As more and more research is done, cannabis oil is gathering more and more momentum as a world class healing solution, despite how hard Western governments are trying to suppress it’s use. Thankfully, those governments are beginning to lose the battle.
Cannabis oil has been successfully shown to treat conditions ranging from anxiety to cancer. Reports like the one from Lincoln Horsley; who helped a man cure his stage IV throat, stomach, and pancreatic cancer using cannabis oil, are becoming increasingly common.
Cannabis oil research into its effects on cancer is not a new topic, either. Since 1974 studies have shown that cannabis has anti-tumor effects. The results of the 1974 study, reported in an Aug. 18, 1974, Washington Post newspaper feature, were that cannabis’s component, THC, “slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives by as much as 36 percent.” In 1975 an article in the Journal of the National cancer institute titled “Antineoplastic Activity of Cannabinoids,” they reported that “Lewis lung adenocarcinoma growth was retarded by the oral administration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinol (CBD). Mice treated for 20 consecutive days with THC and CBD had reduced primary tumor size.”
Makia Freeman, from Black Listed News explains: “All of the cells in our body have cannabinoid receptor sites, including cells which have gone rogue and become cancerous. The brilliant thing about cannabis oil is that its THC and CBD connect to these cannabinoid receptor sites, causing the cell to increase ceramide, which then causes apoptosis or cell death. However, normal cells are unaffected by this, so cannabis oil is a targeted killer of cancer cells, leaving healthy cells intact.”
Further, Dennis Hill, a bio-chemist wrote on cureyourowncancer.com: “Nature has designed the perfect medicine that fits exactly with our own immune system of receptors and signaling metabolites to provide rapid and complete immune response for systemic integrity and metabolic homeostasis.”
Medicinal cannabis oil is made by gathering large quantities of cannabis leaves from female plants, using a solvent to strip off some or all of the THC, and boiling off the excess water to produce a rich, gold or brown-colored concentrate. Depending on who is making it, the final product may have little or no THC, the chemical responsible for getting people “high”.
Most people don’t know that the actual war against cannabis originated in the 1920’s. Before then, hemp was widely used for textiles, clothing, paper, fuel, and medication. In fact, when the early colonist came to America, it was REQUIRED that they grow hemp. Along come the Rockefeller family, who began a campaign against cannabis as a way to protect their emerging petroleum-based pharmaceuticals. In the end, the Rockefellers wanted to eliminate competition, and without a monopoly of cannabis – naturally they suppressed it’s development.
Amazingly enough, science has yet to discover all of the hundreds or thousands of cannabis phytonutrients which are responsible for the healing effects of cannabis oil, but one of the main ones is CBD (Cannabidiol). Many clinical studies have shown that CBD is a very effective painkiller – especially for peripheral neuropathy associated with diabetes, arthritis, MS, cancer and other neurodegenerative conditions.
Aside from it’s medical implications – cannabis oil has been shown to have other incredible health benefits. The protein profile of hemp is very similar to that of human blood. Hemp contains all 8 essential amino acids, as well as 2 key globulins, albumin and edestin, the latter of which is found only in hemp seeds. Edestin is so similar to protein found in the human body that it can actually repair your DNA.
No matter where you live, it is a basic human right to be able to treat your illnesses, and maintain your health however you see fit. NO ONE should be able to tell you how to take care of your body, and thankfully research is providing the ammunition to refute these narrow-minded government regulations. Regulations that are not only ridiculous, but completely unfounded. As studies continue to be published highlighting the incredible benefits of cannabis oil, legislators around the world are beginning to pay attention.
