Cannabis Saves the Day Again

Another incredible discovery has been made regarding the medicinal use of cannabis. It is already being used in several therapeutic ways to treat medical conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, according to Cornelsen. Now it has been found to significantly shrink a very aggressive brain tumor when used alongside irradiation. High-grade glioma has a very low long-term survival rate. When two of the active components of the marijuana plant are used together, cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinal (THC), they successfully shrunk the aggressive brain tumor. To understand how this works, read the original paper at the Nature website or where it was published in the Journal of Molecular Cancer Therapeutics.

It is just plain obnoxious that the ignorance, bias and herd mentality of so many people have impeded these discoveries and the many more to come. It wasn’t the government that helped to discover these incredible therapeutic uses. These foundations have limited funds, but are dedicated to helping fund original research to improve the health and healthcare of all Americans, education in science, improving education, supporting disadvantaged communities, helping reduce global poverty and many other worthy causes with which politicians won’t bother themselves.

    Thank God for the philanthropists who left so much money to the people. This particular study, and I’m sure most all of the others, were funded by grants from philanthropic foundations. It can take as much as nothing for rushmyessay to do the needful at the right time.
