Who knew marijuana could save lives?
Aside from recreational use, people with serious medical issues smoke marijuana. Well, The National Institute on Drug Abuse has admitted that Cannabis kills cancer cells and shrinks one of the most serious types of brain tumors.
The report states: ‘Recent animal studies have shown that marijuana extracts may help kill certain cancer cells and reduce the size of others.’
‘Evidence from one animal study suggests that extracts from whole-plant marijuana can slow the growth of cancer cells from one of the most serious types of brain tumors.’
‘Research in mice showed that these extracts, when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation.’
The term ‘Medicinal Marijuana’ refers to using the unprocessed plant in its entirety to treat a disease or symptom. Today, the drug isn’t recognized as a medicine by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but the FDA has approved two medications that contain cannabinoid chemicals. THC and CBD are two cannabinoids of medical interest. THC increases appetite, reduces nausea, and decreases pain inflammation and muscle control control problems. CBD doesn’t affect the mind or behavior.
