So i Have run up on this countless times on facebook and the internet and am willing to be many of you have as well. the following is an off the cuff post i made in a rushed manner, just to have something to get this thread going. Ill come back to it a little more professionally later today.
Pharma is not hiding anything, they wont loose money from cannabis, they would make millions, because no matter what you wish to think, rubbing hash oil on your skin or smoking joints isnt going to treat anything but nausea and pain. there is tons of money to be made in researching treatment vectors, doseing, ROA, targeting, specialized derivatives, etc. there is NO conspiracy here, outside of your own heads that is.
There is no lack of research by big pharma, they are dumping tons of money into it.
all studies are with chemical derivatives, synthetically altered compounds, or the original compounds, delivered to cultured cells in a dish via highly specialized technologies and at high levels outside the body. So the "natural" tag people like to attach to this doesnt count. in noway will the actual cure, if any ever comes of this, be natural in anyway. it will look just like any other cancer treatment.
So far as i have ever been able to find, no study has shown an effect in a real person. If you have read a website that said So and So was cured, they are lying, or most likely, they just went into remission and have blindly credited it to the cannabis.
Do Not demonize Chemotherapy. Chemo isnt even a single item. it is a whole class of drugs. Drugs which have saved the lives of MILLIONS of people. Dont forget that. Yes it tends to make you sick, and you can die from it, but you are dying anyway so..
In regards to medical cannabis, if you think there is anything such as a cure of any kind of sickness, mental or physical, outside of symptom mitigation, you have been advertised to and indoctrinated by people with product to sell.
One cannot even "Cure Cancer" with a single product, as cancer is a word describing thousands of things, each needing its own treatment, each with totally unique conditions and requirements.
I fully support the use of cannabinoids in symptom mitigation, in case my postings here lead you to think otherwise. But i feel it is myths and half baked ideas such as these which are perpetuated by the medical cannabis community and the potheads around it which do FAR more damage to any effort of getting positive work or legislation done than they realize. An experiment in self condemnation.
I post the following because someone ALWAYS says it:
No, you cannot say prove it doesnt cure cancer
