Baby’s Brain Tumor Gone After Dad Puts Marijuana On Pacifier [Video]
Medical marijuana is gaining media attention, along with general acceptance by many. Now, more and more cases have reported cannabis use in children. The majority of marijuana use has been to help children with cancer stave off the negative side effects of chemotherapy.

But what about marijuana as a cure?

Dr. William Courtney has seen marijuana cure cancer. In an online interview is Huffington Post, the doctor told the story of an 8-month-old baby diagnosed with a brain tumor.

The tumor was inoperable. The baby would have to undergo chemotherapy.

But before they began treatment, the infant’s father got a hold of some medicinal marijuana, and began applying the cannabis oil to his baby’s pacifier.

Within two months, the tumor had shrunk so much that chemo was not needed.

Saying he was “quite a skeptic 5 or 6 years ago”, Dr. Courtney told Huff Post that “my youngest patient is 8 months old, and had a very massive centrally located inoperable brain tumor.” The child’s father pushed for non-traditional treatment utilizing cannabis.

“They were putting cannabinoid oil on the baby’s pacifier twice a day, increasing the dose… And within two months there was a dramatic reduction, enough that the pediatric oncologist allowed them to go ahead with not pursuing traditional therapy.”

The tumor was remarkably reduced after eight months of treatment. Dr. Courtney pointed out that the success of the cannabis approach means that “this child, because of that, is not going to have the long-term side effects that would come from a very high dose of chemotherapy or radiation… currently the child’s being called a miracle baby, and I would have to agree that this is the perfect response that we should be insisting is frontline therapy for all children before they launch off on all medications that have horrific long term side effects.”

Hmmm...The pediatric oncologist probably lost a big amount of $$$ (I'm guessing at least $30,000) when the chemotherapy was no longer necessary for the baby.

I'm sure oncologists HATE cannabis oil.

This is the most ridiculous thing I've heard all week. Marijuana does not cure cancer. Yea it's a plant. Yea it should be legal. Yea its not physically addictive. But no, it does not cure cancer. I'm sick of people acting like it's some kind of medical panacea that can cure everything like a wonder drug. I'm a believer in traditional Chinese medicine, and chronic marijuana use has many adverse affects. Very occasional use has some mental benefits, but there is nothing it can cure. They had the most complex and complete understanding of the human body that any culture has ever had, and if marijuana could cure cancer, believe me, they would have realized it.

We now have everyone going overboard with the legalization argument. I don't believe we have to pretend marijuana has health benefits to legalize it. I think it should just be legal because this is supposed to be a free country. But I'm not under any delusions that it cures cancer. There's plenty of alternative, non-chemo cures of cancer that work, such a acupuncture and herbs (formulated by a medical doctor with years of training). This is why acupuncture gets a bad rap. Now I remember why I hate hippies.

 Quoting: MissionInvisible


Oil extracted from the flowerbuds and small leaves is
specifically what works.
(Very easily done at home, with - for instance - acetone. Over here, acetone is about 8€ per litre. The ganja itself
grows for free.)

In the words of Mr Rick Simpson:
- You can smoke it 'til the cows come home, but that won't
cure cancer.

Bloody fascinating, how the stone that the builder refused
is turning the head corner stone before our very eyes.
The global cannabis prohibition is the absolute best
political thinking machine ever made available to the masses.

The cat is out of the bag.
TPTB are going to have to take away the free internet.
But chances are it's too late already.

We The People need to demand legalization in the form of
totally free home-growing.
Anything else = Monsanto, Pioneer, Syngenta...

bonghit

Not that I personally ask bloody anybody, what I can or
can't grow in my own yard.

It has actually been shown to have some anti-cancer properties, along with other medical benefits.

I wouldn't bet it's more effective then Chemo just because of one case (Although It's almost defiently less harmful) but it's worth looking into.

So Marijuana does not cure cancer....But periwinkle does?

Periwinkle
[link to www.livingrainforest.org]

"This pretty plant from Madagascar gives us two very important cancer-fighting medicines: vinblastine and vincristine. Vinblastine has helped increase the chance of surviving childhood leukaemia from 10% to 95%, while vincristine is used to treat Hodgkins’ Disease.

Traditional Madagascan healers used the rosy periwinkle for treating diabetes. This led to its study by western scientists who then discovered its anti-cancer properties



Lots of plants cure cancer. No surprise there:

[link to www.eolss.net]


The only difference between cannabis and periwinkle and the 3,000 other plants that have cancer treating properties is that research into cannabis has been blocked. Otherwise we would've been using it for brain and liver cancers for years, if not decades. The only thing "special" about cannabis, is that we made such a useful plant illegal for such stupid reasons.

[link to blog.norml.org]

"It’s the ‘Catch-22’ that has plagued medical marijuana advocates and patients for decades. Lawmakers and health regulators demand clinical studies on the safety and efficacy of medical cannabis, but the federal agency in charge of such research bars these investigations from ever taking place.

But it took until now for the federal government to finally admit it.

A spokesperson for the U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) told The New York Times last week that the agency does “not fund research focused on the potential medical benefits of marijuana.”

They did...

"According to Chinese legend, the emperor Shen Nung (circa 2700 B.C.; also known as Chen Nung) discovered marijuana's healing properties as well as those of two other mainstays of Chinese herbal medicine, ginseng and ephedra. In a compendium of drug recipes compiled in 1 A.D., based on traditions from the time of Shen Nung, marijuana is depicted as an ideogram of plants drying in a shed (see Figure 2.1). This ancient text, which is considered to be the world's oldest pharmacopoeia, recommends marijuana for more than 100 ailments, including gout, rheumatism, malaria, and absentmindedness. Centuries later a Chinese medical text (1578 A.D.) described the use of marijuana to treat vomiting, parasitic infections, and hemorrhage. Marijuana continues to be used in China as a folk remedy for diarrhea and dysentery and to stimulate the appetite.2"

Since the Chinese medicine defined cancer by its symptoms, not as "cancer" like we do in the West, and vomiting is the primary symptom of brain cancer, they did indeed recommend cannabis for for brain cancer.

WHY would these people LIE about getting cured from cancer by MMJ?

you-tube is full of TESTIMONIES about people using MMJ to CURE all types of dis-ease .... why would they lie? they aren't getting paid to post these Utube vids ... and the Am Cancer Asc did a study back in 1975 that PROVED that MMJ cured Cancer, but because they weren't allowed to prescribe it - the shelf-ed the study ... which means that all the people who died from Cancer since then - didn't have to die!


don't you see how this discovery - "that they haven't found anything MMJ CAN'T cure" ... would KILL the Medical industry?

there wouldn't be anything for them to do but set bones sew up wounds and plastic surgery ! The entire industry will collapse ... so the reason why we haven't been made aware of THE CURE is because of ECONOMICS ... one of the BIG CORPS that run this country would be ELIMINATED COMPLETELY ... taking the Pharm Cos with them


personally I would rather see everyone on meds - taking MMJ instead of psychotropics, kemo, oxycotton etc etc etc


the medical industry has had centuries to prove themselves - so far they haven't cured anything - they treat the symptoms and not the disease ... and they kill more people than they "save" for a life time of DIS-ease and disabiliting DRUGS
