Cannabis Cures

Studies carried out in California to determine why patients used cannabis for medicinal purposes reported that it relieved pain, muscle spasms, headaches,anxiety, nausea, vomiting, depression, cramps, panic attacks, diarrhea and itching.

Others reported that cannabis improved sleep, relaxation, appetite,concentration and energy.

Many patients use it to prevent side effects from medication or to treat anger issues, involuntary muscle movements and seizures whilst others used it as a substitute for prescription drugs and alcohol.

Many patients in North America (US and Canada) consume CBD with the best CBD vape oil in the world.

These products including CBD pens and weed vaporizers are reviewed on blaze4days.

It can be argued that recreational cannabis use is also of medical benefit in that it relieves stress and thereby acts as a preventative treatment for many stress-related conditions.

If you are diagnosed with any of the conditions that can be treated with cannabis, you are advised to consult with your physician before you begin self medicating.

However, in some countries, such as the U.K., a doctor has a duty to report any illegal drug use that may impair a patient’s ability to drive, so such a confession could have consequences.

Many medical practitioners are becoming aware of the benefits of cannabis medication and most will have no objection to you using it alongside any treatment you may be receiving.

Case History: Corrie Yelland

Corrie Yelland is a remarkable and determined lady who refused serious radiation treatment and against all odds cured her terminal cancer using only cannabis oil.

In May of 2007 she suffered a heart attack and subsequently had a double heart bypass.

As a result of the heart surgery she suffered with chronic debilitating pain from a maligned sternum and post sternoto my neuralgia/syndrome.

She was constantly in pain and ingesting large amounts of various painkillers, and at night, even after taking sleeping pills, she would wake in agony within two hours of falling asleep.

In July of 2011, already coping with two spots of skin cancer on her collarbone, she was stunned to be diagnosed with anal canal cancer.

Following 2 surgeries, the doctors told her that they could not remove all of the cancer and she would have to endure a regime of radiation treatments.

She was informed that this was the worst area of the body to radiate as the radiation beam would hit both her coccyx and pubic bone potentially causing permanent damage.

Additionally,she would suffer second and third degree burns vaginally and rectally, and there was a good possibility both her vagina and rectum would fuse shut from the burns and subsequent scarring.

Refusing to accept this was her only option, Corrie began to research alternatives and discovered information regarding the benefits of cannabis oil.

She began a course of treatment soon after.

As well as ingesting the cannabis oil, she topically applied it to the skin cancer on her collarbone. Within 48 hours, there were visible changes to the skin cancer. In just over a week, the two spots were completely gone.

Elated, she continued ingesting the oil in the hope it would work on the other cancer attacking her body.

Two weeks into her treatment regime the pain in her sternum, as well as the nerve pain, had become almost non-existent.

Before using cannabis, Corrie typically took 10-15 Tylenol 3 per day, along with other drugs, which she managed to reduce to half a Tylenol 3 per day once treatment had began.

Corrie had met a woman from Texas diagnosed at the same time as her with the identical cancer.

They gave each other support and felt fortunate to have found each other as they were identical in many respects:

they were the same age, had gone through the same diagnostic procedure, were at the same stage of the cancer and both had radiation recommended as treatment.

The Texan lady chose to have the radiation. Sadly she died in March 2012 as a result of infection from radiation burns.

She left behind a husband and 12-year-old daughter.

Corrie continued ingesting the oil on a daily basis, slowly increasing the amount she was taking.

She also began filling gelatin capsules with a mixture of the cannabis oil and olive oil and inserting them rectally.

On September 20, 2012,she saw her specialist/surgeon again and heard the news she had only dared to hope for. “It’s gone! I can’t find anything at all.

If it wasn’t for the scar tissue I would never have known you had ever had cancer.”

She received confirmation that the cancer was confirmed to be 100% clear.

Conditions That Cannabis Can Assist With Include:

Alcohol and Opiate Abuse Cannabis can ease both the physical and psychological effects associated with withdrawal from both of these addictive substances.

No clinical trials concerning the efficacy of cannabis as a substitute for alcohol are available, apart from the work of Tod Mikuriya in 1970, who describes patients using cannabis to successfully discontinue abusing alcohol.2 (Cannabis as a Pharmacological Harm Reducer 1997–unpublished).

Tod Hiro Mikuriya was a psychiatrist and an advocate for the legalization of the use of cannabis for medical purposes, and, quite fittingly, he is regarded as the grandfather of the medical cannabis movement in the United States.

Cannabis was listed as a treatment for delirium tremens in medical texts of the1800s.

There are also 19th-Century references to the use of cannabis as a substitute for opiates.

These were among the first documented uses of medical cannabis by European physicians.

It is apparent from reading the old medical texts that many of the new cannabis preparations and methods of administration around today are not new discoveries.

They are, for the most part, just rediscoveries.

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that more than 80,0004 annual deaths are attributed to alcohol use alone.

Untreated and severe alcohol withdrawal can kill you, mainly due to seizures.

Fortunately, these fatalities are almost completely preventable if people are properly weaned off alcohol using gradually decreasing amounts of alcohol itself or medication.

In contrast, the CDC does not even have a category for deaths caused by the use of cannabis because there have never been any.

Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is the leading cause of dementia amongst the elderly, and with the ever-increasing population, cases of Alzheimer’s disease are expected to triple over the next 50 years.

Investigation shows that cannabis can prevent the formation of deposits in the brain associated with this degenerative disease.

Researchers at the Scripps Research Institute in California found that the active component of cannabis, Delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) inhibits the enzymeacetyl cholinesterase (AChE) as well as prevents AChE-induced amyloid betapeptide (Abeta) accumulation, the key indicator of Alzheimer’s disease.

There is also research concluding that amongst the other cannabis compounds, cannabidiol(CBD), which has no psychotropic effect, may represent a very promising agent with the highest prospect for therapeutic use in Alzheimer’s patients, many of whom would find that the effect of THC alone could actually add to the confusion they experience.

Whilst THC is recognized as an important compound in the treatment of dementia, it needs to be administered with a corresponding or even higher value of CBD, which research has shown will lessen the psychotropic effect of THC on the elderly patient.

This can easily be achieved by careful selection of the cannabis strain used for medication and high CBD content cannabis strains are recommended for use in the treatment of dementia patients.

There are pharmaceutical medicines that can treat the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, but there is no cure.

Some medicines will keep memory loss and other symptoms from progressing but this is a short-term solution.

Compared to drugs currently prescribed for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, THC in particular has been shown to be a considerably superior inhibitor of Abeta accumulation.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is characterized by the death of motor neurons leading to loss of limb control, breathing, swallowing, speech and widespread cellular dysfunction.

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is characterized by the death of motor neurons leading to loss of limb control, breathing, swallowing, speech and widespread cellular dysfunction.

The condition refers to a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.

This is a fatal, degenerative disease marked by progressive muscle weakness andatrophy.

Research has shown that cannabis may help ALS patients by relieving pain, spasticity, drooling and appetite loss.

In scientific studies it has been shown that THC, along with other cannabinoids, can benefit laboratory mice specifically bred with ALS.

This mounting evidence of cannabinoids halting the progression of the condition has started to change the attitudes of doctors, and prominent researchers have recently called for ALS clinical trials with cannabinoids on humans.Case History: Cathy Jordan Cathy Jordan was diagnosed with ALS in 1986 and given 3-5 years to live by her neurologist. Cathy began using cannabis to treat her ALS in the late 1980s.

Nearly decades later she is still alive and coping with ALS.

Initially, doctors wouldn’t accept that cannabis could be responsible for Cathy’s survival and informed her that smoking anything would impair her lung function.

Cathy asked her doctors if they would take a drug if it was neuroprotective, an antioxidant and anti inflammatory. They replied that they would and asked her if she knew one, she informed them she did and it was cannabis.

Cathy has said, “There are ALS patients’ associations that fight for the right of patients to die with dignity.

But what about my right to life? Keeping my medicine illegal removes my right to life.”

Anorexia Nervosa

The prescription drug Olanzapine has been shown to be effective in treating certain aspects of this condition as it increases appetite, causes the body to store fat and helps to raise body mass index.

However, the drug can have serious side effects including hives, difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, high blood sugar, numbness or weakness, confusion, problems with vision,speech, or balance, fever, chills, body aches, flu-like symptoms, sores in the mouth and throat, swelling in the hands or feet and many other complications.

Cannabis has none of these side effects and can increase appetite and ease anxiety.

Dr. Elliot Berry, a consultant to the World Health Organization, has conducted a trial using cannabis oil to treat this eating disorder.

Early results show that cannabinoids stimulate a chemical in the brain that effectively boosts appetite in cancer anorexia patients. In another unrelated trial it was reported that after 21 days of in patient cannabis smoking, both body weight gain and caloric consumption were higher in casual and heavy users than in the control subjects who did not use cannabis.
