Getting your license to grow marijuana can be a rewarding experience, this way you know what’s exactly in your cannabis. In Canada, you can now grow marijuana legally, and if you want to do so for medicinal purposes, it may be most effective and the most pure.
When it comes to cancer specifically, there are a number of interesting cases. One of which is highlighted in multiple blos on our website, including within this article.
This case is regarding a girl who underwent a series of unsuccessful conventional treatments over the course of 34 months – including a bone marrow transplant, aggressive chemotherapy and radiation therapy — after this doctors said she is ‘incurable,’ with the oncologist stating that she “suffers from terminal malignant disease,” expecting her condition to progress rapidly towards death.
The family, like all other families, received no other alternative suggestions from the oncologist. All they can recommend is pretty much radiation treatment and chemotherapy, which is unfortunate. So they decided to do research on their own and came across a paper published in Nature Reviews: Cancer in 2003 titled, “Cannibinoids: Potential Anti-Cancer Agents,” which was the catalyst for them administering oral cannabinoid extracts to the patient. According to the case report:
The family found promise in a product, made by Rick Simpson who had treated several cancers with hemp oil, an extract from the cannabis plant. Rick worked with the family to help them prepare the extract.*
The family used cannabis oil extract for the next 78 days, with Rick Simpson’s assistance, with regular monitoring of the blast cell count, the primary indicator of the malignant progression of the disease process.
The figure below:
The cannabis extract was effective at inhibiting the proliferation of the girl’s leukemia, without the highly toxic side effects of conventional treatment. This is one out of many cases.
It’s funny how multiple studies have shown cannabis absolutely obliterating cancer cells in a lab, but yet there has not been any funding for human clinical trials. When a pharmaceutical drug shows the same, and even less potential, clinical trials are set up an funded instantaneously.
This is why people are taking matters into their own hands, which is great to see, it always provides great incentives for people in Canada to acquire their medical marijuana license, or their marijuana producer license.
On day 78, the 14-year old passed away as a consequence of bleeding associated with bowel perforation, and ultimately the lasting adverse effects of the original 34 months of aggressive treatment she had underwent before the cannabis treatment.
In the discussion portion of the case report, the authors noted,
The results shown here cannot be attributed to the phenomenon of ‘spontaneous remission’ because a dose response curve was achieved… These results cannot be explained by any other therapies, as the child was under palliative care and was solely on cannabinoid treatment when the response was documented by the SickKids Hospital. The toxicology reports ruled out chemotherapeutic agents, and only showed her to be positive for THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) when she had ‘a recent massive decrease of WBC from 350,000 to 0.3’ inducing tumor lysis syndrome, as reported by the primary hematologist/oncologist at the SickKids Hospital.
Below is another video from a girl who also had success with Cannabis for her leukaemia. Mykala Comstock is her name.
