September 22, 2009 – The healing properties of cannabis have long been touted amongst the British cannabis community, who have done everything in their power to bring word of the cancer curing Picture 4properties of cannabis to a wider audience. And at face value it would be fair to expect the worlds press to get pretty excited over even ‘a suspicion’ of a cure for cancer, a disease which will strike down almost 1 in every 2 people.

Cannabis can cure certain types of cancer. So why are we not researching it further? Because the pharma industry cannot get a patent on a plant so law enforcement holds the patent whilst the pharma’s try to build a chemical version..and that’s no longer good enough to keep it outlawed.

Unfortunately that’s not the case. Cancer is on the rise statistically, yet the people who control health issues at a national and international level (the pharmaceutical industry), are simply not prepared to let it be known that people can cure their own ailments, as it would cost them trillions of dollars in over-the-counter pain-relief sales, amongst a great many other products which cannabis has been proven as a safe, natural alternative.

Indeed Canadian Rick Simpson went one further. Instead of telling people about it, he started to use a cannabis-derived oil to cure his own skin-cancer. A cancer his doctor had attempted (and failed) to cure using more mainstream methods like strong drugs and surgery.

Its a truly mind-blowing story which explains in laymans terms the lengths which the establishment surrounding pharmaceutical drugs, will go to stop news of this getting out. Even going so far as to close down a Canadian Legion office and sacking the entire management team for promoting Rick Simpsons marijuana based hemp-oil.

Rumour has it the pharmaceutical industry is attempting to synthesise the active ingredients in cannabis so they may make use of its healing properties whilst at the same time, keeping it firmly outlawed, to stop people treating themselves. Just another conspiracy theory?

Remember Spice artificial cannabis? Which got banned recently?

Inhibition of human tumour prostate PC-3 cell growth by cannabinoids R(+)-Methanandamide and JWH-015 (a close relation to the now banned JWH-018)

According to Christopher P Evans M.D, who is a Contributing Editor with UroToday.Com, “Investigators have found that JWH-015 inhibited human prostate cancer cell xenograft growth in mice. The study’s conclusion is that CB2 receptor agonists have potential therapeutic application in the treatment of human prostate cancer.

So it turns out the active ingredient in Spice artificial cannabis could have cancer curing properties as a result of its ability to ‘tweak’ our in built CB1 and CB2 receptors. A tweak which is necessary to shut down the processes cancer cells need to multiply and grow. And this is the key issue.

“Cancer occurs because cells become immortalized; they fail to heed normal signals to turn off growth. A normal function of remodelling in the body requires that cells die on cue. This is called apoptosis, or programmed cell death”, says Manuel Guzman of Madrid University.

He Continued, “That process fails to work in tumors. But THC promotes its reappearance so that gliomas, leukemias, melanomas and other cell types will in fact heed the signals, stop dividing, and die.”

Dr. Ethan Russo , a neurologist, concurs.

“And, that is not all,” explains Dr. Russo: “The other way that tumors grow is by ensuring that they are nourished: they send out signals to promote angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels. Cannabinoids turn off these signals as well. It is truly incredible, and elegant.”

Which brings us back to Rick simpson’s hemp oil. A concoction which would see you facing a 5 year prison term in the United Kingdom, and 14 years if you decided to share your oil with a relative who may be dying of cancer.

Simpsons Hemp Oil has cleared a skin cancer re-occurrence after only 4 days, on his own cancer. A cancer which his doctor could not cure. Simpson also has a whole video-library of statements recorded by people who say they have been cured of cancer by Rick Simpson’s hemp oil.

So if you or a loved one are suffering with any form of cancer please please PLEASE write to your elected representative and ask why we are not supporting research into cannabis and its medical applications.

The clock is ticking for many people. Source.
