One of the most interesting studies is a 2014 study published in the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology that revealed that cannabis essentially contains a compound that may kill brain cancers that neither chemotherapy or radiation can touch! (1)
From all the studies on cannabis, researchers know there are over 60 cannabinoids in cannabis, but according to several studies, a specific one, cannabidiol (CBD)—also one of the most abundant ones—”has been found to inhibit and/or kill a wide range of cancers in the animal model, including gliobastoma (a difficult-to-treat type of brain cancer), breast, lung, prostate, and colon cancer.”
What has researchers very excited, however, is that the cannabinoids in cannabis also have the ability to inhibit the stem-like regeneration of cancer cells.
This is very important because cancer stem cells, which are unlike regular tumor cells, are capable of breaking off from an existing lesion or tumor and then forming a new colony of tumor cells.
And while radiation and chemotherapy may be able to ultimately reduce the size of a tumor, in doing so, they also enhance the remaining post-treatment lesion or tumor with more cancer stem cells, and in some cases, these treatments may even transform non-cancer stem cells into cancer stem cells, which of course, not only defeats the purpose but also makes matters much worse for the patient.
Unfortunately, though, even with all of this scientific proof and knowledge, medical marijuana is still only legal in a few states but both politicians and supporters in the medical community continue to fight for its blanket acceptance based on the significant and continued positive research.
Coconut oil—and its countless healing properties—has essentially jettisoned to the top as one of the all-time best therapeutic foods.
Similar to cannabis, coconut is associated with helping numerous diseases and has as many pharmacological actions—50 or more to date, including improving cholesterol levels, weight loss, boosting immunity, digestive issues, kidney problems, heart disease, diabetes, HIV, and a variety of different cancers.
