It’s still illegal in most areas of the world, but the cannabis plant boasts some incredible benefits – not just as a healing medicinal, but as an eco-friendly source for clothing, energy, and even food.
But the legalization of the plant is still a highly debated topic – despite the many case studies that support its use in treating cancers, including Leukemia. Social stigma is now the predominant factor inhibiting its use and legalization, but that perception is being changed by the many pro-cannabis supporters speaking out from various fields.
Insight into how THC (the main psychoactive component of the cannabis plant) cures Cancer is explained by molecular biologist, Dr. Christina Sanchez, in the video above. A scientist at the Compultense University in Madrid, Spain, she relayed her long-time studies and enlightening findings with Cannabis Planet TV.
Cannabinoids refer to any group of related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. The compounds activate cannabinoid receptors in the body, and in effect the body itself produces compounds called endocannabinoids. These play a major role in many processes within the body that help create a healthy environment.
But one does not have to go out of their comfort zone to experience the effects – as cannabis has been shown to treat cancer without any psychoactive effects.
In many situations, cannabinoids have been proven to reduce Cancer cells as they have a great impact on the rebuilding of the immune system. While the rate of success still varies (depending on the strain of the plant used), many patients are experiencing a profound reduction of cancer in a short period of time.
A lot of debate surrounding the medicinal use of the plant is based on the perception that cannabis must be smoked for it to be beneficial; this is actually false, and could be a relief to some. Contrary to popular notion, smoking the weed does not assist a great deal in treating disease within the body, as therapeutic levels cannot be reached through such method. Instead, using the oil from the plant or eating it is the best way to go about obtaining the necessary ingredients from the cannabinoids.
The Earth offers many remedies to assist the human body in re-gaining balance. As mankind has evolved and implemented modern ways of survival, a disconnect with natural living was created, and in effect, many issues have rapidly manifested in the last few hundred years. But deriving plant-based medicines and treating food, as well as lifestyle habits, as preventable medicine will ensure that body balance is regained.
Social acceptance of the use of the cannabis plant is growing, although it is still held in different regard than chemotherapy. But as its medicinal properties are more deeply explored and shared, the world can continue to re-shape its opinion and allowance of its use.
