I am new here, and I was very surprised to not find any mention of medical marijuana in the cancer remedy section. Medical marijuana has come a long way from somoking a joint to relieve the pain of glaucoma (though that is a remedy that I have heard from several patients works better than any other), or eating a magic browing to increase appetite in chemo patients...

Until recently most of the limited research that has been done in the US has been on the compound THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), the active canabanoid that causes you to feel high upon cannibus consuption. Dr. William Courney, the leading researcher in medical cannibus, has isolated a previously unknown cannabanoid CBD (cannabinol) that is showing lots of promise as a cure for cancer and many other ailments. Strains of cannibus are even being developed that have a higher CBD to THC ratio and they do not even make you get the crazy head high that you get from THC. When you use Dr. Courney's prefered method of juicing, there is no high assoiated with it at all.

I am not very computer savvy, so I do not know how to post links, but if you type Dr. William Courtney MD into Google you will get enough info to keep you reading for days. He also has several very good lectures on Youtube.

Noteworthy cases are those of his wife Kristen, and he also recently cured two small children who were sent home to die with terminal brain cancer.

I am fully aware that marijuana is illegal in most places, however if you are sick and have the money to do so, moving to a state where it is legal could be a possible option....

In any case, it never hurts to be educated. I encourage you to learn as much as you can and educate others... Marijuana is a mirical plant that has many uses. The only way things will ever be changed is by education and by remembering to vote (assuming our votes count).

Before you write marijuana off as a drug, please concider this: when it was determined in supreme court that lifeforms could be pattented, the first pattent on a life form that the US Gov took for themselves was marijuana.

I am a 40 year nurse. I have never used cannabis but am very familar with its effects from my patients. I work as a hospice nurse for 5 years at one point. I had a bone cancer patient. He was in the last stages of the illness. He refused to have morphine or any other medication normally used. He told us he had a little patch out back and he would take care of his pain. He never had nausea and vomiting. He never had pain. He never had depression. He never lost his appetite. He lived 9 months longer than the doctors had expected. Let's legalize this herb.....
