Cannabis use and cancer. A list of useful studies on the benefits.

Marijuana as medicineWhen discussing cannabis for medical use most people think that it’s about people getting stoned and getting stoned somehow makes coping with a medical condition easier. Whereas that truth is there’s much more to the medical use of marijuana.
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.
The studies talk about curing cancer itself as well as preventing its spread.
The medical industry is a vital resource we all need and use. However, knowing that there is bias against cheaper and non profitable medicines by pharmaceutical companies we should look sceptically at the reasons for demonising cannabis.
After all, it doesn’t help the chemotherapy sellers when you can grow the cure in your backyard for free.
