12 Medical marijuana miracles you should know about

November 18th, 2013 | By

Rick Simpson

Rick is the guy that originally worked out how to use cannabis against cancer when curing his own skin cancer. He then tried (without success) to take this medicine to the Canadian authorities after curing hundreds of people of cancer. They raided his house and tried to prosecute him.

Concentrated cannabis oil made in this way is now known as Rick Simpson Oil. Many many people have benefitted from Rick’s story and methods. We owe him a big one. Watch Run from the Cure here.

 

Charlotte Figi

This recent documentary follows a family trying to care for their daughter Charlotte who has Dravet Syndrome (a severe untreatable form of epilepsy). She also has attention deficit disorder. At 2 years old, her parents had tried all recommended meds and some of them nearly killed her. She was having 50 seizures a night. Sometimes, 300 a week! She was catatonic. Doctors wanted to put her into a medically induced coma. At 5 she managed to get a medical marijuana card in Colorado.

Upon starting her first dose of high CBD oil, her seizures stopped immediately, and there were no more seizures at all that day or night. She came out of her state and her parents got to meet her for the first time. A year later she is eating by herself – a completely different child.

Watch the CNN documentary here or a shorter summary.

 

Cashy Hyde

Cash Hyde had a stage four brain tumor. He first became ill when just two years old. He had a 4.5 cm brain tumor around his optic nerve. Surgery removed 10% of the tumor and he was then put on high dose chemo and stem cell therapy. His parents were told he was going to die. None of the pharmaceuticals were working. He stopped eating and was vomiting 9 or 10 times a day. Doctors had no answers. His parent fed him cannabis oil through his feeding tube. He starts to eat and recovery begins immediately. Ultimately, Cash lost his battle, though his parents remain convinced cannabis kept him alive.

Kristen Courtney

Kristen was on over 40 different medicines. Methotrixate and other potent anti inflammatories which nearly took her sight and caused her face to swell up. She was taking many painkillers and antibiotics. She had classic steroid toxicity, with a face the shape of a moon. At 16, she was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and that evolved into a lupus condition, interstitial cystitis, an auto immune disorder and she was bedridden for four years. Her mother thought she was going to die. Then, she started juicing raw cannabis, and after 4-6 weeks, her pain stopped and her recovery began.

Joanne

Joanne was sent home to die. She had multiple chemo treatments that nearly killed her. She found Rick Simpson oil, and after only 2 weeks, she had more energy. After one month, she felt better. Six weeks later, she was in full remission. The oil also helped in her recovery from chemo.

See her testimony.

 

Dial Hall

Dial had very advanced lung cancer and was on his death bed in his final hours. The family were told he was hours from death. They stopped the morphine and gave cannabis oil instead and the guy was brought back to his family. He got up, walked, and started eating food – his family got extra time with him they would never have had if he had stayed on morphine.

Shona Banda treats her Crohn’s Disease using cannabis. She has recovered from Crohn’s Disease, which she had for 8 years. At one point, she was bedridden and walking with a cane. She had been sent home to die and was on her deathbed. She saw Rick Simpson’s video and later bought an old dome vaporiser which she left on heating for a while, then noticed small amounts of oil forming inside the vaporizer. She started treating herself with this oil. Now she is cured entirely, goes hiking and can care for her children properly.

David Triplett

David had 2 cancerous lesions removed from his nose, but they returned in 2009. He got a prescription for cream to use and discovered the cream was actually a chemo drug.

After 3-4 weeks, the oil actually brought cancer out from his nose and destroyed it.
