What used to be considered a dangerous conspiracy theory and a scam for years, is now recognized as a legal medical treatment in the States.
The dreaded marijuana, once condemned as a ‘dangerous drug’ is now officially acknowledged as an effective cancer treatment.
The official website of “The National Cancer Institute”, which is a part of the US Department of Health, now contains a recommendation for using cannabinoids as a cancer treatment, as well as for alleviation of the adverse side effects caused by chemotherapy and radiation. Marijuana can be added in baked goods, beverages, or used in the form of cigarettes and sprays.
Among the indicated health benefits of cannabis are pain and stress reduction, anxiety relief, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, tumor prevention and reduction, alleviation of muscles spasms and cramps caused by MS, and a lot more.
The list of benefits is based on a number of laboratory experiments and published studies that refer to the ability of cannabis to reduce tumors and destroy cancer cells. All this caused the National Institute of Drug Abuse to revise their standing on cannabis.
Cannabis has another very important property – it does not cause any of the negative side effects found in traditional cancer treatments like nausea, vomiting, weakness, or hair loss. And given the fact that it is effective in the treatment of numerous diseases and health conditions, it will help thousands of people.
The question is, will the rest of the western modern countries follow the lead and acknowledge marijuana as an official cancer treatment.
