This is very interesting, and something that should be followed closely, way to go Brazil, lets see the result being positive.

SOURCE


In a stunning medical breakthrough for humanity, a hemp cannabidiol (CBD) product from Medical Marijuana, Inc. has been approved by the government of Brazil as a treatment for cancer. The product, called Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO), is also approved by Brazil as a prescription medication for epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and chronic pain.

Ehhhh. I don't really care what Brazil does. Brazil is a mess. I thank it for BJJ, and hot nakedness, but that's about it. Annnnnnnd it's Natural News. That site should be blacklisted here.

I'm an ignorant sheeple, I see natural news and I'm done. I'm not fact checking those links, it's natural news. I will be surprised if this article is actually legit after someone more patient than me vets it.

I'm not a partaker, but I live in WA (I tried again and still hate it) and am fine with legalization and more research being done. I don't discount all the stories about CBD helping people, and it doesn't give people any sort of high. I just really hate natural news. Terrible people.

More and more my own country ('Merika) seems so backwards. Why can't we get with the program on innovation like we used to???

Oh yeah. Corporate (thus government) stranglehold on our lives. I forgot, my bad.

Anyway... GO BRAZIL!!!

I'm not a fan of Natural news either, the thing seems real though.

Well they're using the wrong compound if they hope to treat cancer. It's THC that destroys cancer cells. Both CBD and THC is the way to go.
The Brazilians have also had success in treating addictions with psychedelics.

From the studies I've seen it's just CBD. THC and CBD oppose each other when growing ie. The more THC a plant has, the less CBD it will contain and vice-versa. Also, they are using hemp (the male plants) which does not produce THC, but it does produce CBD. I think thats why they got the ball rolling, it's not illegal.

Have u ever smoked or consumed other ways male marijuana plant buds? They are weaker than female plants buds but they do get u "high" and different plants buds can be as powerful than female versions, its not all set in stone like that.
I must say that i dont know if male plant develops THC but if not then CBD alone can be as potential to get u high as THC.

I dont know exactly how powerful the ganja oil is to cure/kill cancer cells but i have heard few ppls success stories and also read some scientific proves, that it indeed can do it but also it works as pain killer, tress killer and importantly it is purely natural herb, so this should be like numero uno meds to study and use already all over the world.

Big problem is that it is indeed this simple plant, weed, in theory anyone could grow it, indoors, outdoors, its a weed it will grow and quite fast too. I think these areas lobbyist got such big money to make to block ganja to become world wide healer, legally that is.

So you didn't watch watch the video or have poor comprehension skills. She shows that THC causes cancer cells to self terminate as many other studies have also shown.Numerous people have cured their cancer with THC. Time to start paying attention.

With selective breeding they are able to grow plants with whatever THC/CBD ratio they like.

I was going to say, you can get cbd oil on Amazon in the uk, but it contains no thc which would make it illegal cbd can be good for epilepsy, but it contains no thc which is the cancer fighting part of the plant

This is really great news. Really really great news!

Given the many studies which show the effectiveness of cannabis against cancer in vitro (in "glass", as in petri dishes and test tubes and such), I suspect that as we continue to treat patients with cannabis, that our knowledge of its healing powers will grow exponentially. As will medicial studies in vivo (in the "living"), both confirming and growing our knowledge and understanding. This is such a blessing for humanity... just as criminalizing a healing plant of nature is a crime against humanity. Way to go Brazil!!!

Regarding the CBDs vs THC argument: As I understand it, BOTH are effective against cancer, as well as CBGs (the precursor for both CBD and THC). Both are able to kill/retard cancer cells on their own in vitro. CBGs and CBDs activate the CB2 receptors in our immune system, stimulating production of monocytes and macrophages. THC stimulates the CB1 receptors throughout our body. For too many decades, virtually all independent cannabis research has been illegal -- hence our lack of studies and knowledge. So we're playing catchup in many ways. But it's happening. Finally!!!

Perhaps rather than simply blowing off anything and everything from Natural News, which virtually always sources all of their articles, you should start wondering why mainstream media refuses to do their job and actually report the news... Maybe this has something to do with it:

I hate to rain on anybodies parade but Brazil are using it for pain management, to treat the pain of people in other cancer therapies. They're not using it to treat the cancer itself directly.
