The medical scientists have known about the beneficial effects of cannabinoid compounds over cancerous cell since the 1970s’. Besides the scientific proofs, thousands of personal experiences witness of the healing powers of cannabis. In January 2014, Sharon Kelly was diagnosed with Stage IV non-small lung cancer.
Even though she was told that there is a certain therapeutic drug called Tarceva that could extend her life, it wouldn’t be more than 9 months.. Eventually, Sharon found out about cannabis oil and its powers. In February 2014, she started utilizing the oil alongside the Tarceva. Sharon was able to increase her intake by adding cannabis suppositories as well. This combination showed very powerful and promising results, so by September 3rd, 2014, a scan showed Sharon was cancer free.
In February 2015, tests showed that cancer cells reemerged in Sharon’s lungs, but these were a lot smaller than the previous ones and she decided to use only an aggressive treatment with cannabis extract. Once again , she managed to beat the cancer. Her experience has made her one of the most powerful activists in the Australian medicinal cannabis community. Health researchers for the US government claim that cannabinoids – the active ingredients in cannabis – can inhibit the illness by causing cell death and blocking key blood vessels needed by tumours to grow.
According to the health researchers for the US government, cannabinoids – the active ingredients in cannabis – can inhibit the illness by causing cell death and blocking key blood vessels needed by tumours to grow. They claim that studies in rodents show cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells – while still protecting normal cells.
Even the National Cancer Institute (NCI), one of the federal government sponsored agencies, finally admitted that cannabis kills cancer. They found that, “cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal calls”.
