Cannabis Cures Breast Cancer (2019 update)

in #cannabislast year

Hold onto your tits, here's proof that cannabis cures breast cancer!

A few years ago, @Drutter and I made Power to the Patients Episode 4: Cannabis Cures Breast Cancer. Since October is breast cancer awareness month, we updated the video with some new research, so take a look!


Studies published since then are a goldmine of information, especially this study below: South African researchers studied the effects of gold in combination with cannabidiol (CBD) to treat breast cancer!



CBD has also been extensively studied in breast cancer, but even when CBD is promising, full-spectrum oil high in CBD, rather than a "pure" isolate, proves time and time again to be the best cancer remedy.



If that doesn't perk you up, here's an updated list of the best cannabis for breast cancer studies published within the last few years with links and full citations.

fuck your pink ribbons we got cannabis.JPG


This is our favourite Power to the Patients video, our favourite Cannabis Cures Cancer video, and probably just our all-time favourite @Drutter and @MediKatie collaboration!

I didn't want to be a boob, so I resteemed this post...
oops not a very funny pun. (not enough punny fun.)

MediKatie, this is a perfect addition to the main video (!
And that ribbon is great. We should all wear one for October!

I've linked to this post from mine here. Anyone wanting to see this material in video form should check it out! (11mins)
