Cannabis For Leukemia

Time Magazine published and article on marijuana ans cancer. Study: Marijuana Compounds Can Kill Some Cancer Cells. It opens with:
Compounds derived from marijuana can kill cancerous cells in patients with leukemia, according to a recent study.

The study, published in the Anticancer Research journal, was partially funded by GW Pharmaceuticals. which already produces a cannabis-derived drug to help people with multiple sclerosis. Dr. Wai Liu studied six different non-psychoactive cannabinoids (compounds derived from marijuana that don’t get the user high like its THC component does). He found that certain non-psychoactive cannabinoids “resulted in dramatic reductions in cell viability” and “caused a simultaneous arrest at all phases of the cell cycle,” according to the study summary posted online.

And then there is this report which although strictly anecdotal is very interesting.

We actually have some details of her cannabis use.
The girl, who calls herself "Brave Mykayla," takes a gram of cannabis oil daily to combat side effects of her chemotherapy, such as nausea, restlessness and loss of appetite, but she says that the pills make her feel "funny."

Mykayla's mother, Erin Purchase, credits cannabis with her daughter's remission, but Jesse Comstock, the girl's father, who is divorced from Purchase, is concerned that the use of medical marijuana will impair his daughter's mental development.
He is concerned about her mental development? How well do dead children develop mentally?

What we haven't seen so far is an assay of any of the oils used in treatment. I would think that such assays would be extremely helpful.

Here is another anecdote: Elias Cooper Story: Treating Leukemia With Cannabis Oil

By January 2013 Elias's condition had advanced so far that chemo was the option Elias's doctor left him with. Since Elias was opposed to chemo his wife, Debra Cooper, went online and started to look for alternative treatments for her husbands condition. Thank God for that decision because it is what has saved his life.

Debras research guided her to "Brave" Mykayla, the 8 year old who is using cannabis oil to treat her leukemia. Mykayla is one of the youngest medical marijuana patients in the US and has had great results using cannabis oil to treat her leukemia. Mykayla and her family have been on many TV news segments and shows sharing her story. Elias and Debra were very impressed at the results shown by Mykayla. They were so impressed that they decided to get Elias his medical marijuana card so he to could try cannabis oil.

When Elias finally had his medical marijuana card his wife again turned to the internet to find how to make cannabis oil. Her search for directions to make cannabis oil landed her here,, on the make the oil page. They followed the instructions here on the site to make Elias's oil and got him started on it right away. He took his first dose of cannabis oil on February 3rd 2013. Elias ingested the oil ever day for about 3 weeks before he went back to the doctor for a checkup. That checkup showed his white blood cell count was down 40,000.

  1. My son have been suffering from leukemia and i have tried many other medications and it did not work. My in law who works in the clinic told me about cannabis oil and its curing effect. I purchased the cannabis oil from London by emailing and they gave me instructions on how to use the cannabis oil for the treatment of leukemia. After using the oil for the duration of time given, my son was totally free from leukemia but i was advised that he should continue to take the oil for some time to maintain good health and restore the memory completely. I am so happy now that my son is free from leukemia and if anyone are suffering from leukemia, cannabis oil is the only natural remedy to leukemia.
