Curing with Cannabis
June 9, 2009
We start the interview with Rick Simpson to talk about this amazing cancer curing oil you can make at home and then go on to talk with Dr. Robert Melamede who explains the science and nature behind this amazing life giving plant and talks about endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors.
Rick Simpson first began using marijuana to treat post-concussion syndrome after prescription drugs failed. Rick made oil from marijuana and started to treat himself after learning much about the medical properties of the plant.
Knowing firsthand that the oil cures cancer due to curing himself of skin cancer Rick started to help others educating them on how to make the oil. Rick says the oil is not limited to just cancer as whatever they have applied the oil to it appear to cure all symtons.
We also talk with Dr. Robert Melamede an expert on Endocannabinoids.
Dr. Melamede says that the Cannabis flower is the most effective and versatile medicine known to humankind. Its an overall nervous system tune-up.
By our inalienable rights we should be allowed to use it and grow it even for personal therapeutic use, without a doctors approval. Its good for us. If smoking bothers you than take a dose of the oil.
