Thanks to its healing properties, hemp plant has been used in elixirs and teas for thousands of years, and now hemp oil is listed as a valid cancer treatment on the cancer protocol by the International Medical Verities Association among magnesium chloride, iodine, selenium, Alpha Lipoic Acid and sodium bicarbonate.
When Wallace Rose was diagnosed with cancer his first choice wasn’t hemp oil. But when the cancer progressed to terminal stage, he decided to give it a shot since he didn’t have anything to lose. Soon after, the oil brought new hoe to the Rose family.
But he’s merely a drop in the ocean of people cured by this incredible treatment. Rick Simpson is yet another successful case. He was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma back in 2003. When he came across an article that suggested that the THC found in cannabis can kill cancer cells in mice, he started extracting oil from the plant.
Rick would apply the solution on bandages and then place them on the skin. After four days the cancer was gone. After his success, he published the instructions on how to make the oil.
As the number of success stories continues to grow, researchers are continuing to collect evidence and learn how cannabinoids can impact different cancer diagnosis. Cannabinoids have elicited anti-cancer effects in many different in vitro and in vivo models. Recent studies have focused on the role of cannabinoid receptor antagonists in treating breast cancer.
If you consider on using cannabis as a cancer treatment, bear in mind that the oil is not the same as smoking the plant. When you smoke it, fungal spores, if present in marijuana, may pose a threat to already immunocompromised patients. Plus, black market marijuana often contains pesticide residues and other adulterants.
