Government-Run Cancer Institute Quietly Acknowledges That Cannabis Kills Cancer

The National Cancer Institute is an organization mandated by U.S. law to educate Americans about cancer and the latest research efforts. According to its website, NCI is touted as “the U.S. government’s principal agency for cancer research.” And recently, it quietly admitted that cancer cells have been killed by cannabis in a lab setting.

NCI’s website has a section that provides a basic overview of what cannabis is and how cannabinoids affect the human body. Included in this section is a surprising bullet point:

“Cannabis has been shown to kill cancer cells in the laboratory (see Question 6).”

“Question 6” refers to whether any preclinical studies have been conducted using either cannabis or cannabinoids. The website references studies conducted on mice and rats that allude to cannabinoids inhibiting tumor growth by causing cells to die, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels tumors rely on for growth. It also linked to additional studies which are summarized below:

  • Cannabinoids can potentially reduce the risk of colon cancer due to its anti-inflammatory effects on the colon;
  • Delta-9-THC was found to damage or kill liver cancer cells;
  • Delta-9-THC had anti-tumor effects;
  • CBD caused breast cancer cell death while having little effect on normal/healthy breast cells;
  • CBD, when used with chemotherapy, may help make chemotherapy more effective and increase cancer cell death without adversely impacting normal/healthy cells.

Furthermore, NCI acknowledged that cannabis can help with the following:

  • Stimulating appetite
  • Pain relief
  • Relieving nausea/vomiting
  • Treating anxiety
  • Improving sleep quality

Despite all of this promising research, NCI clarified that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved cannabis for use in treating cancer, and only two cannabinoids (dronabinol and nabilone) are approved for treating nausea and vomiting as a result of chemotherapy treatment.

The U.S. government keeps cannabis federally illegal, throwing nonviolent drug offenders in jail and instructs the DEA to raid cannabis businesses while at the same time acknowledging through its own cancer institute that cannabis may possess cancer-killing properties. We have a potentially powerful cancer-fighting agent at our fingertips, and by allowing for more cannabis research in an effort to save as many people from this devastating disease as possible is something we cannot rely upon our government to ensure.

Currently, the death toll from cancer is over 300 million people since a safer alternative for treating cancer from cannabis was known in 1974. If the government knows cannabis treats and or cures cancer, but continues to sell us Big Pharma drugs and non-cures, creating more customers for life, that eventually leads to death, there is no question that doing such is a form of genocide.

Unless we become aware of what our government is capable of, then and only then can we free ourselves from the grips of government controlled agencies like the FDA (the Fraud and Death Administration, as we like to call them here at Natural Revolution), that admit to killing hundreds of thousands of people each year from the approved drugs they push.

To those who may have cancer, there have been many testimonials to the effectiveness against cancer through Rick Simpon’s Oil, which is derived from cannabis; please visit www.phoenixtears.ca for more information.

It’s truly up to us to be our own health advocates and research what is best for us from all credible sources; when we do this, we put our lives in our own hands and become more aware, potentially saving our own lives.

    Cancer Research UK states this:

    ”We’ve recently seen stories in the press claiming that the US government has “admitted that cannabis kills cancer” (for example, this one in the Metro), based on the observation that pages on the US National Cancer Institute information website carry details of the current scientific evidence around the effects of cannabis and cannabinoids on cancer cells in the lab and animal models.

    The first thing to point out is that the NCI’s cancer information website is an independent resource for doctors and the patients, and is not a statement of NIH, NCI or US government policy.

    Furthermore, the information on these pages isn’t new, nor is it an ‘admission’ of any kind: the scientific evidence about cannabis, cannabinoids and cancer, which these media stories are referring to, has been openly published on the NCI’s website for several years – for example, see this page from the same section of the NIH website on cannabis and cannabinoids from 2011, accessed via the internet archive.”
