Medical science is strongly in favor of THC-laden hemp oil as a primary cancer therapy, not just in a supportive role to control the side effects of chemotherapy. Hemp seed oil has long been recognized as one of the most versatile and beneficial substances known to man. Derived from hemp seeds (a member of the achene family of fruits) it has been regarded as a super food due to its high essential fatty acid content and the unique ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 and gamma linolenic acid (GLA)—2:5:1. Hemp seed oil is known to contain up to 5 percent of pure GLA, a much higher concentration than any other plant, even higher than spirulina. For thousands of years, the hemp plant has been used in elixirs and medicinal teas because of its healing properties and now medical science is zeroing in on the properties of its active substances.
The essential oil derived from the crystals on the bud and upper leaves is not the same as hemp seed oil. There is very little nutritional benefit in the buds of the plant, but the THC carries the curative power in the cannabinoids and cannibidiols. Used as a tea, the leaves containing the THC crystals would be steeped and thus release medicine.
Rick Simpson tells us, “History calls hemp a panacea, which means cure- all. From my experience of seeing hemp oil used for various medical conditions, I too call hemp a cure-all. Hemp is useful in the treatment of practically any disease or condition; it promotes full-body healing. From our experience the oil is also very beneficial for most skin conditions; it can be mixed with skin creams or even suntan lotion. Wouldn’t it be nice to go out in the sun and not have to worry about skin cancer? From my experience, the oil is effective in the treatment of all types of skin cancers, and the same holds true for internal cancers and other medical conditions.”
Simpson continues, “Hemp oil seems to work on all types of cancer, and I am not aware of any type of cancer that it would not be effective for. Put simply, cancer is just mutating cells; THC kills mutating cells. When hemp oil is ingested as a cancer medication, the THC in the oil causes a buildup of a fat molecule called ceramide. When ceramide comes in contact with cancer cells it causes programmed cell death of the cancer cells while doing no harm to healthy cells. I have seen hemp oil relieve pain from bone cancer that morphine had no effect on. I have provided hemp oil to many people with chronic pain and some of the results have been amazing. It is not unusual to receive reports from people within days telling me that they are no longer in pain. Hemp oil has the ability to eliminate pain, but it also goes to work healing the problem that is causing the pain. Pharmaceuticals do nothing to heal the underlying cause of pain; they simply mask the pain. Realistically, there is no comparison between hemp oil and pharmaceuticals; most pain medications supplied by our medical system are dangerous, addictive, and deadly, while hemp oil presents no addiction or danger to the patient.”
Marijuana increases our chances of beating cancer; it is that simple. Mainstream research leads us to the undeniable conclusion that marijuana is the premier cancer medicine humanity has been looking for and has finally found.
Contemporary oncologists are interested in it for its ability to mitigate the nasty side effects of chemo and radiation therapy. They never think of it as an important part of the actual treatment of cancer. The same could be said about sodium bicarbonate (baking soda).
Cannabis Science Inc., a pioneering U.S. biotech company developing pharmaceutical cannabis products, reported in early 2012 their success with self-medicated cannabis patients treating themselves for cancer. The case is graphic. One of the patient’s physicians said it was the worst case of squamous cell carcinoma cancer he had ever seen.
Scientific trials have for decades documented the anti-cancer properties of cannabis and its constituents, yet it took the National Institute of Cancer, a component of the U.S. government’s National Institutes of Health, awhile to finally acknowledge the herb’s therapeutic utility for patients living with disease or suffering from the adverse side effects of cancer treatment.
