There Are Now 100 Scientific Studies Proving Cannabis Cures Cancer

in cannabis •  4 months ago

Despite the fact that countless individuals have used cannabis oil to heal their afflictions, the U.S. Cancer Institute lists cannabis as a ‘cure’ for cancer on its website, and a multitude of veterans credit the herb with helping them ditch opioids and alleviate symptoms of PTSD, the marijuana plant remains classified as a Schedule I drug in the United States.

In fact, in most countries around the world, use of the herb and its components for medicinal and recreational purposes remains to be illegal. This continues, regardless of the fact that 0 people die from using the herb each year. In contrast, 30,722 die from alcohol poisoning and 38,329 from abusing pharmaceuticals annually (according to 2014 data).

Some activists, such as Rick Simpson, have suggested that the plant is still illegal in the U.S. on a Federal level because of its multitude of uses. A part of the plant known as hemp can be used for clothing, food, and industrial purposes, and components of the ‘flower’ known as marijuana can inspire creativity, free-thinking and, of course, contribute to healing.

It is an injustice that individuals are refused access to the herb considering it is 100% natural and has been cultivated for thousands of years. Additionally, at least 100 studies prove that the plant can combat one of the most frightening modern afflictions: cancer. As 1 in 2 women and 1 in 3 men are predicted to develop cancer in their lifetimes, it is past time the herb lose its stigma and Schedule I status so that citizens worldwide might benefit from its many properties.

Following are 100 studies proving cannabis to be an all-natural cancer killer:

Hmmm, Interesting but I am still not sure how it promotes creativity, is it like going to washroom and when you have an urge that moment you mind goes to places it never has before, sorry I am noob because I have never smoked weed before.

Check out my article about the new law in Luxembourg where cannabis has also been legalized for medical use.

Thanks for this great list, resteemed!

wow, great coverage of all of these studies. it is truly a remarkable plant.

Very good post... And all very true .... I hope soon all can understand this.

I knew it

Like many of the links above. Scientists don't prove but rather seek to find significant supporting evidence for the therapeutic properties of cannabis and cannabinoids.

I would like to see abstracts from phase I/II clincial trails before getting hyped up. A lot of bench science can get published with little to no financial follow-up to allow for larger trials to recreate initial findings.

A lot of the above links may be case studies of animal or in vitro experiments. Which is great but is NOT in humans which takes a lot of funding and time.

I'm all for the advancement of this research but it looks to be a ways from clinical trials in humans and then marketing for the masses.

Just want people to be cautiously optimistic about these types of abstracts and posts.

Agreed, its easy to get excited about the potential that MJ can cure cancer but without more specifics on what cancers and in what human populations groups, its still way too soon to get overly excited. More research definitely is needed, and soon!!! with the rapidly moving legalization across the US in particular.

Thanks for some sober thoughts here, @massmedicinals!

Lol thanks for the support.

After posting I thought I was going to get hit with a ton of negative commentary.

Cheers!
