Success stories are the best way to keep people positive about marijuana. Especially those stories that involve the scarier of the afflictions, such as epilepsy, Alzheimer's, and cancer. By reading the success that some patients have had once they begin to utilize the power of cannabis, we can point other patients in the right direction, towards a cure that really does work. These stories will also hopefully help people to see that cannabis is 100% beneficial to human life and we should be cherishing the plant, rather than sticking it in the shadows.
Trevor Smith is a 54 year old British man with three children. Back in 2012, Smith was told that he had bladder cancer. To make matters worse, the doctors informed this poor man that he would be dead in less than 24 months if surgery was not immediately performed to remove the cancerous nodes that had covered his bladder, prostate, and lymph nodes. With such an invasive surgery and the prospect of losing some of his organs, Smith decided to take matters in to his own hands and began researching alternative medicines on his computer. He stumbled across the cannabis oil cure and was immediately interested. Smith then made the choice to try oil rather then undergo the potentially life threatening surgery.
Ten weeks after Smith was supposed to have the surgery, the doctors say that Smith has gone in to remission, even though they previously warned him of imminent death if he did not go through surgery. Regardless, Smith has now been cancer free for over a year now and he claims that his life is owed to the healing properties of cannabis oil. Now that this 54 year old knows the positive benefits of this treatment, he is insisting that more people be aware of the medical cannabis benefits that most people turn a blind eye to.
Smith and his wife actually wrote a book to chronicle the events that they went through while using the oil. Over ten weeks, Smith ingested 60 grams of cannabis oil a day. The oil regimen was paired with a healthy diet and vitamin supplements that had also been recommended as an alternative to surgery. However, Smith had attempted this method without the oil prior to his discovery of the substance and the cancer was still managing to spread. He and his wife, 55 year old Carol, were not fond users of cannabis before this incident but they have had their minds drastically changed by the increase of life that Smith now possesses.
Studies produced by the National Cancer Institute state that there were anti-tumor effects contained in cannabinoids. When cannabinoids were given to rats and mice, the size of their cancerous tumors shrunk drastically. This happens because the cannabinoids inhibit the growth of new cancer cells, invasive tumors, and the development of new cells that are needed for cancerous tumor growth. The end findings of these studies done by the National Cancer Institute lead to one statement; cannabinoids appear to destroy only tumor cells, while not effecting the healthy cells present in the body, plus offer a form of protection against future attacks of cancerous tumors. The evidence is clear. Cannabis can help the sick and it's time to stop oppressing it.
