  1. The guy had a stage 4 cancer and you're saying this study is all inclusive? That's a pretty serious cancer with or without THC; so I'm not sure if this is going to do anything to convince me that cannabis won't cure cancer! Glioblastomas are almost always fatal. I myself had a stage 3 brain cancer removed. I'm using cannabis everyday. And the last two MRIs showed no new growth that's my study. I think I'm going to continue with this experiment. 🙂 the feds are resistant to allowing any clinical trials. They're actually preventing it I'm a veteran and they don't even allow us to smoke cannabis there. Although some do I'm sure

  2. I would love it if THC was the cure for cancer. Heck, my initials are THCR!! (Yes, I have two middle names.) However, I have had two friends who smoked A LOT of very strong marijuana EVERY DAY OF THEIR LIVES FOR DECADES, and they both contracted cancer and one of them died! HOWEVER, there is indeed a cure for cancer that is extremely simple, and I have witnessed its effectiveness. This cure has long been known and has long been highly-suppressed, because it costs next to nothing. If you want to know more, give me a click.

  3. But did they eat a PLANT-BASED whole food diet while doing the cannabis treatment? Or did they keep eating animal products and processed foods cooked using high temperatures meanwhile? Because that might…… affect things. Put it to the test?

  4. Cannabis and Dandelion both grow in abundance in nature for a good reason. They are extremely important herbs that protect us from many negatives of modern life and detox/heal many illness.

  5. Cannabis oil cures cancer. Highest THC strain you can find, grown with sunlight, not HPS or LED. Takes 2 pounds of high quality bud mixed with 90% alcohol. Evaporate it down to an oil. Takes about 4 months to get rid of it. Rick Simpson has been doing this for years.

  6. Here's an update for you doc, hope you can disprove all of them: https://cannabishealthradio.com/blog/2017/07/23/episode-188-she-successfully-treated-her-3-different-cancers-with-cannabis-oil/

    Darren Miller is one of those people who have used this oil to cure his ‘incurable’ lung cancer, and managed to survive, and live against the odds.
    Initially, after his diagnosis, doctors informed him that he had a year to live, as he suffered from ‘inoperable incurable’ lung cancer.
    His treatment included chemotherapy, but he decided to also try his chances using cannabis oil, as he has read numerous success stories about its potential.
    Survival rates for lung cancer are incredibly low, with stage IA cancer survival rate at 50%, and for stage IV, only 1% of the patients manage to survive.
    Darren decided to move to California with his wife in order to be able to legally try the cannabis oil treatment.
    Only after 7 months, his cancer was gone! In an interview for the CBS News, he said:
    “Today, which is seven months later, they tell me I am completely cancer-free – not remission. I’ve cured my cancer. Now, am I giving credit to the cannabis oil? Absolutely. Am I giving credit to chemo? I would have to say yes, too. I did both.”
    His successful story made him want to help others in the similar position and set up his own cannabis oil treatment.

    Cannabidiol rather than Cannabis sativa extracts inhibit cell growth and induce apoptosis in cervical cancer cells.

    Abstract
    BACKGROUND:
    Cervical cancer remains a global health related issue among females of Sub-Saharan Africa, with over half a million new cases reported each year. Different therapeutic regimens have been suggested in various regions of Africa, however, over a quarter of a million women die of cervical cancer, annually. This makes it the most lethal cancer amongst black women and calls for urgent therapeutic strategies. In this study we compare the anti-proliferative effects of crude extract of Cannabis sativa and its main compound cannabidiol on different cervical cancer cell lines.

    METHODS:
    To achieve our aim, phytochemical screening, MTT assay, cell growth analysis, flow cytometry, morphology analysis, Western blot, caspase 3/7 assay, and ATP measurement assay were conducted.

    RESULTS:
    Results obtained indicate that both cannabidiol and Cannabis sativa extracts were able to halt cell proliferation in all cell lines at varying concentrations. They further revealed that apoptosis was induced by cannabidiol as shown by increased subG0/G1 and apoptosis through annexin V. Apoptosis was confirmed by overexpression of p53, caspase 3 and bax. Apoptosis induction was further confirmed by morphological changes, an increase in Caspase 3/7 and a decrease in the ATP levels.

    CONCLUSIONS:
    In conclusion, these data suggest that cannabidiol rather than Cannabis sativa crude extracts prevent cell growth and induce cell death in cervical cancer cell lines.

  8. In 1931….. 1 in 30 people got cancer in 2018 one and three people get cancer you should do more videos on the prevention of cancer and not fake news videos !

  9. It is funny to watch all of the pro marijuana crowd try to weasle their way out of the series of videos that Gregor has done, PROVING that weed is NOT "harmless" and is quite damaging to your body, especially over the long term.

    "Oh yeah well why don't they study the ENTIRE plant! Oh yeah well how many pple have died from chemo?!oh yes we'll I know a couple pple who smoked weed while sick and it helped them"

  10. "scooped out the tumor and injected THC directly into it" how can that be accepted as "treatment". And you, DR. Greger, swallowed that? That is not how it works. Broccoli oil dumped in to the brain would likely kill you also. Seems the testers wanted the study to fail. It's a vegetable: YOU EAT IT! sheez.

  11. In 1980 the goverment had an universary study cannabis to prove that it Caused cancer. What they proved was that it Cured 3 types of cancer. I'm sorry don't remember the name of the universary but study was of course surpressed. Be interesting if you could do find out about that. Thanks for all the Great info you share!! It is greatly appreciated!

  12. There is a cannabinoid which repairs the p53 gene. Which is a very important gene for tumors because it is responsible for not only creating a antitumor compound but is integral to the process of apoptosis. All tumors, but not all cancers must break this gene.

    The big problem with cannabis as the only treatment for cancer is that THC breaks down into hundreds of different cannabinoids and there is a multitude of variables that affect this reaction as the biology of the plant is also highly involved.

    There is a non toxic silver bullet in there though.

  13. They took a 100% fatal cancer, applied one molecule out of hundreds from a broad spectrum extract and called it good enough. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24373545

    Inhibition of colon carcinogenesis by a standardized Cannabis sativa extract with high content of cannabidiol.

    Abstract
    PURPOSE:
    Colon cancer is a major public health problem. Cannabis-based medicines are useful adjunctive treatments in cancer patients. Here, we have investigated the effect of a standardized Cannabis sativa extract with high content of cannabidiol (CBD), here named CBD BDS, i.e. CBD botanical drug substance, on colorectal cancer cell proliferation and in experimental models of colon cancer in vivo.

    METHODS:
    Proliferation was evaluated in colorectal carcinoma (DLD-1 and HCT116) as well as in healthy colonic cells using the MTT assay. CBD BDS binding was evaluated by its ability to displace [(3)H]CP55940 from human cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors. In vivo, the effect of CBD BDS was examined on the preneoplastic lesions (aberrant crypt foci), polyps and tumours induced by the carcinogenic agent azoxymethane (AOM) as well as in a xenograft model of colon cancer in mice.

    RESULTS:
    CBD BDS and CBD reduced cell proliferation in tumoral, but not in healthy, cells. The effect of CBD BDS was counteracted by selective CB1 and CB2 receptor antagonists. Pure CBD reduced cell proliferation in a CB1-sensitive antagonist manner only. In binding assays, CBD BDS showed greater affinity than pure CBD for both CB1 and CB2 receptors, with pure CBD having very little affinity. In vivo, CBD BDS reduced AOM-induced preneoplastic lesions and polyps as well as tumour growth in the xenograft model of colon cancer.

    CONCLUSIONS:
    CBD BDS attenuates colon carcinogenesis and inhibits colorectal cancer cell proliferation via CB1 and CB2 receptor activation. The results may have some clinical relevance for the use of Cannabis-based medicines in cancer patients.

  14. I did a paper in collage called smoke is bad.
    Pot can screw up your lungs cause its smoke but what makes tobacco worse is how addictive it is. Most tobacco smokers want to stop.
    Pot I got board and stopped. Think of it this way the resin in your pipe is also in your lungs thats bad for your lungs. What makes pot less dangerous is you can stop easily tobacco its not that easy.

  15. it might be easier to just say there is not enough evidence. And not to mention full cannabis extract is better then just THC in some cancers. Some require more cbd then thc. Some more Thc . This trial didnt show a lot considering these people were destroyed by chemo and radiation already. And even then, it still had some effect. We need more studies done though. And not with people already on their death beds after the chemo and radiation didnt work and about killed them. Cannabinoids may not work with every cancer. Diet needs to be evaluated as well. Maybe it would be better to do a video after a number of clinical trials instead of one that leaves more questions then answers , Im not saying this works or not, but its doing something because a lot of people have been helped with it. and not just for side effects of chemo. This video was premature and left out a lot of data. Kind of pointless to form an opinion with only partial information.

  16. The first study and the graph at 1:00 is erroneous. Making sense of what we're looking at, it should read (in red):

    THC (15mg/kg) + TMZ (5mg/kg). THC was erroneously changed to "THZ" making it easy to misread the graph. There is no "THZ" in the graph of the actual study. While THC alone seemed (according to this video) to make the cancer grow faster, THC combined with the chemotherapy drug Temozolomide shows a far better result than the chemo drug alone.

    BUT this is also false. Dr. Greger reversed the VEH curve with the THC curve. Why? If one looks at the actual study linked below, the VEH curve is the highest one, and the THC curve is below it demonstrating a benefit from the THC alone. How could these mistakes have been made? Accident?

  17. One gram of whole plant extract every day for 90 days is what the cannabis consultants in California claim will eliminate cancer from the body. I tend to think this has some validity considering cannabinoids encourage homeostasis. Injecting THC into the brain sounds elaborate and misleading. One can only hope we see some proper clinical trials in the future modeled around what people claim is actually working.

  18. Very interesting on how the tumor shrank at first, this is probably when the thc should have been stopped and a diet of raw sprouts and crude chlorophyll like wheatgrass could have been implemented to clean the rest up, just a thought. Thanks and rip to the people in the trial

  19. People with cancer and their families are the only ones looking for a cure. The medical industry has become nothing, but a scam. Pharmaceuticals kill over 100,000 people every year, in America alone, taken as directed. Many more are killed by overdose or medical error. Most pharmaceuticals only treat symptoms and do not cure diseases and are very dangerous yet they are legal. The medical industry is run by the pharmaceuticals, from higher education to the doctors office to research…they run it all. Cancer is too profitable to cure like every other disease, they won't allow it. Medical debt is one of the leading ways that Americans are being drained of their wealth. Something is really wrong with that picture.

  20. I see all the potheads are out in force on this topic, how about putting down the bong and start eating healthy. The only thing pot is good for is reducing vomiting from chemo and as a pain reliever.
