12 Reports that Cannabis is an Effective Cancer Treatment

The utilization of cannabis for pharmaceutical purposes dates back to 2900 B.C. Fu Hsi, Chinese Emperor, at the time, refers to Ma (cannabis) for medicinal functions. By 1850, cannabis was touted as a medicinal therapy for cholera, convulsions, dysentery, gout, incontinence, leprosy, tonsillitis and more. In 1906, President Roosevelt began to require labeling of cannabis. Massachusetts made cannabis illegal in 1911, with other states soon forbidding marijuana also. The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws formed in 1970 with the mission to legalize marijuana. The following recent twelve personal and institutional findings report cannabis as an effective cancer treatment.

  1. Brain Cancer:  In combination with radio therapy, cannabis extract has been shown to annihilate malignant brain tumors, according to an article in Science Daily.
  2. Breast Cancer:  In November 2014, ABC News reported implications that cannabis has the ability to halt the spread of metastatic breast cancer.
  3. Cervical Cancer:  Cannabis derived compounds are substantiated to have potential therapeutic benefit for the treatment of cervical cancer according to Dr. Andrew Weil.
  4. Colon Cancer:  The National Institute of Health has published a study siting medical marijuana as a cure for colon cancer.
  5. Endometrial Cancer:  Maria Guerrero reports that she had an aggressive endometrial tumor that was quickly spreading, until cannabis oil cured the malignancy.

  7. Liver Cancer:  Michael Cutler attributes cannabis for curing his terminal liver cancer.
  8. Lung Cancer:  Researchers at Harvard University state that malignant lung tumor growth is drastically reduced by medical marijuana.
  9. Melanoma:  An article in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology recounts findings that THC and cannabidiol reduces the sustainability of melanoma cells.
  10. Pancreatic Cancer:  Cannabis exhibits a growth inhibiting effect on pancreatic adenocarcinomas and reduces the spread of pancreatic tumor cells.
  11. Prostate Cancer:  According to an article in the British Journal of Cancer, Madrid researchers have experienced positive outcomes with cannabinoids on prostate cancer.
  12. Testicular Cancer:  THC is associated with regression of malignant tumors in testicular cancer.

Conclusion:  The Twenty-First century medical community is beginning to take heed to knowledge from our ancient ancestors. There are numerous medical purposes for cannabis including the treatment for many types of cancer. Continued research for the effects of cannabis on the treatment of cancer is needed.
