The idea that cannabis kills cancer cells seems to no longer be a conspiracy theory in the United States. With this information, can any state legitimately say no to medicinal marijuana?
Amy Willis with Metro says that the US government has added a page on the use of cannabis and cannabinoids to their official cancer advice website.
She advises, “The National Cancer Institute, part of the US Department of Health, now advises that ‘cannabinoids may be useful in treating the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment’ by smoking, eating it in baked products, drinking herbal teas or even spraying it under the tongue.”
The site lists numerous medicinal uses of cannabis, such as stress- relief, pain relief, anti-inflammatory and antiviral activity, anti-anxiety, and anti-tumor properties, reduction of muscle spasms due to multiple sclerosis, and much more.
She adds: “Several scientific studies have suggested this in the past, and in April this year the US government’s National Institute on Drug Abuse revised their publications to suggest cannabis could shrink brain tumors by killing off cancer cells.”
Therefore, if this is a sign that the government of the United States would like to admit the anti-cancer properties of cannabis, would the other western nation share their attitude?
Cannabis is an incredibly beneficial herb which can cause no side-effects and can effective treat various severe healthy conditions and diseases, including cancer.
Therefore, it is our duty to support this struggle and attempt to help the numerous people who can greatly benefit from such treatments.
