The Growing List of Illnesses Cannabis Can Treat

Your body makes its own cannabinoids, similar to those found in marijuana, but in much smaller amounts. These endocannabinoids appear to perform signaling operations similar to your body’s neurotransmitters, such as dopamine and serotonin. Cannabinoid receptors can be found on cell membranes throughout your body — in fact, scientists now believe they may represent the most widespread receptor system.7

The fact that your body is replete with cannabinoid receptors, key to so many biological functions, is why there’s such enormous medical potential for cannabis. CBD may be the most potent and beneficial of the cannabinoids, particularly for tamping down an overactive immune system, as is the case with autoimmune disease. CBD also has antipsychotic properties but does not get you high.

The response of cancer patients to cannabis treatment is very encouraging. Not only does cannabis help with the unpleasant side effects of traditional chemotherapy (including pain, nausea, and insomnia), but the cannabis itself appears to be a natural chemotherapy agent. Over the past several years, dozens of studies point to marijuana’s effectiveness against many different types of cancer, including brain cancer, breast and prostate, lung, thyroid, colon, pituitary, melanoma, and leukemia. It fights cancer via at least two mechanisms, making it difficult for a cancer to grow and spread:

  1. Cannabis is pro-apoptotic, meaning it triggers apoptosis (cellular suicide) of cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells untouched
  2. Cannabis is anti-angiogenic, meaning it cuts off a tumor’s blood supply

This may explain why chronic pot smokers have such surprisingly low rates of lung and other cancers, especially when compared to cancer rates among tobacco smokers.8,9 In addition to cancer, cannabis has been found effective against an ever-growing list of illnesses. Research has been limited, but we may be turning the corner. It’s likely we’ll soon be expanding this list as the evolving political climate becomes more favorable to cannabis research.

Mental disorders, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), mood disorders, and Tourette’s syndrome Seizure disorders
Pain and insomnia Rheumatoid arthritis
Degenerative neurological disorders, dystonia, and tremor Heart disease
Multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune issues Autism
Parkinson’s disease Obesity
Cancer, numerous types Nausea, vomiting, and lack of appetite

Cancer Myths And How The Miracle Medicine Works

The cancer industry is just that… Industry (as in a commercial enterprise)

Cancer is often considered a by product of our environment and food intake (among other potential causation). It is evident that something has caused a humungous rise in cancers and deaths over the past one hundred years (or more) and the notion that genetics, alone, as the main cause cannot be true. It is a man-made phenomena:

‘In industrialised societies, cancer is second only to cardiovascular disease as a cause of death. But in ancient times, it was extremely rare.

‘There is nothing in the natural environment that can cause cancer. So it has to be a man-made disease, down to pollution and changes to our diet and lifestyle.

‘The important thing about our study is that it gives a historical perspective to this disease. We can make very clear statements on the cancer rates in societies because we have a full overview. We have looked at millennia, not one hundred years, and have masses of data.

‘Yet again extensive ancient Egyptian data, along with other data from across the millennia, has given modern society a clear message – cancer is man-made and something that we can and should address.’

Follow The Money

I also subscribe to the idea that one should follow the money, and the fact is that the cancer industry is Big Money. This same Doctor explained in a Wall Street Journal article:

“These drugs cost too much,” Leonard Saltz, chief of gastrointestinal oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, said in a speech heard by thousands of doctors here for the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Dr. Saltz’s remarks focused mainly on an experimental melanoma treatment made by Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. , but he also criticized pricing more widely. He cited statistics showing that the median monthly price for new cancer drugs in the U.S. had more than doubled in inflation-adjusted dollars from $4,716 in the period from 2000 through 2004 to roughly $9,900 from 2010 through 2014. Dr. Saltz cited studies showing that the price increases haven’t corresponded to increases in the drugs’ effectiveness.

“Cancer-drug prices are not related to the value of the drug,” Dr. Saltz said. “Prices are based on what has come before and what the seller believes the market will bear.”

The thing about Big Money is that they will lie with abandon just to continue making the buck (irregardless of the harm done).

The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness…

Every now and again, guilt of complicity takes a hold of a few and the decent ones will explain the corruption (much to the chagrin of others caught up in the lies).

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines.

Cancer Industry Myths Versus Facts

There are 5 basic facts that the cancer industry promotes as myths (see at Prevent Disease):

    1. The rise in all types of cancer is due to modern diet, lifestyle, and environment. Records of lifespan prior to the 18th century are scarce, but in all records of studied prehistoric skeletons, only 200 cases of possible cancer have been found. However, from 1900-2011, cancer deaths have increased 3 foldOne researcher found that in 80% of processed food, 4 main ingredients are found which harm immunity: corn, wheat, soy, and meat.
    2. Superfoods and herbs can prevent cancer. This is true in many cases. In fact, there are 17 herbs and spices which in their own right are considered super-foods, and have been scientifically proven to prevent and treat cancer.
    3. Acidic diets cause cancer. Blood pH should be within a range of 7.3 to 7.41. If the pH is lower than that range, acidosis occurs, which leads to central nervous system depression. Severe acidosis (below 7.0) can cause coma and death. If the pH rises above 7.45, the result is alkalosis. Keeping the body closer to an alkaline state (up to .05) can make a significant difference in cancer growth or suppression. Cancer cells can’t live in an alkaline environment.
    4. Sugar feeds cancer. A four-year study at the National Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection in the Netherlands compared 111 biliary tract cancer patients with 480 controls. Cancer risk associated with the intake of sugars, independent of other energy sources, more than doubled for the cancer patients. Another epidemiological study covering 21 modern countries (Europe, North America, Japan and others) found that sugar intake is a strong risk factor for higher breast cancer rates, especially in older women.
    5. Conventional cancer treatment kills more than it cures. Five year relative survival rates for cancer are standard because after 5 years, many patients’ conditions worsen. More accurate long-term statistics would reflect ten years or more, as well as data on cost-effectiveness, immune system impact, quality of life, morbidity, and mortality. When these factors are considered, chemotherapy makes little to no contribution to cancer survival.

How The Miracle Medicine Actually Works

As long as we continue to believe these myths hiding as the “industry’s” facts, we will continue to get sick and die at alarming rates. But I would not be complete without addressing other “myths”, especially regarding the usage of cannabis. I address these myths and lies about medical cannabis often (and that barely covers all the posts on the subject here).

Even though we are seeing that some of the Industry is being forced to admit that there are medical benefits to cannabis, they are still trying to make money from it. Tactics include deriving certain compounds from the plant and synthesizing it into product. They minimize certain other compounds that also have wonderful benefits, even to the point of perpetuating the idea of illegality, except for their “product”. THC is a prime example of this bait and switch.

All of us have heard about the usage and promotion of CBD’s. The media and government pushes it to no end and many states are enacting laws to make this substance available, especially “for the children”. Yes, high CBD oils DO, in fact, stop deadly cancers, as seen in this presentation (but that does not mean that the THC contained in that oil was not helpful).

I am not poo-pooing CBD’s, especially in natural forms. But the fact is that THC, the demonized constituent (because it gets you high), is also as much, if not more so, medically effectual.

Case in point is how THC attacks breast cancer cells and KILLS them.

THC has the miraculous capacity to help those who suffer from cancer. The wonder compound increases appetite, reduces nausea and can even help to quell pains that patients suffer from cancer and its unpleasant list of symptoms. However, despite the numerous findings and studies that have been published about this, cannabis is still vilified by the government and kept federally illegal.

A clip from documentary called “Clearing the Smoke” depicts a microscopic view of cancer cells that have had THC administered to them, which causes the malignant cells to weaken and eventually die completely.

In the beginning of the video, the malignant cancer cells are seen quickly moving under the lens of the microscope. But as the THC molecules begin to affect them, they turn blue and begin to slow down. Eventually they cease moving completely and some can even be seen dying from the effects of the THC near the end of the clip.

The video itself is fantastic visual evidence that THC, even administered in low doses (as was depicted), can be a highly-effective tool in the ongoing fight against cancer.

News as exciting as this is not something new to the federal government; in fact, a study that was published in the August 18, 1974 issue of the Washington Post reported finding that THC “slowed the growth of lung cancer, breast cancers, and virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives as much as 36 percent.”

The results themselves read: “Animals treated for 10 consecutive days with delta-9-THC, beginning the day after tumor implantation, demonstrated a dose-dependent action of retarded tumor growth. Mice treated for 20 consecutive days with delta-8-THC and CBN had reduced primary tumor size.”

The study was conducted by a team of researchers at the Medical College of Virginia acting on the behalf of the federal government. Unfortunately, the government was unhappy with the results and had U.S. officials dismiss the study completely and buried it under the Watergate scandal. The findings were eventually published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute a year later.

No new reports of findings regarding THC and cancer surfaced after this study until a clinical trial that was conducted in the mid-1990s. This study was conducted by the U.S. National Toxicology program and worked off a $2 million federal budget.

The clinical trials gave very similar results: “that mice and rats administered high doses of THC over long periods experienced greater protection against malignant tumors than untreated controls.”

Even tests conducted throughout the world have found similar results to these. In 1998, researchers at Madrid’s Complutense University released a study that concluded that by administering THC to malignant brain tumor cells, the doctors were able to selectively induce apoptosis, or planned cell death. This allowed the researchers to systematically kill individual cancer cells without harming any of the nearby healthy cells.

And yet government officials and politicians have been adamant in keeping the law the same and condemning cannabis to be federally illegal, making this form of treatment an impossibility for a majority of U.S. cancer patients.

Hopefully this video will be enough visual and scientific proof that THC can be beneficial to be used by those suffering from cancer. At the very least, it may be able to save a few lives from suffering and bring new hope to those who are fighting cancer.

 Disregard Their Lies

Next time you hear the talking heads and profiteers demonize THC, remember the truth. When they say it is the gateway drug, understand that they have an ulterior motive. Remember that using the entire plant is much more efficient than the constituents alone (especially the synthetics). Remember that the Industrial Prison Complex and other criminal organizations (such as police forces who would rather arrest plant users than arrest rapists and murderers) have a vested interest in keeping the miracle medicine out of your hands. Remember the ability for these very criminals in blue to take your hard earned money (and even vibrators) in asset forfeiture.

How The Human Body Processes Cannabis

Beginner’s Guide To The Endocannabinoid System — The Reason Our Bodies So Easily Processes Cannabis

Dr. Allen, retired cardiac surgeon & cannabinoid research scientist enlightens us about the Endocannabinoid System.

In the future, perhaps 20 years from now, cannabis-based medicines will have a prominent place in the worldwide pharmacopeianaked-baby-makers again. Indeed, we might have even gotten there much faster if it hadn’t been for the draconian interference of the U.S. government. To this day, they are still blocking researchers from accessing cannabis to study. Countless thousands have died suffering and millions more continue to be denied access to plant-based medications that could not only mitigate their misery, but also possibly even cure them.Cannabis medications work so efficiently because of the endocannabinoid (EC) system, present in all humans and many animals as well. This system consists of a series of receptors that are configured only to accept cannabinoids, especially tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Not enough research has been done on the other ones, cannabinol (CBN) and cannabigerol (CBG) plus others, to know much about their mechanisms of effect.This system, an integral part of our physiologies, was discovered in the mid-1990s by Israeli researcher Dr. Ralph Mechoulam who also identified THC as the main active ingredient in cannabis in the early 1960s. Israel has been one of the most progressive nations for cannabis research and currently has one of the most advanced medical marijuana programs in the world. They are international leaders in advanced greenhouse technology, routinely producing flowers with 20 percent or greater THC.Dr. Mechoulam’s world-changing research discovered two main receptors, cannabinoid 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid 2 (CB2), that are keyed to both the endocannabinoids that our body naturally produces and phytocannabinoids (plant-based) like THC and CBD. Our bodies actually produce the ECs similar to how our body produces narcotic-like endorphins. Synthetic cannabinoids, like the ones found in Marinol, also fit the receptor sites but don’t work as efficiently as the natural ones.

This research barely created a stir when first published as the whole world was still wrapped up in drug war madness. A prominent scientist discovers that our bodies not only have receptor sites cued just for cannabinoids but that our bodies actually produce them internally. The next step was to figure out how this affects our body’s functioning.

grandma-says

CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain, although they are also both present in the male and female reproductive organs. Current research shows that THC is specifically keyed to the CB1 site. Therefore it is responsible for the feeling of intoxication that is the most familiar aspect of cannabis. From a therapeutic standpoint, it’s most important effect is to modulate and moderate the perception of pain. For example, touching a finger to a hot stove sends an electrical impulse that goes from the finger to the brain. The brain replies, “ouch, hot” and the finger is pulled away.

THC moderates pain; this doesn’t mean we leave our finger on the stove, but that the intensity of the painful feeling is reduced when THC is present in the CB1 site. This mechanism of action is why THC-rich medicines are so prized by people with intense pain issues. Cannabis and narcotics are also co-agonists, which means that each of them magnifies the effect of the other. This allows people to take lower doses and still have it be effective. Additionally, CB1 receptors are not present in the part of the brain that regulates heart rate and respiration, so unlike narcotics, there is no lethal dosage threshold for THC, allowing someone to consume as much is needed for its palliative effects.

polsreefer39762_thumbCB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune system with the highest concentration located in the spleen. There is some evidence that the receptors might also be in the micro parts of the brain’s basal ganglia, or nerve bundles. Again, a lack of comprehensive research has left many without the knowledge that should be widely available.

The CB2 receptors are keyed to CBD and works as an anti-inflammatory agent. The immune-boosting functions of CB2 are far less understood as research into CBD is just really beginning. It’s only been about five years since CBD re-emerged in the medical cannabis scene and was identified through Steephill Labs. The benefits of CBD-rich medicine, with its anti-spasmodic qualities, is one the most exciting and promising areas of cannabis medical research currently happening. One of the other effects of CBD is that it moderates the effects of THC. It actually knocks THC off the CB1 receptor, so if someone is experiencing THC intoxication, a strong dose of CBD can counteract those effects. The future of CBD-rich medicines is almost limitless. Indeed, we have just barely scratched the surface of planet cannabis.

THC and CBD are the two main cannabinoids that are focused on, however there are dozens and possibly hundreds more. Some of the ones that have been identified and studied include CBG, which binds to both CB1 as well as CB2 and is an antagonist to CB1, meaning that it moderates the effects of THC. Cannabichromene (CBC) is non-psychoactive and has both anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. CBN occurs when THC degrades. For this reason, it is rarely seen in fresh cannabis and is only mildly psychoactive, having a mostly sleepy effect. Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is another cannabinoid usually found in central Asian and southern African strains that also acts as a THC antagonist. There are more cannabinoids than can be listed here and they all have the potential to be as life changing as CBD is turning out to be.

The fact that there is a system in our body that produces cannabinoids, and is specifically designed to accept just them, should be overwhelming proof of cannabis’ efficacy as a medicine. From the pain-killing effects of THC to the anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, we have just scratched the surface of a world of possibilities. People are waking up to the benefits of these medicines as more researchers are exploring the infinite possibilities inherent in this seemingly simple plant. Future generations will look back and wonder why it took so long to figure this out.

The Hippycrits

The Horror

The Horror

I have written about this “useless drug” before here many, many times. I’ve been called a pot head and much worse by those who are too ignorant to understand that EVERY THING the government/media tells us is a lie. It doesn’t matter what the subject is, if it is critical, but takes away profit from the Corporate Controllers (mostly Jews), they lie.

But people of the world know. A majority of people figured it out, so the lies are untenable. Now you see the media and many government goons admitting it has use. But they still try to water it down and I can speculate that all this time they have been trying to figure out a way to make more money off of it and still keep the plant illegal (its them having their cake and eating it, too).

I covered the fact that the hippycrits (the US Government) patented the useless drug over a year ago. But now the fact is getting much more visibility due to public understanding and the fact that people like Ben Swann are are using their outlets to get the word out:


U.S. Patent 6630507: Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants

AbstractCannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (I) wherein the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH.sub.3, and COCH.sub.3. ##STR1##

As Jon Rappoport puts it:

So let’s see. A) Claim marijuana is a very useful medicine, but b) reserve the right to arrest people who use it as a treatment.

That makes perfect sense when you’re dealing with government.

It also, of course, makes perfect sense when government partners, aka pharmaceutical companies, are busy developing their, ahem, “highly purified, completely reliable, extensively tested, absolutely safe,” and very profitable versions of marijuana as medicine.

Or when those companies are still clinging to the notion that marijuana can somehow be suppressed, because they realize its medicinal uses will pre-empt many of their best-selling, quite toxic drugs, which cure nothing but instead create new symptoms that “require more drugs.”

enhanced-buzz-4853-1362605167-13I’ve known about the efficacy of cannabis constituents for a long time. It helped me years ago and I know people that have used it to make their miserable, painful lives bearable, or, miraculously, heal themselves totally.

But Big Meds doesn’t want you to take care of yourself or to use a natural remedy that God put on this Earth. I explained that God fundamentally wired each and every human to respond to cannabis, whether you like that fact, or not. In other words, you may not know it or recognize it, but everyone is a pothead.

The brainwashing is deep and thorough. But I see light at the end of the tunnel because of people like Swann and Rappoport (and me, although to a very small degree). And there are many more people seeing that Big Meds is nothing but propagating and deepening ailments, basically over profits (and perhaps in some instances, to more quickly kill you).

Jon describes the modus operandi of the government in keeping it illegal as Big Meds forms their tainted cannabis based meds:

What to look out for: pharmaceutical companies will eventually try to market some version of marijuana as a drug, to be used as “an adjunct” with their own toxic compounds (e.g., chemotherapy). This strategy will sidestep the need to assert that marijuana cures anything, while also profiting from a sale of two drugs instead of one.

Drug companies and their federal partners will warn against the use of home-grown marijuana as medicine, citing lack of purity, consistency, and, of course, the absence of a prescribing physician—who must be in the mix, in order to ensure proper dosing for proper reasons.

In this regard, the FDA will probably insert its ugly face into the scene, to bolster the bottom-line of its main client, Big Pharma.

We could even see the resumption of the old pesticide spraying campaigns to poison marijuana grown outdoors.

We’ll certainly see GMO marijuana straight out of the foul maw of Monsanto, Dow, and Syngenta. Along with grotesque pesticides. (So protect the seeds.)

Holding a patent on marijuana as medicine, and accumulating more such patents, is a federal strategy designed to bring private growers and makers of marijuana oil into court at the government’s whim—on a charge of infringing on the patents’ territory. Add to that: practicing medicine without a license.

B’Man’s 2016 POTUS Watch: How Chris Christie Lost His POTUS Run

Fat Boy dons the beanie and humps the wall

Fat Boy dons the beanie and humps the wall while praying for more gefilte fish

Chris Christie is the Republican Governor of New Jersey. He thinks that kissing the Jews’ ass will get him the nomination for President of the United States.

On 4/14/15 he was on The Hugh Hewitt Show and was asked if he would enforce federal laws in the states that have legalized cannabis. He said:

“Absolutely. I will crack down and not permit it.”

He advanced his idiocy, apparently determined to sink his presidential run very early on, by continuing (instead of shutting his big matzo ball hole):

“Marijuana is a gateway drug. We have an enormous addiction problem in this country. And we need to send very clear leadership from the White House on down through the federal law enforcement. Marijuana is an illegal drug under federal law. And the states should not be permitted to sell it and profit from it.”

Judging by the sentiment of the nation and compared to the other Republican wall-humpers running (who are pretending to support state’s rights), this will seal his fate as a has-been (both as POTUS and as Governor).

Thank you and good riddance.

canna_risk5At the risk of seeming contrary since I added a new header for the blog that contains a rally cry for those who first stood up against taxes meant for the poor man in early American history (“Huzzah for the Whiskey Boys”), I wanted to show readers that my claims of Cannabis demonizing by the government/media/corporations has been shown to be propaganda and outright lies.

If interested, you should read about the Whiskey Rebellion and how us “White Indians” took on the Watermelon Army.

Many of us have been hoodwinked into believing all the lies about cannabis. It took $Billions and a constant many decades long pushRgvS7 from those who profit from the prohibition to make you so uneducated about the subject.

But, as is my nature, I find that any time officials tell me some storyline, I already know it to be bullshit 99% of the time. I also have the benefit of several decades of personal knowledge of the subject and know hundreds of people that understand the same thing… that cannabis is not in any way, dangerous to one’s health and welfare. The biggest issue with cannabis is the police state that has been formed around that lie. The most dangerous thing that could ever happen to a cannabis user is being arrested and one’s life ruined. It has absolutely nothing to do with the “danger” of the drug, no matter what this moron, OK Rep Markwayne Mullin says about it:

At a town hall meeting last night, Oklahoma Second District Congressman Markwayne Mullin slammed President Barack Obama for suggesting that recreational marijuana use is no more dangerous than social drinking, the Tulsa World‘s Randy Krehbiel reports.

Rep. Mullin was responding to a question about Obama’s position on marijuana, and he did so in a way that very closely resembled the argument favored by Fox News’ Sean Hannity — “I can drink a beer or two and I don’t really feel anything,” Hannity is fond saying, but “you can’t smoke a joint and not feel something.”

When asked about the president’s position, Rep. Mullin replied that “you can be a social drinker and not get drunk,” but “there’s no way you can take a drag on a joint without feeling it.”

“You can not — and I can’t speak to this, because I’m one of these guys who’s never tasted a drug in his life — but there is no way you can take a drag off a joint and not feel a little different. It alters your way of thinking.”

Rep. Mullin continued by saying that “those who smoke marijuana do so to get high, that’s the only purpose. There’s no other reason.”

“What about pain?” asked one town hall attendee.

“Pain?” a visibly annoyed Mullin replied. “Pain? I have screws and plates in me from [my head] to my toes, so I know about pain. The pain doesn’t go away, you just mask it (with drugs). The pain is still there. You have to learn to deal with it. Then you can move on with your life.”

“The only thing that [pain] does is give you an excuse [as to] why you can’t do something, of why you can’t accomplish something — ‘because I hurt.’”

God_made_weed,_man_made_beerI have had countless people explain to me how bad weed is. That it is worse than alcohol and as bad as heroin, crack, etc. Many, if not most of those people have NEVER even tried it, much less used it for any medical reasons. Perhaps there are a few people that have problems with it (I have one dear friend that says it makes him so paranoid that he won’t use it… but he drinks a 12 pack or more daily). I contend that most paranoia is based upon what one thinks might happen if they get caught by the police (or employer), not that the stuff makes them paranoid in and of itself (although there may be some that experience this). It would be such a small minority of users to make it insignificant. Differing strains have different effects on people, so if paranoia is an issue, find a strain that doesn’t induce it. (Of course, this would be easier if one could go to the liquorweed store and buy the exact strain they want like picking out your preferred Vodka)

My push has become a medical pursuit, but I also know that this is a freedom related issue. One should be free to use something that is so much less hazardous/damaging than alcohol (which, as I mentioned, is used by some of the very same ones who argue against marijuana in the first place), even IF there sole reason is to “get high”. Will Mark or Hannity tell me that people do not use alcohol to “get high”? Seriously? It was the only reason I ever used it. There certainly is hardly any medical benefit from it, yet I can (and have) posted hundreds of articles and links that prove marijuana efficacy.

Someone like MarkyMark Dumbass of OK, who has NEVER “tasted a drug in his life”, is going to explain to someone who has “tasted drugs” for a majority of his life, that it is not beneficial or IS worse than alcohol (btw: I don’t drink any more because the stuff makes me sick, kills people, and I have seen it ruin lives… none of which holds true with cannabis) has no factual basis except propaganda to go by. (I’m sure that the substantial donation from the National Beer Wholesalers Assn has nothing to do with his anti-pot platform)

I’m sorry, but anyone who has never tried it and wants to explain to those who have how awful it is should stfu because they do not know what they are talking about.

Period.

Yes, Weed Kills Cancer, But How?

How Do Cannabinoids Kill Cancer? – Dennis Hill

I was recently inspired to write something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. I notice in the popular literature, and even in the research, we really don’t see how cannabis kills cancer. I wanted to be able to write a one page piece on How It Works that anyone could understand in order to have confidence with this process that has generated a wide range of opinions.
~Dennis
cannabinoides-cancer-sein-prostate-5-910x702There is a plentiful supply of research articles and personal testaments that show the efficacy of cannabis effecting cancer remission. However, only a few point to the mechanism by which the cancer cells die. To understand this better we need to know what metabolic processes provide life to the cells.

There are two structures in most cells that sustain life; one is the mitochondria, and the other is the endoplasmic reticulum. The mitochondria primarily produces adenosine triphosphate (ATP) that provides the necessary energy. The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a loosely bound envelope around the cell nucleus that synthesizes metabolites and proteins directed by the nuclear DNA that nourish and sustain the cell.

Let us look first at tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and observe that THC is a natural fit for the CB1 cannabinoid receptor on the cancer cell surface. When THC hits the receptor, the cell generates ceramide that disrupts the mitochondria, closing off energy for the cell.

Disruption of the mitochondria releases cytochrome c and reactive oxygen species into the cytosol, hastening cell death. It is notable that this process is specific to cancer cells. Healthy cells have no reaction to THC at the CB1 receptor. The increase in ceramide also disrupts calcium metabolism in the mitochondria, completing the demise to cell death.

The other cannabinoid we know is effective in killing cancer cells is cannabidiol (CBD). The primary job of CBD in the cancer cell is to disrupt the endoplasmic reticulum through wrecking of the calcium metabolism, pushing calcium into the cytosol. This always results in cell death. Another pathway for CBD to effect cancer cell death is the Caspase Cascade, which breaks down proteins and peptides in the cell. When this happens the cell cannot survive. Again, these processes are specific to cancer cells, no normal cells are affected.
