The science behind cannabinoids is clear: marijuana helps brain achieve breakthroughs in learning, consciousness and understanding

Investment Watch
(Natural News)

A great misunderstanding regarding the therapeutic value of the
cannabis plant persists, even within some reform circles. Marijuana is
often lumped into the same category as cigarettes, hard drugs, and even
alcohol, with the latest trend being to designate cannabis as “less
harmful” than these other substances. In reality, cannabis isn’t
actually harmful at all, and it can help improve the way people think,
process and understand information, and even function physically.

Study: Smoking Marijuana May Prevent Head And Neck Cancers

(CancerPreventionResearch) 

Could smoking marijuana really prevent cancer? A recent study suggests that moderate marijuana use is associated with reduced risk of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), better known as head and neck cancers. Numerous recent studies have shown that cannabinoids have anti tumor effects which most likely explains why marijuana smokers are less likely to get head and neck cancers.

Study conclusion:

Our study suggests that moderate marijuana use is associated with reduced risk of HNSCC.

We found that moderate marijuana use was significantly associated with reduced risk of HNSCC. This association was consistent across different measures of marijuana use (marijuana use status, duration, and frequency of use). Further, we observed that marijuana use modified the interaction between alcohol and cigarette smoking, resulting in a decreased HNSCC risk among moderate smokers and light drinkers, and attenuated risk among the heaviest smokers and drinkers.

34 Medical Studies Proving Cannabis Cures Cancer

Waking Times

There’s still a lot of confusion across the nation about whether or not marijuana is effective for cancer patients. Odds are you’ve heard something about it but weren’t sure whether the information was reliable or definitive. So, in order to help clear things up, here is a list of 25 studies showing that marijuana cures cancer, categorized by the type of cancers being cured in each study.

As you sort through the articles, note that the consistent theme between them is that cannabis shrinks tumors and selectively targets cancer cells. As bills and voter initiatives to legalize medical marijuana spread from state to state, remember that we’re not just talking about mitigating the side effects of chemo (though this is another viable use), we’re talking about curing the cancer itself as well as preventing its spread. I’ve taken the liberty of only including articles from credible scientific journals, removing any biased or otherwise improperly cited studies. Enjoy!
