In 1974, the NIH (National Institutes of Health) funded the Medical College of Virginia to prove that cannabis hampers the immune system and destroys brain cells. In fact, this research was triggered by the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) under the Nixon administration as a weapon against pot smokers, and a way to justify their imprisonment.
Nevertheless, regardless of their aim, researchers actually found some quite interesting facts related to cannabis. hey discovered that cancer cells were getting destroyed, not healthy cells. The immune systems were enhanced, not impeded. Well, that was the end of that research.
As DEA ordered, the research was cancelled, and all the related documentation was destroyed. Moreover, in 1976, the president Gerald Ford ended all studies concerning cannabis, except for the one by Big Pharma, which aimed at creating synthetic THC.
In 1983, other college research centers who were privy to copies of the Virginia research documents were urged by the Reagan administration to destroy them. This was almost the complete destruction of the data linked to the ability of cannabis to cure cancer.
The Virginia medical college applied for research grants for further inquiry into cannabis’ healing potentials in 1996 and 2006, both denied. lso, the mainstream media did not pay any attention to their 1974 research, except for a short mention in the Local Section of the Washington Post.
Thus, the documents concerning this research were almost completely destroyed and unreachable. Namely, scientists involved in the Spain’s huge breakthrough study of cannabis TCH cannabinoid effects on cancer in 2000, were simply unable to find them.
This statement was made when an independent investigative journalist got document copies from a California university and faxed them over. By then, the Madrid study was completed.
Namely, this was at the time when an independent investigative journalist somehow managed to get copies of the documents from a California university and faxed them over, but the research was already finished.
But even the Madrid breakthrough research on rats was ignored by virtually all of our mainstream media. Furthermore, it tested healthy rats with THC, and proved that it had no harmful effects on normal brain tissues.
Rick Simpson got more favorably objective TV media coverage in Canada when he was trying to bring cannabis curing cancer to the attention of everyone in circa 1999.Namely, this man tried to share his own experience, as well as the testimonies of many of the patients from his town about the miraculous power of cannabis.
Even nowadays, the situation is still not too different from then, the mainstream media keeps ignoring these studies and any findings concerning the subject. Currently, the Israeli government funds two major clinical studies and treatments on people with cannabis for several different diseases in two large hospitals in Israel, Sheba and Abarbanel.
Cannabis treatments- warning
Before you decide to undergo any kind of alternative cancer procedure or treatment, remember that you need to incorporate new habits and changes in the lifestyle in order to obtain the desired results. Moreover, keep in mind that the best approach is to ingest cannabis oils or pastes. You can also use a vaporizer or “vaping”, but smoking is the least effective method.
