This All-Natural Cancer Treatment Is Saving Lives

Reading time 6 min.

Say the word “cancer” and most people feel one thing: fear. That’s because, now more than ever, cancer seems to strike across such a broad range of categories — young, old, thin, overweight, athletic, stationary and everything in between. With cancer’s prevalence, so too are its “cures,” many of which are wishy-washy in the name of science. But there’s one all-natural remedy for cancer that’s surprising scientists and patients alike: cannabis.

How cannabis oil kills cancer cells

It’s well known that cannabis can help to alleviate pain and nausea associated with chemotherapy, but can cannabis oil actually kill cancer cells? A number of studies point in that direction, and the anecdotal evidence is stacking up as well.

Here’s how it works: There are at least 60 known cannabinoids in marijuana, which activate the cannabinoid receptors that naturally exist in the body. One of the most well-known compounds, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), produces the “high” that is associated with cannabis inhalation or consumption. But there are other compounds too, and they produce beneficial effects to the central nervous system and immune system, according to

To date, several studies on humans and animals have solidified the link between cannabis compounds and cancer cell death. Essentially, when cannabinoids enter the body, they target cancer cells and force them to “commit suicide” — all while having no negative effect on healthy cells, according to molecular biologist Dr. Christina Sanchez from the University of Madrid.

Scientific findings on cannabis and cancer cells

Does that sound a little too good to be true? Perhaps you need to see the hard data. If that’s the case, here are some notable scientific findings about cannabis and cancer cells:

  • A 2015 in-vitro study in Oncology Reports found that stimulation of the cannabinoid receptors led to programmed cell death (apoptosis) in prostate cancer cells.
  • A 2013 study published in Plus One showed that cannabidiol (non-psychoactive CBD) may induce cancer cell death and decrease the expression of proteins involved in the spread of brain cancer cells.
  • A 2007 Harvard study published in the American Association of Cancer Research found that THC cuts tumor growth in half and reduces the spread of lung cancer.
  • A 2007 study published in Molecular Cancer Therapeutics found that cannabidiol (CBD) inhibited the growth of breast cancer cells in mice.
  • A 2003 study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation found that activation of the cannabinoid receptors slowed skin tumor growth.

Rick Simpson Oil Protocol

Back in 2003, Rick Simpson was diagnosed with skin cancer. When surgery proved to be unsuccessful, he decided to try something a little different. He extracted oil from cannabis and applied it directly to his skin, which cured the cancer in a matter of days. Since then, he’s been a medical marijuana activist and helped more than 5,000 patients cure their own ailments — for free.

When cancer patients use cannabis oil to inhibit the growth of cancer cells, they often use the Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) Protocol. The method involves consuming 60 grams of cannabis oil over the course of 90 days. Find out more about this method and how to extract your own oil here.

Cancer survivors speak out

The research is sound by itself, but the anecdotal evidence is remarkable as well. A quick Youtube search for “cancer survivors and cannabis” yields dozens upon dozens of amazing stories. Here are some of the cancer survivors who have come forward about their controversial and lifesaving cannabis treatment.

Stephanie Larue

After being diagnosed with stage-4 breast cancer at age 30, Larue left her high-stress work environment, changed her diet, used supplements, tried acupuncture and worked on personal fitness, along with six rounds of chemotherapy. When the cancer came back, Larue declined further chemo. Instead, she followed the Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) Protocol using cannabis oil until she was cancer-free.

Brave Mykayla

When young Mykayla was diagnosed with childhood leukemia, her parents were determined to create a balance between conventional and natural medicine to give her the best chance. They fed her a vegetarian diet, free from processed foods and refined sugar. They also gave her supplements including vitamin C, green tea extract, milk thistle, coconut oil, vitamin D and more. In addition, they gave her cannabis juice, edibles and cannabis oil. She’s now in remission.

Andy Ashcraft

At age 64, Ashcraft was diagnosed with stage-4 mesothelioma from working with products containing asbestos. Thinking he only had one year to live, he took part in a clinical trial of monoclonal antibody amatuximab (MORAb 009). After three years of treatment, his health took a turn for the worse. That’s when he added cannabis oil to his regimen and eventually stopped chemotherapy. Now cancer-free, Ashcraft continues to use cannabis oil for health.

Sharon Kelly

At age 54, Kelly was given nine months to live due to stage-4 lung cancer. After months of chemotherapy and the chemo tablet Tarceva, doctors told her that the cancer might slow down temporarily, but it would likely return — and more severely the next time. Without help or hope from the medical community, Kelly turned to cannabis oil and cannabis suppositories. After just seven months of treatment, she was declared cancer-free.

Some experts caution against false hope

There’s no doubt that the research and stories are compelling. And should you add cannabis or cannabis oil to your treatment plan? Probably. But rely on it completely to cure cancer? Experts say this isn’t a good idea — yet.

Dr. Lester Grinspoon, Associate Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and author of several groundbreaking books on marijuana research, told Huffington Post, “I think the day will come when it or some cannabinoid derivatives will be demonstrated to have cancer curative powers. But in the meantime, we must be very cautious about what we promise these patients.”

If you can’t get cannabis, there are other natural options

Perhaps it’s time to finally put the war on weed behind us. The mounting scientific evidence of marijuana’s benefits is indisputable for a range of conditions, from kicking opioid addiction to managing epilepsy. But if you live in a state where weed isn’t legal yet, you need to know about your other options. Along with cannabis oil, there are a handful of cancer treatments that have risen to prominence in recent years.

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, it’s imperative that you work with your primary care physician to determine the best course of action for you. Make sure to ask your doctor about these all-natural treatments that have garnered public support:

  • Gerson Therapy: This includes a plant-based diet, raw juicing, natural supplements and coffee enemas to help the body detox.
  • Budwig Diet: Invented by Dr. Johanna Budwig in the early 1900s, this diet includes organic flaxseed oil and cottage cheese to starve cancer cells.
  • Raw juicing : Part of the Cellect-Budwig Protocol and Gerson Therapy, this method floods healthy cells with the nutrients they need to overpower cancer cells.
  • Essential oil therapy : Thyme, rosemary, oregano, chamomile and frankincense have been proven to calm the body, soothe the mind and kill cancer cells.
  • Angiogenesis foods: This diet focuses on foods that promote the formation of new blood vessels. These include fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, spices, herbs, seeds and mushrooms.

As is so often the case, perhaps the cure lies in nature. A growing community of scientists around the world certainly seem to think so. For the future of humanity’s sake, let’s hope that turns out to be the case.
