An amazing article brought to our attention by the great Jason Beck, owner of AHHS, dispensary in West Hollywood California.
Healthylifeland.com really broke things down regarding cannabis and cancer. After seamlessly pointing out the unjustified prohibition and scheduling of marijuana, one of the most important points is made:
“There have been over 20000 studies and papers on the cannabis plant and its use, yet a third of that is published in the last 4 years.”
Which is an understatement to say the least, it seems that each day more uses, discoveries, revelations, news, mergers, and investments.
But some “nuggets” of information are significantly more important than others…like this one:
Instead of smoking and inhaling marijuana, there are pills infused in coconut oil, allowing them easy entry into the liver. Coconut oil is used because of its fatty acids which bind well with the cannabinoids. It also has health properties. Half of the fat in coconut oil is made from the lauric acid, a fat not found in nature. Lauric acid has been praised for its healing abilities and is present in mother’s milk. It can actually be found in just 3 sources: butterfat, palm kernel and coconut oil.
In the body, this acid is converted into monolaurin, which is a powerful antiviral, antibacterial and antiprotozoal substance. It’s a monoglyceride, meaning it can destroy lipid coated viruses such as HIV, herpes or influenza.
Testimony – a success story
While many are still skeptic for marijuana use in medicine purposes, Stan and Barb Rutner are living proof of its properties.
Barb had two fights with breast cancer while Stan was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which disappeared after treatment. However, it reappeared in 2011, when cancerous nodes were found in Stan’s lungs, and later in his brain. A very tough situation. As he went through therapy, Stan and his family found a natural way of improving his quality of life – cannabis. He and Barb too tried it and it worked wonders.
The Rutner’s daughter Corrine and her husband researched a little and found that the cannabis pills infused with coconut oil were the best choice. After just two weeks, Stan stopped using the oxygen tank. Then he gained weight, and become stronger overall. After a few months, his brain cancer was gone!
They are now completely assured that cannabis is an anti-cancer miracle. According to John, the Rutner’s son-in-law, “There is no doubt in my mind that cannabis pulled my father-in-law out of the wasting stages of cancer and enabled him to gain strength and in turn fight this horrible cell malfunction with success. While many would say that the chemo and radiation could have played apart, he would never have lived long enough to find out without cannabis oil.”
