I saw someone resurrected a hemp oil thread in order to spam it (disgraceful), anyway i read the thread and was astounded by some of the assumptions, first of all it aint 'hemp' oil it is the stuff with THC so it makes you high!, second this Rick Simpson guy isn't selling it, he was giving it away and showing how to DIY.
Strangley this comes on the day we went to our Onc. to ask for medical, not for nausea or pain. There is something more to the story, endocannibinoids. Our bodies have natural receptors for it, CB1 and CB2 and they interact with the immune system and basicaly regulate our bodies.
Gruzman in Spain has been doing studies with the cannabanoids for a long time, even more research here in Israel where THC was first synthasised. Gruzman has been working with GW pharmacuticals from the UK and a few years ago they got a patent for treating GBM with cannabanoids, it's not the only patent on cancer and cannabinoids.
Before I am attacked I am not saying this is a 'cure' but anyone who is interested should do more research.
Ingesting oil is not the same as smoking it. CBD, the second molecule in MJ, allows for much higher doses of THC and both work in synergy. With synergy it MAY be possible to reach theraputic doses of THC but CBD by itself also has anti-cancer properties. CBD is not psycoactive or illegal.
There is a ton of misinformation, disinformation and lies both for and against this plant. Some people in the US can get access to this oil.
" Several different types of cancer have abnormal regulation of the endocannabinoid system that contributes to cancer progression and correlates to clinical outcomes. Modulation of the endocannabinoid system by pharmacological agents in various cancer types reveals that it can mediate antiproliferative and apoptotic effects by both cannabinoid receptor-dependent and -independent pathways."
" Modulation of the endocannabinoid system interferes with cancer cell proliferation either by inhibiting mitogenic autocrine/paracrine loops or by directly inducing apoptosis"
"Here we review the relationship between the endocannabinoid system and anti-tumour actions (inhibition of cell proliferation and migration, induction of apoptosis, reduction of tumour growth) of the cannabinoids in different types of cancer. This review will focus on examining how activation of the endocannabinoid system impacts breast, prostate and bone cancers in both in vitro and in vivo systems"
These observations raise the possibility that a dysregulation of the endocannabinoid system may promote cancer, by fostering physiological conditions that allow cancer cells to proliferate, migrate and grow.
Of note some studies have also shown increased growth with THC.
