Below is a video of Dr. Christina Sanchez, a molecular biologist at Compultense University in Madrid, Spain, clearly explaining how THC (the main psychoactive constitute of the cannabis plant) completely kills cancer cells.

Not long ago, we published an article examining a case study recently published where doctors used cannabis to treat Leukemia, you can read more about that here. To read more articles and view studies about how cannabis is an effective treatment and cure for cancer, click here.

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 role in many processes within the body that help to create a healthy environment. I think it’s also important to note that cannabis has been shown to treat cancer without any psychoactive effects.

Cannabinoids have been proven to reduce cancer cells as they have a great impact on the rebuilding of the immune system. Although 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. Contrary to popular  belief, smoking cannabis does not assist a great deal 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, the cannabinoids.

The world has come a long way with regards to accepting this plant as a medicine rather than a harmful substance. It’s a plant that could benefit the planet in more ways than one. Cannabis is not something offered in the same regard as chemotherapy, but more people are becoming aware if it, which is why it’s so important to continue to spread information like this. Nobody can really deny the tremendous healing power of this plant.


Having Trouble With Meditation?

    Dose anyone know if it can kill the early stages of pre-
    cancer?

    • oldmsrebel

      Heard it does great.
      also may check Dr Robert Morse site .
      know of people who successfully used him.

      • Dale Ruff

        No one can answer that because there is no research to base an opinion. People will gladly tell you what you wish to hear, what they wish to be true, but the truth is, the studies are lacking to know.

        Here is my hunch and the reason for it> I think natural remedies are most effective in early stages when the issue is building up the body’s natural defenses. Later on, more aggressive traditional medicine may be necessary, but in early stages, there is a good chance that a natural treatment such as cannabis will be effective.

        That view is based only on assumptions, however, which may be valid, but we just don’t have enough information to come to anything but guesses and hunches. However, another thing about natural treatments is that they almost always can do no harm, but it is not risky to try, in most cases.

        Good luck from a cancer survivor (cannabis user for 50 years; had to have surgery….100% effective),

    • I would say yes, give it a try…. was told had a spot on my lung 1 yr ago, said lets wait see, used CBD hemp oil for 11 months next check up no spot. It certainly can’t hurt you and “hemp” oil is legal in all 50 states. I take issue with the title of this article THC is not apart of the CBD oil, which contains the cannabinoids that are used in treating cancer.

      • I tend to trust the molecular biologists when it comes to molecular biology. Not only did this biologist find that THC kills cancer cells, but so have many other studies.
        “WEDNESDAY, April 1 (HealthDay News) — New research out of Spain suggests that THC — the active ingredient in marijuana — appears to prompt the death of brain cancer cells.

        The finding is based on work with mice designed to carry human cancer tumors, as well as from an analysis of THC’s impact on tumor cells extracted from two patients coping with a highly aggressive form of brain cancer.

        Explaining that the introduction of THC into the brain triggers a cellular self-digestion process known as “autophagy,” study co-author Guillermo Velasco said his team has isolated the specific pathway by which this process unfolds, and noted that it appears “to kill cancer cells, while it does not affect normal cells.”

        Velasco is with the department of biochemistry and molecular biology in the School of Biology at Complutense University in Madrid. The findings were published in the April issue of The Journal of Clinical Investigation.”

        This link reports on several studies which found cannabis to kill cancer cells: http://sciencenordic.com/cannabis-can-kill-cancer-cells-and-curb-ms

        I am happy your treatment worked, but it is a scientific fact that THC kills cancer cells.

      • Mark Hill

        Hello to everyone
        My name is Mark and I’m a cancer survivor and in my opinion its due to cannabis oil.
        On 15/08/2014 I was diagnosed with liver cancer and cirrhosis due to Hep C ( result of a misspent youth) and was told I did’nt have a good prognosis, couple of years maybe.
        I had a 6cm tumour which couldn’t be resected and a tumor marker reading of 1800, normal is around 7 and was told no chance of a transplant any time soon.
        On 2/10/2014 I began taking cannabis oil twice per day, each dose was about the size of a rice grain and on 13/10/2014 I presented for my first TACE treatment and the radiologist couldn’t perform the procedure as he couldn’t find any tumor to administer the chemo into, both he and all the staff at the hospital, one Australia’s leading liver clinics, were completely gobsmacked as is my liver specialist who has only seen this twice in her long career but those people had one very small tumor.
        So I was sent home and had another scan and blood test on 19/11/2014, tumor marker was 7 and no sign of any tumor or cirrhosis.
        I have to say I have not told any of my doctors about the oil hence their completely astounded attitude and when I have quizzed them about their opinion of alternative treatments the attitude is decidedly dismissive, mums the word for now!!
        I am scheduled for a check up scan and bloods on 23/02/2015 and will continue with the oil at least until then.
        So all in all an amazing experience and I will wait for the next exciting episode

    If you are going to eat cannabis then you need to cook it. In its raw form cannabis is mostly cannabinoid acids like THCA which need heat to convert to THC. So while eating cannabis is the best way to get enough cannabinoids into your body those cannabinoids are only present in cannabis after decarboxylation (converting THCA to THC, CBDA to CBD etc.)

    • Herminigildo C. Apuya

      MattMaff, Some 50 years later this extraction and freeze drying technique was rediscovered by Norwegian scientist, Doctor Bjodne Eskeland that partially incubated,fertilized hen eggs, contained a special combination of amino acids peptides and protein fractions that could provide an array of health benefits when consumed by humans, In theory, this partially incubated 9 days-old fertilized eggs, contain all the nutrients to start a new life.this includes Vitamins, Minerals and proteins, as well as important defense factors, hormones and other biologically active components.. Also, to prevent the potentcy of herbs it must not be under high temperature

    • Arik

      actually juicing raw cannabis is one of the best ways to take it medicinally, cannabinoids have medicinal value before losing the water molecule, THCA however is not psycho active, drying cannabis is necessary to get the psycho active effects of THC, which many medical cannabis patients are trying to avoid

      • MattMatt

        THCA is not psychoactive, as you say, and does have medicinal value BUT THCA cannot activate the Cb1 and Cb2 receptors, which is how THC kills cancer cells. THC has been shown to kill many types of cancer, THCA has not. So while THCA does have its own medicinal value, including some possible anti cancer properties, it is only the activated/decarboxylated THC that is actually proven to kill cancer

        • Mike T

          A number of studies have shown that CBD kills cancer cells and have identified the pathways by which cancer cell death occurs. CBD is the cannabinoid I have usually seen cited as having promise for cancer treatment, and it is interesting to hear that THC has promise also. Matt, you probably know whether decarboxilation is needed to activate CBD and can speak to that. I just wanted to point out the small correction.

All the compounds showed “potent antibacterial activity.” Cannabinoids were “exceptional at halting the spread of MRSA.”
    A second study in 2008 reported non-cannabinoid constituents in the plant also possess antibacterial properties against MRSA and malaria.

    • Daniel, I have been invested in medical marijuana stocks for years. I have survived cancer of the prostate. I not only am familiar with the research but have personally used cannabis for my cancer, as well as many other compounds. None worked, so I had my prostate removed.

      I am speaking from knowledge and experience. I t ihave used marijuana for 45 years; if it would prevent cancer, I would never have got it. In vivo in a human body is far different from in vitro or used directly as a lotion.

      Something ingested or smoked does not necessarily get to the cancer cells in internal organs. I am invested in corporations working on these issues, and if they ever succeed, their value will jump from a few pennies to hundreds of dollars per stock.

      We all hope for that day, but is it cruel to tell people, from having read a few articles, that that day has arrived.
      I have been cancer free now for 7 years.

      • Herminigildo C. Apuya

        ruffsoft, a have a case of prostate cancer subject for operation but due to low resistance of the patient operation was off, but i try 22 medicinal herbs food supplements and for two weeks with higher dosage the prostate was gone. pls check Dr. Bjodne Eskeland 1929 ,a scientist who pioneer in treatment of cancer by a super functional food supplements with Fibroblast Growth Factor 2 ( FGF 2)

        • Denise Millet

          Please give a link with more info. A friend of mine has early signs of prostate cancer. I want to help him!

        • i TOOK medicinal herbs and foods, etc for 1 yr and my prostate psa only got worse. It’s hard to believe that your cancer was gone in two weeks….be sure to be retested. If it worked as you say, good for you and may others follow your lead. What was your psa score before treatment? Mine was about 12.

          Since having my prostate removed, no cancer at all for 6-7 yrs.

        • The medicinal herbs, etc didn’t work for my prostate cancer; My diet for 40 years has been anti-cancer and I tried herbs, and anti-cancer foods, etc for one year and my cancer only got worse, so I had it removed. Since then, zero cancer. I am a long term vegan and have used cannabis (smoke) for decades. I tried everything in the natural field but it just didn’t work for me. This is why ancecdotal incidences are not evidence.

          • Mike T

            I agree with ruffsoft, there are no miracle cures out there currently, so look carefully into all of your options. I just completed surgery and 11 cycles of chemo for stomach cancer (great fun…), and am continuing targeted treatment with Herceptin. I have been using cannabis to deal with chemo side effects and am very thankful for it. A balanced CBD/THC content in edible hard candy or chocolate seems to work best for me. All that said, I recognize course of treatment and how far to go is a very personal decision. Some chose to forego chemo because, well, its poison. Now that I am recovering, I am re-examining diet, supplements, etc. to get healthy again. Its my hope that in the coming years cannabis and other alternative treatments will get the same level of research as other drugs.

      • Marlene Moriarty

        Hi my name is Marlene. I now stay in Swaziland. I make different fruit juices with hemp. I am no doctor but an ex financial accountant. I no longer take medication for my epilepsy by drinking this juice. I haven’t had a seizure in four months and have been drinking this juice since April this year. I no longer suffer the terrible side affects of medication and have a better quality of life.
