Cannabis Oil- Cancer Cure?

Snake oil or Science?
Snake oil or Science?

If you follow cannabis news, or news in general, you’ve probably heard about cannabis oil. It’s touted as a cure for cancer and a panacea for any number of ailments. I just searched “cannabis oil” on Google and it generated almost 15 million results. States across the country are legalizing it; even conservative states are behind the push. Click here for a list of states that have legalized cannabis oil in some form or fashion. If you click on the link you’ll see that cannabis oil, also referred to as “CBD oil”, “Simpson’s oil”, or “Hemp oil”, has primarily been legalized in politically conservative states. Although this may seem odd at first, it’s mostly a defensive maneuver- political cover- to avoid addressing full legalization of marijuana. For example, my home state of North Carolina was the 10th state to legalize hemp oil. Great, right? Wrong. It’s been relegated to a strict study specifically for adolescents who suffer from particularly bad cases of epilepsy. And, there’s no legal mechanism in place for actually obtaining the oil. Clearly, this is strategic. Politicians can say, “We legalized CBD oil for medical purposes. We don’t need to revisit the ‘marijuana issue.'”

In any event, cannabis oil is the current rage. Sure, the San Francisco Weekly may have said in a recent article, “[i]f marijuana were discovered in the Amazon today, it’d be front-page news worldwide, a miracle drug.” (The article was actually really good. Click here to read it.) But, in reality, cannabis oil is, or almost is, “front page news.” It’s everywhere.

So, what is it? Cannabis oil is, in the simplest terms, distilled weed. An ounce of really good, highly concentrated cannabis oil can be extracted from a pound of marijuana. The object of the distillation process is to remove all plant matter so that the resulting oil is nothing more or less than the concentrated cannabinoids from the plant- the THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids that occur naturally in cannabis and which evidence suggests our body has evolved to process and which may have significant health benefits. (Our endocannabinoid system is both a fascinating and cutting edge story. But that topic is for a later blog post. If you’re interested, clicking here is a good place to start.) The distillation is done by using a solvent- naphtha, petroleum ether, butane, isopropyl alcohol, and others, depending on the intended result and the degree to which the extractor is interested in health issues.

A good extraction of cannabis oil is powerful. The initial dose is the size of a grain of rice. A gram can make even experienced users dizzy and fully “high.” But the anecdotal evidence of its efficacy, particularly with respect to cancer, is overwhelming. The American Cancer Society states the following, right on its website: “[S]cientists reported that THC and other cannabinoids such as CBD slow growth and/or cause death in certain types of cancer cells growing in laboratory dishes. Some animal studies also suggest certain cannabinoids may slow growth and reduce spread of some forms of cancer.” Of course, about ⅔ of the 15 million websites you’ll encounter on a Google search of “cannabis oil” will tell you how to cure cancer with CBD oil, but this quote came directly from the American Cancer Society. That’s no small thing.

And all of those hippy, dippy websites about curing cancer with hemp oil- are they wrong? Truthfully, we don’t know. The US government, through its agent the DEA, severely limits clinical studies of cannabis. Most proposed studies are approved only if they are likely to show harmful effects of cannabis. Most evidence of CBD oil curing cancer is anecdotal. But, oncologists across the country are quietly beginning to recommend that patients try cannabis oil along with their routinely prescribed chemotherapy, radiation, and other traditional treatments. According to one well-known cannabis oil dispenser in California, of the 26 Stage 4 cancer patients that were referred to her by their oncologist, only one died- an off the charts success rate of 96%. Anecdotal or not, that figure is an eye-opener.

Of course, there is well documented evidence of cannabis treating the nausea associated with chemotherapy treatments. I can personally attest to the benefits of ingesting marijuana during chemo. But a possible cure for cancer is an entirely different thing, one that we should immediately embrace and research.

I dedicate this post to Gawain Mainwaring, a kind, brave, and inspirational man. May your journey be long and joyful.

    My sister was once diagnosed of breast cancer. she did chemotherapy and radiation many times and it did not work but rather weaken her immune system and she was unable to move from one place to another. She was living in pain for 2 years until i contacted the National Cancer Institute through email [email protected] to purchase the cannabis oil. After using this cannabis oil medication for treatment for 40 days, there was great changes in her condition and she continue to use the cannabis oil for the time duration that was advised by the institute.

  6. My name is Margaretta and I am a 6 year breast cancer survivor. My story began November 2016 when I felt a slight burning sensation in my right breast. I was working as a daycare provider and neglected to do anything, hoping the burning sensation was temporary. On New Years Eve, 2016, the pain was so severe that I scheduled a mammogram the first week of 2017. A few days later I received a letter telling me to return for a second test. A few more days passed and I received a letter telling me that there were suspicious findings on my film that needed further testing. My previous mammogram was in October 2016. What could possibly be wrong?
    I had nowhere to turn. I did not know what to do because the place that did the mammogram only told me to ask my primary care doctor. At that time I did not have a primary doctor.
    I called my older sister and she told me to go to a gynecologist. I explained the situation to the gynecologist and immediately she found a doctor to give me a biopsy. I was so frightened, not knowing what to expect, still hoping that there was a mistake on my films. The following day I received a call from my gynecologist asking me to come back.
    Two doctors spoke with me. “I am sorry, you have breast cancer,” they said. Here came the tears; the doctors left the room and gave me time to cry alone, as I felt as if nothing else was ever going to be the same. The next day I was scheduled for an MRI, which confirmed the breast cancer. I went home and told my two sisters and my mom. I then met with the breast surgeon who scheduled me for a pet scan, muga scan, chest x-rays, bone scans,blood tests, and, oh yes, more painful biopsies. My test results showed that I had stage 2, estrogen positive breast cancer. I cried all day, One day I was chatting with a Friend on Facebook and I explained to him what am passing through, he now recommend me to a Woman that cure his Mothers Prolonged Cancer disease as well, so I decided to massage the woman the woman told me about the oil I need to buy and other medications I paid for it and it was delivered to my residence without custom search I used the oil and all the medications, I am here to tell you all that as I am written this message, I am now a Cancer free and also a survivor. please you can reach the woman via her email; [email protected] if you are encountering the same problems or any issues of any kind. Feel free to message her.
