The list of benefits from inflammation to cancer seems almost too good to be true. One of the most common uses of CBD is for anxiety and insomnia. Has it been studied to actually make a difference for that?
How does it work? How is CBD actually interacting with the brain and body? Are we totally sure that it's safe to consume? How can someone tell if they have high-quality CBD? Is there a particular dosage or amount of active compounds to look for? What effects can a person expect upon immediately taking CBD? What effects could they expect after a week, a month, or a year? If someone has a bad reaction to marijuana, would you recommend they stay away from CBD?
Can CBD be addictive? If someone takes it daily, will they build up tolerance? Will they have any negative reactions when they stop? Is it possible to overdose on CBD? If so, what happens? They have a target drug candidate, KLS https: Comparing cannabis with plutonium for any reason is more of a political stunt than a scientific analogy. What a terrible, lazy, misguided, arrogant, stupid article.
The author shows how very, very little he knows about this critical subject. The fact he says that cannabis has no efficacy for epilepsy shows his ignorance right there. As for cancer, cannabinoids in most cancer-related studies are shown to only kill cancer cells while sparing healthy ones.
The science goes so much deeper than cannabis simply killing cancer cells. They do so through similar mechanisms as our own self-made endocannabinoids, and numerous studies with humans have shown these anti-cancer effects translate to us. He also completely diminishes the overwhelming anecdotal evidence and the immense detail of it. You can read a summary of this evidence at http: That said, it is true that cannabis is not a cure-all and not everyone responds, whether it be cancer, epilepsy, or a number of other diseases.
The antitumour effects are modest at best and some of the preclinical studies found evidence that cannabinoids, under some circumstances, can actually stimulate cancer cell growth and contribute to tumour progression PMID: Furthermore, cancer cells can develop resistance PMID: The only human study that has been published to date was back in It was a cohort of nine patients all with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme PMID: All had their tumours resected and a catheter was placed in the cavity after surgery.
Then every day doctors would directly infuse a very pure THC solution at a high concentration directly into the cavity where the tumour had been, in the hope of killing off any remaining cancer cells. As for the two patients who survived the longest yet still died , the effects could be attributable to spontaneous but temporary regression of the disease PMID: You just commented on my post on another thread as well… do you purposely follow me around to counter what I say at every turn?
I do appreciate skepticism though, it is critical and none of these grandiose claims should be taken without serious inquiry. The bottom line is this is working though. There are thousands of patients who have reported anticancer effects with cannabis, and I personally have watched three close family friends start-to-finish beat their cancers with cannabis oil.
To say it is not working at this point is extremely dangerous because it takes away a real source of hope. And this at a remarkably low dose, FAR lower than what people are using to achieve remission.
So we have massive scientific, anecdotal, and now clinical evidence this works. The time for skepticism is over, we need to start saving patients. Read my book if you want to see how deep this goes on the human side. A 21 patient trial I am assuming you mean the GW Pharma one , has very low statistical value. It is a good sign, but it could just as easily be a statistical error. The problem with this line of thinking is that people are dying of cancer every few seconds.
They need treatments NOW, and waiting for years because people refuse to connect the dots results in millions of deaths. This trial is in the context of thousands of anecdotal cases of cannabis killing cancer. There is also other scientific evidence showing preclinical effects have translated to humans, such as the decrease of MMP-2 and VEGF shown in cells, animals, and humans.
Furthermore, other radical preclinical evidence, such as CBD for epilepsy, has translated to humans better than the preclinical evidence would suggest, since those studies use simple chemical-induced seizures vs.
THC kills cancer cells by activating CB1 receptors. Anandamide kills cancer cells by activating CB1 receptors. The evidence is absolutely enormous and this medicine must be made available now. I absolutely hate how people have no sense of urgency about this and refuse to think more deeply. People should not forego conventional therapy and we still have a lot to learn.
But there is absolutely no doubt cannabis has an anticancer effect in humans and it is time to take action on that knowledge. If you think every single case in http: However I absolutely claim that in many cases cannabis extracts can directly treat cancer and can put cancers, even those terminally diagnosed, into remission, both alone and in conjunction with conventional treatment. Most people with cancer who use a significant dose of THC and CBD, at least mg total, see some kind of anticancer effect, even if it is simply slowing the rate of growth.
However some patients do not respond at all, even at exceptionally high doses reaching mg, which is why conventional therapy should never be foregone. The reason phytocannabinoids seem so effective against a wide range of cancers, despite the hundred of potential factors which can drive them, is because our endocannabinoid systems appear to have a role in preventing cancer cell proliferation. Ultimately, cancer is abnormal cells rapidly dividing, and there are some common mechanisms that drive these which cannabinoids can halt.
And for certain cancers with unique mechanisms of growth, cannabinoids often are effective against those.
CBD has been shown to promote the differentiation of those cells which makes them more responsive to conventional treatment. This goes far deeper than a cannabinoid killing cancer in the same way bleach would. Again, I urge you to look at the cases in my book. If you think every single one is a lie or a gross misinterpretation of the facts, all I can say is I disagree.
Those cases are also a mere fraction of the reported anticancer successes, and they come from doctors, dispensaries, corporations, caregivers, from all over the world across a significant period of time. To think this is all coincidence and nothing is going on here, especially in the face of a placebo-controlled trial published three months ago and more emerging case reports in the literature, is absurd.
The trial was sponsored by GW Pharma who used their drug sativex a standardized whole plant oral mucosal spray. All this randomized study confirms is the treatment is generally well tolerated and the feasibility of individualized dosing when used as an adjunct to dose-intense temozolomide. What GW should be doing is conducting a much larger Phase IIb trial using biomarkers to predict which patients will likely respond to the treatment and then going from there. The bottom line is this trial strongly confirms what is being seen in the real world.
Six months life extension is a big deal. While the trial was small, the chances their significantly extended survival was due to pure chance is absurd in the face of the massive scientific, anecdotal, and logical evidence. You know, the chemical that when isolated and given to epileptic children, they stop having seizures that they would have previously had hundreds of times per week?
THC is one of just many cannabinoids, terpenes, and other molecules, which work together to provide different medical effects. Research on cannabis has a LONG way to go before you can make the broad, sweeping claims you do here. Their main criticism was the lack of control groups and placebos, even though many of the studies they cite show incredible results, for example Tzadok et al. However, if you compare marijuana to the drugs that are commonly used to treat these conditions, the difference is staggering.
The Epidiolex clinicals are quite interesting. They did show a clinically-significant improvement when compared to placebo, but they also showed a significant number of treatment-related serious adverse events.
These serious adverse events increased with the concentration of CBD in the drug. While side-effects are to be expected with any drug, particularly one intended to treat a serious debilitating disease, these results do pour a bucket of cold water on the claims that CBD drugs have no harmful side-effects another myth promoted by the cannabis cult.
Why present the argument at all. The powers that be want pot in mass use, and, the marijuana growers have a lot of backing. Personally I have used marijuana with success to decrease the amount of grand mal epileptic seizures happening to me. I did that about one year before I started on pharmaceuticals.
I had no seizures after I started to smoke marijuana, though i was smoking hashish before that without the seizures going away. Marijuana does also help me with my anxiety, depression and sleep disorder. It seems like not every strain helps equally much, hashish does work in some degree, but I wish I still had access to fine and cheap marijuana. Another thing that happened after I started smoking cannabis was strangely enough that I got cured from my asthma.
A couple of weeks after I as a youth started to use cannabis in the weekends, my lung capacity drastically improved, and I no longer needed to use an inhalator. My chronic broncitus, which I got diagnosed with as a child, did not improve, however, I do not believe it got any worse either. Also, I have supplied a senior citizen, a female, with marijuana because she had heard it could relieve her Chroms disease. And that it did. She actually managed to get outside for the first time in years because she could stop using several of the pharmaceuticals she had been taking.
I also gave marijuana to a cancer pation, and he finally got to eat and live without feeling nauseous all the time.
I also gave cannabis to my alcoholic father with great success. Cannabis did not cure any of these diseases, but it helped relieve them and made our lives better. Try the Mammoth strain. We are in this together. Speaking of pharmacy drugs.
I stopped taking them 4 years ago because they did absolutely nothing to stop my Grand Mals. In fact, they led to me having more seizures. I had 2 Grand Mals back to back and it royally fucked me up for about 6 months. Memory loss and speech loss for about the same amount of time. People suffering from a variety of conditions report that cannabis provides them with relief that no other drug provides.
As for recreational, what business is of yours what other adults choose to use? If so watch were you shove it or it might get cut off. Dr Grimes, if this really is your conclusion then you should be struck off for professional incompetence. Your assertions are absurd and fly in the face of the massive amount of high quality evidence which you seem determined to ignore.
Some reading for you. Being an idiot is hurting your life — try to adjust. You really do believe deep down that you have a panacea here for everything… which is what you would expect of a drug of this nature when it enmeshes with the human mind. The second link is a review of over 22, published and peer-reviewed studies by an internationally renowned neurologist. Nice Peter Reynolds with the save!!
Thank you for your work. The cat is out of the bag and there is no putting him back in. Try telling this to the thousands of people who have now been helped by cannabis. Listen to what this retired judge, who has put hundreds away for marijuana has to say now that he has found the help of cannabis in reversing his COPD. It seems that when writing on the subject of medicine he should have made this clear. Instead he sought to endow his opinions with fake expertise.
It is true that there are many ridiculous snake oil claims made about cannabis curing cancer, although it would be foolish to write off all the anecdotal reports. They demonstrate an urgent need to advance research into the proven pre-clinical anti-cancer properties of cannabinoids. Most of these claims are made by people who are very sick, desperate or are relatives of people suffering from cancer. Furthermore, the evidence is conclusive that cannabis offers great benefits as a palliative medicine for cancer and many other conditions.
This is a summary of the evidence on cannabis and cancer which is balanced and warns of the snake oil claims but substantiates the proven benefits:. Your link is to a rather biased site. Want to appear credible, cite something impartial and with facts. First your earlier attack on me after I calmly laid out my own case of being cured of cancer by using cannabis and now this rather weak-kneed attack on another intelligent commenter for his reasoned rebuttal to Dr.
My advice to you? Get back to the adults in the room when you have something constructive to add to the conversation. Ah and now your defending the racist homophobe because he shares your deluded views. Now your just looking like a stalker.
Well, apply your stalking skills to googling Peter Reynolds and check out his various court cases. Obviously other sciences have a part to play in all sorts of medical research but Dr Grimes clearly knew that his title of doctor would endow his opinions with purported medical expertise. This is unethical and he should have made his qualifications clear and not allow readers to be misled.
Any doctor or scientist know that cancer is not one disease but has a myriad of different manifestations, and any one treatment that is claimed to be a cure all has to be suspicious. Also it takes years of in depth study to gain a PhD. Equally the author is simply stating that the evidence around cannabis curing cancer, as far as the evidence hierarchy goes, is not at the very top and that further research is needed before the gushing claims.
Furthermore, what exactly is unethical about the title Dr when used for a Dr of physics? You and Dr Grimes need to educate yourselves about the endocannabinoid system before you wade in clumsily demonstrating your ignorance. How we work out the difference between reproducible results of trials and those that may show promise and need further trials before they can have a place in medicine? Anecdotal evidence very low in the evidence hierarchy I agree , two words: Just to help you review your evidence: Oh and maybe educate yourself on this: Thus the MD was born.
Many PhDs are working extremely to hard to cure disease. Which has what relevance to the fact that in describing himself as a doctor and writing about medicine it is inevitable that readers will infer he is a medical doctor? Oh and Peter, any chance you could present a coherent rebuttal and classify your evidence according to the evidence hierarchy rather than your childish ad hominem attacks.
Not like you to be nasty and mean is it, or to rampant sexism or stoop to homophobic and other attacks is it? Oh hang on, look what I found: I think any observer has only to look back at your comments to see very clearly who is behaving in childish fashion. A way to blame others for your own negative thoughts by repressing them and then attributing them to someone else. Due to the sorrowful nature of delusion and denial it is very difficult for the target to be able to clarify the reality of the situation.
Jeanette, one of the most delightful if not THE most delightful aspects of this whole page has been listening to the sound of you intellectually and vigorously wiping the floor with dear old addicted Peter. Bravo, and thank you. There are a lot of scientific studies for the medical benefits of cannabis, including for treating cancer and psychosis.
The article does not mention cannabis scientific studies at all and simply dismisses everything with facile generalisations. I think you are taking the article too personally for there surely is a cult of people saying that cannabis is a panacea for all ills. Au revoir and good evening.
Yes, I say again, I understand the hierarchy of evidence. Oh and a good article from the BMJ: Oh dear, you have a serious problem with an uncontrolled patronising attitude. Maybe try reining that in a bit? It might enhance your ability to communicate. Yes, I fully understand each of your five issues but what is your point? Bob Marley was murdered. I have to suspect your motivations. Because anecdotal evidence can be biased. Also if I wanted life saving treatment I would opt for tried and tested treatment.
Do you know what they call alternative medicine that works? He IS a doctor, nobody gives a crap about your ethical point of view. Get a job, sort out some proper medication, and start things moving again. You might even become mildly interesting, given enough time. I would like to try mmj for the chronic pain I suffer from. The problem is with the state I reside in.
It has taken it almost four 4 years to get its program up and running. So I still must use the effective, yet very addictive, opioids. America, once again, has elected the worst candidate for cannabis. Reagan was Nixon on steroids. Now we get get President Forty-five. This Doctor of physics is also crap at his own sphere of so called expertise. Plutonium is not a naturally occurring substance.
Cyanide is found in most fruits some nuts like Almonds, but nowhere in nature does it occurs in sufficient quantities to be toxic! Not strictly the point he was making, which was that natural does not mean benign. But, there have been cases of cider drinking alcoholics who have suffered from cyanide toxicity from apple pips. Admittedly very very rare, but not totally impossible. TBH, the volumes they were drinking meant that the cyanide was probably the last of their worries….
Please show where plutonium is naturally occurring with a half life long enough to be consumed. Uranium is natural but is enriched to make plutonium. And abuse shows your ignorance! You might want to check the periodic table.
Trace amounts of plutonium occur naturally in uranium. This article spouts a lot of nonsense. It is obvious to anyone who has met a person, child or adult, who successfully utilizes marijuana medically that the drug has medicinal value, if only as a painkiller. Meanwhile, we prescribe much more toxic and dangerous substances every day. Stop with the scaremongering and let people use medicine that is clearly working for them. Legalization and regulation can only make things better by ensuring people can find out the right strains of marijuana for them and have consistent access to them.
I did, hence the comment. Cannabis is proven to be medically effective in some circumstances. The author uses THC, which is one of many compounds within cannabis. Without legalization, those who believe cannabis to be the best remedy for their conditions are forced into an illegal black market where quality is unknown.
Legalization and regulation allows for patients to find marijuana that created for their specific problems. Here is the original book this article claims to be citing. I stopped reading when he claimed it has no benefits for Eipelpsy i couldnt take it seriously after that. I agree with the author. Its scheduled and very little research is done. Placebo is a very powerful thing. Not saying that to be cliche.
What we need, is for controlled groups and test that showed yes there was a decrease in inflammation markers. Anxiety has been proven to be reduced from users thinking they are getting a anxiety med but was just a sugar pill. Although, you basically denied any type of evidence that it has happened. Speaking from personal experience I could not see how that could be the case considering epilepsy is not something your brain function has any control over as it is a misfire of the electrical currents that basically make the brain work.
Personally I have found cannabis to be very beneficial in the treatment of my epilepsy where no other medication had previously worked. Everybody is different but from my experience as somebody who had very poorly controlled epilepsy it worked for me. Cannabis uses cannabinoids to help protect against the sun..
I doubt very much if Dr David Grimes has inquired into the history of why Marijuana is illegal. Like most people he simply believes that it is a dangerous drug and that has always been the case. His motivation was, quite simply, racism. The corruption of wholesome American youth and all that. He and his cohorts cooked up the idea that it would be named a dangerous drug and be made illegal. It was entirely a fiction but with all the resources of the FBI at his disposal he managed to pull it off and, as a result absurdly, Marijuana was put in the same category as Heroin and other really lethal drugs.
People can watch the movie on You Tube, if they wish. It becomes obvious within 5 minutes that it is an absurd parody of reality to the point that it is laughable to any rational person.
It is against this background, the deliberate lie taken as fact, that all anti-marijuana propaganda should be seen. If you take nonsense as fact as an initial premise then it is going to color all that you do. In the meantime I concur with all those who have already written that the use of Marijuana has all sorts of health benefits but, since I would be simply repeating what others have already said on here I will forgo that.
Get your facts straight. If you read the history you will find that the USA at his behest started pressuring foreign governments to make it illegal under threat of sanctions as soon as the USA made it illegal. The US used threats of sanctions etc against other countries if they did not comply.
