The benefits of marijuana are countless and as per this recent study weed may also be able to kill cancer cells.   According to The Independent, the National Institute on Drug Abuse has issued a report that recognizes potential medical benefits of marijuana, something the US government has rejected in its classification of pot as a Schedule I drug – along with heroin, LSD and ecstasy. 
 
Several US states have allowed the use of medicinal marijuana – and a few allow recreational use – but the federal government still bans marijuana use. 
 
A report in the Daily Caller highlights that preclinical and clinical trials with marijuana and its extracts were used to treat numerous diseases and conditions, such as HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer’s disease, and  inflammation.  Reports also claim that a bill is being put together which would re-categorise cannabis to a new level that states it has some medicinal value.

Marijuana can kill certain cancer cells and shrink some brain tumors, according to research conducted by the US government-funded National Institute on Drug Abuse.

 

A NIDA animal study suggests that extracts from whole-plant marijuana can shrink a serious type of brain tumor, and research on mice showed that these extracts can enhance the cancer-killing effects of chemotherapy.  

 

Although marijuana is not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration as medicine, the plant contains several chemicals called cannabinoids which have been studied for their potential healing properties. Such research has led to the FDA’s approval of two medicines containing some of these chemicals in pill form.

 

"Recent animal studies have shown that marijuana can kill certain cancer cells and reduce the size of others," the NIDA report reads. "Evidence from one animal study suggests that extracts from whole-plant marijuana can shrink one of the most serious types of brain tumors."

"Research in mice showed that these extracts, when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation," it concludes

Several states have also passed laws legalizing marijuana for certain medical purposes however the use of it remains prohibited by federal law.

 

 

 

I see this all the time, where they talk about cannabis and radiation used together.  Heres a novel idea, how about using just cannabis alone and skip the deadly poisonous radiation?  You know why?  because radiation brings in some nice profits for big pharma and doctors but cannabis can be grown in your back yard and cannot be patented.  Also, chemotherapy is one of the only treatments that the attending doctor gets a cut of the profit.  Many doctors say that if they had cancer, they would not take their own chemotherapy as a treatment. 

 

 Once the truth surfaces about cannabis being the number one medicine for 5000 years, maybe folks will realize the government and many doctors are not interested in a cure for cancer and never have been.  What is also insane is that NIDA just stated they are spending 68 million dollars to study the medicinal properties of cannabis,  hmmm, sounds as if they already know it has benefits but they continue to keep the subject cloudy while wasting tax payer money.
