With this new post related to health we want to provide you with two news stories that have been repeatedly published in multiple pages, but also inserted in our blog to share them with our readers based on their high importance of general interest; and, especially, for people affected by cancer.
Please Share this post with as many people as you know and help to spread awareness about how Marijuana cures Cancer
Marijuana Medicinal Usage in Ayurveda
The magical medicinal properties of Marijuana (or Bhang in Sanskriti) were described by ayurvedic physicians thousands of years ago in India. However, this medicinal plant has been put into the category of “Synthetic Drug” despite being naturally produced in Mother Nature.
Modern medicine views Marijuana as a Drug despite knowing its medicinal properties which are known to cure deadly diseases like Cancer.
What is the Difference between Marijuana and Hemp ?
Both marijuana and hemp come from the same species of plant called “Cannabis Sativa L”.
Hemp was originally cultivated in Taiwan nearly 10,000 years ago. Ancient cultivators of the cannabis plant recognized that it was dioecious meaning that it had dual characteristics.
Cultivators specifically grew one variety of the cannabis plant to make it tall and durable. This is what we know as industrial hemp. After discovering that the flower buds of the cannabis plant had psychoactive effects, cultivators then began to separate the hemp plants from the flowering plants in order to isolate their “medicinal” characteristics, these plants closely resembled what we call marijuana plants today.
How Hemp Oil (Oil Extracted from Hemp (Marijuana Plant) Seeds) Cures Cancer and Why No One Knows
Cannabis extract medicine, also known as “hemp oil” when referred to the type first started by Rick Simpson, is a concentrated cannabis formulation that is ingested orally.
By eating large amounts of the oil for a period of three to six months, almost any illness you can imagine can be cured or completely controlled.
Biggest Proof on How Marijuana (Cannabis) Cures Cancer
This is possible because cannabis medicine works fundamentally through the endocannabinoid system, the super-regulatory system of our body that maintains homeostasis in the other systems.
It is widely known and observable that people with cancer, chronic pain, inflammatory conditions, and other conditions use Hemp oil with remarkable effectiveness.
Scientific Evidence on How Marijuana (Hemp Oil) cures cancer
There are hundreds & hundreds of scientific studies to prove that cannabinoids like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), as well as whole plant formulations, are effective against virtually any disease imaginable.

Why Marijuana is labeled as a Drug and Banned in some regions of the world ?
The ban on Marijuana has been imposed keeping in mind that it can be misused as a drug. But, what about Alcohol, Tobacco and various other similar “licensed drugs.” People who want to abuse the medicinal properties are known to drink 5 Bottles of Common Cold Syrups, just to enjoy that feeling of intoxication in the absence of drugs. Does that mean Cold Syrups should be banned?
82 studies on the effectiveness of marijuana against cancer
Cancer represents one of the leading causes of death in industrialized countries. Until now the treatments offered by the pharmaceutical industry have, for the most part, a limited efficiency, accompanied by significant toxicity and very undesirable side effects. It is known that the marijuana plant can naturally help and relieve the symptoms of cancer and chemotherapy: reducing pain, nausea, vomiting, improving appetite, mood, sleep, relationships with the environment and we know the importance of having a good quality of life during the treatment process.
So we can now see something even more interesting: some cannabinoids in the marijuana plant have a remedial action against various forms of cancer. Several patient testimonials are now available on social networks, particularly in the United States where therapeutic marijuana is accessible much more easily than in Europe. The most frequent examples of healing concern cases of leukemia, as well as brain tumors (gliomas), usually in children, even in infants.
But these numerous testimonies are not enough to convince the medical and scientific community which needs serious studies to confirm these claims. To rectify the situation, here is a list (not exhaustive) of 68 international scientific publications, from the best research laboratories, demonstrating the efficiency of cannabinoids present in the marijuana plant in cancer treatment.

To conclude, we can highlight in these publications that the efficiency of cannabinoids against cancer depends on the dose used: the higher the dose, the more important the action. As it is difficult to obtain high and constant blood concentrations of cannabinoids consuming the marijuana plant in a common way (smoking, vaporizing …) most patients use cannabinoid extractions, the most famous of which is known as Rick Simpson’s oil.
Efficiency of cannabinoids against cancer
Marijuana enriched in CBD; this non-psychoactive cannabinoid seems to have the best anti-tumor properties.
