can marijuana help for cancer. how much marijuana taken in day for better?

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by andrewrayy, Nov 23, 2022.

  1. can marijuana help for cancer. how much marijuana taken in day for better
     
  2. Yes it can help. I suggest watching this (linked) movie.
    It doesn't always work, but it has helped millions.
     
  3. It can help according to animal and test tube studies. But large scale testing in humans hasn't been done yet, and what works in a test tube or mouse, may not work the same in a human.

    However, there are many anecdotal reports of RSO working, but there's only one case study on using RSO (Rick Simpson's Oil) so far. Although the girl's leukemia WAS responding, she died due to complications from her previous chemo and radiation treatment. The case study gives the details, but what I found amazing was that although her family was giving her "street" RSO made from different strains, her leukemia responded to each batch after adjusting the dose!

    "Cannabinoid resin extract is used as an effective treatment for ALL with a positive Philadelphia chromosome mutation and indications of dose-dependent disease control. The clinical observation in this study revealed a rapid dose-dependent correlation."

    Another thing to get is CBD! Now, CBD is "OK" for pain, but when it comes to tumors, it does two things that conventional cancer treatment doesn't do!

    Cancer tricks your body into growing new blood vessels (angiogenesis) to the tumor bringing it more food which helps the tumor grow even faster!

    Then CBD can also "defuse" the ID-1 gene that makes some cancers so aggressive! “Cannabidiol as a novel inhibitor of Id-1 gene expression in aggressive breast cancer cells” where “CBD represents the first nontoxic exogenous agent that can significantly decrease Id-1 expression in metastatic breast cancer cells leading to the down-regulation of tumor aggressiveness.” https://mct.aacrjournals.org/content/6/11/2921.long
    (FYI- ID-1 cancers include some leukemia, colorectal, pancreatic, lung, ovarian, and brain cancers.)

    CBD may help chemo work even better! “The Antitumor Activity of Plant-Derived Non- Psychoactive Cannabinoids” where “Cannabinoids however also sensitize, and in some cases resensitize, tumors to first-line agents. A cannabinoid drug treatment with a low toxicity profile that together produces direct antitumor activity and sensitizes tumors to existing first-line agents is an attractive therapeutic modality.” The antitumor activity of plant-derived non-psychoactive cannabinoids

    Another thing that may help is DHA, an Omega-3 found in fish oil.

    An Omega-3 That’s Poison for Cancer Tumors (scitechdaily - 2021) (fairly technical explanation)
    https://scitechdaily.com/an-omega-3-thats-poison-for-cancer-tumors/

    “For an adult,” the UCLouvain researchers stated, “it’s recommended to consume at least 250 mg of DHA per day. But studies show that our diet provides on average only 50 to 100 mg per day. This is well below the minimum recommended intake.”

    (FYI- "Eat This" is kind of an "flakey" site, but they do OK about half the time, and explain things very simply)

    One Major Effect of Taking Omega-3 Supplements, Says New Study. One Major Effect of Taking Omega-3 Supplements, Says New Study — Eat This Not That

    “A new study recently published in the journal Cell Metabolism finds that one of the three main omega-3 fatty acids, the one called docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) may kill cancer cells. Yvan Larondelle, Ph.D., who co-supervised the research, explained in an interview with Eat This, Not That! that when cancerous tumor cells eat DHA and other highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA), they become addicted. This buildup of fatty acids can kill tumor cells, almost like poison.”

    And one last link to something that happened a while back here at GC-

    Hope that helps,

  4. I've found with research too that omega three forms anti inflammatory endocannabinoids in our cells ....! as our cells rely on essential fatty acids to form fully functional endocannabinoids with the omega three form is an anti inflammatory pre cursor to forming ECs ... omega six tends to make more inflammation in our cells and the diets of people are chocked full of N-6 with hardly any N-3 in there . I( mean look at cooking oils and prepared foods in the Grocery with only N-6 as the main oil in there , like 95% of common foods .
    our cells will form lipid signaling based on the lipids we provide the cells ... eating mostly N-3 will provide lipids that make less inflammation in our cells and less cancers etc... while N-6 tends to promoter more inflammation and more cancers
