European Union: Three case studies that show Cannabis shrinking brain tumors

One of the hardest cancers of all to treat (typically considered impossible) is a brain pathology called glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Nothing in conventional medicine offers hope. “These tumors are usually highly malignant because the cells reproduce quickly and they are supported by a large network of blood vessels.” Between 75% (children) and 90% (adults) are dead in five years. It turns out that GBM tumors, like many others, are rife with cannabinoid (CB) receptors. Compelling evidence suggests that cancer cells littered with CB receptors respond well to full-spectrum cannabis preparations. In an interview with Dr Wai Liu, he describes the results of their groundbreaking discovery in which cannabinoids play a significant role in treating one of the most aggressive cancers in adults and children (Liu’s also in “London.1”, below).

More EU: Whole Cannabis plant more effective against brain cancer than pure THC

Marijuana kills cancer cells in proportion to its dose and duration of treatment, researchers found, and whole plant Cannabis rich in THC was more efficacious than pure, lab-grade THC alone. Moreover, pre-treating cells with THC and CBD for four hours prior to irradiation increased the cancer-killing effects of radiation. Tumors treated this way in mouse models for glioma showed “dramatic” results, with pot-treated tumors shrinking to nearly one-tenth the size of tumors in the control group. “Taken together, our data highlight the possibility that these cannabinoids can prime glioma cells to respond better to ionizing radiation, and suggest a potential clinical benefit for glioma patients by using these two treatment modalities.

Dr. Christina Sanchez Explains How Cannabis Kills Cancer Cells

Madrid, Spain: Molecular Biologist Explains How Cannabis Kills Cancer Cells

Dr. Christina Sanchez, at the Complutense University of Madrid, explains how Cannabis kills cancer. “One of the advantages of cannabinoids, or cannabinoid-based medicines, would be that they target specifically, tumor cells. They don’t have any toxic effect on normal, non-tumoral cells. This is an advantage with respect to standard chemotherapy, that targets basically everything.” Sanchez further reveals that the cancer-killing effect of THC is potentiated by the presence of CBD, or cannabidiol, a potent antioxidant. “I cannot understand why in the states Cannabis is under Schedule I, because it is pretty obvious not only from our work but from work from many other researchers that the plant has very wide therapeutic potential.”

London: Experts show Cannabis with radiation is the most effective for brain cancer

Research performed in 2014 was the first to show a drastic effect when combining THC and CBD with irradiation. Tumors growing in the brains of mice were drastically slowed down when THC/CBD was used with irradiation. “The results are extremely exciting. The tumors were treated in a variety of ways, either with no treatment, the cannabinoids alone, and irradiation alone or with both the cannabinoids and irradiation at the same time. Those treated with both irradiation and the cannabinoids saw the most beneficial results and a drastic reduction in size. In some cases, the tumors effectively disappeared. At the moment this is a mostly fatal disease. The benefits of the cannabis plant elements were known before, but the drastic reduction of brain cancers if used with irradiation is something new and may well prove promising for patients who are in gravely serious situations with such cancers in the future.”

London.1: Study shows Cannabis used with chemotherapy most effective for Leukemia

Research from 2017 has confirmed that Cannabis is effective in killing leukemia cells, particularly when used in combination with chemotherapy treatments. These researchers also found that combining existing chemotherapy treatments with cannabinoids had better results than chemotherapy alone, meaning that a similar level of effect could be achieved through using a lower dose of the chemotherapy. ”We have shown for the first time that the order in which cannabinoids and chemotherapy are used is crucial in determining the overall effectiveness of this treatment”, said Dr. Wai Liu, who led the study published in the International Journal of Oncology. ”Cannabinoids are a very exciting prospect in oncology, and studies such as ours serve to establish the best ways that they should be used to maximize a therapeutic effect.”

Still England: Woman with 6 weeks to live cures her cancer with Cannabis oil

Joy Smith, 52, from Coventry, was given just six weeks to live after being diagnosed with inoperable stomach and bowel cancer in August 2016. Ms Smith reluctantly took cannabis-based tablets, alongside chemotherapy, after reading about a cancer patient in the US who went into remission after producing her own marijuana oil. Nearly two years on, doctors, who described Ms Smith as ‘the luckiest woman in the world', are baffled as her scans show just a small amount of the disease is left in her stomach, which she is confident will disappear. “I'm a walking miracle. The doctors call me Wonder Woman. Cannabis oil should be legalized for medical purposes; people are dying and chemotherapy isn't curing them”, said Ms. Smith.

UK again, with Italy: Cannabis provides chemopreventive effects on colon cancer

A study published in the Journal of Molecular Medicine, conducted by researchers from the UK and Italy showed that cannabis extracts that contains CBD can aid in the prevention of colon cancer. The substance they used had high amounts of CBD, and was successful in inhibiting the growth of tumor cells without affecting healthy cells. They also found that this action was enabled due to the activation of the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the cells. Many individuals have reportedly been able to successfully treat different stages of colon cancer with Cannabis.

More UK: The US Government FINALLY Admits Cannabis Kills Cancer Cells!

That research that was done by a team at St. George's University of London? Funded by the US Government, because we are prevented from doing it ourselves, by our own laws! A group of researchers commissioned by the United States government has unwittingly found that cannabis can actually kill cancer cells. The research found that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) weakened cancer cells and made them more susceptible to radiation treatment. The study, which was published in 2014 in the medical journal Molecular Cancer Therapies, found “dramatic reductions” in fatal types of brain cancer where cannabinoids were used in conjunction with radiation therapy. Yes this was mentioned earlier here, but still…

British father of one cures terminal colon cancer, doctor was “almost speechless”

David Hibbitt, from Stoke-on-Trent in the United Kingdom, defeated his terminal cancer via the administration of a high potency Cannabis extract in the form of oil. “The cancer returned to my lymph nodes around my groin during December 2013, however it was not diagnosed until the following February. I received the news in February that I was now terminal. I had chemotherapy for a further 3 months, then I started to take the Cannabis oil. I then completely halted chemo in August 2014 and was sent for a scan; the results showed a nodule present in one of my lungs. I then decided to up the dosage to one gram of oil per day and was soon after sent to receive a PET scan which revealed that the cancer in my lung had disappeared. I refused the following treatment and have remained cancer free ever since. The only reason I can think that it is not legally available to people medically is because they would not be able to make a profit.”

Cambridge, MA: Harvard study shows smoking Cannabis improves brain functions

Researchers from McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and Tufts University have found incredible benefits from the Cannabis plant’s use, including the improvement to “our ability to utilize the knowledge acquired by mental processes in our brains.”. 24 patients were consistently measured with cognitive testing; after three months of medical marijuana treatment, patients actually performed better, in terms of their ability to perform certain cognitive tasks, specifically those mediated by the frontal cortex,” explained Staci Gruber, PhD, director of the Marijuana Investigations for Neuroscientific Discovery (MIND) program at the Hospital.

Utah: Cannabis oil cures terminal cancer in 3-year-old after complete chemo failure

A 3 year-old Utah boy, diagnosed with leukemia and told by doctors that he had mere days to live, is now alive and well not because he continued his chemotherapy, but because he obtained cannabis oil treatment instead. The family, fed up with the fact that the only treatment doctors could recommend was chemotherapy–even after their little boy kept vomiting dozens of times daily and refused to eat after two months of chemo–looked into cannabis oil treatment. After researching the details, they fled Utah and traveled to Colorado where such a treatment is legal. Within just days of the treatment, Landon began vomiting less and less each day and finally began to eat. As explained on a CNN video, Landon is still cancer-free even months later.

California: Men’s health meta-study shows Cannabis lowers risk of bladder cancer

Joe D. Goldstrich, MD, recently came across a paper from the February 2015 issue of the journal Urology, by Anil A. Thomas and colleagues from Kaiser Permanente’s Southern California Department of Research and Evaluation. The investigators analyzed the records of more than 84,000 male patients in this groundbreaking analysis. They found that those who used cannabis but not tobacco had a rate of bladder cancer 45% lower than the norm.
