HEMP OIL ~ A CANCER CURE?

Published March 26, 2008

Many have known for years, despite widespread propaganda to the contrary, that marijuana has multiple medical benefits. Besides allowing college kids and old hippies a safer (more mellow) buzz than alcohol, the active chemical, THC, offers genuine relief from pain, nausea, sleeplessness, inflammation, anxiety, depression, tense muscles, nervousness. Medical marijuana is starting to be prescribed for a widening list of symptoms, not just cancer and glaucoma, as a pain management alternative to harder, more addictive narcotics. This is a good thing.

Even though strides have been taken in the direction of legalization, or at the very least decriminalization, I’m sure the pharmaceutical companies do not want this plant validated as an acceptable remedy for ANY ailments. Why? Because they would stand to lose an ungodly fortune if people could grow a multi-symptom medicine in their own backyard. Especially since …

This is a world that hates to feel. Our staggering pharmaceutical stock figures testify to that. We’ve been Prozac’d, Xanax’d, and Valium’d into oblivion. But smoke a little cannabis — a plant that grows naturally out of God’s green earth — and you’re a criminal. Give me a break.

Political hypocrisy outlaws marijuana, while enabling alcohol to be not only legal but glamorized in TV, magazines, and billboards. Ironic since pot kills aggression, while alcohol (for many) fires up their aggression. Ever seen somebody get violent at a party or a ball game? Are they drunk or stoned? They are DRUNK.

Pharmaceutical companies make trillions of dollars pumping people full of psychotropic drugs for anxiety and depression when there is a far more natural, and less dangerous remedy. American doctors have recently studied the alternative benefits of THC in comparison to Ritalin in calming hyper-active children. I am so not suggesting we get all our ADD children stoned, but anything is better than pumping them full of speed!

Much of the misinformation in America about this plant, stemmed from southern states in the early 20th century, when poor Mexican immigrant workers would use it to relax after a hard day in the fields. The outlawing of this plant was due greatly to racial intolerance, and a way to keep Mexicans under The Man’s thumb. Religious demonizing, pharmaceutical condemnation, and governmental laws soon followed, which made alcohol legal, and marijuana illegal.

Cannabis buds: no good. However … THIS BUD’S FOR YOU!
Because as we all know, what separates safe drugs from unsafe drugs, is a government tax.

Federal, State, and County laws are starting to differ in their penalties — including Alaska, California, and Colorado, where having less than an ounce for home consumption is either legal or only a misdemeanor … finally.

So, I said all that to say this:

The seven-part video posted below is called Run From The Cure – The Rick Simpson Story. It is a Canadian-produced documentary which offers some astounding claims in regards to hemp oil (made from the THC-packed little white hairs on marijuana buds). Namely that it is an effective cure for cancer. I was pretty skeptical when I watched this program, but … I’m convinced enough now that, come the day I’m ever diagnosed with The Big C (God forbid), the first thing I would ask for is hemp oil.

Watch it and let me know what you think.
