There are diverse kinds of breast cancers; some can be treated using certain kinds of medications (if detected on time) while others require specialized treatment. Not many people are aware of the fact that the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids (medical compounds found in marijuana herb) is now being explored with regard to the treatment of various cancers. Many medical research reports have demonstrated the effects of cannabinoids in an array of cancers off late.
Studies show that medical marijuana strengthens the immune system and brings positive changes in the biological system of the patient suffering from breast cancer. Also, the cannabinoids in marijuana restrain the growth of cancerous cells by thwarting their propagation. These compounds limit the spread of cancer cells in the body.
Why Marijuana could be the Best Cure for Breast Cancer?
Although, medical science has progressed tremendously in the past decade or such, there are certain kinds of breast cancers which have been found to be resistant to conventional treatments. Medical research suggests that synthetic cannabinoids or phyto-cannabinoids (THC & CBD) are useful in treating all types and sub-types of breast cancers. The therapeutic potential of marijuana products is predominantly important for treating triple-negative-breast-cancer.
The other vital factor that plays for the use of marijuana products as breast cancer treatment is that they are relatively less toxic and safer in use than traditional mediations. It is generally observed that over a period of time, conventional medications also start affecting non-cancerous cells in the body, even causing their death. Although, marijuana products do come with some mild side-effects such as dizziness and fatigue, they are now being claimed to be comparatively better than conventional medicines which are mostly used for treating breast cancer.
Additionally, marijuana provides a number of other benefits to a cancer patient as well. The treatment of chemotherapy can lead to certain side effects in the body including loss of hair, nausea, vomiting and pain in certain parts of body. Nonetheless, anyone using marijuana as a medication doesn’t face such problems. When combined with conventional medications, cannabinoids work more actively. The synergized effect can be more path-breaking in comparison to when either of the treatments is employed alone.
Future of Breast Cancer Treatment with Marijuana
Presently, considerable research is being carried out on the medical properties of marijuana and its use in breast cancer treatment. Even though, most of the work is limited to pre-clinical trials that mainly involves cell cultures, apparently, the future is bright for cancer patients.
It has to be understood or identified which part of the population suffering from breast cancer will react most positively to the cannabinoids treatment. Unless this is achieved oncologists would be just unwilling to prescribe the drug. Bulks of the oncologists who provide marijuana treatment in Michigan are hopeful that sooner or later, the medical fraternity will begin to accept the research findings and take a step forward.
Medical marijuana remains inaccessible in most parts of the world still despite its illegal presence everywhere. However, as the wave for medical legalization of marijuana is spreading across the world, cancer patients have a reason to be hopeful. Marijuana is all set to play an imperative role in the treatment of various kinds of cancers including breast cancer in the near future provided claims are backed by thorough clinical trials and research reports.

With all the cheap imitation trippy sticks on the market it was a daunting task figuring out which ones where authentic. I've been researching for weeks until I came across an article in the iSee Kush forums. It compared different vapor pens. They praised the G-pen for its ability to be loaded manually with any full melt giving it better overall ratings over the Omicron, Vapor Rx and Atmos. So my search was over. I ordered my pen and received it shortly after. It came in quality packaging similar to what you get an iphone in. The battery requires an initial 8 hour charge for the first 3 power cycles and comes with a slick USB charger and wall plugin.

To include the term ‘medical’ is imperative because marijuana legalization is yet to take place in many parts of the world. But, some countries and states in the US have gone ahead raising the ban over medical use of marijuana. McDonough, who has been involved with High Time magazine for the past decade or such, maintains that the purpose of stones cuisine is not to provide a typical high, but to make people aware of marijuana’s not-so-well-known brighter side. She maintains that the time you talk about a food item made out of cannabis, people don’t take you seriou
sly. She also claims that it’s always beneficial to consume marijuana in the form of an edible than smoking it. Amusingly, the book, based on the concept of cannabis cookery has also got some useful information on topics like cannabis sauce.
In an interview with HuffPost, she spoke in detail about the greater advantages of consuming cannabis in the form of food than through smoking or vaporizing it. The effects last longer this way and even lungs are not affected. She went on to explain that cannabis, when cooked in oil or butter, becomes yummier. Cannabis patients who are reluctant to use saturated fats can include olive or coconut oil. However, while cooking, one should maintain a normal temperature as THC may degenerate at high temperature and loses its potency.
There is a long list of cooking recipes in the book which provide in-depth knowledge on various kinds of medicals marijuana edibles. The book mentions a wide variety of ingredients including dried buds, trimmed leaves, unpressed hash and others to start with. Both dried and fresh cannabis carry own trademark taste. Marijuana strains contain different kinds of chemicals such as terpenes and flavanoids. They may impart citrus or pine-like flavor to the foods. The book also suggests that marijuana pairs very well with chocolate and peanut butter. Some of the most popular recipes in the book include Pumpkin Pie, Rasta Pasta, Bean Soup, Reggae Rice, and Ganja Granny’s Smoked Mac ‘N’ Cheese. McDonough asserts that anyone aspiring to master cannabis cookery techniques must have patience and willingness to ‘innovate.’
It’s important to enjoy the food stuffs having cannabis as main ingredient with caution. One should eat slowly and restrain from over-eating. There are cases where people reported uncomfortable highs later. One should follow a ‘wait and watch’ policy to see how much and when the strain kicks in; person cooking cannabis food items has also been advised to follow a ‘slow and steady’ approach.
Depending upon one’s personal taste and preferences, one can try out any type of meat, tofu or vegetable in cannabis and enjoy the delicacy. Barbecue is also an option. Furthermore, presence of marijuana oils in the foods is highly effective for providing quick relief against a number of diseases. Marijuana oil equipments from Michigan can be used by the chef in order to easily extract oil from the strains and use them in sauces.
The simplicity of autoflowering cannabis cultivation renders it a highly appealing method for many beginner growers. It is also an excellent option for growers in cooler climate zones who wish to grow outdoors, or on a windowsill or balcony As most cannabis varieties available from seed companies today are dependent on day length, specialised lighting [...]
During a press conference on Wednesday, Democratic congressmen from Oregon, Colorado, Washington, and California announced that they will push for legislation to loosen the restrictions on state-legal marijuana businesses.
The five representatives sponsoring reforms hope to ease the burden for businesses in the cannabis industry by allowing them to file for federal tax deductions, open bank accounts, and operate without fear of property or forfeiture claims. They plan to introduce three bills — the Marijuana Businesses Access to Banking Act, the States’ Medical Marijuana Property Rights Protection Act, and an amendment to the IRS code relating to state-legal marijuana sales — and will seek to attach these measures to other legislation moving through Congress.
“These are relatively minor technical adjustments,” said Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, “and in times past, things like this would find their way to be part of larger pieces of legislation.” The Hill reported that the sponsors believe the bills have “little chance at moving on their own,” but that they may make it to the president’s desk if they are included in, say, the broader farm bill being debated before Congress.
The Democratic representatives were joined by businessmen involved in the sale of legalized marijuana for the announcement. Aaron Smith of the National Cannabis Industry Association told the press, “We are asking to be taxed. We are one of the only industries in the country coming to D.C. asking, ‘Tax us, but tax us fairly.’”
Supporters of the legislation claim that it will help end the dangerous “cash only” nature of state-legal marijuana businesses as well as solving conflicts between state and federal laws on the issue.

On election night last November, when voters in Colorado and Washington passed ballot initiatives making their states the first to legalize the recreational use of marijuana, they set the stage for potentially landmark legal battles that could define the future of American drug policy.
