Nice Peter Reynolds with the save!! Thank you for your work. The cat is out of the bag and there is no putting him back in. Try telling this to the thousands of people who have now been helped by cannabis. Listen to what this retired judge, who has put hundreds away for marijuana has to say now that he has found the help of cannabis in reversing his COPD. It seems that when writing on the subject of medicine he should have made this clear.
Instead he sought to endow his opinions with fake expertise. It is true that there are many ridiculous snake oil claims made about cannabis curing cancer, although it would be foolish to write off all the anecdotal reports.
They demonstrate an urgent need to advance research into the proven pre-clinical anti-cancer properties of cannabinoids. Most of these claims are made by people who are very sick, desperate or are relatives of people suffering from cancer. Furthermore, the evidence is conclusive that cannabis offers great benefits as a palliative medicine for cancer and many other conditions.
This is a summary of the evidence on cannabis and cancer which is balanced and warns of the snake oil claims but substantiates the proven benefits:. Your link is to a rather biased site. Want to appear credible, cite something impartial and with facts. First your earlier attack on me after I calmly laid out my own case of being cured of cancer by using cannabis and now this rather weak-kneed attack on another intelligent commenter for his reasoned rebuttal to Dr.
My advice to you? Get back to the adults in the room when you have something constructive to add to the conversation. Ah and now your defending the racist homophobe because he shares your deluded views. Now your just looking like a stalker.
Well, apply your stalking skills to googling Peter Reynolds and check out his various court cases. Obviously other sciences have a part to play in all sorts of medical research but Dr Grimes clearly knew that his title of doctor would endow his opinions with purported medical expertise.
This is unethical and he should have made his qualifications clear and not allow readers to be misled. Any doctor or scientist know that cancer is not one disease but has a myriad of different manifestations, and any one treatment that is claimed to be a cure all has to be suspicious. Also it takes years of in depth study to gain a PhD. Equally the author is simply stating that the evidence around cannabis curing cancer, as far as the evidence hierarchy goes, is not at the very top and that further research is needed before the gushing claims.
Furthermore, what exactly is unethical about the title Dr when used for a Dr of physics? You and Dr Grimes need to educate yourselves about the endocannabinoid system before you wade in clumsily demonstrating your ignorance. How we work out the difference between reproducible results of trials and those that may show promise and need further trials before they can have a place in medicine? Anecdotal evidence very low in the evidence hierarchy I agree , two words: Just to help you review your evidence: Oh and maybe educate yourself on this: Thus the MD was born.
Many PhDs are working extremely to hard to cure disease. Which has what relevance to the fact that in describing himself as a doctor and writing about medicine it is inevitable that readers will infer he is a medical doctor? Oh and Peter, any chance you could present a coherent rebuttal and classify your evidence according to the evidence hierarchy rather than your childish ad hominem attacks.
Not like you to be nasty and mean is it, or to rampant sexism or stoop to homophobic and other attacks is it? Oh hang on, look what I found: I think any observer has only to look back at your comments to see very clearly who is behaving in childish fashion.
A way to blame others for your own negative thoughts by repressing them and then attributing them to someone else. Due to the sorrowful nature of delusion and denial it is very difficult for the target to be able to clarify the reality of the situation.
Jeanette, one of the most delightful if not THE most delightful aspects of this whole page has been listening to the sound of you intellectually and vigorously wiping the floor with dear old addicted Peter.
Bravo, and thank you. There are a lot of scientific studies for the medical benefits of cannabis, including for treating cancer and psychosis. The article does not mention cannabis scientific studies at all and simply dismisses everything with facile generalisations. I think you are taking the article too personally for there surely is a cult of people saying that cannabis is a panacea for all ills. Au revoir and good evening. Yes, I say again, I understand the hierarchy of evidence.
Oh and a good article from the BMJ: Oh dear, you have a serious problem with an uncontrolled patronising attitude. Maybe try reining that in a bit? It might enhance your ability to communicate. Yes, I fully understand each of your five issues but what is your point? Bob Marley was murdered. I have to suspect your motivations. Because anecdotal evidence can be biased. Also if I wanted life saving treatment I would opt for tried and tested treatment. Do you know what they call alternative medicine that works?
He IS a doctor, nobody gives a crap about your ethical point of view. Get a job, sort out some proper medication, and start things moving again.
You might even become mildly interesting, given enough time. I would like to try mmj for the chronic pain I suffer from. The problem is with the state I reside in. It has taken it almost four 4 years to get its program up and running. So I still must use the effective, yet very addictive, opioids. America, once again, has elected the worst candidate for cannabis. Reagan was Nixon on steroids. Now we get get President Forty-five.
This Doctor of physics is also crap at his own sphere of so called expertise. Plutonium is not a naturally occurring substance.
Cyanide is found in most fruits some nuts like Almonds, but nowhere in nature does it occurs in sufficient quantities to be toxic! Not strictly the point he was making, which was that natural does not mean benign.
But, there have been cases of cider drinking alcoholics who have suffered from cyanide toxicity from apple pips. Admittedly very very rare, but not totally impossible.
TBH, the volumes they were drinking meant that the cyanide was probably the last of their worries…. Please show where plutonium is naturally occurring with a half life long enough to be consumed. Uranium is natural but is enriched to make plutonium. And abuse shows your ignorance! You might want to check the periodic table.
Trace amounts of plutonium occur naturally in uranium. This article spouts a lot of nonsense. It is obvious to anyone who has met a person, child or adult, who successfully utilizes marijuana medically that the drug has medicinal value, if only as a painkiller.
Meanwhile, we prescribe much more toxic and dangerous substances every day. Stop with the scaremongering and let people use medicine that is clearly working for them. Legalization and regulation can only make things better by ensuring people can find out the right strains of marijuana for them and have consistent access to them. I did, hence the comment. Cannabis is proven to be medically effective in some circumstances. The author uses THC, which is one of many compounds within cannabis.
Without legalization, those who believe cannabis to be the best remedy for their conditions are forced into an illegal black market where quality is unknown. Legalization and regulation allows for patients to find marijuana that created for their specific problems. Here is the original book this article claims to be citing. I stopped reading when he claimed it has no benefits for Eipelpsy i couldnt take it seriously after that. I agree with the author. Its scheduled and very little research is done.
Placebo is a very powerful thing. Not saying that to be cliche. What we need, is for controlled groups and test that showed yes there was a decrease in inflammation markers. Anxiety has been proven to be reduced from users thinking they are getting a anxiety med but was just a sugar pill.
Although, you basically denied any type of evidence that it has happened. Speaking from personal experience I could not see how that could be the case considering epilepsy is not something your brain function has any control over as it is a misfire of the electrical currents that basically make the brain work.
Personally I have found cannabis to be very beneficial in the treatment of my epilepsy where no other medication had previously worked. Everybody is different but from my experience as somebody who had very poorly controlled epilepsy it worked for me. Cannabis uses cannabinoids to help protect against the sun..
I doubt very much if Dr David Grimes has inquired into the history of why Marijuana is illegal. Like most people he simply believes that it is a dangerous drug and that has always been the case. His motivation was, quite simply, racism. The corruption of wholesome American youth and all that. He and his cohorts cooked up the idea that it would be named a dangerous drug and be made illegal.
It was entirely a fiction but with all the resources of the FBI at his disposal he managed to pull it off and, as a result absurdly, Marijuana was put in the same category as Heroin and other really lethal drugs. People can watch the movie on You Tube, if they wish. It becomes obvious within 5 minutes that it is an absurd parody of reality to the point that it is laughable to any rational person.
It is against this background, the deliberate lie taken as fact, that all anti-marijuana propaganda should be seen. If you take nonsense as fact as an initial premise then it is going to color all that you do. In the meantime I concur with all those who have already written that the use of Marijuana has all sorts of health benefits but, since I would be simply repeating what others have already said on here I will forgo that. Get your facts straight.
If you read the history you will find that the USA at his behest started pressuring foreign governments to make it illegal under threat of sanctions as soon as the USA made it illegal. The US used threats of sanctions etc against other countries if they did not comply.
But really, if you want to continue your irrational prejudice against Marijuana, feel free. But I prefer knowledge to fiction so, perhaps, of your own bat you might bother to research rather than criticise because it is perfectly obvious that you are approaching the subject from that unique perspective of ignorance that those who want to defend the indefensible so often do. Like others who have written here I know that Marijuana provides benefits in truly dire circumstances when all else fails.
Perhaps you should research that instead of nitpicking. A patient suffering from throat cancer. Another, a suffer of severe arthritis. Again it was Marijuana that provided relief. Another victim of grand mal seizures who was able to cut down on the seizures by the use of Marijuana. All people I have known, anecdotal with regards to science, but so what, the fact is Marijuana worked and frankly I find the sort of arguments that people like you put forward pretty feeble and almost always from people who have little or no experience of Marijuana and its uses.
One has to ask what is it that people like you are so afraid of? In short I find the mentality of people like you hard to fathom, it seems to be distinctly lacking in compassion or concern for the suffering of others or its alleviation.
But whether they did or did not threaten sanctions is beside the point As you have said, movement towards prohibition had started while Hoover was still a child.
The evidence supports limited benefits for a number of ailments. Your ability to accept anecdotal evidence over real evidence is your business. It has no bearing on whether cannabis actually works for those people, even though they might think it does. It has nothing to do with compassion either. Do you think that all drugs should be legal, because some of them may help people who are ill? You need to look at my profile on Disqus.
If recreational activities were not medicinal we would not spread seratonine when we laugh. To avoid doctors like you, thirsty for wallets full, i sit surrounded by trees my real doctors , and vaporize it. The trees are there giving me what i need to survive, while i am vaporizing it. This should be a great lesson for you because trees are not trying to make me stop doing it, and yet they are sharing the sacred silence with me.
This new cannabis cult as you call it is just a tentative of re-connection with the spirit within each one of us. This cult is just a consequence of the exosrcism of the spirit that took place in the last century in order to science do business. At last a sane article about the hype and its cultlike followers. Pharmaceutical scientists may examine thousands of molecular compounds before they find one that effectively fights disease without harming the patient.
Alternatively, hundreds of molecular pathways are evaluated to determine if a protein or compound can alter the signaling in a beneficial way. For those suffering a real medical malady please get proper medication.
There are qualified pharmaceutical scientists and manufacturers that are expertly trained to discover, develop, test and manufacture new medications to high standards. Put aside your patronising, offensive and arrogant attitude and educate yourself about the endocannabinoid system.
The hate-filled bigotry which you demonstrate demeans you but it will not stop this journey of discovery. There is no desire to increase the level of high, unless you intake faster than normal like an idiot. Grimes is a skilled propagandist.
All those years of struggling for funding, writing to be awarded funds to legitimize his research have paid off. The trouble is Dr. Grimes has NEVER had cancer or used cannabis oil made from the herb without any chemical interference. I was diagnosed with lung cancer and decided to forgo chemo and radiation after watching family and friends succumb to those poisons. I was fortunate enough to live in Canada and was allowed to purchase cannabis legally.
Look him up online. He has personally been credited by thousands of people for saving their lives despite Dr. Grimes is being extremely selective in his pointed criticisms and discrediting information about cannabis.
The really sad thing about this article is the fact that so many members of the medical fraternity appear to be willing to sell their souls to the devil to secure funding for their own pet projects — all these supposed medical professionals salivating at the opportunity to enthusiastically take over from where Dr. Grimes has left off in his ridiculous and demonstrably ignorant assault on cannabis as a legitimate medicine proven to cure all kinds of physical ailments.
You should try and emphasise proven even more. How do you know it was cannabis which cured the cancer ffs. Eating zero sugar sure af is more anti cancer than this bs.
And I also think that chemo is a bad choise. Please show me evidence that it affects the brain the same way on those with a mental disability as those without, I use cannabis to treat my autism, I have dyspraxia and my brain is wired differently, and so it affects me differently to others. Which is why when some scum bag on an ex-mates stag do spiked my drink with cocaine, I was found unconscious in the gutter by the fantastic paramedics in Barcelona.
I wish people would stop making bullshit claims about something they clearly know nothing about, where as I do, because I have the disability I treat. This dumb shit takes the cake.
I have epilepsy you moronic taint. This page is owned by the Telegraph Newspaper, which is owned by the Barclay Brothers, and who also own Trigen Laboratory outright — a company btw that markets products for Parkinsons disease and an anti-emetic for people who are vomiting due to Chemotherapy treatments for Cancer. Dr David Robert Grimes is a paid for shill that is misrepresenting the evidence!
Could you please go away and leave the conversation to the adults in the room? Your infantile ad hominums are exhausting. The of cannabis use medically involves distinguishing between cannabidiol or CBD and its psychoactive cousin, THC.
These 2 are very different and in some respects, opposite in effects. Grimes appears entirely unaware of CBD. This alone makes it abundantly clear this is not a topic Grimes has any real familiarity with whatsoever. Again, Mr Grimes shows his ignorance of this reality.
As the whole plant is illegal most places and Pharm Cos are busy worldwide simultaneously spending lobby bucks making sure cannabis stays illegal whilst busying themselves with patenting their own Franken lookalike molecules, of course research into whole plant cannabis use is modest.
But there are still hundreds of papers last time I checked. Even the relatively new extract CBD has dozens of papers for cancer use alone. The guff about killing other cells shows again that Grimes is ignorant of perhaps the most well agreed and exciting thing about cannabis namely that it is not at all toxic to our own cells.
Each of us, even our poorly educated journo, have a functioning endocannabinoid system. So, how do you explain my 14 yr old cat being totally cured of Squamous Cell Carcinoma by eating small amounts of Cannabis Oil daily?
This article is a load of CRAP! Seems like there are a lot of pot-heads on here trying desperately to promote their brain-destroying, home-wrecking pastime! People should be able to use it if they want regardless of medical benefits. Legalise it and apply the same rules to work, driving etc as are applied to alcohol. Of course since when did conservatives care about evidence or logic? Much of what he said is accurate, but most researchers I know say that more studies need to be done. And I know of very few people who take cannabis as a cure for anything other than pain and nausea.
And to clarify something the author stated…. On the person, on what pathway is causing the nausea. For some, cannabis exceeds the other medications in reducing nausea….. Here again is where more research is needed. The only thing that will end this is if we actually invest in quality research and testing. This article is a load of bunk. So again, it must have passed clinical trials for those purposes. I thought they were supposed to be all mellow? Totally understandable to be irritated by idiots promoting cannibus as the only treatment for cancer.
It is a complete joke, however to take issue with poor journalism and scientific review through more poor journalism and scientific review! What kind of scientist sites a correlation of mental illness and cannibus as though it could be a causation. Any schmo with a schizophrenic buddy knows they use it to manage anxiety just like the rest of us.
I find it difficult to believe someone who cares about scientific integrity, more than some other agenda wrote this article. I cured my 14 yr old cat of Squamous Cell Carcinoma, by only feeding him tiny amounts of Cannabis Oil extract. It can cure cancer completely. I watched it work! This article is full of lies, and the author writing this opinion piece is not a medical Dr, he merely has a Doctorate in Physics, so he knows not of what he speaks.
I am neutral on the subject of legalization, except where it is medically benificial. I am aware that not all non- epileptic seizures occur for the same reasons, but a good cross- section study might prove useful— one way or the other.
How about letting people study it instead of throwing them in jail? How about opening the door to science to truly understand it? If you really want to discuss this, how about an article asking for research to be allowed instead of being criminal activity?
This article was written from reading an abstract. Here is the original book this article is citing. I have never cared about the people considered welfare abusers. Corporate abuse always trumps the few who abuse welfare, and, I know that there is not, in fact, a niche for everyone in this world, where even with effort, you can make your way.
And, apparently, they break frequently. This pisses me off. Those that produce anti pot literature are our enemies and not to be trusted. Wow this article is obviously written by a pharma advocate. Personally I have witnessed first hand cases of remission of auto immune diseases, the abilities to move and to get out of bed without pain, to be able to quit using a wheelchair to walking unasisted bc of cannabis plus a biologic plus pure thc of marinol.
It took all three but remission is the result. There is a breakthrough Parkinson PD precursor that i use in getting rid of my PD disease with great benefits. Not sure if I am allowed to share a link via this blog. Anyhow take a look at this if you are able to. These findings may contribute to set the basis for a new therapeutic approach for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

They attack so many haters on the internet people personally and degrade them because they know it all, but have no facts or evidence to back up their personal view!!!
The insult is in itself a statement of failure. Theirs enough information and studies out there on the net just have to search it, but I will give you a good start!!! I will show you how to go fishing, instead of giving you fish!!! The introduction of cannabis in the Western medicine occurred in the midst of the 19th century, reaching the climax in the last decade of that century, with the availability and usage of cannabis extracts or tinctures. In the first decades of the 20th century, the Western medical use of cannabis significantly decreased largely due to difficulties to obtain consistent results from batches of plant material of different potencies.
The identification of the chemical structure of cannabis components and the possibility of obtaining its pure constituents were related to a significant increase in scientific interest in such plant, since A new and more consistent cycle of the use of cannabis derivatives as medication begins, since treatment effectiveness and safety started to be scientifically proven. Indications for the use of cannabis included: The Chinese used mainly the seeds of cannabis for medical purposes; therefore, it may be assumed that they were referring to that part of the plant when describing its medicinal properties.
Until today, cannabis seeds continue to be used as a laxative by Chinese physicians. Today some of these fatty acids are considered as having therapeutic effects, such as the g-linoleic acid, whose topical use is recommended for eczema and psoriasis, and its oral use for atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other inflammatory diseases.
In China, the medical use of cannabis never reached the importance it did in India. In India, the medical and religious use of cannabis probably began together around years B. Furthermore, cannabis was traditionally considered sacred in Tibet, although little has been written about its religious or medicinal use. In Tantric Buddhism, which was developed in the Himalayas, cannabis was used to facilitate meditation.
Though seldom reported, it is believed that the medical use of cannabis in Tibet was intense due to the following reasons: Reference to the use of cannabis by the Greeks and the Romans are scarce, suggesting that it was little used by these people.
In Arabia, well-known physicians mentioned cannabis in their medical compendiums, as Avicena, in the year A. Cannabis is known in Africa at least since the 15th century, and its use was, possibly, introduced by Arab traders, somehow connected to India. This is evidenced by the similarity of the terms used for preparing the plant in Africa and India. In Africa, the plant was used for snake bite, to facilitate childbirth, malaria, fever, blood poisoning, anthrax, asthma, and dysentery.

Hi If you need oil treatment with thc write to us laboratory. We help patients all the world. My father was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer, and we tried various treatments from Chemo to Radiation which all proved futile hence resources and time was wasted, yet frustrated without hope surfing the internet I found on phoenix tear. Simpson I tried to look for a way to get the Rick Simpson Oil and finally a friend of mine helped via email: Simpson for the time he spent in getting this oil to save lives his email is: That THC might be useful against glioma does not tell us that hemp oil or smoking the weed will be useful against glioma any more than the fact that digoxin works in congestive heart failure tells us that it would be a good idea to ingest foxglove leaves.
Skeptical Raptor puts it in perspective:. This converts to around 3. So how close to that 3. According to research, smoking one joint will give you a blood level of THC of around 1. In other words, to get an anti-cancer effect, you need to light up around joints per day. Finally, there was one human study in the list of glioma papers. Basically, this was a phase I trial testing a method of administering THC.
This was also some strange science in that nine patients with recurrent glioma had their tumors resected, but a catheter was left in the cavity left behind after surgery, and then:. The THC solution was administered to the patients for different times starting at days 3—6 after surgery at a rate of 0. In the case of Patients 1 and 2, who received THC for 30 and 26 days, respectively, biopsies were also taken after the THC-treatment period and various tumour-cell parameters were evaluated.
As you can see, this is very different from smoking marijuana or ingesting hash oil. It involves directly infusing THC solution at a high concentration directly into the brain cavity where the tumor had been, in the hope of killing off any remaining tumor cells surrounding the cavity. Moreover, no one generally bothers with intratumoral infusion of a drug unless it requires a very high concentration to work. Mean survival was 24 weeks, and two patients survived approximately a year.
The authors try rather like Stanislaw Burzynski, actually to argue that this is better than would be expected based on other studies and controls, and to claim that some patients responded. I agree with Harriet. They could be consistent with an antitumor effect, but they could just as easily be consistent with no effect.
Worse, this was not simply ingesting, smoking, or being injected with cannabinoids. There are four breast cancer studies listed. The second study looked at five different cannabinoids and found that CBD was the most potent inhibitor of breast cancer cell growth in vitro IC 50 between 6.
The next set of three studies look at lung cancer. The next study found similar results testing CBD against lung cancer cell lines and tumor cells from a patient in cell culture and mouse models. The third study showed that stimulation of cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 with synthetic agonists, Win55, and JWH, which activate CB1 and CB2, respectively, inhibited the growth and invasion of A lung cancer cells in vitro and their growth and metastases in mouse models.
And so it goes. With the exception of the glioma study, all were preclinical studies looking at cell culture models and mouse models. One was a review article. One, as I pointed out above, had nothing to do with cancer, and I suspect the author included it to round up his list of studies to Unfortunately, this is not the first time Arjun Walia has constructed such a list. In , Walia was still citing some highly discredited studies, such as studies by Mark and David Geier.
The intellectual dishonest of representing this list of studies as evidence that cannabis cures cancer aside, it is a group of moderately interesting papers that suggest that purified cannabinoid receptor agonists can produce reasonable, albeit by no means spectacular, antitumor effects in preclinical models. Cancer Research UK concludes:. There is also evidence that cannabinoids, under some circumstances, can stimulate cancer cell growth and possibly contribute to tumor progression.
They can also have different effects depending on dose and the level of cannabinoid receptors on the tumor cells being treated. If cannabinoids do have anticancer effects in humans, it will likely only be against certain cancers, most likely combined with existing chemotherapy and targeted drugs. PK underwent a bone marrow transplant but was noted to have blast cells six months after treatment and therefore underwent aggressive chemotherapy along with a tyrosine kinase inhibitor.
After more recurrences and more treatment such as radiation therapy to the brain for a presumed, but never completely documented, infiltration of the brain by leukemia, it was stated in the case report:.
She was placed in palliative home care and told to prepare for her disease to overwhelm her body and from which she would suffer a stroke within the next 2 months. The family found articles on how cannabis supposedly cures cancer, and found their way to Rick Simpson, who has been featured in utterly credulous articles in High Times and SF Weekly the latter of whose editors really should have known better as the man who can cure cancer with hemp oil, who provided her with hemp oil mixed with honey because of the bitter taste and viscous nature of hemp oil.
This was administered in daily doses. By day 15, the chronic strain was gone, and PK started taking Hemp Oil 2 from an outside source.
In actuality in Figure 2, we see the blast count increasing with increasing dose until day 27, when it starts falling. Then Hemp Oil 4 was tried from day 50 to day 67, and her blast counts started rising. During that time, PK suffered the psychotropic effects of the hemp oil, including euphoria, disoriented memory, and the like.
Unfortunately, PK developed gastrointestinal bleeding and bowel perforation with peritonitis on day 78 and passed away. So, basically, she lived two and a half months after being placed on hospice. They also assert because PK was treated for tumor lysis syndrome a syndrome in which the waste products of tumor breakdown, often seen after intense chemotherapy in hematopoietic malignancies, injure organs such as the kidneys , it must mean that the hemp oil was effective.
Unfortunately, even if a mild dose-response effect was observed that would not rule out spontaneous remission.
