People like Ronnie Smith and Rick Simpson are my hero. I've put together this information after years of experience and research to share with my family and friends. I figured it would be useful here. I realize this is still a highly sensitive, controversial and stigmatized subject, so I ask you to read with an open mind and do your own research.
For those of you that have a loved one, child or friend suffering from cancer or other debilitating diseases including opiate addiction, diabetes, epilepsy and autism, this information can be life saving. If anyone has serious questions, feel free to ask. I would be happy to help in any way that I can. AS MUCH AS I WOULD LIKE TO, I CANNOT SUPPLY CANNABIS OIL. Unfortunately people like me are still put in prison for healing the sick. However, I will point you in the right direction though I always suggest growing your own plants and making your own oil.
It's no secret that I have been a proponent of Cannabis for more than half my life. Up until age 13, a team of doctors had prescribed me nearly 20 different medications to treat my physical/mental illness and chemical imbalances. Those included asthma, ADD, childhood depression, Bi-polar disorder and Tourette Syndrome. Tourettes being the most severe which is what I believe led to my depression and mood swings. Not to mention the horrible side effects all those medications had on me including several hospitalizations. When I was 13, I began smoking pot every day, took myself off all medications and have continued using cannabis in one form or another to this day. Anyone who has known me long enough can attest to my progress, the Tourettes (tics) are basically none existent. My aliments that I treat now include probable PTSD (undiagnosed) as well as chronic muscle and joint pain from various injuries and surgeries.
Over the last few years I have become much more active and educated in the medical Cannabis industry including the legality, history, science, chemistry and bio-chemistry that has been focused around this incredible plant. I've worked in the industry all over the world and am positioned to become one of the first medical cannabis processors or "canachefs' here in Maryland. Since this past summer, I have had personal experience and success witnessing Cannabis oil used as a treatment for several diseases including late stage cancer.
It is widely documented that anywhere from 10k - 20k people die EVERYDAY of cancer. Whether it be the progression of the disease or from complications do to the devastating side affects of the treatment used to fight the disease, usually chemotherapy or radiation. I started using Cannabis around the same time I lost my Uncle to cancer. He was my idol and since then, like many others, cancer has become a painful subject on which I feel strongly that alternative and more effective treatments should be made available. Cancer did not kill my uncle, complications from massive amounts of chemotherapy and HIV did. Cancer runs in my family and I feel it is my duty to have as much preventive information as possible on the subject.
In 1974 researchers at the Medical College of Virginia, who had been funded by the National Institute of Health to find evidence that cannabis damages the immune system, found instead that THC slowed the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice — lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia. The DEA quickly shut down the Virginia study and all further cannabis/tumor research.
President Gerald Ford put an end to all public cannabis research and granted exclusive research rights to major pharmaceutical companies, who set out — unsuccessfully — to develop synthetic forms of THC an CBD that would deliver all the medical benefits without the “high.” None of these preceded drugs have had the desired effect, although cannabis oil has. In 1983 the Reagan/Bush Administration tried to persuade American universities and researchers to destroy all 1966-76 cannabis research work, including compendiums in libraries. Vast amounts of valuable data was lost.
The war on drugs has been the largest holocaust in modern history. Think of the 10s of millions of people that could have been saved had the original study not been buried and the DEA formed. Thus allowing medical research to flourish uninhibited. If Cannabis were a completely unknown plant and it was found in the Amazon today. it would be hailed as "the most beneficial plant on the planet".
Cannabis is not a one stop shop or fix everything for everyone. Some people have been found to have an allergic reaction that required hospitalization. Although this is solely from inhalation and not oral ingestion. Over intoxication is extremely uncomfortable and lasts for several hours depending on dose. You feel like you're going to die, obviously you wont... Use extreme caution when ingesting oil or edible products! Think baby step when dosing and new to cannabis. In some users there are adverse side effects, all them mild and temporary. It should also be said that cannabis alone for treatment of cancer needs to be accompanied by other steps. A total lifestyle change is required with a cancer diagnosis. Raw vegan diet. Cut out ALL sugars. (Cancer cells feed on sugar and not ATP like healthy cells). Adjusting your body's PH levels to raise the alkalinity to above 7.36, ideally to 7.5 - 8.0 which is an inhospitable environment for the disease. Meditation also plays plays a key role in reducing stress which is a key contributor in creating free radicals which allow cancer to thrive. The calming effect of cannabis is one of its most powerful properties.
When securing cannabis oil to use as a treatment for a life threatening illness such as cancer here are a few things to remember:
The best way to guarantee a safe and potent medicine is to grow and process your own. If that is not an option always buy from reputable dispensary. Or preferably a co-op that has existing cancer patients in remission. Try to avoid buying oil without a lab report stating the cannabanoid content as well as a test for mold, bacteria, heavy metals, pesticides and fungi. Only buy FECO, full extract cannabis oil. This is made from the whole plant so it has all the vital cannabanoids as well as plenty of chlorophyll to help oxygenate the blood.
NEVER BUY CANNABIS OIL ONLINE! It will not be what you expect. CBD oil is completely different than FECO, which is what you want for curing cancer. Although this is useful for many other aliments. Cannabidiol is the worlds greatest anti inflammatory and has powerful antispasmodic properties. See links below. In my experience, the ideal ratio for curing cancer is 1:1 THC/CBD. Along with various amounts of the other 60+ cannabanoids. Lately more and more snake oil salesman have popped up and the majority of CBD oil on the market is garbage. Hemp oil is made from pressed hemp seeds and while having great nutritional value, it will not treat your disease. Use with caution
You can find high quality cannabis oil in any of the 23 medical legalized states as well as Washington DC. Seek and you shale find
This is the most reputable information I can find on the subject although 1000s of peer reviewed medical journal articles have been published. If you think my information is flawed or my links are bias I invite you to do you own research. In fact I highly encourage it. I challenge anyone to find one single credible piece of evidence showing any harmful effects because of using cannabis oil.
