Cannabis may help combat cancer
Scientists have finnally agreed that cancer suffers would benfit from the use of cannabis as a painkiller and also as a actual drug to fight the
spread of the disease. Through extreme testing and many hours of pondering results the scientists in charge have discovered that an active ingredient
, can block the spread of the herpes virus.
Scientists have discovered the active ingredient, delta-9-tetrahydrocannibol can block the spread of gamma herpes viruses.
The viruses are linked to an increased risk of the cancers Kaposis sarcoma, Burkitts lymphoma and Hodgkins disease.
Gamma herpes viruses are different from the herpes simplex viruses responsible for cold sores and genital herpes.
Well so they finnally decided to agree that cannabis is a cure huh!
I know there has been a lot of controvesy because of the drug and yes i know it is illegal, but due to the fact that it has been used through the ages
as a medicine and painrelief, why dont we take the step back and begin to do it again?
I know many people would abuse it if they had the chance, but how would u enjoy feeling severe muscular and skeletal pain due to cancer and no
painkillers worked...then u have a joint and the pain eases?
Just my opinion though.
