Health Benefits of Cannabis
February 10, 2019
Marijuana (hemp) has long been considered a universal folk medicine the world over. They used cannabis seeds and their oil, as well as the plants themselves. Unfortunately, with the introduction of criminal penalties for the trafficking of narcotic substances, which include marijuana and its derivatives, the culture of using cannabis for medicinal purposes has been almost lost. Just when we especially need it! Today the number of people diagnosed with malignant neoplasms (cancer) is alarming.
In the 1990s, an American named Rick Simpson came up with a way to extract (obtain) hashish oil (Rick Simpson Oil – RSO) and use it for cancer treatment. Naturally, he checked it on himself personally, since he was sick with cancer, and hemp was his last hope.
Fortunately, hashish oil saved Rick from a deadly disease. Since then, this oil is also called Phoenix Tears – Tears of Phoenix. It has cured and brought back to life thousands of people in the US and the world over.
Despite the significant number of studies confirming the beneficial therapeutic effects of cannabis and cannabinoids, many states do not change their position relative to it, not allowing cancer patients to use the last chance given by nature for the treatment of cancer. Currently, marijuana (cannabis) is banned in several states in the US under the penalty of criminal punishment.
Therefore, all attempts at self-production, storage, purchase, and sale of cannabis and other cannabinoids-containing compounds are at your personal risk and peril. Nevertheless, there are a number of countries apart from the US in which the use of medicinal cannabis (including hashish oil) is allowed (in one way or another) by the state and many people have already taken advantage of this. Here is a sample list of these countries:
Australia, Argentina, Belgium, UK, Germany, Israel, Spain, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Portugal, Uruguay, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Jamaica.
A standard course of cannabis cancer treatment lasts 3 months for which you have to use about 60g of hash oil (or 90g with 4th degree of cancer). Detailed schemes of courses of hashish oil for the treatment of cancer can be obtained on other websites.
The cannabinoid system, Cannabl, produces a group of chemical compounds that are known to have mental and physical effects on consumption. These chemical compounds are so-called cannabinoids. Since they are produced inside a cannabis plant, these cannabinoids can also be referred to as phytocannabinoids. The cannabinoid group is one of the main families of neurochemical substances, whose functional significance has only recently become studied.
Thirty years ago, when Cannabinoids were first discovered, scientists still struggled with the fact that our brain and body were tightly interconnected system of receptors. Fast track to today and there have been numerous studies on the effect of cannabinoids on these receptors for therapeutic reasons. We are now in the process of a revolution in the study of cannabinoids around the world. About 85 cannabinoids have now been discovered, and their numbers are growing, as legal norms have been weakened to ensure further research.
In 2005, research from the University of Mississippi in the United States showed us that hemp contains 489 identifiable chemical compounds. At least 200 of them are cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. They are found in a wide range of concentrations in the marijuana inflorescences, its leaves, and stems. Cannabinoids have become well known for their therapeutic potential and are the basis for the medical and scientific use of cannabis. Cannabinoids have the ability to act as antiemetic and antispasmodic agents, work well as appetite stimulants, and are also known to have some analgesic effect.
Cannabinoids and their Impact
The main effects of cannabis use in the human body are specific membrane-bound cannabinoid receptors called CB1 (mainly in the brain) and CB2 (mainly in the immune system). THC, for example, acts on both CB1 and CB2 receptors, and its neuroprotective properties relieve pain in most medical cannabis users.
Oil, (not to be confused with hemp oil) – is a highly concentrated product of processing marijuana, namely the extraction of its glands with various organic solvents, such as ethyl 96% alcohol, purified butane, etc.
The location of cannabinoid receptors in the human body
All of the benefits of marijuana (including hashish oil) for health and in the fight against serious diseases
THC (THC) – (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol) – tetrahydrocannabivarin is a powerful psychoactive chemical which is even stronger than THC. However, the duration of the effects is two times shorter. Some of the things it can treat are anxiety, stress and panic disorders. It also can help tremors with Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological orders.
CBD (CBD) – cannabidiol
CBD is not a psychoactive cannabinoid, therefore, does not cause much euphoria. It was found to stimulate brain cells and bone growth. Used in the treatment of insomnia and cancer.
CCS (CBC) – cannabichromene
Not a particularly powerful psychoactive compound that is up to ten times more effective than CBD in the treatment of stress and anxiety, it also has anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties.
CBN (CBN) – cannabinol
CBN has a mild, non-psychoactive effect. It is created as a result of the degradation of THC. The most sedative of all cannabinoids, it can be useful in treating insomnia, glaucoma, and pain.
CBC (CBL) is cannabicyclol – Not psychoactive – does not cause euphoria
Light converts CBC to CBT.
Cannabis against cancer
When an oncologist diagnoses a malignant tumor in a patient, he will tell him about the treatment options. This will depend on the type of cancer that has been diagnosed, along with factors such as the patient’s age and general health. Also important is the stage and the rate of its spread. There are 4 cancer treatment options that are usually offered in medical institutions and these are:
- Radiation therapy
- Biological or
- Radionuclide therapy (Radiation)
Dosage forms of cannabis in cancer treatment: Chemotherapy
Chemotherapy as a treatment for malignant neoplasms has many side effects that can make it almost impossible for the patient to maintain good health and stay in good shape. One of the main side effects of chemotherapy is nausea and vomiting. Nausea and vomiting create problems for eating, because essential nutrients do not enter the body, which causes deterioration in overall health. Some may even start uncontrolled weight loss, leading to anorexia.
Cancer treatment with cannabis medicinal forms gives the patient the ability to feel appetite / hunger and the ability to eat fully. Nausea passes along with vomiting caused by chemotherapy. CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the five cannabinoids found in cannabis, which just like it slowed down tumor growth in leukemia and breast cancer.
Cannabinoids affect cancer cells: -Increase stress EPS (endoplasmic reticulum) cancer cells and their autophagy (self-destruction) .- Reduce the growth factor of vascular endothelial growth (VEGF) .- Suppress signals about the growth of new blood vessels. Suppress the adhesion of cancer cells. Suppress the migration of cancer cells for cancer treatment purposes! Cannabis is an incredibly effective and environmentally friendly drug.
Cancer (without marijuana exposure):
- Avoids apoptosis (cell death)
- Creates new infected blood vessels
- Produces enzymes and metastases
What happens when cannabinoids begin to affect the body’s endocannabinoid system (EX) and fight cancer? Angiogenesis (creation of new blood vessels). ECS inhibits the creation of enzymes and metastasis.
