HARVARD STUDY SAYS MARIJUANA CURES CANCER

HARVARD STUDY SAYS MARIJUANA CURES CANCER

Researchers at Harvard tested the chemical THC in both lab and mouse studies. They say this is the first set of experiments to show that the compound, THC actually activates naturally produced receptors to fight off lung cancer. The researchers suggest that THC or other designer agents that activate these receptors might be used in a targeted fashion to treat lung cancer.

Although a medical substitute of THC, known as Marinol, has been used as an appetite stimulant for cancer patients and other similar treatments, few studies have shown that THC might have anti-tumor activity.

*HERE IS THE INTERESTING PART*

The only clinical trial testing THC as a treatment against cancer growth was a recently completed British pilot study. For three weeks, researchers injected standard doses of THC into mice that had been implanted with human lung cancer cells, and found that tumors were reduced in size and weight by about 50 percent in treated animals compared to a control group. There was also about a 60 percent reduction in cancer lesions on the lungs in these mice as well as a significant reduction in protein markers associated with cancer progression.

    I have seen preliminary studies in the past showing Marijuana effective in lung cancer which is one of the toughest cancers to fight. Another thing most will never hear is that the University of Virginia in the 1970's showed Marijuana had anti-tumor activity against one of the deadliest brain tumors. The government immediately shut the study down upon hearing this. In 2000, a group in Madrid studied this with the same results. It's way past time to end prohibition.

    It's about time! I've never been, nor am I now a user….I don't enjoy getting high nor do I have anxiety or depression or cancer, but have known many people in the past 40 years who have benefited, so for those who may need it now to survive cancer or mental anxiety, it should be available to them.

  3. says

    Typical Banoosh BS story without attribution and misinterpreting scientific studies that show only tumor suppression in mice and NOT CURE in humans! Hey, it might cure cancer, but it doesn't help the movement to misstate facts.

  4. says

    Yeah how about the National Cancer Institute saying the same thing, with 33 tests at the bottom to show this among other effects, like treats Alzheimer, Dementia, other types of cancer, mental disorders, etc.

  5. says

    FINALLY! …. There is another option to destroy cancer quickly other than chemo/radiation that is actually safe with zero-harmful side effects. It is called cannabis oil and a 60 gram treatment will kill the most serious cancers within 90 days. Our own government holds the patents on Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants (Issue date: Oct 7, 2003 Patent number: 6630507) yet claims cannabis has no medicinal value. They also hold several other patents on this plant that will SHOCK you!! (links provided) How many more billions will we allow the pharmaceutical companies to make from human misery?

  7. Marelyn Shapiro says

    Im a bit annoyed. I have life threatening injuries from Chemo and this was suppressed. To think…i sat through all those infusions of chemo for 6 months…sick as a dog from the poison….and there was a cure which is 100% effective pmus could have even made me giggle uncontrollaby!!!

  8. Michael Prieto says

    Whatever 'law' you may be reciting, DO NOT mislead people into going to jail. I'm not against marijuana at all, but confusing people with this 'religious' claptrap is as reprehensible as the forces trying to keep cures and medicine away from people. BE a PERSON.

    (recopying to respond to recopy:

    Whatever 'law' you may be reciting, DO NOT mislead people into going to jail. I'm not against marijuana at all, but confusing people with this 'religious' claptrap is as reprehensible as the forces trying to keep cures and medicine away from people. BE a PERSON. (And stop spamming.)

  10. Michael T Buffo says

    The Government knew in 1972 the medical benefits of marijuana. Nixon called for the study and when he saw the results, he had them destroyed and launched the "war on drugs".

  11. Mariana Rebolledo says

    Were the Harvard researchers high at the moment? LOL This would be wonderful news! I'm not a user but if it cures anything its good. Chemo and all the pharmaceutical crap the doctors feed us are killing us slowly too.

  12. Bill Shepard says

    It is available to cancer patients here in california and let me tell you, it does not kill cancer. I had a friend that just died of cancer and she was taking cannabis oils from the start. This is a ploy from the drug heads trying to get it legalized. i don't really care what people do but don't lie to people and give them false hope when they are dying. This is all bullshit.

  13. says

    Bullshit. My husband had lung cancer and smoked pot both before and after being diagnosed and he smoked a lot of it. It was the medicinal stuff so high potency. The fact is he still battled less than 3 months and died. This is a bullshit way for people to jump on the bandwagon to legalize something that shouldn't be legal.

  14. Edward Rancourt says

    Bill Shepard – you are right. always listen to your professional western trained degreed oncologist. i am sure the marijuana products your friend used weren't harmful, anymore than laetrile or psychic surgery. unless the plants were grown in contaminated soil, use of contaminated plastic growing pots etc from China, other Chinese materials that might have offgassed in the environment where they were grown, were sulfurized, sprayed with neem oil or industrial pesticide or fungicide, butane-ized Etc etc … there is a million ways to contaminate plants nowadays, and commercial farmers have to pull off the crop EVERY time … just like ANY other farmer … that said i do think the stuff should be legal for adults to grow in their victory garden and consume just like alcohol or tobacco or acetaminophen. just don't expect miracles.

  15. says

    I get annoyed by folks who claim there is no use for cannabis, and no studies have been done to prove it's effectiveness. If no studies have been done and there is no medical use for it, then kindly explain U.S. Patent 6630507. U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services did enough research to PATENT the use of cannabinoids for medical use.

  16. says

    Mark, an excerpt from abc news on the study… "Harvard University researchers have found that, in both laboratory and mouse studies, delta-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) cuts tumor growth in half in common lung cancer while impeding the cancer's ability to spread." It helps fight, not cure. It also says smoking it is also bad for the lungs. Pot has more tar than cigarettes.

  17. says

    yes Mike. Fighting Cancer is good. I also know is has more tar that cigarettes, but a typical person smokes much less than a pack of cigarettes has in it. This subject also, in my mind, boils down to a persons right to live their live as they choose and not hurting others

  18. says

    True it is not 100% effective, however it does cure and has been proven to be 97% effective for any type of cancer or sickness in every single independent study. We are talking about eating 60+ grams of extremely potent, high grade oils extracted from the Cannabis plant Our own government holds several patents on this plant that prove everything we are saying to be true.

    New Cannabis vs. Cancer Patent Sought
    http://www.naturalblaze.com/2013/05/new-cannabis-cancer-patent-sought.html?m=1

  19. says

    Andrew West That link isn't only talking about THC. It references other chemicals in the same family as THC. The chemical family is diverse and plays many roles in the biology. This isn't exactly the same as "proving" that smoking/ingesting weed are effective treatments for the conditions you listed. Definitely needs more research though.

  20. says

    Bill Shepard I'm extremely sorry about your friend, but i don't think that just because THC could be a legitimate fighting agent against cancer means it is a miracle, works 100% of the time, completely cures you kind of drug, tell me what really is?

  21. Heidi M. O'Neal Ball says

    Personally I have not seen enough scientificaly benificial or reliable medical reports to say yay or nay…I do know that that the people in my world who have had cancer,related to someone who has it, and they used it either illegially or medicianilly to help their symptoms/issues that came from treatment/disease itself. Michael I have yet to check out the link but will here shortly. I do know from what I have heard is it does assist with sooo many symptons with other diseases but has not cured crap…yet? Yes it does sound like they may be jumping the gun a bit. I do wanna hear more!

  22. Natty Dave says

    Bill Shepard you are basing your opinion on one persons so called experience, rather than on science and fact, and you are leaving out the potential for user error, as well as the reality that nothing in this world is a guarantee except for death and taxes. Tommy Chong made a big deal out his prostate cancer and being given a clean bill of health, as have a number of other persons who have used cannabis oil successfully

  23. says

    Bill Shepard what process did she use to make the oil ? how much was she taking ? what other medication or health issues did she have ? did she have liver problems ? you cant simply take an oil made from marijuana plants and think you can cure your cancer.There are a lot of variables and things to take into account.From the potency of the starting material, to the way you extract and process the oil to how you dose yourself with it.That same oil that didn't cure her coulda cure someone else.Get your facts from ppl who are actively making the oil to cure hundreds of ppl.

  24. says

    Bill Shepard Marijuana affects everybody differently, just because cannabis oil didn't cure your friend doesn't mean it can't combat cancer. And i highly doubt that American, British, and Spanish institutions are all lying to us (University of madrid also did a similar study with even better results). Also, these people are using pure THC not cannabis oil, there is a big difference

  25. says

    Michael McDonnell You would be right if this were the only study. Unfortunately for you, in 2007 the University of Madrid performed the same study and found that the THC interacted with the cancer cells and actually caused them to perform autotrophy (aka to self destruct), essentially destroying the cancer.

    As for Tamara's husband i am truly sorry, but the main difference to note there is that he was smoking pot, not having THC injected into the cancer.

    Michael McDonnell Oh, and for being bad for the lungs thats obvious, smoking anything is harmful to the lungs but the statement that pot has more tar is false. You are referring to the 1971 study they use in health classes. That study tested leaves of the marijuana plant which aren't smoked, the bud is. The leaves have 3 times more tar than tobacco, the bud has three times LESS tar than tobacco. (They re-did the study in the 90s)

  27. Greg Rider says

    We can only extrapolate from the data and say that humans can eventually benefit from THC in this manner. But don't go blaming the industry for posting this and getting peoples hopes up, Blame your fucking corrupt government that KNOWS it CURES tumors in Mice, and not taking action. It is the barely regulated markets of food, drugs, and supplements (thanks GOV!) that gives us cancer, and your ignorance is obvious unless you admit that it is the GOV that is responsible for not allowing studies to happen that rid us of it.

    marijuana? who said anything about marijuana? That is a type of Tobacco Plant found in South America apparently… 3 things needed for something to be a crime – please do your own research…!!!

    I'm Quite sure it said Cannabis…! Tell the guy who bought the act he wasted his money and shove ya rules as I'm quite sure our rights and freedoms supersede mans contracts…

    When is a Plant a DRUG…? Duhh…! oh and did you not know, YOUR ALLOWED TO USE IT AS PART OF YOUR RELIGION EVEN IF THAT WAS THE CASE….!!!

    NOT That Canon Law is religious – you are obviously referring to Vatican and NOT Ucadian which is Ethical and Natural in Nature.

    A Statute Legislation or Act is NOT Gods Law…! That is MANS Law and Bullshit for profit and control…!

    Michael Prieto – Dude the Problem IS THE PERSON

    Thou shall not worship false deities… ie anything but yourself…!!!

    The Kingdom of Heaven is "in" man, not just in any one man, but in all mankind…! In your freakin head dude… Be the change you want to see in the world yeah…

    how about being propagandised towards something with an overall positive effect for once? instead of finding out that something that was said to be healthy or beneficial is actually carcinogenic!!

  31. Ben Davies says

    I have studied therapy techniques using music and audio technology and, although its a completely different area, what i have found is studies from supposedly reputable bodies championing the use of use of certain techniques claiming amazing things. It transpired these same bodies were closely associated with groups and companies selling these same techniques claiming them to have strong physical affects on the brain…a fact that their studies back up, but similar studies from other bodies do not. Its manipulation of data.

    Im pro weed, it should obviously be available for medical and recreation use..i dont see any reason why it shouldn't be. but i really do think that some of these facts are manipulated. I dont think you can buy everything you read online, even if it looks legit…you never know.

    As for the patent, whilst i would like to agree with you that the research persuaded them to claim the patent, im never convinced when it comes to controlling bodies…..

    Its just a thought…..

    I get amplified immune cell vaccines from my own body. This is the place. Ehealthandhealing.com. I'm in a video. Selling nothing. Just redeeming what happened to me. Check out the video section. I'm in one. I'm stage 4 metaplastic carcinoma. Nine lung nodules and this summer I hiked to top of mt. Townsend, not far from my home. Diagnosis January 2011. Gave me. 9 months maximum.

    New Cannabis vs. Cancer Patent Sought
    http://www.naturalblaze.com/2013/05/new-cannabis-cancer-patent-sought.html?m=1

  35. Eddy Scally says

    the video is 4:20 minutes long. yes. plus the cancer curing is great news as well. well time to start buying shares in glass companies cuz bong sales are gonna soar… like the minds of so many. on a side note: this is great that people can now battle cancer and actually win without being subjected to chemo and its effects but this now adds more people living in a very accelerating world population. Better to live longer in a world where access to clean water and food is getting increasingly harder? or accept your fate and live the most you can with the time you have? But we all know where cancer is coming from. Our collective divergence from nature and it seems the more we move away from nature and closer to a artificial world full of pollution, disease and war our bodies uptake this artificial world and its unnatural properties and it becomes cancer. Am I saying we need to let cancer just run wild as it is, so as too thin the herd? fuck no. The moment we take back our governments and do away money, wall street and corrupt corporations people will ban together in their local towns and cities and recreate the society we've always wanted. Together. Then… and only then will cancer and other diseases disappear for we are living in balance with nature and our bodies will be in harmony with the environment. Plus, we will be eating much more healthier cuz there wont any mc dees and monsantos dominating our diets which is the leading causes to diseases and cancer. Peace.

  36. says

    look tom why don't you be positive about if people are saying this is the cure it isn't. but!!!!! Marijuanna should be legalized for patients and maybe just your average user because it def has more pros than it does cons and it helps cancers patients a lot. this is just the beginning

  37. Noah Alyce Roads says

    Bill Shepard Finally someone talking some sense who isn't blinded by the new God of this country: Cannabis. Even people who have personally suffered terrible side-effects from the stuff (like myself) can't speak out about it..we're always censored and brushed aside.

    Harvard is funded by the federal government. You really trust their results?

  38. Joachim Hoff says

    Bill Shepard That's not very scientific of you Bill. So if it cures cancer, your idea is that EVERYONE with cancer, shall and WILL be cured, a 100%!
    That idea is stupid! Which makes me wonder if you are stupid too. You had one friend on cannabis oils that died from cancer, and you decide this is some sort of evidence(?) for the opposite being true?
    Check a thousand patients on oils, against a thousand off oils. Now you can start to conclude what is more likely. THAT is science. That's a plausible argument! Not assuming shit because we feel like it.
    I'm sorry about your friend, but that won't stop me from calling your bullshit.

  39. says

    Bill Shepard because it didnt work for one person that makes it illegitamate?

    You realize chemotherapy doesnt work for everybody either right? it sometimes makes it worse and kills them? but it does kill the tumors in some people?

    so your argument of if it must not work for some it must not work for all is totally invalid

  40. says

    Michael McDonnell There has never been one medical documented report of anybody getting lung cancer from weed and weed only, anybody that smoked weed that had lung cancer usually did other things as well, like smoking ciggaretts for example.

  41. says

    and youre ridculous Tamara your basing something off of what happened to your husband which is one person, you realize chemo therapy doesnt help people all the time right? it sometimes makes people sick and even wose.

    so this idea that if it works for some it must work for all is falac.

  42. Tyler Darling says

    It doesn't cure all cancer, it suppresses some, and kills other. Depending on the size of the tumor in the first place, AND the type of cancer.

    There is a simple fact here: We've found something. RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH – PERIOD.

    There's no longer a debate, if it's working for some people, if a man who claims to have cancer, then no longer has cancer because of the oil. there has to be, at LEAST a kernel of truth to it – so RESEARCH THE DRUG.

    It's so ignorant for people to reject this entirely, but they watch mainstream news and swallow it up daily.

    The skeptics are skeptical of everything that might save lives, but listen to the average daily bull shit spouted by their corporate slave owners.

    People need to wake up. MONEY and SELF DRIVEN PROFIT are the diseases that our social system has. Until you get rid of those, people will try to MANIPULATE INFORMATION FOR THE SAKE OF PROFIT, time and time again.

    You want corruption out? Remove the ability to have power.
    You want honesty from people? Develop a social system where honesty is REWARDED and lying is NOT.
    You want the truth? In this day an age, take everything with a grain of salt.

    For those who flat out say it doesn't work? Read a fucking book, seriously.
    For those who flat out say it works everytime? read a fucking book, seriously.

    It's the same thing with the entire vaccine argument. LEFT AND RIGHT sides.

    Why can you people find common ground.

    Do we not all wish for the cure??? THEN WHY NOT TEST IT.

    RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH – PERIOD!!!

  43. Lorraine Butcher says

    What I find rather ironic (and utterly disgusting) about this U.S. government patenting of said uses of this plant (besides the obvious drug war b.s.) is them trying to patent plant life – who the frig do they think they are – Monsanto? /sarcasm …

  44. says

    Bill Shepard I'm pretty sure it says lung cancer first of all and I'm pretty sure the scientists at Harvard are prob quite a bit more advanced,educated,and intelligent in general over your close minded ignorant self so maybe read the article before u expose us to ur bs

  45. Travissty Scott says

    Bill ….. you should read the story…. not the Tittle before you comment…. no where has it said we know how to cure peoples cancer with weed. What this story tells us, is that it may be possible with more research…. Don't blame us "Druggies" as you call us for your misinformation…. and don't let me catch you with a coffee in your hand…. That's a drug too!! lol
