Life-Saving Secrets Of Cannabis.
Marijuana or medical weed, the hemp plant Cannabis sativa, has an active ingredient called THC, which makes you feel high when smoked. This plant is grown wild in warm and tropical climates, also known as many names such as, pot, grass, cannabis, weed, hemp, hash, marijuana, and ganja etc.
Marijuana has been identified as an herbal remedy for thousands of years. Scientists have studied the active component called cannabinoids. However, the US Drug Enforcement Administration doesn’t allow medical marijuana and its cannabinoids be prescribed, possessed or sold legally under federal law. And currently, only 6% of medical properties has been found in Marijuana.
This can be used to treat medical conditions under state laws in many states. The two best-studied components which researchers think have medicinal application, are the chemicals delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) good for pain relieving, and cannabidiol (CBD) which impact the brain without getting high. A pharmaceutical form of THC, Dronabinol and Nabilone, a cannabinoid drug that is accepted by the FDA to treat few clinical conditions.
The hemp plant, cannabis has been a controversial subject and is illegal to consume in many countries worldwide including the United States. This has been declared recently after intensive research that, it is an herb and it “Can Cure CANCER.” The drug has been legalized for medical purposes in more than 20 States in the United States. But the subject is still controversial whether smoked marijuana is effective or its enriched products.
Also, THC pills (Dronabinol) work in a similar manner and produces same health benefits and is more effective than smoked drug. Only Dronabinol, is a man-made cannabinoid, is approved by the FDA to treat some medical conditions.
The recent study with animals have shown evidence that the extracts from the whole marijuana plant help kill certain cancer cells and reduce the brain tumor. When the extracts of cannabis were used with radiation on mice, it helped in killing the cancer. Despite of many odds have been heard, and created a confusion across the nation, whether the information was reliable and definite. But the truth is that every day many people all over the world treat their cancer and other related illness with cannabis oil.
How Medical Weed, CBD and THC Kills Cancer Cells.
The family of interconvertible sphingolipids called- “Sphingolipid Rheostat” controls the life and death of every cell. The cell is strong on vitality if endogenous ceramide is low, and if ceramide is high then cell death is sure. With THC’s connection to CB1 or CB2 cannabinoid receptor position of the cancer cells, there is an increase in ceramid synthesis which enforces the cell death. In normal health conditions, the cell never produces ceramide when THC is present and is not affected by the cannabinoid.
The cause of cancer cell death is not cytotoxic chemicals, but due to the tiny shift in the mitochondria. When creamide starts to collect and turns up the Sphingolipid Rheostat, it improves the mitochondrial membrane pore that penetrates to cytochrome c, which is a severe protein in energy synthesis. The source of energy for the cell is killed by pushing Cytochrome c from the mitochondria.
Thus, this process works with the accumulation of ceramide in the system. When the therapeutic amount of CBD and THC is used over a period of time, the cancerous cell death pathway is built. Both CBD and THC drugs help in killing the cancer. It has been scientifically proven that THC and CBD cannabinoids have the ability to hijack the lipoxygenase pathway and directly kills cancer cells. Moreover, cannabidiol preserves the natural endocannabinoid in the body that breaks down the anandamide and helps stops tumor growth.
Many medical reports have been prepared and released after extensive medical research on the cannabis subject, done by Complutense University in Madrid and the University hospital of Tenerife. The reports published the results that the use of chemical cannabinoids can help to treat the brain tumor called glioblastoma multiforme. The cannabinoids help to activate the genes needed to produce a VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor). This VEGF chemical helps in producing new cells and make new cells grow.
