Does cannabis cure cancer? If you were to believe the pharmaceutical industry and their mainstream media pawns, the answer would be an emphatic “No.” According to them, the health benefits of cannabis are nothing more than myths conjured up by hopeful stoners. Yet, there are countless stories of people who’ve successfully treated any number of debilitating health conditions with cannabis — ranging from cancer to seizure disorders.

After years of tight regulations hampering research, scientists are now beginning to take a closer look at the purported benefits of cannabis, and what they’re finding is that this plant medicine really works. Recent research from Penn State shows that cannabinoid compounds can prevent cancer cell growth.

Cannabis compounds kill colon cancer

Recently published research from scientists at Penn State College of Medicine reveals that the medicinal compounds found in marijuana can actually stop cancer cells right in their tracks. The researchers studied 370 different cannabinoid compounds and their effects on seven different colon cancer cell lines.

What they found was that two of the most well-known cannabinoids, THC and CBD, had little to no effect on cancer cells — but, at least 10 lesser known compounds were found to display potent anticancer activity.

Kent Vrana, chair of the Department of Pharmacology at Penn State College of Medicine, says now that these anticancer compounds have been identified, understanding how they work will be the next step.

“The 10 compounds we found to be effective fall into three classes, so they’re similar to each other but with small changes,” Vrana says.

“We know how one of them works, which is by inhibiting the division of cells in general. We also found that the most potent and effective compounds don’t seem to work through traditional marijuana receptors, although we’re not sure of the exact mechanism yet,” he added.

Vrana states that once scientists understand how the compounds work, they can begin exploring how to make a synthetic version that’s even more potent. No plant medicine is safe from Big Pharma’s clutches, apparently.

Synthetic medicine is inferior to whole plants

Many of the synthetic chemicals used in modern medicine are based on compounds and nutrients found in nature. While the mainstream medical community believes that these adulterated compounds are “better” than the real thing, science tells us otherwise.

Much evidence indicates that in many cases, synthetic nutrients can actually be harmful to the body. For example, the human body typically doesn’t use synthetic nutrients and compounds as well as naturally occurring ones. As Healthline notes, this is partially because natural nutrients never occur by themselves.

Nutrients act in concert to increase activity and absorption — and the same holds true for the cannabis plant. Synthetics lack these additional “bonus” nutrients, and studies show the body simply cannot use them effectively.

In cannabidiol (CBD) research, scientists have already shown that a CBD extract made directly from the whole cannabis plant is superior to a synthetic, single-molecule CBD extract.

Despite the veritable mountain of evidence that cannabis has medicinal properties and can be used medicinally as-is to treat a wide range of diseases and conditions, legislators and pharma shills refuse to acknowledge the scientific reality that is medical marijuana. Accepting medical marijuana would give credence to the idea of “plant medicine” as a whole — and cannabis as a medicine is dangerous enough to the pharma industry by itself.

The truth is that there is nothing Big Pharma can do to make cannabis, or any other plant-derived medicine, “better.” All they can do is synthesize compounds we used to be able to grow in our own backyard, patent them and then sell them to us at a sky-high profit margin. (1 image)

Cancer cells in the colon have the same genetic identity as Clintons.
Does this mean we can immunize the nation from them?

I quit drinking & drugs in November of 1991, and got colon cancer a month later.

It's still worth it, glad that I did.

Vicki Batts actually “fixed” her article.

From the article by Vicki Batts on this thread:

Recently published research from scientists at Penn State College of Medicine reveals that the medicinal compounds found in marijuana CAN actually stop cancer cells right in their tracks. [Boldness Added].
Can in a modal verb meaning the ability to be able to do something or to know how to do something.

From the article in Science Daily at https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/02/190206091420.htm:

Penn State College of Medicine researchers say some cannabinoid compounds MAY actually inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells in the lab. [Boldness Added].
May is a modal verb saying that there is a possibility that something is true or that there is a possibility something will happen.

As a result of well-documented confirmation bias, the drug culture tends to overvalue anecdotal stories that supports their beliefs and undervalue evidence that that contradicts them. Druggies will always filter out inconvenient truths. As a continuing result of this malady, their opinions solidify over time, and it becomes increasingly harder to disrupt their established patterns of faulty thinking. Druggies definitely have a different perspective towards truth.

Ah yes, ”grasshopper” – there is a significant difference in the use of the modal verbs can and may.

But proponents read that as "marijuana stops cancer". So we should legalize marijuana. Which is why Deckard posted it.

If we elect to make marijuana illegal, than why not do the same with the cocaine and other street drugs that our licensed friendly doctors use on us on a daily basis? And I know they use them. The only reason why you choose to make it illegal has really nothing to do with a moral issue but one concerning high competition with the pharmaceutical industry. They don't like competition but rather to monopolize the drug industry. That's the dirty secret they don't even teach us in micro economics 101.

but one concerning high competition with the pharmaceutical industry.

The pharmaceutical industry produces drugs that have to pass rigorous FDA standards costing tens of millions of dollars in peer-reviewed studies, drug trials, drug interaction research, and proper dosage and frequency. The drug is then prescribed by a licensed doctor and distributed by a licensed pharmacist for a limited period of time before a refill can be approved by the doctor.

The pharmaceutical industry simply asks that marijuana go through the same procedure they go through. You don't agree? You think we should make an exception for marijuana? Some quack says, "Smoke this 'til you feel better"?

Yes, "Fixed." But according to what authority?

Just because some people prefer to use cannibis aka "pot" recreationally, you can't just willy-nilly dismiss the medicinal aspect, with is legit.

If the evidence stated was "anecdotal" as per your edit, then why would the National Cancer Institute (NCI) bother listing cannibis and its derivatives as "Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM)."?

According to the Washington Independent, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) changed its website on March 17th and for the first time listed cannabis as a Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM). At that time, the NCI website read:

"The potential benefits of medicinal Cannabis for people living with cancer include antiemetic effects, appetite stimulation, pain relief, and improved sleep. In the practice of integrative oncology, the health care provider may recommend medicinal Cannabis not only for symptom management but also for its possible direct antitumor effect."

And just in case the issue of medical efficacy was in question, NCI further stated that:

"Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years prior to its current status as an illegal substance."

By your definition, IF you are taking a single drug in your life, you are technically a "druggie." And THAT is the truth as well.

No they don't. They extract from the marijuana plant thus making it less effective. If you want genuine healing process, you don't go through a drug process where if one drug is not effective well then you go to the doctor to take their suggestion for another drug. You become nothing but their unknowingly guinea pig. If you want genuine results, you research the drug yourself. You don't rely on drug manufacturers to tell you otherwise. They are not in the drug business to make people well. They are in it for two reasons only. 1) To keep people addicted (2) keep those addicts to purchase more They operate in the same mindset as the tobacco industry does.

They extract a particular cannabinoid, purify it, concentrate it, and test it in controlled (and repeatable) studies. That's called "research".

Your solution is, "Smoke this and see if it helps".

Do you ever tired of engaging in meandering toward oblivion with your semantic macro-minutiae?

Engaging in the study of Semantics is important and the one main reason is to look at Semantics as understanding the meaning and then it becomes focal to the point of communicating – which is an important factor in how society is organized and functions. No, I never tire of showing that structural ambiguity can give reason for the importance of Semantic research.

By your definition, IF you are taking a single drug in your life, you are technically a "druggie." And THAT is the truth as well.

How can “THAT” be the “truth as well’ when I have never stated my definition of druggie either technically or in any other manner? Merriam-Webster defines a druggie as “a person who habitually uses drugs.” I will accept THAT as truth.

NCI has LISTED evidence-based PDQ information summaries for ALL of the integrative, alternative, and complementary therapies listed here.

NCI is simply showing the complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) medical products and practices that are not part of standard medical care and they are LISTING Cannabis and Cannabinoids (PDQ®) as one of those.

NCI is in NO way suggesting, endorsing or approving the use of cannabis and cannabinoids in any manner whatsoever.

Voodoo is not shown in the NCI list of integrative, alternative, and complementary therapies.

Furthermore, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it did not approve any herbal medicine or health supplement as a cure for cancer and people [are] warned against ‘voodoo’ cancer cures.”

Now why would they want to purify cannabis from its raw form? Raw form is pure cannabis. Then when you concentrate it with some other crap, you devalue its purpose. That's not research. That's pseudo-science.

And you damn right I'd rather smoke it and see if it helps. I don't want any other concentrated crap in my system. In many hospices, where people are terminally ill, marijuana is the way to help them overcome their pain.

Furthermore, the Food and Drug Administration

FDA-Approved-1

The FDA is responsible for part of the culture of corruption that has engulfed Washington DC for over a century.

Study: FDA is responsible for up to 73 million deaths since 2005

In the field of medicine, the Food and Drug Administration is the most influential organization in the world. Many nations look to the FDA for leadership and advice. Unfortunately, that power has amplified the damage done by the Washington DC-based, mammoth bureaucracy. Many leading experts in the food and healthcare industry agree: the FDA is responsible for an immeasurable amount of pain and suffering world-wide.

According to the FDA, around 862,000 people have died because of FDA-approved drugs, vaccines, and devices since 2005. However, also according to the FDA, their statistics are definitely far from accurate.

A former FDA Commissioner even admitted to underreporting numbers by as much as 100 fold!

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

That works out to 5 million per year.

"The most recent CDC data (2014) reveals that annually there were 2,626,418 deaths registered in the U.S."

So, 2.6 million people die each year, and 5 million of them are caused by the FDA. Got it.
