Cannabis Oil And Cancer

    CLEAR receives a lot of requests for information about treating cancer with cannabis oil.  These relate of course to the very exciting stories that come from Rick Simpson, his film “Run From The Cure” and the organisation Phoenix Tears.

    In particular there is one image going around the internet that claims “chemotherapy kills 7 out of 10 whilst good oil cures 7 out of ten”.

    Peter Reynolds gave this answer to a recent inquiry:

    It’s not on the CLEAR page because I’m afraid it’s nonsense. 

    It has also been denounced by Moms for Marijuana as it was falsely attributed to them.

    There is some very exciting anecdotal evidence about cannabis oil but it is false, misleading and extremely cruel to make irresponsible statements like this.

    While there is some good scientific evidence that some skin cancers have been successfully treated with cannabis oil, all the solid evidence about other cancers is either in animal experiments or “in vitro”.  Also, nearly all the studies aren’t about cannabis but about individual cannabinoids, often synthetic analogues.

    Proper research is urgently needed into cannabis oil because there are some very exciting possibilities. Personally, if I was diagnosed with cancer I would want to try it, not least because it couldn’t cause me any harm.

    There’s a huge difference between that though and making the sort of irresponsible claims that picture does.

      Tommy Chong from, “Cheech and Chong” has pancreatic cancer. Recently he has spoke about taking Cannibis oil and using it to treat his illness. I’m not convinced it’s nonsense. Do you just think the stories are folklore? Or is there something to this that we don’t fully understand.

    • http://www.peter-reynolds.co.uk Peter Reynolds

      I’m quite certain that some people have achieved fantastic results with oil. What’s nonsense is the claim that oil “cures 7 out of 10″ people with cancer and other similar “snake oil” claims. When you’re dealing with people’s lives it’s just terrible to make these fake, pseudo-scientific claims. By all means encourage people to try cannabis oil as it is remarkably safe and there is good theory behind the idea that it might work.

    • stickybud

      I feel the value in cannabis oil is from taking it regularly over a long period of time, as a preventative. I don’t doubt that someone starting to take it upon diagnosis of cancer could achieve results if it were still in the early stages, but there must be a point where it is hoping against hope to expect results.

    • Focusonpeace

      What about juicing the fresh flowers? I heard that does work. Cannabis does have anti cannabis properties. Those people who have had a reduction in tumour size are not lying. Cannabis oil and juice are a great preventative. Apparently juice is good for people who dont want to get high. Ageing and heating cannabis turns the THCA cannabinoid (which is non psychoactive) to THC which is.

    • http://www.peter-reynolds.co.uk Peter Reynolds

      Agreed and agreed but we need proper evidence, not hearsay and anecdote before we make claims that people can rely on

    • Focusonpeace

      Too bad research is being discouraged (unless they are trying to prove the harms)

    • http://www.facebook.com/john.watkin1 John Watkin

      I think opening the subject as nonsense is a bit harsh. But agree that people need to be swayed by facts, they have been manipulated enough by there governments. Also it was my understanding that
      Rick Simpson gave his oil away free in the hope of curing and educating people. Some thing must have given him good cause to fight the law to do so. Many people risk imprisonment in the UK because they believe in the product. Hardly snake oil salesmen.

    • http://www.peter-reynolds.co.uk Peter Reynolds

      What is described as nonsense, quite clearly, is the image being posted around that claims oil “cures 7 out of 10″ people with cancer. This is dangerous and irresponsible misinformation.

      I have no doubt that Rick Simpson himself is genuine and altruistic. By the same token I know that there are those in the UK that are exploitative of medicinal users, claiming to give medicine away but in fact profiteering, just like any street dealer, in fact far worse because of the deception.

    • ChristopherSawtell

      What’s nonsense is the claim that oil “cures 7 out of 10″ people with cancer

      What evidence have you got to make this assertion?

      I’d suggest you go to Nova Scotia, in Canada, and do a survey by asking people who have used Rick Simpson’s hemp oil what happened to them. Then come back and either confirm or amend your assertion.

    • http://www.peter-reynolds.co.uk Peter Reynolds

      You know far better than that Christopher. It’s not for me or anyone to disprove such an outlandish claim. It’s for those making it to present evidence to support it.

      However, your suggestion about surveying people who have used oil shows that you don’t understand what proper scientific evidence is. Ideally you’d also have to look at people who haven’t used oil and you’d have to do everything possible to rule out confounding factors. Until then such claims, while clearly indicating the necessity for proper trials, are no different from a religious belief. They are exciting, interesting and offer hope but no more than that.

    • http://www.peter-reynolds.co.uk Peter Reynolds

      How on earth is my opinion in the way of opening a discussion? I’ve started this discussion and as I wrote above “proper research is urgently needed”!!

      Here’s the correspondence with MfM. You see, they too are concerned about overclaiming and misleading people.

      26 July Peter Reynolds

      I am very concerned to see your name associated with this ridiculous claim:

      https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=212813535497230&set=o.117293081656871&type=1&theater

      Nothing damages progress in the use of cannabis as medicine more than crazy statements like these. Please disassociate yourselves from it.

      26 July Moms for Marijuana

      Yes, we are disappointed as well. I believe it was created for one of our contests and the owner switched it when we questioned the source. This is the edited version –

      Every time it’s posted on our page, it has a different owner. We dispute the claim in the comments, invite anyone with info to back it up to please post sources, and to please remove our name from the image. Unfortunately it’s been difficult to track down the original source of the photo.

      Thank you for bringing it to our attention! We appreciate that!

      Peter you are right in stating we should not over emphasise the benefits of cannabis when it hasnt been fully proved by scientists, because we are then the same as the people who have been lying all these years about it.
      however there is so many cases of ‘good news’ when people are using things like cannabis oil that it really ought to be at the top of any good medical scientists agenda worldwide.

      http://beforeitsnews.com/health/2011/08/govt-study-proves-thc-from-cannabis-destroys-leukemia-breast-and-lung-cancer-cells-1003374.html 

      http://www.cannabisculture.com/content/2012/09/20/Scientists-Find-Cannabis-Compound-Stops-Metastasis-Aggressive-Cancers 

      these 2 links are encouraging and i think proves there is something to the claims by normal people 

      “What we found was that his Cannabidiol could essentially ‘turn off’ the ID-1,” Desprez told HuffPost. The cells stopped spreading and returned to normal.this quote is basically what they found in the video what if cannabis could cure cancer?
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bMt83_IWkE I am sure you have seen it but everyone involved in the video are experts in their field Jeffrey Hergenrather, MD on Medical Marijuana in California this is an interview he gave about the scientific effects of cannabishttp://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=24364 I dont mean to undermine your claim, as your not saying cannabis doesnt do what people are claiming just that we need to be careful overstating the factsBut what gets me is yes perhaps cannabis wont work 100% of the time with everything it should work with, but what does work 100% of the time…very few medicinesand yet doctors can doll out pills like no tommorow and if those pills dont work dont worry they have something else.
      So cannabis may or may not help/cure cancer. If it only works in 70% of cases then so be it, it still cures 70% of the time, that is better than the alternative which according to a morgue doctor i read an interview of. He has seen no one in his 30+ year career die of cancer, instead every cancer patient he has seen died of chemotherapy which says it all really.there is increasingly more and more overwhelming scientific evidence suggesting cannabis is what people claim and that i think is the message we should really be getting across.

      I am Miss Michell who unfortunately suffered from Skin Cancer, which for me, is basically a Death Sentence on my life, the thoughts of having Skin Cancer burns and itches simultaneously in my heart that i was dead alive (and looks hideous). I heard that Hemp Oil could help, and for the price i was willing to try anything that would save my My Life. What I found out was astonishing! It was instantly getting better and better after 60 days of using and most of the virus are gone and just little medication left for me. It’s also a light, i am very grateful to Doctor Mac Donnald for Selling the Hemp Oil for me and his Medical Advises, for all those that have problems with Cancer Please Please Kindly let the Doctor Know at:drmacdonnald@gmail.com,

      An amazing testimony on Cannabis or Hemp Oil which saved husband and my family….My name is Rosemarie Johnson, i live in Australia,and I’m happily married to a lovely and caring husband, with two kids. A very big problem occurred in my family five year ago, between me, my husband and my family. so terrible that the family was devastated with no more hope for a better life as we all had cancer, including my lovely kids. I never wanted to stay alive again, as there was nothing else to live for, because we knew we where not going to survive the trails of this cancer. But God so willing, on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my family. So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my family back, is to ask for Doctor Henderson help with his Hemp Oil, because it has really worked for her too. So i never believed in Hemp Oil, but i had no other choice, than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of Doctor Henderson whom she visited.{hendersonmedicalservice@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me, and Doctor Henderson assured me that i will get my family back in full health with 90 days of being his hemp oil treatment. What an amazing statement!! I never believed, so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do and then my family began taking the Hemp Oil treatment gradually, after 3 months, So surprisingly, my family have hope for a better life went for scan of this cancer and with a new face and smile written on the family linage, the scan result showed that my husband and my kids cancer was total killed with a hundred percent assurance from the doctor and they said my was left with little particles!! So this is how my family was healed with lots of love and joy,and the family is the best ever on earth and all Thanks and glory goes to God and Doctor Henderson for saving the family. Thank you thank you thank you, you are the saviour of my family Doctor Henderson and the family will sing you praise and bring more friend to buy your medication.

      I am enjoying this discussion, and very intrigued by the stories and testimonials I have read so far. I have high hopes (no pun intended) for the futures of cancer patients with this gift from the earth. When I hear of someone who has a recent diagnosis, I ask them to open their minds and google the topic. Whether or not certain claims are accurate or exaggerated, as Peter states, it couldn’t cause any harm.

      My main purpose in commenting here, however, is to express my disgust at the one person, taking on several identities from various locations around the world telling their stories and ending with an email link to one of a few “doctors”. To this writer… I can tell you are the same person, because your writing style is identical in each submission. The grammar is terrible, things are improperly capitalized, the way you set up your paragraphs is the same in each, the way you give your “name” and “country” at the end, etc. You are not helping the pro-cannabis treatment argument, when it’s obvious there are lies attached to your comments. Dr’s Whoever, if you want to market your product, put some time, effort, a little money, and some true and fair statements about your work into your marketing techniques, rather than creating false testimonials. You have just cleared yourselves of ANY credibility from my mind, and probably that of the other people here who read your phony testimonials. Good grief.

    • Mr James smith

      My Name is Mr James smith .I will love to share my testimony to all the people in the forum because I never thought i will have my life back, but with the help of Dr. Henderson and his cannabis oil which is made from the Indica buds, i am a healthy and happy man that is free from cancer.
      My dream was high and i was at the peak of my career when i was diagnose with colon cancer with metastasis to the lungs and liver. I several Chemo and Radiation along with natural therapy, but unfortunately, all the money i spend on this treatment for more than 11 years was a waste of funds, my condition became more critical and dangerous that i was even given 6 months to live by my doctor.
      I was very fortunate to learn about the Cannabis oil from a friend of mine and he gave me the contact of Dr. Henderson (hendersonmedicalservice@gmail.com) which i contacted him and bought the cannabis oil which was made from the Indica Buds from him.
      I will gladly like to inform the world today that i am no more a cancer patient.
      Doctor Henderson cure my cancer within 5 months and am back at my jobs and everything is working fine. I am planning on getting married next 3 months and i would like to invite every body to my wedding. Dr. Henderson Thanks for saving a soul, you are highly recommended.
      For all cancer patient that are suffering from, cancer of different type, I would like you to contact Dr. Henderson : hendersonmedicalservice@gmail.com for cure to your cancer and with his medication, you are guaranteed to be cured within the period of 3 to 4 months.
      hendersonmedicalservice@gmail.com
      Thank you Dr. Henderson.
