Cannabis to kill my cancer cells?

Interestingly, I have been telling my friends, that I am very open-minded and that my only job – and that not only during my cancer-project – is to keep up a high vibration and attract all the wonderful alternative gifts from nature, or from the healing hands of friends, from education, changing my diet and even from considering frog-poison to detox my system. However, I said it is important to hear things several times or to feel a very strong affinity with the therapy suggested. Somehow that had never been the case for Cannabis, despite the fact that it keeps popping up again and again. Maybe I am not that open-minded after all.

Just an hour ago, I read an article that stated that Marijuana was 114 times better for us than alcohol – and that #just a few minutes before pouring my Gin & Tonic…just a tiny one!

Here is the study:

Cannabis has been demonized as a gateway drug for more than 80 years. Now, in a stunning, though quiet, feat of acknowledgment, the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) has admitted that cannabis kills cancer cells without harming normal cells.

The alternative media has been reporting on the medicinal benefits of marijuana for years. Multiple independent studies have found that marijuana can kick a host of health problems to the curb, including everything from lyme disease to tumors. See here andhere.

Apparently, the overwhelmingly massive amounts of evidence in favor of the medicinal benefits of marijuana finally caused the NCI to buckle. The federal government sponsored agency recently updated the FAQs on its website to incorporate studies that demonstrated that marijuana can and has destroyed cancer cells. Cancer kills approximately 20,000 people worldwide each day, according to global health estimates.(3)

NIC states marijuana can shrink cancerous tumors

Health researchers from the U.S. government now state that cannabinoids, a class of compounds present in cannabis, can hinder cancer by causing cell death and stymieing blood vessels necessary for tumor growth.

They claim studies on mice and rats demonstrate that cannabinoids are able to destroy cancer cells while protecting noncancerous cells. The chemical constitution of marijuana was found to be effective at combating colon cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer and various other forms of the disease.

In addition, health officials also implied that cannabinoids can foster the effectiveness of chemotherapy without adding to the side-effects. According to health researchers on the U.S. government’s website:

“A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in human glioma cells showed that when given along with chemotherapy, CBD may make chemotherapy more effective and increase cancer cell death without harming normal cells. Studies in mouse models of cancer showed that CBD together with delta-9-THC may make chemotherapy such as temozolomide more effective.”

“A study in mice showed that cannabinoids may protect against inflammation of the colon and may have potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer, and possibly in its treatment.”

“A laboratory study of delta-9-THC in hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) cells showed that it damaged or killed the cancer cells. The same study of delta-9-THC in mouse models of liver cancer showed that it had antitumor effects. Delta-9-THC has been shown to cause these effects by acting on molecules that may also be found in non-small cell lung cancer cells and breast cancer cells.”

“A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancer cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells. Studies in mouse models of metastatic breast cancer showed that cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.”

An unprecedented acknowledgement about the medicinal benefits of marijuana

The health officials go on to note that cannabinoid receptors have anti-inflammatory effects, which may play a role in alleviating pain. In addition, several animal studies have found that cannabinoids may prevent nerve problems like tingling, swelling and muscle weakness, caused by different types of chemotherapy.(3)

These studies are regarded by the NCI as preclinical, and were all conducted using animals. According to health officials, no clinical trials of marijuana use to help treat cancer have been published.(3)

The big news isn’t the result of these studies, however. As noted earlier, the alternative media has covered the medicinal benefits of marijuana over and over. What is news, is that after decades of the federal government chastising marijuana, the cancer-fighting power of cannabis can no long be ignored.

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.

  1. I have been using CBD oil during my recovery. It’s great. I don’t drink alcohol or take any drugs including pharmaceuticals and I highly recommend it. I also find hemp
    Products like protein powder extremely good for the body and the planet.
    It’s a shame this government is so corrupted by big pharma and making it challenging for people to be healthy and live sustainably.

  2. Just a thought or two on my mind at the moment……Frankincense oil and Moringa…..
    4TH American Cause of Death – Doctor induced drugs and treatments.
    ‘Cancer is curable- But not every person is curable’.
    ‘To get out of the mud you have to walk through the mud’……Vedas
    Coffee enemas. Adopt a plant based diet a.s.a.p…….
    Attention to dietary needs is worth more than 5000 hours in the gym.
    RAVE diet…..Macrobiotic Zen diet ..1/3 raw,1/3 cooked and juice and smoothie 1/3..just a thought……Good idea???
    Fasting from grains twice a month is considered fasting healthily in this age.
    Get a Probounder for..aerobic and lymphatic health. Curcumin with hot water in the A.M
    Photo-Oxidation/Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Therapy…not so expensive.
    1/8 tsp baking soda in a large glass of clean water. Dog grass..grasses may be more important than seeds….Pray/Meditate/Japa and breath properly…and a dash of Chi-Gung for Stress relief. Puff puff..pass Thanks,Barbara.

  3. P.S. Mountain’s rarefied atmosphere (Rocky Mountains ) and ocean side (North Curl Curl) best visit for health and recovery.
    Would love to revisit Amazing and Awesome Australia and New Zealand once again.
