Destruction of CB Receptors

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by timdecker, Sep 28, 2012.

  1. Has anyone come across an article that talks about chemo/radiation destroying CB receptors? I am curious because I read a post a while ago that talks about cannabis not having as strong of a anti-proliferative and anti-metastatic effect when combined with traditional forms of treatment.

    Thoughts?
     
  2. I couldn't find anything on it at PubMed!

    CB receptors are constantly being made, but they can't be properly made without Omega 3! The "average American diet" is VERY low in Omega 3!

    A lack of working CB receptors can leave you open to cancer!

    Also, chemo and radiation themselves, can cause cancers!

    On the other hand, CBD (cannabidiol, the #2 cannabinoid) can get cancer cells to revert back to NORMAL!

  3. Thanks storm.

    I've read all those articles/reviews numerous times. I am just trying to confirm (or rationalize) the though that chemo/radiation will inhibit the positive "anti-cancerous" affects the cannabis has to offer.
     
  4. anyone know where I can get cannabis oil to help treat my dads cancer?
     

  5. The dispensary. Or are you talking illegal state?
     

  6. Well medical marijuana just became legal here in CT yesterday. So there's not much available yet. Plus the regulations in CT are pretty strict and needs to come from a pharmacist. I see you're from CT...do you know anything I dont?

    they inject you with chemicals to kill the most difficult to kill cell growth known to the planet.... fighting death with more powerful death

    There doesn't even need to be an argument, radiation and chemo can and do many times lead to more cancer or organ issues.... my cousin had leukemia, he went through many many rounds of chemo/radiation/marrow transplants. Eventually was classified as "cured" and then died 6 months later from organ failure caused by the very same chemicals that "cured" him

    Edit: and for the sake of the "argument" he smoked/vaped/ate a lot of cannabis, and it clearly lost the battle to modern medicine
     

  8. Are you able to grow in CT if you have a recommendation? If so you may be able to make you own medicine in 3-4 months. My first harvest was terrible in terms of medical grade smoking cannabis, but it was just fine for making it into Rick Simpson Oil.
