Very First Human Trials Using Cannabis To Treat Brain Cancer Under Way

cellsThe picture to your left is showing immunofluorescence of the human glioma cell line. (View more pictures here)

A European based pharmaceutical company called GW Pharmaceuticals is set to commence its first phase of clinical trials for the treatment of Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). It’s a bio-pharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing novel therapeutics from its proprietary cannabinoid product platform.

According to the New England Journal of Medicine, GBM accounts for approximately 50% of the 22,500 new cases of brain cancer diagnosed in the United States alone each year.(1) Treatment with regards to brain cancer are very limited which makes the study of cannabis and its effect on brain tumors crucial.

It’s about time, isn’t it? For several years now, pre-clinical research conducted by multiple scientists and universities all over the world have demonstrated that cannabinoids inhibit the viability of glioma cells both in vitro and in vivo. This happens through the process of apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Cannabis has successfully demonstrated tumor growth-inhibiting action and an improvement in the therapeutic efficacy of temozolomide, a standard treatment for glioma. GW pharmaceuticals have also followed this research and also conduct it themselves. As a result they’ve shown tumor response to be positively associated with tissue levels of cannabinoids.

We are very excited about moving this compound into further human study and the prospects of cannabinoids as new anti-cancer treatments. This is GW’s first clinical study of cannabinoids as a potential treatment to inhibit tumor growth. We believe this clinical program demonstrates the flexibility and broad application of GW’s cannabinoids platform to treat significant, unmet therapeutic needs. – Dr Steven Wright, Director of Research and Development at GW

The study will involve 20 patients, it will be a two-part study with an open-label phase to assess safety and tolerability of GW cannabinoids in combination with temozolomide, and a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled phase with patients randomized to active or placebo.

The study objective is to assess the tolerability, safety, and pharmacodynamics of a mixture of two principal cannabinoids, THC and CBD in a 1:1 allocation ration, in combination with temozolomide in patients with recurrent GBM.

Unfortunately the study won’t be entirely cannabis, as mentioned earlier. It will in combination with temozolomide, an oral chemotherapy drug. Who knows what effect this may have with regards to using cannabis as treatment, but we will find out. Prior studies indicate that it (cannabis) does nothing but help.

Earlier I published an article outlining four medical studies that prove cannabis can be an effective treatment, and even cure for brain cancer. Here (below) they are again just in-case you missed it. It’s potential benefits are not limited to brain cancer, but all kinds of cancer that suggest a massive amount of human clinical trials should begin. Take a look at the top 20 medical studies that prove cannabis can cure cancer.

In my opinion, many human trials have already been conducted outside of the medical field. A large number of people have used cannabis to treat their cancer, and have been successful in doing so. It’s very hard to trust pharmaceutical companies these days. Home grown GMO and pesticide free cannabis would be ideal, and don’t forget that the best method of ingestion is eating it as opposed to smoking it.

Hopefully this article sparks you to further your research on the healing properties of this plant if you’re interested. It’s a gift from nature and should not be taken lightly when it comes to its medicinal properties. It seems nature has a cure for everything, but our medicine has become an industry. I am a big believer that everything has a cure.

 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.

    “Unfortunately the study won’t be entirely cannabis” why “unfortunately”? Combinations of cannabinoids with temozolomide have been shown to produce strong anti-cancer action in animal studies. See http://www.medicinalgenomics.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Towards-the-use-of-cannabinoids-as-anti-tumor-agents1.pdf . The ‘Cannabis is the one true drug’ ideology is not helpful.

  4. The cause of brain cancer are faulty bio-computers which were not repaired for many years.

    You must restore the different bio-computers according to my invention and then in final phase you can use cannabis, externally and internally The bio-computers must first restore the structures.
    Not the scientist holds the solution but the bio-computers.A scientist can never discover the secrets of the bio-computers or have a look what happens.
    my site http://www.logicalwayhealing.com
    A logical solution and without side effects. You will have already a response within 3 weeks. The recovery is going slowly but each week there is progress. Another solution does not exist but the nature makes no exceptions.
    Let do first the diagnosis , in order to have a complete health condition.(affected systems and organs), you just have to answer 50 questions, your behavior pattern reflects the inner condition and must confirm the faulty bio-computers.

    What a ridiculous article. Combining cannabinoid therapy (synthetic proprietary in this case) WITH chemo drugs is an oxymoron. YOU DO NOT NEED CHEMO OR RAD ANYMORE ON THIS PLANET TO CURE ANY DIS-EASE, PERIOD! When you are using cannabinoids, via all natural cannabis oil, not some synthetic bs from a big pharma company, you can kill any cancer in your body. Period. To combine it with chemo is absolutely moronic and only shows they won’t let go of the cash hog that is the death industry of cancer.

    • kathy that was harsh. So emotional. I bet you could do wonders if you got on the right track so I am going to give you a hand so you can put your passion to good use.

      There is a reason why some people are healed or cured from using “all natural cannabis oil” and some are not. The oil is 100% placebo. I’m sure that upsets you some to hear that but only because you might have more respect for cannabis oil then you do for the human immune system. Cannabis, like all placebo’s have the potential to help a person rationalize an immune response and if they do succeed in generating a proper immune response a cure is possible, unfortunately today cures are rare usually the best one can expect is short term relief.

      Sure the internet is full of people claiming to be cured by cannabis and that is why the medical industry is trying cannabis to treat brain cancer. The medical industry KNOWS there is not a snowballs chance in hell that cannabis will treat brain cancer but they also know that it doesn’t matter because there will be endless funding for the research and the trials and they know that people are screaming “USE CANNABIS, it will cure everything”.

      For the industry of medicine it doesn’t get any better than the trials mentioned here in this article. Anytime you can give the people what they want without any risk to the industry, its a WIN WIN WIN for the industry and the same old loss for every consumer diagnosed with cancer.

      Kathy, your immune system is fully capable of curing any disease known to man but cannabis can’t cure anything. If you use cannabis to cure something it is your BELIEF/intent that stimulates the immune process. Even if you sneak cannabis into a sick person’s diet without them knowing, you as a human (compatible with the other person) can instigate an immune response in the other person. That is how practitioners can sometimes become a key to a placebo working. You can personally effect another person’s immune system because immune systems work on electrochemical signals and any signal you send can be experience and witnessed by anyone near you.

      Isn’t the human immune system freaking awesome? It can cure anything and we can pretend it is a product like a sugar pill or cannabis oil and sell the products for top dollar. Botta-bing, botta-boom, PROFIT!

      Cannabis has never cured anything but as a placebo it sure feels nice while the recipient kicks their immune system into the mix . I will take cannabis over a sugar pill any day of the week.

        Some truth but, not the whole truth. There is some merit to the placebo effect, however, I’ve met several who completely disbelieved and were very anti cannabis yet were ‘cured’ despite that. Now believers because the proof is in the pudding.
        Many ways to treat cancer. Cannabis oil is but one. There is actually a growing body of research supporting this in addition to loads of personal testimony.

          Cannabis serves two purposes, a really great placebo and a really great drug for making a person relax in order to maintain some sense of peace of mind.

          Cannabis does not cure disease it simply allows a person to relax and a relaxed person can generate better immune control.

        • Butch asked: “If its a placebo please explain the positive in vitro and in vivo results. Its hard to get placebo effects from a petri dish.”

          What’s to explain other than the fact that everything that goes on in a petri dish is manufactured opinion otherwise known as hypotheses. The data that leads you to believe the positive in vitro and in vivo results is useful data comes from a most dubious source a source that is a COMPLETE and UTTER failure at correcting, preventing or curing anything. What people think they are observing in a petri dish may not be what they are truly observing.

          Quite frankly there is no educational system or institution today that a person could attend that would prepare them to understand what is going on in a petri dish.

          Butch, you would have to take a very intelligent 15 year old out of school and do a brain wash and wash all the preexisting science data from them removing every single current medical opinion or research opinion and then give them all the technology and funding to start from scratch. Words like virus, bacterium, cancer and all that promotional garbage would have to be removed. No existing opinion will ever be useful in actual prevention, cures or corrections. Give that kid the chance to examine sick people, cut up dead people and in a few years that child would be able to fix, cure or prevent just about anything. That’s how bad and how far off mainstream science and medicine is. That’s why you have no idea what and immune system is and what it can do for you. Don’t take that as an insult, it wasn’t meant for that, it was meant to express how little concern there is for you and your ability to be immune to all diseases as your body is designed to be.

          Every bit of data that is considered a discovery is based off of false pretenses which is why the petri dish test you mention will never make a significant difference outside of placebo.

          Cheers.

        “the human immune system can cure anything and prevent anything, that’s what an immune system is for”
        That is correct, but the immune system is working perfectly if the bio-computers are working perfectly. And 95 % has a faulty bio-computer, I discovered how to restore.
        See http://www.logicalwayhealing.com (solution for free) If your bio-computer is restored than you can restore the affected organs and systems(such as immune system,…)and finaly cannabis can do his job and be helpful by curing or preventing cancer. How our biological system does it, nobody will know it, but that is not important, be healthy is important.

        Reply
        • Antoon, I have a very good understanding of why people get sick and why they do not. My explanation is not nearly so mainstream as yours or the one in that link. But you are correct, the body can and does fall into a state that prevents it from being immune to disease, the state can be adjusted instantly but to promote such work one need be completely consistent at it. Otherwise you are dealing with nothing more than placebo. Also the state that takes the body away from it’s immune responsibility is 100% natural and necessary so that state is not a malfunction. If a person is hitting the gym hard their body will flip a switch and convert all energy to the physical work out and once the work out is over the energy in a healthy person will be transferred back to the immune system. Stress and fear does cause the body to redirect energy so it will put the immune system on the back burner.

          Yes the body does work on a system of signals, you can’t drive a car without sending and receiving signals and you cannot generate immunity without sending and receiving signals. Like driving a care, we have the ability to control our immune signals. I wish the site you linked to was involved in the ugly truth of immunity instead of involved in telling people what they want to hear. I hope your link isn’t selling the same old promise without results. Sites like that are the worst thing to ever happen to humanity.

          I come here and say we can be immune to disease and then you link to a site that claims the same thing but I sure hope it’s an honorable site and not just another scam. If they have reasonable knowledge of the immune system it is safe to assume they can correct a person’s allergies in as little as a week or two. Can you confirm that? Can they cure a child or asthma using the human immune system? Can you back the site up?

          Wow, I’m almost certain you are truly here to support chemo and radiation by supporting cannabis. It’s the oldest trick in the pharmaceutical book. Get people to go out and pronounce this or that a MIRACLE CURE when it is nothing at all without INTENT behind it. Cannabis and silver is nothing without intent behind it.

          You called me an idiot because you know many people will respond to that snide comment in the manner you wish them to, “EMOTIONALLY” charged instead of logically charged.

          Everything can and usually is a placebo ESPECIALLY cannabis. To suggest otherwise truly shows ignorance on the subject, even Chemo and Radiation can be placebo if the patient believes it will work.

          Slvrizgold, I don’t think you are here to help people, I think you are here to sabotage people’s awareness to the truth. I think you want people to continue to respect gimmick products like cannabis or chemo and to continue to forsake their own immune system, the ONE and only means of curing any disease especially the science fictionally fraudulent disease known as “cancer”. Let me clarify, the disease known as “cancer” despite the fact that people suffer and die when diagnosed is indeed 100% fraudulent pseudoscience so to say cannabis can cure something that has no meaning is truly absurd.

          Now if someone where to say that cannabis cures the signs and symptoms associated with the medical industries cash cow fictional disease known as “cancer” then that person could be judged as credible but I WOULD counter and say “how do you know it is not the immune system curing people of the disease fictionally known as “cancer” and the room would once again go silent except for those who know that the immune system is designed to cure all disease and wish it not to be known, those people would call me obtuse and ignorant because they want the masses to put their faith in products scientifically proven to fail when a placebo effect does not engage.

          Cannabis is not threat to the industry of cancer, not even in the least. If it were a threat all CNN and Fox have to do is come out and state that it “turns out cannabis is a placebo” and after that cannabis will never cure another person again because if a person doesn’t believe in it it will not work.

          Go ahead and attack me, but when you do, you are saying that the human immune system can’t cure the disease known as “cancer” BECAUSE that is my POINT here, the human immune system can cure the fraudulent disease known as “cancer” and is the common denominator in every single supposedly natural cure.

          • David, you are not correct. Cancer is not a disease its a genetic mutation of a normal cell, your immune response cannot cure you from yourself, thats the problem with cancer, its your own cells, your body makes them. A cancer cell is exactly like a normal cell with the exception that it has lost its ability to self destruct when instructed to do so, the cell travels your body and like all cells multiplies, each variation of that cell also lacks the ability to kill itself, it is at this point that you have what is clinically called cancer.
            Different cancers (type of malfunctioned cell) appear in different places because they were created in different areas of the body, they type of cancer is dependant on where the cell ends up stopping and multiplying.
            In addition to this, do you realise that your commentary may actually kill people, if anyone actually took you seriously there is a strong chance that they could die. I think that you should take some cognisance of your actions and first prove your concept in clinical or other trials prior to potentially misleading the public.

You clearly have no concept of what a hypothesis is and I doubt you care to know.

      Hi Kathy. I already mentioned that within the article..:) I just didn’t use those words, but I made note to the fact that the two drugs are combined, and possible human trials should be done without the chemo drugs. I don’t know…I’m just presenting the information that’s out there.

      • Charles Waller

        Arjun, Kathy is mistaken in referring to synthetics regarding this trial. GW Pharma uses CO2 extracted whole plant extract. I’m no fan of Sativex because they use alcohol tincture and add propylene glycol, but the fact remains the cannabinoid content is straight from the plant. Their new product Epidiolex is in suspension, but I have not seen information regarding whether it is seed oil, another vegetable oil or glycerin, etc. Sativex is 1:1 THC:CBD, while Epidiolex is claimed to be 0% THC, which I believe will make it less effective than the extract oils used by Jayden David, Charlotte Figi and other as an anticonvulsant. I think the headline should clarify this is the first FDA approved human trial, as Dr. Guzman and others have already run human trials. The good news about GW Pharma is they are researching lesser known cannabinoids and hybridizing cultivars with elevated levels of those lesser known cannabinoids.

    • Get your son off of antiperspirants and deodorants, use nothing. Make him drink clean pure water, enough that his urine stays clear and clean (it will always be ugly in the morning after sleeping because that is when the mass of the tumor will be absorbed and passed.) Make absolutely certain he sleeps as much as possible. A person will not and cannot sleep unless they need it. He needs it, desperately.

      Your son has something known as an immune system, various components of the body designed to keep him healthy and disease free and though the current natural and western medicine industries ignore it in favor of prescribing drugs like chemo, cannabis and using gimmick herbs and supplements. All your son needs is to use the system medicines ignore. No drug will cure him, not chemo, not cannabis- nothing. Cannabis might make him sleep better and give him some calm which can help but it will not treat or cure his condition. It can only relax him and take stress off of his natural immune system. That is how cannabis helps.

      Do this now and when he can go a few days without smelling like a dead cat take him back in for the MRI or whatever they use to judge the size of the tumor and you will likely find NO tumor at all. I personally witnessed this work with 15 year old high school football star who had the tumor removed TWICE and right before I started working with him after the second surgery it was back to half it’s full size again and growing and they were preparing to do a third surgery. We stuck him in the basement for two weeks and let him sweat it our through his armpits while he drank water, ate low carbs and slept like a bear. I assure you the smell will end and he will be either completely better or darn close to it.

      These are things you and he can do. To do anything more for him you will need help from someone who knows the truth about your son’s condition and that isn’t any doctor or commercial scientist.

      Best wishes.

        David, Sweetie, as an RN, I have had EXTENSIVE experience in medical cases and cures as well as direct involvement and observation of demise and destruction. While you are PARTIALLY correct, you are also partially wrong. Your supposition that no medicine can help (I am also an herbalist, who doesn’t use cannabis, but not because I disbelieve in it) because you believe that the immune system is perfect, therefore fully functional at all times and it never needs help. It is a bit like saying “You have a car. Keep it clean and it will take you anywhere. You are forgetting the Krebs Cycle, son, in the human body, and about a million other things. Your car needs fuel to burn in order for it to move you anywhere, regardless of how clean it is. Yet, if you go and pump ethanol into your car, while it is touted as perfectly clean, etc, you are going to do slow damage to said car. And, if you use an ethanol treatment in the tank, the fuel will not hurt the car any longer. Now, I am referring to not just food and water in the body, or gasoline or diesel in the vehicle… but also, in the vehicle, ethanol treatment, and oil, and O2, antifreeze, etc. Like a car, the human body is a SYSTEM. And different things affect the system differently. And it is no sacrelige to put something other than just gasoline in a car. It also needs other things to function properly. Yes, the human needs to keep their immune system intact. But your oversimplification is dangerous, son. What if some new mother who has a baby with some scary disease believed you because she WANTED to believe you, then did nothing to help her child but give the infant food and water, and rest, and it died. And you are responsible for that negligent homicide because you THINK you know all there is to know about the human body. You do not. I rather doubt that you even understand the analogy of the body being not unlike a vehicle. I merely respond to your misunderstanding not to educate you, since its unlikely you can change your mind, but to protect others from buying your wares you are peddling here. There is FAR more to survival, when ill, than food, water, and sleep. The immune system can indeed become terribly ill. Even with good food, clean water, and adequate rest. Having said all I need to on that matter, let me add that chemo is deadly. Avoid it. Some peopel have survived chemo. More have died from it.

        Reply
        • Bumpkin, you have misunderstood my claims and points, that’s to be expected what I know contradicts what everyone else knows so it is very difficult to wrap one’s head around my claims and points.

          Immune systems today are designed to give people immunity but ignorance is in the way of them being perfect.

          Behind every herb treatment and behind 99% of all drug treatments that appear to work is a human immune system. Drugs can be effective at relieving suffering which can allow an immune system to engage. That is when cures come about through medicine. It isn’t the drug or herb curing anyone, just the immune system.

          I have also spent my share of time in ERs and on the streets scooping up the sick and dying. I gave that all up when I realized how “natural” medicine once worked. When I learned the truth about herbs and other “natural” medicine I focused my attention on that and I learned how to use the immune system as it is intended to be used. As such I discovered knowledge that conflicts with the economy and society completely because immunity is the greatest threat to both. Both the economy and society rely on suffering and early death to sustain. That’s why people hate my work.

You should of stayed away from me because I live to expose myths and exposing the fraud of your comment is very easy and though you despise my information you cannot dispute it so you have to call me ignorant.

      Fact ONE, everyone who has ever experience relief while using cannabis has an immune system that is full capable of curing them.

      Fact TWO, immunity is boosted by peace of mind and quality rest and cannabis as well as other products can allow for peace of mind and improved immunity.

      Fact THREE, cannabis cannot cure disease in any extracted form. That’s what the immune system is for.

      Fact FOUR, Tim has no idea what a lymphatic system is for or what the human immune system is capable of, his agenda it to promote products and the belief that without man’s manufactured processed products man cannot be healthy or heal. Tim is against human immunity without cannabis extract.

      Tim, try to dispute those facts. Try to convince people that they don’t have an immune system that can heal and cure cancer while totally relaxed on weed.

      People do not need products or exotic foods to remain healthy or to cure disease they simply need common sense, wisdom and a little motivation. Peace of mind, high quality and quantity of sleep and good water is all anyone needs to heal from cancer, nothing more. Smoke a little weed while not using antiperspirants and deodorants while drinking plenty of clean water and sleeping like a baby is a reasonable recipe for successful healing. If you can obtain peace of mind without the weed the process will speed up because weed requires the lymphatic system to engage in processing the chemicals when it could otherwise be processing the disease causing pathogens.

      Cheers everyone and live long, strong and with common sense and wisdom, don’t be a mindless consumer, it will be the death of you.

      • You state “facts” without leaving sources or anything at all that proves you’re right.
        Leaving everyone, including me, to believe that you’re just full of shit.

        Here’s a US goverment database which is for US National Library of Medicine & National Institutes of Health.

        http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24373545

        This article is on colon cancer and the effects that Cannabis has on it,
        It’s just one of hundreds of positive studies made on Medicinal Cannabis Cancer Treatment.

        Now, you can go ahead and attempt to counter this any way you want,
        You wont be successful, because this is the truth, but I urge you to continue.

        Because I’d love to see you make a fool out of yourself.

          Benjamin, there isn’t a source out there that is worthy of any attention, if there were there would be no colon “cancer” to treat with cannabis.

          Only a fool relies on sources who cannot prevent or cure consistently. The sources you rely on are holding carrots in your face because they need you to stick with modern mindless consuming behavior. They need you to keep your hands out for products. They need you to have faith that they want to help you be healthy though they constantly fail every time. I live in a state surrounded by states who have legalized pot, hippie states. It is not legal here in Idaho.

          The bottom line is very simple, if cannabis was the answer to eliminate cancer or cure cancer there would be no studies saying it is effective. The studies written about the merits of cannabis are written because today’s industry of medicine knows that “cannabis” is just a carrot to keep you involved with their madness. It keeps you engaged in the game. It keeps you hoping instead of taking action.

          You want to take and use ‘cannabis’ because you want it to be the ticket to better health. You want it to work. If it helps, it is simply because it relaxes a person and gives them better peace of mind so their immune system can engage and that is fine.

          As for your studies and links, I don’t subscribe to sources who cannot cure allergies, asthma, herpes, diabetes, arthritis, IBS, gout or any of the other so called incurable diseases that are easily cured. I have better sense than that. I use only expert sources, like myself. I’m immune to colon cancer and all cancers so I am a valid source. The government is not a valid source, neither is Duke, Berkeley or Princeton. It’s just common sense but you have to open to common sense to see it.

  10. My wife & I lost our 30 year old daughter to a childhood brain tumor which the doctors went in to debulk and they got a mere fraction of it and what was a benign tumor began to behave aggressively… As a result of the cock-ups, she ended up with VP SHUNTS which were not managed properly and when they did attend to them it was too late… All the while, feeding her on CANNABIS OIL during the course of her illness meant that the tumor did not affect her in anyway – neither headaches, seizures or anything!!! She travelled for 10 hours during one of the toughest times in her journey from Vancouver Int’l Airport to London Heathrow after ingesting about a gram & half of oil before her flight and did not sleep a wink for 10 hours.The problem was her SHUNTS which eventually took her out!!! So for all the JACKASSES* who want to place their “FAITH” in medical science (especially DOCTORS) – good luck to ’em!!! I believe my healthcare is my business and the rite to self-medicate is PERSONAL & SACROSANCT!!!

    my 8 month old baby has a astrocytoma glioma and is currently on weekly treatments of chemotherapy (vincristine and carboplatin) for about 4 weeks now. She is now having complications due to chemo including neutropenia, GI issues. We are interested in CBD therapy but live in a state where it is not an option. I would really appreciate any helpful info or suggestions. Thank you.

    I was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in October 2013. In December my doctor was pressuring me to get one of my lung nodules removed and begin chemotherapy as soon as possible. I wanted to wait it out just a little bit longer, I guess my intuition was telling me something. While browsing online I stumbled upon a website:www.phoenixtears.ca and was very interested. It seemed unreal, It was very hard to believe but I bought his book and read it cover to cover. Wow, that is all I could say. The things I read flipped my understanding of nutrition and cancer upside down. And my doctor never told me any of these things.I ordered for his oil on:ricksimpsoncancercure@outlook.com and was delivered to me within 48 hours, I started the protocol the same day after finishing the book. A few days later I woke up and I had no pain in my side, that was interesting. Two days later I could walk outside for a good half an hour and not get fatigued. My health was improving so fast I actually couldn’t believe it. A week later I sent my HCG urine test in and it went down by 5 points!! I had to get these results tested with my doctor just to be sure. I scheduled an appointment, did my scans, and guess what. Two of my tumors had disappeared, and the third one was half the size, this is in three weeks after starting the protocol. One month later my doctor officially pronounced me cancer free. I owe my life to you RICK SIMPSON and I thank you dearly. I will pass this information to everyone I know and I hope all those suffering from cancer know that it’s not the end, there is a way!

    • As states legalize pot the it will be critical they get people to use it. Plenty of people will use it recreational but that’s not enough to line all the pockets planning on getting filthy rich off of legalized pot.

      There are going to be all kinds of creeps coming out of the woodwork trying to sell cannabis as a cure all and no one will stop them because the business is more important than the facts.

      Cannabis or cannabis oil does not cure any thing. The ONLY thing it can do is relax a person or help a person sleep which in turn boost immunity because peace of mind and sleep boost immunity, cannabis without peace of mind and better sleep will not boost immunity.

      Smoke pot because you are an adult and it is your right but don’t believe for one second that cannabis is a cure all or a cure anything. Those claims are not from real people, just people with a product to sell.

        David Flowers: You need to bone up on your scientific homework, Bro. The *smoking* of cannabis doesn’t cure cancer, but *ingesting* its extract oil most certainly does. Via empirical evidence, the cannabinoids in cannabis have proven to induce what’s called apoptosis (cell death) in cancer tumor cells, shrinking them into oblivion. International studies – namely in Spain and Canada – have been going on for the past few decades proving that fact via empirical evidence. WE in the US don’t hear about it because Big Pharma profits a whopping $185 billion per year on cancer alone. The US government has known since 1974 that it can cure most cancers if the correct protocol is applied; they even own a patent on it. Connect the dots, for crying out loud, and wake up.

        • “Bone up on my science”, are you kidding, I could get a degree in science and medicine from Berkley, Harvard, Oxford and Yale all in one and I wouldn’t be any more equipped to offer any “study” for the betterment of humanity than a 4 year old child. The reason being, today’s science is not science, it is marketing and PURE propaganda. If I told you to write a two paragraph paper on actual “cancer” facts you couldn’t do it, you couldn’t even copy and paste two paragraphs of facts from the American Cancer Society and the reason being is there are NO FACTS. Everything consumers believe to be fact is nothing more than hypothesis in other words profitable beliefs. Whatever you attempt to suggest is fact will prove to be nothing but a best guess.

          “Bone up on my science”, I’m the leading scientific EXPERT in the world when it comes to health, healing and disease. I’m the ONLY scientist in the world who provides factual science and data because I’m the only person stubborn enough to insist on truth. But that’s not all, I provide immunity to my clients and I maintain immunity in myself, immunity to all disease because I am BONED up on REAL science. I know how the human immune system works, I know why yours does not keep you immune to cancer or other disease, but mostly I know how to help you get your immune prowess back. However if you insist on remaining loyal to commercial scientific fantasy that proves to fail every time but makes more money through failure than any industry can make through success, be my guest. There is no science in regards to health and healing today outside of my work. https://www.facebook.com/beimmunetodisease

          There is no real science in regards to cannabis oil just a bunch of brainwashed, misinformed, pompous and corrupt idiots with top degrees in science fiction. If “cancer” is ever to be prevented or cured it will only be through the human immune system and it doesn’t take much more than a week or two. They push products because they can sell them and the science you mentioned isn’t science at all, otherwise they would already be telling you about your immune system so you wouldn’t waste all your money on cannabis oil. Bone up my friend.
          As it is, you are simply trying to trade one fraud for another. As long as you keep chasing the carrot, you will never know what it is to be disease free.

        Dear David, Your statement “Cannabis or cannabis oil does not cure any thing. The ONLY thing it can do is relax a person or help a person sleep which in turn boost immunity” is inaccurate. Studies from around the world verify the efficacy of cannabis therapeutics in not only halting the proliferation of cancer cells (stopping cancer cells from spreading to healthy cells) but also shows that cannabis induces cancer cell apoptosis (encourages programmed cell death in cancer cells) which leads to tumors shrinking. So, while you are correct in saying that it helps a person relax, sleep and assists in boosting ones immune system, that is most certainly NOT the ONLY thing that it can do!! The information Is uot there, we just need to educate ourselves and others!!

        • “Studies” show there is a new disease threatening the world called Ebola but it doesn’t make it true. The “studies” are paving the way for the most profitable disease the world has ever known. It’s a very simple business plan, those who create “studies” take a COMMON group of signs and symptoms and then link them to a virus that cannot be proven to exist or proven doesn’t exist and then use propaganda to literally scare people to an actual DEATH.

          Every day in Texas people die who have the same exact signs and symptoms as the person who supposedly diet of Ebola. It is quite possible that half the American population will test positive for Ebola if they faked signs and symptoms and demanded to be tested because the test for viruses do not detect any actual virus, they detect “indications”, “indications” that do not truly indicate any presence of any particular pathogen.

          AIDS was very profitable, but will not even compare to what Ebola will generate. AIDS was marketed to be a discriminative disease only threatening homosexuals, drug users and promiscuous people. Ebola is being marketed to threaten people of all walks of life.

          I predict when the industry of medicine and commercial science, those who create your so-called “studies” hit their predicted profit margin they will miraculously come up with a vaccination, probably saline and nothing more and sell it for $60 a pop and then they will declare the disease as NO LONGER A THREAT and the fear will abate and it will be history. The question is how many people do they destroy through fear before they consider the profits to be enough. Of course population control is also important to those who are in charge of the “studies” people remain so loyal too.

          Before anyone gets too angry about my comment here, let it be known if you get a chronic headache caused by nothing more than sinus pressure and you go to the doctor and they diagnose you with Ebola, the diagnoses will kill you not some germ or virus. Fear is far more deadly than any pathogen. “Studies” only mean profit, they mean nothing more.

        • Mike, studies do not verify anything, if they did there would be cures and preventions. Studies are nothing but marketing, made up solely of hypothesis. The people behind the studies you are so blindly loyal to simply BELIEVE cannabis is useful but, do they really BELIEVE it to be useful or are they just trying to build more appreciation for the cannabis industry? YOU WILL NEVER KNOW.

          Furthermore, there are no studies on the human immune system so you and the other cannabis lovers have no idea what the immune system can do or does.

          https://www.facebook.com/beimmunetodisease

          Sorry Mike, cannabis only brings a bit of peace of mind to some, some it doesn’t even do that.

          “Studies” mean absolutely nothing except marketing. That’s a fact.

  16. OVARIAN CANCER CURED WITH CANNABIS OIL

    My wife was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The doctor estimated how long my wife had to live, but little did we know my wife was a very strong woman. She was given 1 year to live without chemotherapy, with chemotherapy, she was given 5 years. My wife made the choice of losing her hair and feeling sick one day out of every week while taking chemotherapy. After a while my wife started to feel sick every day, i called the doctor to see if he could figure out what was happening and the doctor told her to have a CAT scan done. When she had the CAT scan done, the doctor told us that the cancer had spread to her colon and spleen. After a great deal of thinking, my wife decided to have her spleen and half of her colon removed. Finally the cancer had metastasized throughout her whole body and we were losing hope at this time nothing could be done to save her anymore. We have spent a lot of money trying to save her, one day i came across the use of cannabis oil for treatment of cancer and i saw a post on how a cancer patient was cured with cannabis oil. I urgently needed help and i contacted the email
    nationalcancerinstitute@aol.com to get the cannabis oil and i was given instructional guide on how to use the cannabis oil for ovarian cancer. As i am writing this post, my wife is free from ovarian cancer and the doctor confirmed that the cancer was cured permanently. Words can not express how happy we are now in the family.
