Cannabis hoax or cure ?

Michael Taillard, Guest

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 34 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!

Whilst it is very important for everyone to be entitled to an opinion and for everyone to be as informed as possible it is equally as important to discuss any alternative or complementary approaches with your clinician / s (hepatologist, oncologist, nurse, whoever)


Thank you for allowing the debate to be opened , let put it on the table and find out what the fuss is all about , live or die ,hoax or cure , let the games begin , and let the truth come to light , nothing to hid an honest look at what is happing , this our lives and I do not wish to break the law in the uk , and do not want to leave the uk to live in a country that does not arrest it citizens for what is no more than using a common plant that grows every where , in the uk at this moment in time I can live , die or break the law , hmmm , if you was in my shoes what would you do ? What would the queen do ,Queen Victoria used it , fact , x


It worries me that you're presenting this research as evidence of a cure for cancer: Going through your links, some don't show a clear effect, some are early studies on rats or mice, some are studies on neurology (not cancer), some are petridish studies, some are pre-clinical studies, and so on.

Most worryingly, presenting cancer as a single disease is misleading: it's hundreds of different diseases potentially requiring different treatment.

And even if cancer can be shown to have some positive effect against cancer, it doesn't say whether it is more or less effective than other treatments.

I'm not a doctor - and certainly not a cancer expert, but I would really be leaving assessment of treatment to an experienced professional.
