The government did us a great favor by commissioning a research on cannabis to prove that it doesn’t have acceptable usage in medicine. This whole research was conducted with a purpose to break the narrow-minded beliefs concerning cannabis and how marijuana can be used as a medicine to even cure cancer.
However, the research backfired by proving that cannabis can actually kill cancer cells.
The team of scientists conducted the research at St. George’s University of London and found that the cannabidiol (CBD) and the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) weakened the brutality of cancer cells and made them more susceptible to radiation treatment.
Studies are showing that with the use of these joints combined with radiation therapy can lead to “dramatic reductions” of some fatal variations of brain cancer.
Treating Aggressive Cancers
“We’ve shown that smoking marijuana could play a role in treating one of the most aggressive cancers in adults.
wrote lead researcher Dr. Wai Liu, in a November 2014 op-ed for The Washington Post. “The results are promising… it could provide a way of breaking through tumors and saving more lives.”
“Recent animal studies have shown that marijuana can kill certain cancer cells and reduce the size of others,” the NIDA report said. However, evidence from one animal study suggests that extracts from whole-plant marijuana can shrink one of the most serious types of brain tumors. Research in mice showed that these extracts when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation.”
Corporations Are Against Healthy Marijuana
The research aided NIDA’s newfound pro-pot position. However the whole deal was introduced to the Congress and the House of Representatives. This is an attempt to legalize smoking marijuana on a national level.
Additionally, the bill should remove smoking cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act. This should allow people to smoke freely without violating federal statutes.
new federal research
This contract had classified cannabis as high potential for abuse, further being unsafe to use without proper medical supervision. And lastly they lied about cannabis not having any medical healing powers.
All new researches are claiming that cannabis is beneficial to our health and can especially help with cancer treatment. Finaly, many countries nowadays recognize marijuana as a potent medicine. Lastly we might be a step closer to the cannabis reform and its recognition.
