MEDICAL MARIJUANA FOR CANCER PATIENTS
What is Cancer?
Cancer is a group of diseases – where mutant cells, essentially with now non-human DNA proliferate unchecked. In healthy people, mutant cells are killed or realize they commit suicide. Common defects in immune system identification of rogue DNA lies at the core of the Cancer.
Today, there are a lot of scientific findings which show that cancer stem cells are fundamental in the cause of cancer. Big cancerous tumors grow so fast that the affected organ or tissue ceases to function and impinge on other organs, blood vessels and nerves, all of which contribute to suffering and death.
“The active components in cannabis cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of cancer to spread. Most common side effects include pain relief, increase in appetite and inflammation reduction.” Dr. Wakefield at Harvard

How Cannabinoids of Medical Marijuana Treat Cancer
Medicinal effects of Cannabinoids act as a physical key – opening the body’s CB1 and CB2 (endoCannabinoid) receptors. Each type of Cannabinoid has its own character of modulation. There is another study confirming the new efficacy of Cannabinoid Medications every week.
Animal, human and cellular studies have shown that Cannabinoids:
- Stop cells from dividing
- Triggering cell death – apoptosis
- Preventing new blood vessels from supplying tumors
- Assisting cellular waste disposal – autophagy
- Reducing, stopping cells from moving or invading neighboring tissue
How Medical Marijuana helped battle Cancer – Patient Testimonial
“Joey Perez, the 10-year-old boy, was slowly dying. The drugs he’d had since the age of 5 had damaged him beyond repair – the side effects were going to kill him. Joey’s mother reported on the Good Morning Show, that Medical Cannabis saved her son’s life. The diagnosis gave him 6 months. In 12 months, he gained more than 40 pounds, his tantrums and panic attacks disappeared.“
Medical Marijuana Doctors on Cancer
Medical Doctor at California PMC has determined that CBD has the ability to switch off the DNA that causes many types of Cancer in people. Cannabis component CBD is the second-most abundant cannabinoid in Medical Marijuana (in most cannabis strains) – and not psychoactive as its cousin THC.
Cannabinoids inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, slowing cell growth, and suffocating the blood vessels that feed tumors while protecting normal cells. Cannabinoids reduce inflammation of the colon and other body tissues which reduces the risk of acquiring colon and other cancers.
“We started by researching breast cancer, but now we’ve found that cannabidiol (CBD) works with many kinds of aggressive cancers – brain, prostate – any kind in which these high levels of ID-1 are present.” – Dr. Pierre Despre
How Medical Cannabis Kills Cancer: Researchers Highlights from Clinical Studies
- Marijuana Cannabidiol (CBD) modulates estrogen receptors – induces cell programmed death in breast cancer.
- Marijuana’s THC damaged or killed liver cancer cells.
- CBD and THC may make chemotherapy – with drugs like temozolomide = more effective.
- CBD may make chemotherapy more effective – by increasing the rate of cancer cell – without harming normal cells.
