The Top 4 Medical Studies That Prove Cannabis Can Cure Brain Cancer

braincanFor years, an unnecessary label has been attached to this plant, and the fact that it is classified as an illegal drug for no reason is obscure.  Furthermore, the studies that prove cannabis can cure brain cancer are done so by safe cannabinoid delivery with zero psychoactive effects.

It’s becoming more clear that multiple substances labelled as “drugs” by the government as harmful  are most likely illegal due to the fact that they threaten multiple corporate interests. Prescription drugs alone kill over 100, 000 people every year. Our governments and the corporations that run them don’t have the best interests of the human race at hand. It seems that we should be more concerned about the drugs that are legal, as much as we are concerned about the ones that are not. Instead of constantly relying on them for information (corporations and governments), it’s up to us to do our own research and find out the truth for ourselves.

Cannabis has been proven to be effective for a wide range of ailments, this article will focus mainly on brain cancer. Cannabinoids refer to any 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 key role in many processes throughout the body that help to create a healthy environment. They also play an important role in immune system generation and re-generation.

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. I’ve provided one of many examples of this at the bottom of the article.

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 a 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.

Method of Ingestion

Contrary to popular belief, smoking the Cannabis is not the most effective way in treating disease within the body as therapeutic levels cannot be reached through smoking. Creating oil from the plant or eating the plant is the best way to go about getting the necessary ingredients which are the Cannabinoids. Also, when Cannabis is heated and burnt it changes the chemical structure and acidity of the THC. This changes its ability to be therapeutic and anytime you burn something and inhale it, you create oxidation within the body. Oxidation is not healthy for the body and can lead to health issues in itself.

Cannabis- whether Sativa, Indica, Ruderalis, male, female, hermaphrodite, wild, bred for fiber, seeds or medicinal resin – is a vegetable with every dietary essential we can’t synthesize. It has essential amino acids, fatty acids and cannabinoid acids. Apart from that, it has hundreds of anti-cancer compounds.

If you heat the plant, you will decarboxylate THC-acid and you will get high, you’ll get you 10 mg. If you don’t heat it, you can go up to five or six hundred milligrams and use it as a dietary cannabis and push it up to the anti-oxidant and neuro-protective levels which come into play at hundreds of milligrams – Dr William Courtney

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) maintains our biological systems by regulating each cell tissue. It uses Arachadonic acid/Omega 6 to make Endo-Cannabinoids. These are fatty molecules that communicate harm between cells. Dietary Cannabis mimics the ECS by providing Cannabinoids when there is an Arachadonic acid deficiency or clinical Cannabinoid deficiency.

    There is a dangerous misrepresentation here. It speaks about the studies that show cannabis as a potential cancer treatment and then goes on to speak about raw cannabis being more therapeutic. But the studies showing anti tumour properties are concerning decarboxylated THC and CBD. The raw cannabinoid acids like THCA and CBDA don’t have the same properties and are not proven to kill cancer cells. So while it is true that heating it causes THCA to lose it’s acidity and become THC, which also makes it psychoactive, it is not true that this decreases it’s therapeutic potential. In fact decarboxylation is necessary to activate the cancer killing properties. THC kills cancer through activation of CB1 and CB2, CBD does it through CB2 and GRP55 receptors. Raw THCA cannot activate any of these receptors so cannot kill cancer cells through the same methods. There are theories that THCA has anti cancer effects through other pathways, but this remains unproven and the pathways involved remain unknown.
    I am not knocking the benefits of raw THCA and CBDA. But they should not be confused with decarboxylated THC and CBD. It is THC and CBD that are proven to kill cancer and while you can take larger quantities of THCA than you can THC with out getting high, this is of little value for cancer patients if the effects of THCA are not comparable to THC.

    • MattMatt,

      How could you put any stock in any research? All the hoopla in regards to cannabis is about making a highly profitable industry for cannabis as states begin to legalize it. I’ve seen a lot of spam here trying to sell cannabis oil and what not.

      There simply are no experts in the field of health care so there will be no valid research or studies. Harvard and Berkeley train their students to fail. If there were trained experts we would be seeing cures and preventions. That will never happen. There is no desire to cure and or prevent disease.

      I will spam the truth.

      If anyone wants to visit the truth about health, healing and disease and how the human immune system is designed to provide immunity to disease, feel free to stop by my facebook page. I assure you, it will save you money when you know the truth about today’s natural and western medicine and how ineffective both are.

    This is a little off subject, but I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in December 2011. My brother told me about Rick Simpson oil and so I did a little research and though what have I got to loose! In February 2012 I started a Clinical Trial and also Rick Simpson oil. I was finally removed from the clinical trial November 2013, the longest person on the trial. I believe the Rick Simpson oil has something to do with my being here today. Oh, and as far as coming off the study the cancer spread to my lungs… Sad thing is I had quit the Rick Simpson oil a month before that. Believe me, I am back on the oil and a firm believer!

    • Lekcuts and anyone reading Lekcuts’s comment, it is pure spam. I’ve seen comments on many other topic’s here trying to promote Rick Simpson’s Cannabis Oil and they are all just plugs for selling the oil.

      Cannabis does not cure disease, sometimes the people who use cannabis oil cure themselves of disease. The only cure for disease is the human immune system. Behind every cure through snake oil products is an immune system perfectly capable of curing any disease. That is why the sugar pill has cured more disease than any other pill or product. That is why today’s so called commercial science industry test every new drug against a sugar pill.

      All a person needs to cure cancer is common sense, wisdom and a lot of truth. You don’t have to buy everything being spammed as a cure just so someone can line their pockets at your expense.

        I am a long time Holistic Therapist using gentle effective “original plant medicine” for healing many diseases, including cancer. Cannabis is something I have included with teas, edibles, tinctures, and juicing leaves. Rick Simpson began his journey to heal himself of cancer when conventional treatments failed. He made the original oil and passed it to his friends with amazing results. He is exiled in a foreign country or he will go to prison for his efforts and without receiving money for what he does. He up for the Nobel Prize. For the past 3 years, I have worked with infants born with incurable brain stem cancer who have healed with rapid timing; without brain surgery, radiation, or surgery. Babies receiving chemo, radiation, surgery and pain medication are following the rest of American’s dying because of “allopathic toxic medicine.” DuPont and Rockefeller banned a God given healing plant to make their next fortune in synthetic chemical fibers and deliberately ended Scientific Studies for Natural Medicine and the use of food supplements for the long term treatment of disease, including all the teaching materials for medical colleges. Times Up! The Western Medicine Cancer …Including Run for the Cure…Give Me Donations Because the Cure Is On the Way…..need to admit, “We have failed. And, we have failed, miserably!” This Trillion dollar industry needs to be sued for every infant, child, and adult they have killed by peddling their toxic medicine. Bottom line: Cannabis Heals and Chemo Kills. I am personally going to Run From the Cure! Google: The President’s Cancer Panel Report 208-2010. Millions of more Americans are going to develop cancer because of the increased global environmental pollution.

        • Not really SHW. The human immune system cures people not cannabis.

          • SHW

            Cannabis super boosts the immune system and is a super omega and antioxidant. It is also loaded with chlorophyll adding cleansing to the blood, tissues, cells, and organs and a shot of oxygen…it assists the body to do what it does, naturally. Build, repair and expire cells to maintain health. This is the job of a fully functioning immune system. Constant bombardment and the accumulation of toxins creates a high acidity internal environment that breeds disease. Chemo further weakens the immune system by adding for toxins to the blood stream. Read the President’s Cancer Panel Report 2008-2010.

          • SHW says “Read the President’s Cancer Panel Report 2008-2010.”

            Every single word printed on the “President’s Cancer Panel Report 2008-2010″ is as false as your comments about cannabis.

            There is no truth whatsoever in today’s medicine or your comments on cannabis, at least cannabis is a feel good drug.

            Today’s medicine is made up of weak chemistry and weaker hypothesis. SHW, you cannot post ONE single fact about the disease known as “cancer” or how “cannabis” works. Every word you share, copy and paste is pure and flimsy hypothesis. Hypothesis CANNOT cure or prevent disease so therefore neither can cannabis.

            SHW is trying to PAVE the way for the legalized cannabis industry and nothing more. Cannabis will be sold as a “cure all” medicine, people will get hooked on it and it will NEVER EVER EVER get in the way of natural or western medicine. It will compliment the commercialized industry of medicine like no other product will.

    • peter,sevelj

      I am one of many that think canaboid oils do work and in response to your remarks, Lekuts, i do believe that there is compounding evidence that it does have medical benifets to ease suffering or even life saving quallities to its use. The pharmacutical industry will always throw sceptical veiws towards it as for one they make too much money supporting multi billion dollar exploytation of their own wonder drugs etc. Why are they trying to develope a synthetic version of it then, so they can control it all the way from manufacture and beyond thats why. (Remember we are talking huge money to be made.) And point two, only you and only people like you that do trials in this area can say if it helps your condition in reality, and they have done studies on dogs /cats ,pets that have remarkable effects for the animals, and they cant speek but my point here is if your pet is unwell or termanily sick and it helps them you as their owner will see it for yourself too. I commend you for being open minded to the fact that you have nothing to loose by going down this path and no one has the right to stop

  14. Today I studied the method of Rick Simpson and this method makes sense, but there will be even more plants we may use,It is up to the scientists to find them.
    The difference with my method is: I have discovered the cause of a disease: the faulty bio-computer, I restore also with a plant, externally and in places which are indicated by your body!!! These signals are proof that your body calls for help.
    the circle is complete: cause, treatment and product. and this holds true for all diseases.
    Healing made simple: thanks: nature and human intelligence.

    • Ricks method is “dirty”, and his oil contains cancer causing carcinogens. These mthods were tested in the Netherlands. The cleanest and most efficient way to collect trichromes is Supercritical CO2 extraction. Contrary to popular belief, you dont need to heat cannabis to make a medicinal oil. You only need to convert it thru decarboxylation. I never heat my cannabis to make oil. It degrades THC into CBN, causing a more sedative oil.

  15. Some folk don’t or did not have the time to wait for the outcome of these trials, and whatever the outcome many belief that decisions will be made on profitability. Many have followed the Rick Simpson method and cured themselves, & come-out of the closet & documented their story. Further, I don’t see any relatives of these people posting on the web saying their relative died just the same or any other bad thing about the RSO method.

  16. Yes, the solution is in nature, if you respect the logic and secrets of your biological system.
    First you have to restore the cause of a disease: a faulty bio-computer.
    A faulty bio-computer sends signals to get help.
    These signals was discovered as well the natural product (external treatment – osmosis)
    Everyone can heal itself, your personalized health book informs you how to do it.
    My invention cures all psychical and mental diseases: Medicine was rewritten, pills or drugs are illogical, the side effects are the evidence.

    We don’t need to wait for those whom we were taught to listen to and respect in order to believe. Stop wasting your energy in ‘scientific clinical trials’ and use your wonderful power of intuition and wisdom. Believe in those who personally attest to the powers of Cannabis. Yes it does cure cancer, yes it does shrink brain tumours, yes it does reverse Parkinson’s disease, yes it does cure diabetes, yes it does give Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferers hope and even cure in many cases,. The list goes on and on.

    Google Rick Simpson for starters. The man should be made a saint.

    Lets stop thinking in second dimensional mode. Lets stop theorising, lets start believing.

    • Thanks for the post, totally agree with intuition and wisdom. I don’t think there is any theorizing, as science now proves what our intuition knew long before.

      • James

        Thank you Arjun for sharing your thoughts.

    • James said: “We don’t need to wait for those whom we were taught to listen to and respect in order to believe. Stop wasting your energy in ‘scientific clinical trials’ and use your wonderful power of intuition and wisdom.”

      I read that and thought you were quoting me James. LOL, I love that line and truer words where never spoken except by me when I said the same thing but under different context.

      I just posted the trials for cannabis and brain tumors and I stated there that cannabis doesn’t cure anything and it doesn’t lesson the truth of your statement above because NO STUDY will ever cure anything or improve the health of humanity.

      Like I told kathy on the other topic, you too also have entirely too much respect for cannabis and nothing for your own personal immune system or the immune systems of those who claimed to be cured by using cannabis.

      The human immune system is the single most common denominator in every person ever cured of anything and the plain scientific fact it the human immune system can cure anything and prevent anything, that’s what an immune system is for.

      So cannabis is no different from a sugar pill, just a better high. I think you will like my comment on the TRIAL topic. I’m not saying cannabis does not have a place in healing because it does remove stress and stress gets in the way of immunity more than anything else. That and it sometimes can help a person get a grip on their emotions so they can learn the truth. So everyone light up and soak up some truth, cannabis as wonderful as it is does not cure cancer but it can work as a placebo allowing a person’s immune system to cure the cancer, God bless cannabis and the immune system.

    THANKYOU. I have removed cancerous growths from the backs of my hands, chest, arms and head (bald) using cannabis oil applied topically. (Check out “Rick Simpson’s Phoenix Tears” on Youtube.) TWO weeks, let every thing heal, settle down, and then repeat even if it all looks good, just to be sure. I am going to live longer than I used to think. Please, spread the word. Peace, together. Thankyou.

    • Thanks for sharing!

    • Glastonbury, if the oil is working on your skin it means cannabis oil is a fungicide but here is the data we need from you, we need you to be honest and very scientific. If the skin crusties are all gone now, let us know if they come back because if they do not start to come back after a few weeks or months then it means that cannabis is the most effective topical fungicide known to man because jock itch cream will eliminate skin crusties “cancer” but it will not penetrate deep enough to keep it from coming back later.

      I will be able to test the cannabis oil topically to confirm your observation. It should work equally well on psoriasis and other fungal diseases.

        David, the oil has done a great job on my skin. I am finding that when I treat the areas again, blisters SOMETIMES occur. I am taking this as a signal to back off for a bit. I have been taking 3 grains orally (1 grain = 1 grain of rice) late at night because I prefer not to get high. I started with 1 and slowly built up a tolerance to it. I now sleep right through the night whereas I used to get up to pee 3,4 and sometimes 5 times. I am so rested now.I feel as though my prostate has shrunk and my bladder can now retain more. Does anyone know if this is possible/feasible?????????

          Yes your prostate can be inflamed and then shrink. That’s what the drugs do, they are noninflammatory so they shrink the prostate so you can hold your water longer. Your body can do it as well. There are lots of reasons your prostate can shrink on it own, one would be improved sleep. Life will improve substantially if you continue to get better sleep. In that regards, the cannabis can really help but I seriously doubt the cannabis is what is shrinking your prostate.

          My interest is in know for fact whether or not cannabis is an effective topical fungicide. Oregano Oil is reported to be a fungicide but it isn’t. Your case interested me because you talked about “skin cancer” and the fact that skin cancer is nothing more than fungus.

          Just about any oil will aggravate fungi but as far as I can prove there is none that will make a skin crusty die off completely. Not even over the counter fungicides. The OTC products will make a crusty look completely cured but typically in time, maybe months the crusty will come back. Black Salve is the only product I know of that will take a crusty out permanently and it can be fairly ugly process I don’t stand behind so much.

          This is just my opinion/speculation and that is the oil you are ingesting is giving you relief through relaxing you so you can unwind. It helps that you want to use the oil because that too is a healing act. I don’t foresee the oil actually curing you internally just giving you some mental and physical relief through unwinding. A cigarette or beer can do the same thing but maybe not as well and consistent.

          If cannabis consistently helps people sleep that would be why people who use cannabis heal not because cannabis is a cure all. The hardest thing for man to come by these days is peace of mind, it’s almost impossible and if cannabis helps people relax and cope so they can get quality sleep, the sleep will cure them because all quality immune responses are done in rim sleep, something people get very little of in these times. It’s not the GMO foods and poor exercise killing us, it is the overall lack of rim sleep that is killing our species.

          Best wishes Glastonbury, I appreciate your reply so I can further my understanding of cannabis and it’s potential use. It isn’t a miracle drug or cure all but if it can promote improved rim sleep it will lead to improved health. I know the jury is still out on the skin treatment and maybe you can keep us posted on that, it can’t be worst then getting it cut off or burned off.

          • Glastonbury

            Hi David, I had, for example, very sore “crusties” on the backs of both hands.(To get my keys out of my pocket I used to hold the pocket open with the fingers of the other hand first). The worst one (right hand) has gone completely. No scar, lumps or pain. The left hand does have a very slight lump that is a fraction (approx 1/10th) of the original, so I shall be hitting that again sometime soon along with other areas that suffered from sailing unprotected in the tropics for years. We live and learn. I hope.

            Thanks Glastonbury. I do believe cannabis oil and even oregano oil will be hard on anything living that it touches, fungus in this situation. You might try mixing a little of the cannabis oil with olive oil for your long term application so as to prevent any blisters but to keep the product on the site without discomfort long term.

    I don’t mean to be picky here, Arlun, but none of these 4 studies actually “proves” that THC “cures” cancer. The results of each study clearly are encouraging; but, at best, they only provide a basis for additional studies. Indeed, were you to have spoken with any of the authors of these papers, I’m quite sure that they would have told you the same thing (I’m a retired biomedical researcher, myself, by the way).

    Many of us in the field are sensitive to the fact that enthusiastic journalists can easily over-interpret our findings, and often do, for the sake of writing a piece that will attract readers. Three of the 4 studies that you cited evaluated THC either in animals or isolated tumor cells, not in human patients. While the results, as I said above, were encouraging, they are a far cry from actually putting THC to use in human cancer patients.The one study that did involve human cancer patients was, in fact, a Phase 1 clinical trial. A Phase 1 trial (there are 4 Phases of clinical testing, by the way, that determine if and when a given new medicine goes into general use) primarily asks if the new medicine is safe, and asks about efficacy against disease only secondarily. Moreover, a Phase 1 trial usually involves only a very small number of subjects (in this case 12). It’s not until Phases 2 or 3 that the trials actually ask about clinical efficacy of a drug, and then in many, many more patients. The authors of this trial specifically said that while this study showed that THC seems to be safe in cancer patients, it will take tests in many more patients before anyone would be able to call THC a “cure” for cancer.

    • The studies show that they inhibit tumour growth. They show that cannabinoids possess anti tumour properties. They also showed a dramatic drop in the viability of glioma cells…. The studies demonstrated very significant antitumor activity.

      For me, a long with the number of people who have had success with it makes me feel valid with my article title…I think reversing, shrinking and preventing brain tumours is indeed treating and curing cancer.

      I don’t think I am over interpreting their findings. I am simply presenting them…if you click on the sources you will see the words I took in my description of the studies match up quite well…in the “brain cancer” section.

      The above section and below section do not really over interpret or mention the specific studies…

      This piece was not meant to attract readers, it was to help people with cancer, and to help those who know others with cancer. It has a high success rate! I do not think the results are a “far cry” at all from actually putting THC to use in human cancer patients!

      I am aware what the authors said at the end, that it will take tests in many more patients before anyone would be able to call it a cure. I think it’s important to note that these studies have been conducted for a number of years! There are dozens upon dozens, maybe even hundreds and yes there have been no increase in human tests. Why do you think that is? It’s because it works, and is a large threat to the entire cancer/health/pharmaceutical industry.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.
