Cannabis Cures Many Forms of Cancer

By Michael Taillard, NORML Nebraska Board Member, professional economist

There’s still a lot of confusion across the nation about whether or not marijuana is effective for cancer patients. Odds are you’ve heard something about it but weren’tjilly-bean-medical-marijuana-weed-strain-thcf-jillybeanweed sure whether the information was reliable or definitive. So, in order to help clear things up, here is a list of 25 studies showing that marijuana cures cancer, categorized by the type of cancers being cured in each study. As you sort through the articles, note that the consistent theme between them is that marijuana shrinks tumors and selectively targets cancer cells. As bills and voter initiatives to legalize medical marijuana spread from state to state, remember that we’re not just talking about mitigating the side effects of chemo (though this is another viable use), we’re talking about curing the cancer itself as well as preventing its spread. I’ve taken the liberty of only including articles from credible scientific journals, removing any biased or otherwise improperly cited studies. Enjoy!

    My Mother was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer about a one year ago, she has had an extremely difficult journey. She has had two rounds of chemotherapy, one round or Y90 Radiation and now is experiencing liver failure. Jaundice, a weak appetite and depression are a few of her symptoms. I’m wondered what other treatment options she has (such as a liver transplant or a clinical trial) and also how long she has to live. My mother is my best friend and hero, she endures so much as your loved ones do too.but a cousin of mine came to our rescue by ordering this hemp oil from a foundation in US,and so far the medication has proved effective.now my mother can do things she never could do before,i am so happy so i decided to use this medium to alert all cancer patient that with a good hemp oil,you can definitely beat cancer.if you happen to be in need of this medication,you can contact the foundation with this email:rickcannabisoil19@gmail.com

    I have a Schwannoma on my neck that is slowly growing. This is a nerve sheath tumor that is non cancerous, but is dangerous because it could affect the vegas nerve and surgery could mean, not breathing on my own!!
    No chance that I will be having surgery, but am wondering if you have heard anything about cannabis working with this type of tumor?
    Thanks
    Linda

    I have had 11 back surgeries and get terrible spasms that I have to take medication floor I am looking for a cannabis called charlottes web where they have taken the majority of the THC out in the CBD’s is what is stopping children from having seizures and I’m wondering if this would work on my spasms on my back can anybody give me any information

    1. nagchampa

      Hello Terri, I have chronic pain that sometimes progresses to muscle spasms. I haven’t tried Charlotte’s Web, but I have tried Nordle, at 5.41% THC and 7.70% CBD. It provides excellent pain relief, and made me comfortably sleepy. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to stop the spasms – perhaps it calms them down a bit. But the Herbs do different things for different people. I suggest that you search for some as it’s easier to locate than the Charlotte’s Web.

      You might also look for Pennywise, another strain with high CBD ratios at about 4 – 5% THC and 5 – 7% CBD.

      There are a number of strains identified as good for epilepsy as well as for muscle spasm at cannasos(dot)com, which is an excellent search engine for cannabis patients wanting strain information pertaining to medical conditions. Their easy-to-use search tool will provide you with a number of suggestions.
      Good Luck!

      Namaste

    Four years ago I was diagnosed of diabetes, as if the pains of diabetes wasn’t bad enough Last year I was also diagnosed of cancer which was more critical in my case because of the diabetes which I already had. It was as if my world had come to an end cause the doctor told me that it was only by the grace of the almighty that I was alive to receive their diagnosis. As usual I was given few weeks to live but the pains I went through made each day feel like my last and I was so scared cause I wasn’t ready to leave this world yet, I had a lot of things that I wanted to do that I hadn’t done yet and I knew the almighty wouldn’t call on me before I started my mission on earth. My little niece told me about Rick Simpson cannabis oil when she came visiting, she told me she heard her friend’s mom talking about it and she persuaded me to look it up, I watched some of his videos and read some comments online and I was pleased with what I saw so I gave him a call and sent him an email We talked and I was convinced that he was my ticket to my new dawn. I purchased the oil and I have being following the prescription that I was given for the past two months and there has being rapid improvement in my health, I no longer feel pains and I wake up each morning feeling revived, energized and rejuvenated.If passing through this pain, please contact Ricks on Email.ricksimpsoncannabisoils@outlook.com.

    1. nagchampa

      Blues Bradon, I’m not sure who you were emailing, but the email address you’ve posted belongs to an imposter and not Rick Simpson.

      Please access Rick’s information about Phoenix Tears oil at his official website: http://www.phoenixtears.ca and you’ll find that most of your questions will be answered through his free recipes and instruction videos. In Rick’s website intro he requests that people review his site for their own answers before they contact him. If your answers can’t be found in his free videos, as a last resort you can contact him at: phoenixtearsadmin@gmail.com

      Cheers all!

    Excellent article! More people need to be educated about cannabis as a cure for cancer. Despite all of the evidence, people still are unwilling to accept that cannabis is a miracle plant.

    HOW MY FATHER LUNG CANCER WAS CURED WITH RICK SIMPSON CANNABIS OIL

    My name is Jend and my father has been suffering from lung cancer and the doctor told us that there nothing he could do after doing 5 times chemotherapy and radiation and my father was not responding to treatment and not getting better.i was frustrated and confused and seeking advice from people until a friend told me about the Rick simpson cannabis oil and its fast curing ability of any kind of cancer and told me that her mother inlaw ovarian cancer was cured with the oil. I was desperate to save my father and contacted Rick simpson via ricksimpsoncannabisoil@gmx.com to get this miraculous oil. So far so good my father is responding to treatment of cannabis oil and the health condition have improved drastically for good.

      my dog was diagnosed with cancer of the spleen 2 yrs ago, he had 3-5 weeks to live. I have not had the ability to stick with a strain or proper dosing but flying by the seat of my pants and its working. He’s old 14yrs 75lb lab/mastiff cross he gets .1ml _ .3ml of oil every night wrapped in a deli meat. He has occasional bouts of diarrhea and sleeps more but hey he’s happy and not in pain and that’s great!

  12. Penny

    I am wondering where one can get the forms of Cannabis that are used in these studies….

  13. Anonymous

    The best way most people say is ingesting the plant, juicing it also works well. And if you are a proponent of smoking I would recommend Vaporizing to clear the lungs 🙂

    Good luck with your battles with cancer guys!
    I have a lump in my breast that needs to be checked out, hoping it’s benign.

    I have ms. What would be best?

    1. john simmons

      CBD is a proven neuroprotectant. The US government patent on cannabinoids is based on this. So, i am suggesting that you ingest CBD-rich cannabis material — smoke or eat or tincture, your choice — every day. You won’t get high, or addicted, or anything bad.

  15. Deb

    I read about cannabis being good for my cancer……but how? Smoking? I have blood cancer…..don’t understand all medical jargon…thx
