Study: Marijuana Drastically Shrinks Aggressive Form Of Brain Cancer


Marijuana brain stressI hate cancer. Right now I have two family members battling cancer, and it’s a very sad thing. I am confident that they will both win their battle. In the case of my step dad, this is his second battle. I have urged both of them to try marijuana  to compliment their other treatments, and I’m happy to say, both of them are trying it. A new study was recently released that shows marijuana can shrink a very aggressive form of brain cancer. Per the Huffington Post:

In a paper published Friday in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapies, a team of researchers from St. George’s University of London outlined the “dramatic reductions” they observed in high-grade glioma masses, a deadly form of brain cancer, when treated with a combination of radiation and two different marijuana compounds, also known as cannabinoids. In many cases, those tumors shrunk to as low as one-tenth the sizes of those in the control group.

“We’ve shown that cannabinoids could play a role in treating one of the most aggressive cancers in adults,” Dr. Wai Liu, one of the study’s lead authors, wrote in an op-ed earlier this week. “The results are promising…it could provide a way of breaking through glioma and saving more lives.”

In an email to The Huffington Post, Liu pointed out that while research surrounding marijuana’s cancer-fighting properties is nothing new, his team is the first to document its effect on the disease when used alongside radiation. “The results showed that the final effect was superior to the sum of the parts,” he said. “Hopefully, these results will support calls for formal trials in humans to test these combinations.”

If you know someone that is battling cancer, make sure to give them some literature about how cannabis can help them. They are going through a very difficult time, so don’t be pushy, but make sure to at least offer up some advice and an opportunity to help them. It just might save their life.

I want to specially thank Rick Simpson for saving my friend’s life with his healing oil. some years back my friend Rose was diagnosed with a deadly disease cancer of the lungs, we try all medication all to no avail, we also try to do the oil our selves but we were doing more harm than worse. until I saw a post on facebook on how the cannabis oil had cured a cancer patient, I quickly mailed this email: phoenixtearsadim@gmail.com

    From that very moment we just have to give it a trier, instantly we got a reply from him asking us what the exact cancer problem that my friend Rose has, we explained every details of it to him and he told us, that his oil will heal my friend cancer problem only if we can order for it as soon as possible.
    He calculated the dosage for us to buy i think the dosage he calculated was 60grams of the oil which we ordered plus 30grams maintenance free and also with a body lotion and soap. He told us that if we order it online now by the next 48hours the medication will get to our door step through the delivery services, we decided to give it a try and behold when we did exactly 48hours of ordering the medication came to our door step through the delivery agent and deliver it to us. immediately we emailed Rick back that we have gotten the medication, and the usage instruction manual was also delivered to us. my friend Rose started the medication immediately just after a month of using Rick Simpson cannabis oil, Rose is now free from cancer problem, she is living a healthy life my utmost priority of sharing this short testimony is for those that are suffering from my kind of cancer diseases or if your friend or family members are suffering from this deadly disease, please don’t die in silence there is a cure for your cancer today don’t waste anytime further you have to email Rick Simpson directly and save your live and the lives of others

  3. My husband was recently diagnosed with glioblastoma grade 4. Already made arrangements for cannabis oil! Picking it up tomorrow. Not legal yet for medical use in NH but not going to sit around for that to happen, his life is on the line!! Looking forward to seeing positive results

  4. Well, what a beautiful eve early morning this is
    after my mom got sick with the flu, i got her to try some weed
    she was able to eat, she had just vomited not long before
    thanks you God
    she admitted it did help, even though she coughed it right out, i believe it did help her, she was feeling really bad just prior:-)
    glad i am to have been able to share:-)

  5. It sounds that your suspicions are that the plants have a symbiotical relationship with those around them, and i have wondered if that could be true, or is it that plants, just like people have personality traits all their own in a sense, as you pointed out the varying degrees of different results from different plants with different chemical makeups, and different then beam tested thc rotation in degrees, maybe whether the rotation is negative or positive might also warrant investigation in the understanding of just what makes our bodies and minds content and blissful the best, it well even if it is not found that any symbiotical relationship happens, and i find it hard not to believe that it does, the plants would get the best care by a caring person, opposed to an uncaring mean one, or one that is ignorant to how to grow a healthy plant with vigorous thc “clear crystal” growth

  6. My mom’s neighbor was DX with lung cancer we are in Virginia she got the cannabis oil but was unsuccessful and the cancer spread. If a cannabis doctor had been following her I believe she would have had better success

  7. no, ice floats, maybe gas bubbles from boiling form in the peas, making them lighter than water?

    whats the deal? A kid at a playground gets gunned down? whats the whole story
    id like to know how any cop can feel ok with this
    it was stupid of me as a kid, i know, but i had toy guns as a kid, a lot of westerns were in vogue in that time of my life, and people settled their disputes with bullets
    i think it is disgusting now, to kill people just cause you can, in fantasy or in reality as a full grown man
    makes no love grow in this sometimes unhappy land
