Below is a video of Dr. Christina Sanchez, a molecular biologist at Compultense University in Madrid, Spain, explaining how THC (the main psychoactive constituent of the cannabis plant) completely kills cancer cells.
Not long ago, we published an article examining a recent case study where doctors used cannabis to treat leukemia. You can read more about that here. To read more articles and view studies about how cannabis is an effective treatment and cure for cancer, click here.
Cannabinoids refer to any group of related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. They activate cannabinoid receptors in the body. The body itself produces compounds called endocannabinoids, and they play a role in many processes within the body that help to create a healthy environment. I think it’s also important to note that even cannabis stripped of its psychoactive compounds can treat cancer effectively.
Cannabinoids have been proven to reduce cancer cells, as they help rebuild the immune system. Although not every strain of cannabis has the same effect, more and more patients are seeing success in cancer reduction, and in a short period of time, by using cannabis. Contrary to popular belief, however, smoking cannabis does not treat disease within the body very well, as therapeutic levels cannot be reached through this method of ingestion. Eating the plant or consuming cannabis oil is the best way to absorb cannabinoids within the body.
The world has come a long way in accepting this plant as a medicine rather than a harmful substance. It’s a plant that could benefit the planet in more ways than one. While cannabis is not yet accessible or offered as treatment in the way that chemotherapy is, more people are becoming aware if it, which is why it’s so important to continue to spread information like this. We can no longer deny the tremendous healing power of this plant.
