Cannabinoids in Cancer Treatment
THC has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration because medical science confirms its use in a broad variety of clinical situations. Specifically a THC-containing drug called Marinol is FDA approved though it does not come close to effectiveness of natural cannabinoids. Synthetic copies of natural substances rarely if ever maintain the same pharmacological effects as the original and we know this to be especially true in the case of marijuana and the chemicals the pharmaceutical companies manufacture to simulate natural cannabinoids.
Marijuana is a very special natural medicine that increases our chances of beating cancer, though contemporary oncologists are mostly interested in it for its ability to mitigate the nasty side effects of chemo and radiation therapy. They would never think of it as an important part of the actual treatment of cancer.
Marijuana, whose botanical name is cannabis, has been used by humans for thousands of years. It was classified as an illegal drug by many countries in the 20th century. But over the past two decades, there has been a growing movement to legalize it, primarily for medical purposes. Medical marijuana use has surged in the 15 states, including the District of Columbia, that allow its use.
The endocannabinoid system is a set of nerve receptors and related body chemicals that deal with appetite, pain-sensation, mood and memory. The interesting thing about the nerve receptors is that they respond to cannabinoids, one of the components of marijuana. There are many pain-relieving medications available today. Without doubt pain medications are a blessing for the temporary relief of pain as well as for the people who are dying and suffering. The safest pain relievers though are the cannabinoids, which can be used for longer periods of time with fewer side effects and dangers.
I have written several books on cancer and have been championing medical marijuana in my protocols for over five years. I am now writing a book on cannabinoid medicine and even I am surprised with the depth of research that resurrects the popular marijuana medicine from the 1800s and early 1900s.
Medical marijuana is now a cutting-edge medicine—one that has been around the block in the world of medicine and was especially popular in pharmacies until it was made illegal starting in 1913 just after the Federal Reserve Act was passed. The same interests that took control of the money supply took control of the pharmaceutical industry. These fast growing companies needed to make inexpensive drugs and pain medications illegal so they could legally get away with murder from the use of more dangerous synthetic drugs.
All research leads us to the undeniable conclusion that marijuana is the premier cancer medicine mankind has been looking for and finally has found. The problem is that there are special interests whose main interest is that real cures for cancer are never discovered. Actually it’s a mistake to think in terms of cure; it’s better to think in terms of effective treatment, for cancer is a very complicated phenomena with multiple and often concurrent causes. Treatments need to touch down on many if not all the causes to affect a permanent cure.
Everyone who knows of my work knows that I have never recommended single-shot cancer cures. In my book Sodium Bicarbonate – Rich Man’s Poor Man’s Cancer Treatment I made it very clear that I never recommend bicarbonate without magnesium salts or without iodine and several other important anticancer agents.
