   Some of you may have heard of Phoenix Tears, Rick Simpson Oil, Cannabis Oil, Hemp oil, etc. These oils contain various cannabinoids with Phoenix Tears/Rick Simpson Oil containing a high concentration of THC and Hemp Oil generally being devoid of THC. Claims have gone out that Rick Simpson Oil (contains THC) "cures cancers." I was skeptical of this up until I found a study on the administration of such oils.

 

Study: http://www.ncbi.nlm....les/PMC3901602/

 

Excerpt from study:

"These results cannot be explained by any other therapies, as the child was under palliative care and was solely on cannabinoid treatment when the response was documented by the SickKids Hospital. The toxicology reports ruled out chemotherapeutic agents, and only showed her to be positive for THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) when she had ‘a recent massive decrease of WBC from 350,000 to 0.3’ inducing tumor lysis syndrome, as reported by the primary hematologist/oncologist at the SickKids Hospital."

 

Leukemia: http://www.webmd.com...leukemia-basics

 

"Leukemia is an abnormal rise in the number of white blood cells."

 

The cannabinoid treatment reduced WBC very significantly. It literally reversed the main effect of Leukemia.

 

Tumor Lysis Syndrome: https://en.wikipedia..._lysis_syndrome

"Tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) is a group of metabolic abnormalities that can occur as a complication during the treatment of cancer,[1]most commonly after the treatment of lymphomas and leukemias. Inmedicine (oncology and hematology) this is potentially fatal complication, and patients at increased risk for TLS should be closely monitored before, during, and after their course of chemotherapy. Tumor lysis syndrome is characterized by high blood potassium (hyperkalemia), high blood phosphorus (hyperphosphatemia), low blood calcium (hypocalcemia), high blood uric acid (hyperuricemia), and higher than normal levels of blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and other nitrogen containing compounds. These changes in blood electrolytes and metabolites are a result of the release of cellular contents of dying cells into the blood stream from breakdown of cells after cytotoxic therapy or from cancers with high cell turnover and tumor proliferation rates. The metabolic abnormalities seen in tumor lysis syndrome can ultimately result in nausea and vomiting, but more seriously acute uric acid nephropathyacute kidney failureseizures, and cardiac arrhythmias.[2]"

 

Excerpt from study:

 

"This therapy has to be viewed as polytherapy, as many cannabinoids within the resinous extract have demonstrated targeted, antiproliferative, proapoptotic and antiangiogenic properties. This also needs to be explored further, as there is potential that cannabinoids might show selectivity when attacking cancer cells, thereby reducing the widespread cytotoxic effects of conventional chemotherapeutic agents. It must be noted that where our most advanced chemotherapeutic agents had failed to control the blast counts and had devastating side effects that ultimately resulted in the death of the patient, the cannabinoid therapy had no toxic side effects and only psychosomatic properties, with an increase in the patient's vitality."
 

   This paragraph sums up the use of cannabinoids for the treatment and prevention of cancer nicely.

 

"Despite the nonstandardization of the medicines, the dose was readily titrated according to the biological response of the patient and produced a potentially life-saving response, namely, the drop in the leukemic blast cell count."

 

  The patient died mainly due to complications from chemotherapy and the tumor lysis syndrome caused by tumor cells dying off  in response to the cannabinoid treatment. However, the results clearly point to the treatment working.

 

Conclusion:

 

Maybe I am overexcited about this study, but this is big news for anyone dealing with or wanting to prevent cancers. I drink Hemp Oil (no THC) every day for it's several benefits and after reading this study I will continue indefinitely.

Interesting that oil from different strains of cannabis variously did/did not achieve a therapeutic response. Of course you couldn't expect one particular combination of cannabinoids to be the most effective in every case, but it points out the need to try different formulas and to carefully monitor the response to such treatments.

 

Sad that the patient died. This reminds me quite a lot of that early case study of 3-bromopyruvate in a young patient, where the liver cancer was apparently totally eliminated but the damage that had been done to the liver, combined with tumor lysis syndrome, eventually killed him.

Effectiveness of some of the strains was not alluded to, but none were said to be ineffective. In light of this study is there any reason not to take hemp oil daily as a cancer preventative measure?

I should say that the second strain of hemp oil did not appear to be effective at the equivalent dose. But even after increasing the dosage it acted differently. Blast cells began to increase (which was a negative indicator) for 10 days or so before suddenly succumbing to tumor lysis syndrome. So one could speculate that different combination of active constituents was relevant to the outcome. Anyway the main point I was making is that in cancer treatment it helps tremendously to have some kind of benchmark of progress, otherwise you're flying blind.

 

As for using it as a cancer preventative, I would look into the longterm neurological/psychological effects of marijuana use before trying this experiment. I know there's been a lot of scaremongering over the years, but it does seem like there's something there. In my judgment there are a lot of easier and cheaper and safer ways to reduce your cancer risk.

For the strains that were less potent it was a matter of adjusting dosages and timings, but each strain had the same effect once potency was adjusted for. 

 

I never recommended using marijuana, but THC-free Hemp Oil that anyone can purchase legally. I bought mine from Amazon.com.

Hemp oil typically has no THC and virtually no CBD, so which brand are you buying from Amazon, and where did you discover it actually has significant CBD?

It seems I was mislead because there is no CBD in hemp oil. However, it should still contain other cannabinoids that have anti-tumor effects.

 

This study points out the anti-tumor effects of cannabinoids

Some of the preclinical studies found evidence that cannabinoids, under some circumstances, can actually stimulate cancer cell growth and possibly contribute to tumour progressionhttp://www.ncbi.nlm....pubmed/15026328 Further more it may inhibit anti-tumour immunity and lead to metastasishttp://www.ncbi.nlm....pubmed/15749859 http://www.ncbi.nlm....pubmed/10861074 Cancer cells can develop resistance to cannabinoids and start growing againhttp://www.ncbi.nlm....pubmed/21233844 Also when taken by mouth, cannabinoid entry into the body is erratic. As little as 4% of an oral dose reaches the bloodstream - too little to be reproducibly and therapeutically usefulhttp://www.ncbi.nlm....les/PMC2689518/ From this study http://www.nature.co...l/6603236a.html in humans: ''Median survival of the cohort from the beginning of cannabinoid administration was 24 weeks.''

Hemp oil is from pressing seeds, no cannabinoids there.

 

The oils used for medical purposes are not oils but hydro-alcoholic extracts from cannabis flowers which is a total different matter, they are called oil just because they are called so traditionally (don't ask me why) even if there is no resemblance with an oil whatsoever.  

 

Cheaper and easier than cannabis?

 

Like what?

The "Susan Bonita" post above may be a scam and the email a fake. See the reactions when almost the same post was made on another website. Also Susan Bonita cured herself of prostate cancer? I guess in this day and age it's possible, but it's a red flag to me.

I would watch out for those CBD oils from Amazon. From my understanding, they're from the industrial hemp plant that does not produce a good quality CBD. See, for instance, https://www.projectc...oil-vs-hemp-oil.

 

Of course, if you live in a State where cannabis is totally prohibited you don't have legal access to high quality CBD products. Amazon might be the best you can get until prohibition is ended.
