An Overview of the Endocannabinoid System and Cannabinoids (How Cannabis Cures Cancer)

(Updated 02/07/2014 – added several new video clippings, conference recordings, and interviews.)

Disclaimer: It is important to note that consulting with your doctor/physician should take precedence and come first when deciding upon treating any ailment or disease. Additionally, research into cannabis, while the field is indeed growing, is still limited and the need for clinical trials and experiments is a topic that society needs to collectively address. Proper and effective dosing, for example, is a facet of medical marijuana that has been difficult to establish due to restrictions our governments have in place.The potential for cannabis’ ability to save lives is one that cannot be overlooked, but unfortunately still needs to be intensively studied.  

The following is a collection of research literature, resources, documentaries, interviews, and lecture clippings regarding the Endocannabinoid System and Cannabinoids contained in cannabis. The material below explains the science behind how marijuana is able to cure or treat so many diseases and ailments.

It is important to note that a lot more research into the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and Cannabinoids are still being done. With that said, please continue to do your own research as well – google “cannabis cures cancer,” “marijuana cure,” “cannabinoids;” try looking up individuals who have success stories with cannabis; try speaking to professionals within the medical marijuana industry. Again the best research are the ones you do on your own.
