Cannabis Showing High Positive Results for Incurable Ailments
www.marajuananews.com
All-Cannabis-Use-is-Medicinal By Paul Fassa Not surprisingly, a survey study involving 7,525 adult legal medical marijuana patients in California determined that 92% of them claimed improved medical conditions from using cannabis. The CDC final study was based on data from the California Behavioral Risk Surveillance System. “Our study contradicts commonly held beliefs that medical marijuana is being overused by healthy individuals,” wrote the study authors. “The most common reasons for use include medical conditions for which mainstream treatments may not exist, such as for migraines, or may not be effective, including for chronic pain and cancer.” Those commonly held beliefs include comments from various politicians, law enforcement and DEA agents who assert medical marijuana as a cover for recreational users and “stoners”. But more of us are realizing that the medical potential of cannabis has exceeded expectations and continues to do so. Two Dramatic Successes with Cannabis Where It’s Illegal After surgery and chemotherapy had failed with his bowel cancer twice at Christie Hospital in Manchester, England, David Hibbit was told he had 18 months to live. At the time, Hibbit was enduring chemo for the third time. But his energy was drained from that treatment. england-cannabis-oil-300x263And as a single working father of a five-year-old son, he needed to get on track with something other than chemotherapy. “I felt like the chemo was killing me and I had nothing to lose. I couldn’t accept I was going to die.” After researching what might work without side effects, he decided on cannabis oil, which is illegal in England even for medical purposes. He dropped chemotherapy and used the cannabis oil exclusively. “I pay around £50 [around $75 US] for a gram from a bloke I know who makes it,” he said. “That lasts me about a month usually.” Although he conceded it put him out of commission functionally for awhile he added, “but it’s nowhere near as bad as chemotherapy. The pain just seemed to disappear and it seems to have done the job. I just want to make other people aware that there are other options out there.” In January of 2015, his latest scan showed he was cancer free after only a few months of his self-medicating with cannabis oil. Then he announced wedding plans with his fiancee of six years, nursery nurse Heather Martin, to be a single father no more. Heather admitted, “I didn’t want him to take the cannabis oil at first because it’s illegal, but I saw the change in him and slowly got used to it.” Another example occurred in Puerto Rico with a young child, Kalel Santiago. Kalel had a bad health beginning at 10 months of age when he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of cancer that usually invades [...]
