Yet it’s still classified as a “drug with no medicinal purposes”?
States in the US may be one step closer to legalizing the recreational use of marijuana, especially now that the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has updated its website FAQs to include studies proving cannabis as a natural remedy for cancer.
As InfoWars reports, NCI updated its page to include various studies revealing how cannabis “may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow” while also protecting normal, healthy cells.
“A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancer cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells. Studies in mouse models of metastatic breast cancer showed that cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.”
The full list provided by the National Cancer Institute follows:
- Cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.
- Cannabinoids may protect against inflammation of the colon and may have potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer, and possibly in its treatment.
- A laboratory study of delta -9-THC in hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) cells showed it damaged or killed the cancer cells. The same study of delta-9-THC in models of liver cancer showed that it had anti-tumor effects. Delta-9-THC has been shown to cause these effects by acting on molecules that may also be found in non-small cell lung cancer cells and breast cancer cells.
- A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancer cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells. Studies of metastatic breast cancer showed that cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.
- A laboratory study of cannabidiol in human glioma cells showed that when given along with chemotherapy, CBD may make chemotherapy more effective and increase cancer cell death without harming normal cells. Studies showed that CBD together with delta-9-THC may make chemotherapy such as temozolomide more effective.
These studies are considered by the NCI as preclinical. They were all done using animals. According to them, no clinical trials of cannabis use for the treatment of cancer in humans have been published.
- Delta-9-THC and other cannabinoids stimulate appetite and can increase food intake.
- Cannabinoid receptors have been studied in the brain, spinal cord, and nerve endings throughout the body to understand their roles in pain relief.
- Cannabinoids have been studied for anti-inflammatory effects that may play a role in pain relief.
That’s not all, in April, the NIDA stated:
“Evidence from one animal study suggests that extracts from whole-plant marijuana can shrink 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.”
How can government agencies conclude the above and the FDA still classify marijuana as a “drug with no medicinal purposes”? Perhaps this video will enlighten you on the reasons why.
Despite the numerous, proven benefits of marijuana, the federal government aims to keep it illegal while the FDA approves expensive prescription drugs with more side effects and far less research.

I have read about this recently. As a chronic pain sufferer with Fibromyalgia and lower back pain, I am on a cocktail of prescribed drugs which certainly do have unpleasant side effects. You can legally buy CBD oil but it is very expensive, although I would imagine not nearly as expensive as the cost of prescribed drugs. I think I will be investing in some in the near future, so will let you know if it works for pain. As a person who’s both parents died from Cancer it could be a health benefit for hopefully keeping me clear from that too! 🙂
just CBD alone may not be enough. then all the cannabinoids including THC are together like they should be, the effectiveness is increased drastically
I too have chronic back problems. For me, weed does not get rid of the pain per se, but rather changes my brains perception of it. It still hurts, but it doesn’t bother me as much.
Pam have you tried extracts at all, or ingesting it? I find if your gonna smoke it your better off with a vaporizer!
The same source cited in this article (see second link to nhi) tates that :
At this time, there is not enough evidence to recommend that patients inhale or ingest Cannabis as a treatment for cancer-related symptoms or side effects of cancer therapy (see Question 7).
Somehow the author of this very biast ‘article’ forgot to incude that poin!
Please read the research behid the claims, veryfy and veryfy again. It is this wbsite that you should acuse of lying not the companies trying to bring the cure..
I wish these people wuld stop faking scientific news by takingonly the parts of the research that fits with their siplistic conspiracy theories. Research is being done, extensively on all fronts, including canaboids. Why dont we support science instead? The author here exploits people hope and feelings, quite disguasting I think…
I am interested to know where to buy medicinal cannabis oil for my sister and dear friend whom are both dying of cancer
I was introduced to Phoenix Tears, oil extracts from marijuana while visiting family in Colorado. There is no man made prescribed medication that even compares to the help Phoenix Tears can offer. Write congress and demand the prohibition on marijuana to end. The government has no right to withhold natural medicine from the US populous.
I have been taking legal CBD oils for over a year and they do not do nearly any justice to what the entire cannabis plant contains. It’s like comparing a non-alcoholic beer compared with a regular beer. In time we should see the US legalizing this drug. Let the people decide.
This is so completely DISGUSTING, how we’ve reached the point to now even Oklahoma is allowing CBDs but the Federal law still considered “no benefit”. My father is fighting cancer RIGHT NOW, but as he is too much of a “law abiding citizen” to risk prison time even to save his own life. I wonder how much $$$ Big Pharma is spending to keep this illegal?
psst, make some cannabutter with the real thing and sneak it into his food.
I started taking cannabis less than a year ago for lifelong depression and anxiety. I am also an alcoholic and a breast cancer survivor. My depression and anxiety are cured. I stopped drinking and have no desire to put that poison in my body again, my cancer has not returned, and my arthritic pain is much lessened. I smoke it but prefer to vape and eat when possible. Those of you still pussyfooting around this medication because of the stigma or because it is illegal,lol, are digging your own grave. This is Gods medicine and everyone can grow it and access it for free. Why do you think big pharmaceutical companies who rape you of your money want it to stay illegal? Think for yourselves people.
It truly works.! I make the oil myself with coconut oil and bake brownies for my brother. 2 of his tumors are completely gone and the other 3 have shrunk 40% after just six weeks. God is great and it was put here for a reason!
Hi Kris, would you mind telling me the recipe? 🙂
Big pharma: Making billions off of millions of deaths. — I was prescribed 3 medications for anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I took these toxic medications for over 3 years and paid THOUSANDS. I am 100% cured thanks to this miracle drug that is ALL NATURAL. No negative side effects in my case and NO risk of overdose. OPEN YOUR EYES, PEOPLE! The exchange rate for your life is high!
I hate it when people give God credit for anything especially natural products like pot which evolved over millions of years. Please keep your god crap to yourself as I find it extremely offensive. If there is a real god there would be NO cancer…
Fuck you Paul it’s one celled creatures like you who make me sick. It takes a stupid person to not believe in God
And it takes ignorant asses like you two just to show how much of a douchebag humanity can be when it comes to opposing opinions.
Regardless of whether God was involved or not is irrelevant. The fact is that this is here, and is helpful to the human race. Arguing who’s right and wrong about the theoretical origin of a natural plant is fool-hardy and pointless, and you’re just wasting both of your own valuable times when you could be doing something productive.
Jim. Why are you so offended by a person who you don’t know who does not believe in God as you seem to but yet feel that demeaning this person or swearing is fine for a Christian?
Jim Cantrell: Your comment above to ‘Paul’ is entirely offensive, poorly written and probably reflects what you and your fellow believers in fairy stories like to consider as your superiority over those who choose not to believe in supernatural entities.
In my experience, those who do not believe in religion, are those who in fact DO think for themselves, while other, insolent and superstitious peasants can only believe and do exactly what they are told to do, and believe what they are spoonfed by religious parasites and nutjobs.
Shut the fuck up. You are offensive to me. We are discussing the value of Help oil here, not religion.
Accept God in your life and there would be no more cancer or paine
Bullshit. I know many people who died of cancer who believed in god. What you say here is just a flat out lie.
I think the comment may have been, may, have been an attempt at humour. Who knows though. Lot’s of fanatics out there.
so stupid you are
Who gives a flying fuck what Paul thinks-I don’t care if you’re offended. People like you look for offense under every bush and around every corner, you intolerant schlub.
I feel sorry for you
Made up to hear all the success story’s if any of my family ever got cancer Im getting the weed out cancer was always the fear at the back of my mind for my mum and dad now Im liberated from fear ??
It used to be legal and you were fined if you did not grow marijuana. Now the oil companies and pharmaceutical companies have made it hard for everyone for bulls**t reasons
wow where are you people from.god or no god pot is great…
nice remedy,these pillocks who reason like a sackful of hammers should try marijuana,it could be a remedy for madness too.rant off your rusted brain but when it gets to God,glue them lips.
So it “may”help.

I started taking two drops of CBD oil a day in Sept and by Dec my arthritis gave me no more pain and the creakinbg crunching neck returned to full silent flexibility. My balance returned, as did a normal pain free life. I highly recommend it if you’re suffering. High Intensity CBD oil.
May I ask where it can be purchased and do you need a card? I’m in CA and also have 28 yrs in recovery so I don’t want to violate my clean time either. Is this or any products Non-intoxicating?
They make more money of pharmaceutical and off killing us that’s why this is illegal . It’s control like everything government does and funny I honestly don’t think we were even supposed to have a government or royalty or anything I think we were supposed to be bros and sis of the earth and share care love and help bit we let society create this system ……sad…now it’s hate, racism and more .. humans are a sad destructive race who are terrified. We destroy everything and fear the unknown and in natural…sad..sad..sad world
If you believe this bullshit, you really are a fucking Republican dumbfuck.
The author of this article (whoever might be) has at minimum in it’s mind to misinform.
Otherwise I can’t understand why in all the points that he/she copied from the National Cancer Institute, the word mice/animans is ommited.
All the points apply to mice/animals and there is no study anywhere to show the same correlation to humans.
Google Ricky Simpson Oil. There is also a video with testimonials.
I’m a believer. I have gotten my Mom on water soluble BioCBD and had given out bottles as Bday gifts. My Mom was on Hospice with lung and liver cancer in the Spring of 2013, not given much of a chance to live. Now, she has been off of Hospice for 2 years now and continues to look and feel great. She had steroid shots and now has incorporated the CBD oil in her regime and feels a noticeable difference. She is walking between 5-10 thousand steps a day, not bad for someone who wasn’t supposed to survive the summer of 2013. – Sally
