Marijuana Proven to Kill Cancer in New Documentary


In “Weed the People,” filmmakers Abby Epstein and Ricki Lake take an unflinching look at the underground world of herbal medicine, where patients become experts on their own conditions and spend thousands of dollars on federally illegal medicines that are concocted in suburban kitchens.

Nowhere is this phenomenon more compelling than in the treatment of children, who are ignorant of the stigma of medicinal marijuana and whose parents will stop at nothing to help them. “Weed the People” looks beyond pot-activist propaganda and politics to reveal the legitimate science behind cannabis medicine and the compelling stories of ordinary people whose lives are inescapably caught up in the controversy.

Marijuana Proven to Kill Cancer in New Documentary

In July 2013 new parents Tracy and Josh Ryan received the devastating news that their 7-month-old baby Sophie had an inoperable brain tumor. The doctors prescribed chemotherapy as the only course of treatment, but could not guarantee it would work. Tracy Ryan felt intuitively that western medicine alone would not be enough to save her daughter. After intensive research, the Ryans began Sophie on a regimen of medicinal cannabis oils, hoping for a miracle.

The most fascinating area of cannabis research revolves around an element of the marijuana plant called Cannabidiol, (CBD) a powerful antioxidant that does not produce the psychotropic effects of THC. CBD shows a unique ability to kill cancer cells in early laboratory tests.

In 2003, the United States government filed a patent on CBD as an antioxidant and neuroprotectant useful in the treatment of disease. Yet this same government continues to classify marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug with “no currently accepted medical use,” preventing doctors from studying it. The government’s hypocritical position on CBD leaves patients like Sophie in unchartered waters, as they experimentally use an unregulated medicine that may be saving their lives.

    Safer alternatives to cannabinoids include cur-cumin found inside the spice turmeric, garlic, vitamin B17 (found within apricot seeds that are inside apricot stones) but no more than 6 per day, vitamin C and vitamin D3 (need 25OHD3 test to identify how to restore levels of D3 in the body).

    It is very important to work out what caused the cancer in the first place and remove or at the very least reduce the causative factors before trying to stop cancer. Avoid alcohol, tobacco, meat, dairy, wheat and gluten, BPA, BPS, mercury and aluminium, parabens. Avoid hallucinogenics. Avoid microwaved foods and drinks and no aspartame or artificial sweeteners. The sugar alternative Stevia is safe as is organic sugar in moderation.

    The U.S. Government patent mentioned is not on CBD, but on cannabinoids in general, of which CBD is only one of them. There are well over 80 cannabinoids already discovered in cannabis, and they all work synergistically together, and all are important, including THC, which kills cancer, too. The drug companies have isolated THC into such medicines as Marinol, but does not work as well as whole plant cannabinoids in concert with one another. Free the plant. And Big Pharma; keep your hands off of it; you too, MonSatano!
