It’s quite remarkable how many success stories are out there when it comes to using cannabis for medical purposes. If we consider cancer, for example, many people have used or incorporated medical marijuana into their healing routine. One great example is Mykala Comstock. Mykala had T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a very rare in aggressive form of childhood leukemia.
In July 2012, doctors discovered a basketball sized mass of lymphoblasts in her chest. Her mass was so large that she was not able to be sedated for risk of death from the pressure on her esophagus and heart.
Chemotherapy wasn’t working, so it got to the point were doctors strongly recommended a bone marrow transplant along with full body radiation. Her parents said no, and started using a strict cannabis routine from that point on. Ever since she started, the cancer went into remission. It’s now four years later and Mykala is still completely cancer free. This is just one of many examples.
When it comes to cannabis and science, it’s firmly established in scientific literature that this plant has a wide range of health benefits, and many people are choosing to opt out of traditional treatment, which doesn’t always work, to try cannabis. However, it’s not just THC that destroys cancer cells, is also other ingredients found within the plant. Medical studies have provided that cannabis shows very strong potential for cancer treatment. These types of discoveries are important, especially given the fact that prescription medications have raised a lot of controversy. Fraudulent science kills more than 100,000 people a year in the US alone.
Below is another remarkable story of a young woman who was bedridden for years, with multiple ailments, as explained in the video. She was on a variety of prescription medications, and doctors were not sure if she would even make it to see the age of 30. She decided to consult a doctor about his experience with patients and how they use cannabis. She went on a cannabis juicing treatment and the results were so significant that it changed her life.
It’s ridiculous how many people still believe that cannabis is not medicine. This is a gift from nature, and the science is quite clear. That being said, there are still many unknowns. For example, cannabis used for medical purposes on a young developing brain could have some negative consequences, but there is still a lot of research to do.
It’s sad to see that no clinical trials have been set up given how much promise this plant has shown. On the contrary, the instant a pharmaceutical grade drug shows some promise, it’s made available for clinical trials right away. There is something not quite right about that.
