My news feed is constantly full of articles about how cannabis cures cancer. So explain to me why Bob Marley died of melanoma...

Perhaps it was because he wasn't living in a Petrie dish or wasn't a rodent???  

 

The following is from -

Abrams, D. I., & Guzman, M. (2015). Cannabis in cancer care. Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics, 97(6), 575-586.

"Despite these impressive in vitro and animal model findings regarding the potential antitumor effects of cannabinoids, there is still no solid basis for ongoing claims by proponents of highly concentrated cannabis extracts or oils that these preparations can “cure cancer.” Increasing numbers of patients in North America are seeking oils high in THC and/or CBD due to testimonials that patients have used these preparations either topically to eradicate skin cancers or systemically to eliminate nonskin cancers. This has led to a number of patients seeking to forego or postpone potentially curative conventional cancer therapies in favor of self-medicating with high-potency cannabis oils. Many patients claiming to be cured of their cancers have used the products in addition to conventional cancer therapies, thus obfuscating the issue further. Although the in vitro and animal evidence is intriguing, there have not yet been any robust human studies investigating cannabis as an anticancer agent that would warrant advising patients to forego conventional therapy in favor of using a high-potency cannabis extract. Patients who choose to delay conventional therapies in the hopes of benefiting from a trial of cannabis oil against their cancer risk the possibility of having a potentially treatable cancer become incurable."

Yeah don't get me wrong, I'm all for its use, I'm just getting a bit sick of the constant claims without any evidence.

Seems to be the way all these things go G.  A lot of people both pro and anti at the extreme ends of the spectrum of beliefs about new use for drug X with the truth lying somewhere round the middle.  

Thing with the cannabis and cancer cure claims is no-one ever bothers to mention you can kill all cancers in vitro, and rodents have a far better immune system than humans.

Sad thing is people pushing their more extreme beliefs about these things just polarise those who may possibly be inclined to accept there may be potential for benefits, and push those who are anti their beliefs even further to the extremes. 

Me, my lab mates and other researchers I know see the same thing happening with psychedelics...plenty of positive therapeutic potential, but people banging on about how they will solve everyone's problems just scare away people who are unsure what to believe, and further polarise those who are against spending money on psychedelic research.

So I get asked by my work colleagues if I am coming to the work Christmas party. I explained I won't be attending because I don't like any of them and the thought of spending a Saturday night with them filled me with cold dread.

We all laughed. They laughed because they thought I was joking. I laughed because I was telling the truth.

I assume cannabis helps people through chemo, which does the healing.

Even just helping the person eat is such a great achievement

Stimulating appetite and also a will to continue on is a huge thing in the chemo world. Its pretty bleak otherwise. :)

It's also anti-emetic so helps with chemo related nausea.  There's a drug called Nabilone which is a synthetic analogue of THC that has been prescribed (albeit in limited amounts) for decades for chemo patients in Australia.

Individuals with exploding head syndrome hear or experience loud imagined noises as they are falling asleep or waking up, have a strong, often frightened emotional reaction to the sound, and do not report significant pain; around 10% of people also experience visual disturbances like perceiving visual static, lightning, or flashes of light. Some people may also experience heat, strange feelings in their torso, or a feeling of electrical tinglings that ascends to the head before the auditory hallucinations occur.

[2] With the heightened arousal, people experience distress, confusion, myoclonic jerks, tachycardia, sweating, and the sensation that feels as if they have stopped breathing and have to make a deliberate effort to breathe again.[4][7][8][9]

 

The pattern of the auditory hallucinations is variable. Some people report having a total of two or four attacks followed by a prolonged or total remission, having attacks over the course of a few weeks or months before the attacks spontaneously disappear, or the attacks may even recur irregularly every few days, weeks, or months for much of a lifetime.[2]

 

Some individuals mistakenly believe that EHS episodes are not natural events, but are the effects of directed energy weapons which create an auditory effect.[10] Thus, EHS has been worked into conspiracy theories, but there is no scientific evidence that EHS has non-natural origins.

so i can understand the highlighted section. quite lately it's been getting worse this feeling of an "exploding head" but not just an hallucination but a feeling of my head literally exploding, or energy of such magnitude that my brain will break. the other night it was quite intense and mostly uncontrollable but intense enough that i would be somewhat shocked/disoriented and greeted with visual hallucinations in the form of balls/ribbons in front of my face. usually hallucinations are fairly mild in the form of voices/noises a feeling of floating in air or being in another time/place (like thinking i'm a location/bed i've stayed in previously). 

 

but anyway back to the DEW. it was crossing my mind the other night as i was being bombarded by this intense incontrollable quite uncomfortable energy almost breaking my brain in two. i dont believe it btw as I create the situation somewhat, at least influence it. but why would some international cabal in control of highly advanced remote Directed ENergy Weapons want to break my brain in two? i dont think that's a question most peolpe who sincerely believe this are able to answer [/endblog].
