Excerpt from the documentary ‘What If Cannabinoids in Cannabis Cured Cancer & Other Diseases?’ ~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpVNtCyj2TY&list=PL4u4Uw3MvOh-o_NuJN3MTjGwPm4MS0d_N
US: National Cancer Institute – Cannabis and Cannabinoids
‘Cannabinoids may cause antitumor effects by various mechanisms, including induction of cell death, inhibition of cell growth, and inhibition of tumor angiogenesis invasion and metastasis. Two reviews summarize the molecular mechanisms of action of cannabinoids as antitumor agents. Cannabinoids appear to kill tumor cells but do not affect their nontransformed counterparts and may even protect them from cell death. For example, these compounds have been shown to induce apoptosis in glioma cells in culture and induce regression of glioma tumors in mice and rats, while they protect normal glial cells of astroglial and oligodendroglial lineages from apoptosis mediated by the CB1 receptor.’

More than 200 children under the age of 10 now have medical marijuana cards in Colorado, according to information received in a CBS4 records request. One woman in Colorado Springs now goes so far to say marijuana has cured her 4-year-old son’s cancer.
Sierra Riddle refused to use much of the chemotherapy that was ordered and now says her son Landon, 4, is cancer free. Even with the progress, the boy is still taking marijuana.
A study published by the University of East Anglia in 2014 showed evidence that THC the pain reducing and psychoactive part of cannabis is responsible for inhibiting and shrinking tumour cells in cancer patients.
Dr Peter McCormick, from UEA’s school of Pharmacy, said: “THC, the major active component of marijuana, has anti-cancer properties. This compound is known to act through a specific family of cell receptors called cannabinoid receptors. However, it was unclear which of these receptors were responsible for the anti-tumour effects of THC.
There are now over 20 recent studies that show cannabinoids from cannabis as an effective treatment for cancer. It is time we made our politicians aware and allowed those that need it as a medicine to have safer access to it here in the UK.
