the problem!

        When I was undergoing cancer treatment, I encountered a woman who was so desperate to believe something was going to cure her that she convinced herself the doctors had put special medicine in the water cooler in the waiting room where we were waiting. She said you could taste the medicine in it. She urged me to drink some because it would cure me. Because she was so insistent, I tasted the water. It was obvious that the cooler had not been properly maintained and what the woman was tasting was algae build-up. But she was absolutely convinced it was a cancer cure.

        The same phenomenon is at work in the people reporting cannabis has cured their cancer. People are not considered cured until they have survived five years without recurrence. People have not been using concentrated cannabis for five years yet! Concentrated cannabis is a very new proposed treatment put forward by those who want cannabis concentrates legalized. It is possible that cannabis will eventually be added to the medications used to treat cancer. If my cancer returned, I might try it, but only as an adjunct to therapies that have been studied and have been scientifically shown to increase my chances.

        Anyone who tells a cancer patient to “Run From the Cure” is doing a very grave disservice to someone fighting for his or her life. First of all, there is no cure to run from. There are only medications that HAVE been shown – in peer reviewed and replicated double blind, long-term, human clinical trials – to increase survival for some cancer patients. For others, the benefits of those therapies might not be worth the side effects. In those cases, the “Stay High Until You Die” strategy might be the best course. But there are a lot of people for whom conventional treatment can be a cure. I am one of them. And so are hundreds of thousands of other Americans including 80% of childhood cancer victims.

        Have you ever considered that you are playing into the hands of the insurance companies and government health care programs that want to reduce expenses for cancer treatment? Have you ever considered that there is a movement to promote the “Stay High Until You Die” strategy for treating cancer because it will be far less expensive than conventional treatment?

        Have you ever considered that you are encouraging desperate people who are fighting for their lives to pin their hopes on snake oil and eschew treatments that do have a chance of helping them survive? Do you want that on your head? If not, change the headline buddy and stop using it to drive clicks on your blog.

        • M

          Your statements are significant Catherine. But cannabis is not that well researched for obvious reasons. I do not believe you need to be rude however… Even if the author wants votes. The plant needs to be studied more and it’s thousands of medical benefits need to be explored. It’s not just for pain relief..

          • mdm

            The extracts of cannabis are studied extensively throughtout the world – its just hasnt been shown to do anything worthwhile safe or an improvemwnt of current treatment – the notion that there is only one country in th world doing any research into it is just infantile. It would help if you dont make sill y unsubstantiated statements about the ” thousands of health benefits ” where there are none currently . Ther ehave been several sensible post on here but go to any pro drug website and you would be convinced that cancer was one disease and it was instantly curable with cannabis / cannabis oil in unknow quantity/ frequency / dose. its just garbage.

          • Catherine Myers

            Oh, you have not seen rude!

            I was diagnosed with stage III metastatic breast cancer in 2001. Since I was diagnosed, over HALF A MILLION American women have died of breast cancer – more than 40,000 every single year. We have been using polite pink ribbons to try to bring attention to this disease for over 30 years with absolutely no improvement in long-term survival beyond 5 years and the rate of new diagnoses just keeps going up. It was one in 11 when I was diagnosed, now it’s 1 in 8. So I am way beyond polite! Ask ACT-UP how polite they were when trying to get something done about AIDS.

            Claiming cannabis can cure cancer when we are clearly a very long way from knowing if it can even help in cancer treatment is a hideous thing to do to people who are afraid, confused, and fighting for their lives. So, yes, there IS a need to be just as rude, crude, and socially unacceptable as it takes to get people to STOP making it harder for cancer patients by spewing ridiculous claims on the internet.

            I agree cannabis needs to be studied further. Until it is I WILL rip, rag-on, and railroad anyone who gives cancer patients false hope – especially if they’re doing it to line their own pockets.

            So I re-iterate this author’s reasoning ability is very low if he really thinks that any of the studies he cites prove cannabis can cure cancer. He needs to revise his headline. The only reason he doesn’t is because he is making money off of it!

          • It’s not just the studies Catherine…its the people all over the world using it to cure their cancer. It’s worked a number of times, and these studies (out of many) clearly demonstrate the anti-tumoral effects of cancer. It’s not hard to put two and two together.

          • Catherine Myers

            The author writes: “It’s not just the studies Catherine…its the people all over the world using it to cure their cancer. It’s worked a number of times, and these studies (out of many) clearly demonstrate the anti-tumoral effects of cancer. It’s not hard to put two and two together.”

            OMG! You are too dense for words! How do you know it’s worked “a number of times” to cure anyone’s cancer? You did not cite even one such anecdote in this article! To what “studies” are you referring that show the “anti-tumoral effects of cancer”? What does that even mean???? If you mean the anti-tumoral effects of cannabis on human tumor-regression in actual patients – THERE AREN’T ANY SUCH STUDIES AND YOU CERTAINLY DO NOT CITE ANY HERE!. Why not? BECAUSE THERE AREN’T ANY!

            Why keep pretending that you have evidence that cannabis can cure cancer when you have none! You can cite 1000 trials where somebody poured anything from alcohol to nicotine, to drain cleaner in a petri dish with cancer cells and it will stop them from growing and pretty much kill them. Then you can put two and two together in your tiny little brain and put a misleading headline on it and make money on your blog! That is what you have done. That is all you have done and I’m calling you out on it. Putting two and two together in your miniscule mind is not good enough for cancer patients faced with life or death decisions! SO STOP IT! Just stop it.

          • mdmd

            So you are seriously suggesting that your proof that cannabis cures cancer ” is a patient who dies from cancer. This “case report” is open access, non peeer reviewed and states false statements such as “cannabinoid resin extract is used as an effective treatment for ALL” – this is false
            It is appalling written in particular the ridiculous conclusion that the patient with leukemia died not from leukemia but from ” the side effects of the chemotherapy” – this is the evidence equivalent of used toilet paper.

            I could submit a similar paper – its just utter fantasy – I would suggest trying again. In a peer reviewed joural in a controlled trial comparing conventional treatment with cannabis extract. Good luck with that.

          • Yes but the antitumoral effects of cannabis are all in peer reviewed highly reputable journals. At the same time we shouldn’t limit our research to that, independent research is very important.

            I have a hard time seeing your point of view, given all of the evidence and proof…but out is what it is. Thanks for visiting our site:)

          • mdm

            “If you mean the anti-tumoral effects of cannabis on human tumor-regression in actual patients – THERE AREN’T ANY SUCH STUDIES AND YOU CERTAINLY DO NOT CITE ANY HERE!. Why not? BECAUSE THERE AREN’T ANY! ”

            I presume you havent addressed this reply earlier as you cant. Im afraid you are part of the cannabis cult. You are a believer and have seen miracles because people tell you. it is completely faith based and anyone who asks for proof is a heretic ( shill/ sheep/ big pharma/ etc etc). There are NO studies of cannabis treating humans. NONE. End of. The information isnt out there . Only made up crap is out there.

            I am glad you agree that this “story ” is utterly meaningless. The doctors didnt administer the drug and had no idea what she got. Its a farce, Its not evidence. The blast cells improved slightly according to them – completely unverifiable – due to what – delayed action of chemo – or the bone marrow? Perhaps it was the mysterious cannabis oil – the bottom line is she died . Shes dead. It didnt cure her cancer. im not sure how much more evidence you need.
            You could perhaps say this is an interesting phenomenon perhaps it merits further research to see if this was a one off – but for the ” authors” to make glib statements about it being useful treatment in ALL is completely false as shows why they could not publish it anywhere as it would have been laughed at. As is the conclusion someone with leukaemia didnt die of leukaemia it was the chemotherapy….its utter drivel

            Patients arent told to go home, and wait for a stroke in two months as most patients die from infection …its just utter crap.
            But die none the less – and you hold this as ” proof” that cannabis cures cancer.Even by your own limited understanding you must see that this contradicts your own point and means utterly nothing. The fact that you can really see my point of view doenst mean anything other than you are colossally thick or just pretending

            Im not sure what ” independant research” is ? The reason that material is peer reviewed is essentially so that people cant publish crap and say things like “cannabis cures cancer” and get away with it. If you mean ” independant of any basis in reality or fact then I understand.

            Cannabis xealots like you are the cult that make people angry. Time to go and gain a little intelligence.

        • My mom was cancer free for almost 7 years. Tumors from the breast cancer cells, previously dormant, began to cause ascites until she has so much pressure she cant walk more the 6 steps,,, The said they can give her a cathedar to drain it after she exhausts chemo. My mom was probably 190 lbs at 5 4. I know that’s big, but now she’s probably 150 at most. 3 months after starting chemo, she’s bald, hellish rashes all over her body, still can’t walk further than a few steps, and is vomiting on a daily basis. She’s convinced that cannabis must not be safe because of all the Anslinger/Hearst asskissers’ propaganda in the world. Chemo isn’t working and I fear she will succumb to her cancer before the white house stops playing god with our health and freedom of making adult oriented decisions. Like say for instance, smoking a joint without consequences from legal ramifications. Or the big topic of the day – Cannabis Oil’s stigma with federal offense charges vs. Ensuring your loved ones have a fighting chance against their cancer + a higher chance at successful pain management.Even if it doesn’t ‘CURE’ cancer it sure beats watching your loved one waste away on chemo without an human form of relief. If anyone thinks people should use cannabis to treat cancer, they should be taken behind the nearest building and hog-tied with a couple rolls of duct tape.

      • Karola

        then all the people who post on face book telling us it helped them with there kids are lying. Why would they want to do that?????????????????????????????????????????????????????/

        • mdm

          Why would they do that ? Lots of reasons. ..They object to cannabis being illegal and feel promoting it as a medicine will help legalise it. They are selling cannabis oil as a useless cure to make money so it’s profitable . They have no proof so they are idiots . You did say Facebook and not the New England Journal of Medicine ? People can post any rubbish ….I’m sure people have posted on alien abductions. Doesn’t make it true either. …

          • Michael

            Cannabis costs nothing if you’re growing it yourself, and making your own oil, so how can anyone profit from it? Of course there are amounts of money to be dished out to grow and make the oil, but nothing compared to one month of chemo treatments. With the US govt tying up anyone wanting to do real research on it (you have to get the weed from the US govt, which has been known to, ahem, take their time in getting said weed to the researchers), don’t hold your breath for any domestic research results coming out soon. But strange that the govt has taken out at least two patents on cannabinoids.
            But taking that logic of who will profit (and don’t get me wrong, if you follow the money, most always you’ll find any culprit), I can say that anyone dumping on the idea of help from cannabis can be a shill for the liquor industry. They’re the last ones who want to see this legalized. But at least people who choose to do their own research and make their decision on a form of treatment can do so in states where medicinal cannabis is legal, so at least we’ve arrived to that point.

          • mdm

            Oh please don’t insult my intelligence – ” people can choose to do their own research” Really? By doing what exactly.If you had any earth based insight you would perhaps acknowledge that is ” cannabis oil cured cancer” or any other disease it would be the only drug in history where it didnt matter the dose , the amount the strength, the quantity or the disease. Its garbage. As for no money to be made / grow your own – so presumably you can make your own amioderone , apsirin, digoxin or penicillin then – all from natural ingredients or plants and just lying around? or chemotherapy – some of that is extracted from soil? its a little more complicated that your childish explanations account for.

            For ” cancer” take ” cannabis oil….whatever you like it ….doesnt matter….for epilpesy – a few forms in a few cases we have to take parents reports – quite rightly it is now being given as trial to see if it works and if there are long term side effects as we know ( or thinking people know) i has profound effects of memory and brain development. Its not harmless.
            If you could think for amoment you would know there are huge amounts of research carried out on cannabis in the US so again you are wrong. If it was difficult then it would simply carried outin what the rest of the world calles ” the rest of the world” – Europe Asia Canada….its not hard.

            The bottom line is there isnt a single shred of proof that cannabis oil works other than facebook and youtube – which show that the Yeti and aliens exist too. Its trash.
            There has been one study in humans for brain cancer about 13 years ago. Direct injection in the brain – they all died.
            Sorry to burst your bubble with reality check and throw away the same rehashed explanations for why its stifled research/ schill / chemo/ big pharma/ run from the cure…..

            It doesnt work in humans. Cyanide kills cancer cells in a petri dish. So what……

        • Catherine Myers

          There is quite strong anecdotal evidence that cannabis can help children with devastating seizure disorders. That’s probably what you’re reading on FB. I’m sure it could also have a strong sedative effect and make children more cooperative during cancer treatments so maybe that’s what parents mean when they say it helped their child. This would be a juvenile version of the Stay High Until You Die strategy. But since it is known that cannabis has a devastating effect on the developing brain of normal children, anyone who gives it to a child is taking a huge risk. That said, rather than watch my child seize 24-7, I would probably try cannabis oil. Parents trying to help a dying child will do just about anything. But since 80% of childhood cancers are cured with conventional therapies, anyone who gives only cannabis to a child with cancer could be giving them a death sentence.

  7. To all of the people that think pot cures cancer – there’s a big difference between killing cancer in a petri dish and killing it in a person’s body. By that logic bleach cures cancer as well. And yes, while it’s possible that THC might kill some cancer that’s a lot different than “smoking pot kills cancer” or “cannabis oil cures cancer”. You still have to come up with some kind of effective delivery mechanism and it has to be something effective enough to actually stop the cancer. There are plenty of drugs (ex. chemotherapy) that can kill most cancer cells. But it only takes a few for the cancer to keep spreading. So showing that THC is effective on cancer doesn’t mean it’s a cure. I’m all for legalizing pot, both for the medical research and to keep people out of jail, but once you start believing there’s an international conspiracy between all governments, universities and pharmaceutical companies to suppress an effective cancer drug – that’s where the tin foil hats come out.

      Good God ….someone with a notion of reality……………you will be on your own for a while..

      • So,in essence ,all the dozens (maybe hundreds) of testimonials depicting recovery from cancer using CBD oil are fake? Please! It might also behoove you to entertain the words hope and humility- They are very powerful but I see no trace of them in your e-mails – I have a dear friend who is stage 4 cancer and has used chemo for many months- Recently he switched to an M.D. who uses CBD oil.

      Take synthetic substances so pharmaceutical companies and people like you can continue making insane amounts of $$$. Got it. Thanks.

      Next are you going to tell us cannabis is not having a profound effect on severe paediatric epilepsy (Charlotte Figi, Zaki Jackson… Thousands of other kids) because it hasn’t been tested properly?

      The results are just there because of the ridiculous stubborn stance of politicians and people like you.

      Taming THC: potential cannabis synergy and phytocannabinoid-terpenoid entourage effects
      Ethan B Russo

      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3165946/#!po=2.20339

      Israeli researcher, Raphael Mechoulam was one of the first people to study cannabis in a lab. He’s credited with discovering THC, CBD and all the other cannabinoids. He also advocates for the “whole plant” approach to medical cannabis because of what he calls the “entourage effect”…

      From Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s article on CNN:

      “It was halfway through our long afternoon discussion that Mechoulam, now 83, pulled out a paper he had written in 1999, describing something known as “the entourage effect.”

      Think of it like this: There are more than 480 natural components found within the cannabis plant, of which 66 have been classified as ‘cannabinoids…’

      …Here is the important point. Mechoulam, along with many others, said he believes all these components of the cannabis plant likely exert some therapeutic effect, more than any single compound alone.

      While science has not yet shown the exact role or mechanism for all these various compounds, evidence is mounting that these compounds work better together than in isolation: That is the ‘entourage effect.’”

    What if you have 4 autoimmune illnesses, lots of pain, and would benefit from cannibis oil, in my state it is illegal. States where it is legal, cannot mail to you. So how can I take advantage of the healing and pain lowering benefits of CBT? I’m only interested in MM to improve my health, no other reason. Thank you.

    • Hi I have a friend that just found out she has breastfeeding cancer we live in las vegas nv and need to know how to order cannabis oil please help us. Peaceful kim

    • Move to a state that understands illness – and move out of one promoting LOADS of illness.

        What state, my husband is dying from liver cancer ,he would try anything.

          California, Washington, or Colorado are probably the most advanced in any type of Medicinal Pot Science since they have been the pioneers of the movement. Soon enough, it will probably be legal in all 50 states in some way or another, but if you need the help now, I suggest moving to these states. If you need a good source of political info, just use Vice. They have a youtube and their own website, but they do very informative documentaries and articles on the state of medical pot, and pot legalization. If you look on NORML, you will find some more great resources as well as information about pot legalization in your state. Also, if you want the most accurate scientific information about all substances (regardless of legal standing), look at Erowid. They can give you lots of handy info about alternative treatments, with very precise and to the point reports about their own personal experiences as well as possible self-synthesis methods.
