Marijuana Compounds Offer ‘Promising’ Treatment Option For Neurodegenerative Disorders

Cannabis’ active components show promise in halting the progression of certain neurodegerative disorders and should be evaluated in clinical trials, according to a review published online in theBritish Journal of Pharmacology.

Neurodegenerative Disorders

An international team of researchers from Spain and Israel assessed the potential of cannabinoids to moderate Huntington’s disease (HD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD), two degenerative brain disorders that are mostly unresponsive to conventional treatment therapies.

“Cannabinoids are promising medicines to slow down disease progression in neurodegenerative disorders including Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Huntington’s disease (HD), two of the most important disorders affecting the basal ganglia,” authors reported.

Researchers noted that both THC and cannabidiol (CBD) have been demonstrated to “protect nigral or striatal neurons in experimental models of both disorders.” Investigators added that the separate “activation of CB(2) [cannabinoid] receptors leads to a slower progression of neurodegeneration in both disorders.”

Authors concluded, “[T]he evidence reported so far supports that those cannabinoids having antioxidant properties and/or capability to activate CB(2) receptors may represent promising therapeutic agents in HD and PD, thus deserving a prompt clinical evaluation.”

In June, a team of investigators from Spain, Italy, and the United Kingdom reported in the Journal of Neuroscience Research that the administration of THC and CBD-rich botanical extracts delays the progress of Huntington’s disease in laboratory animals.

Separate studies have also indicated the potential of cannabinoids to moderate additional neurodegenerative diseases, including Lou Gehrig’s disease and Alzheimer’s.

”Miracle” Cannabis Oil: May Treat Cancer, But Money and the Law Stand in the Way of Finding Out.

 By Chris Roberts Wednesday, Apr 24 2013

First it was a cough. Then it was bronchitis. Then it was time to say goodbye to Michelle Aldrich.

Constance Finley was mistaken for a narc by classmates at Oaksterdam University. Now, she says, a San Francisco oncologist refers to her Stage 4 cancer patients, many of whom are given weeks to live, and all of whom she says receive healing from an oil she makes from the cannabis plant.
Cannabis oil, which cancer-sufferers credit with saving their lives, and which is supposedly useful in healing other ailments, from diabetes to skin rashes, is made by distilling raw bud down to its essential ingredients.
Most of the plant material is removed using a solvent. What’s left is up to 83 percent active ingredients. Patients start taking a dose the size of a grain of rice before ramping up to a full gram per day.
Michelle Aldrich says her life was saved by cannabis oil, which she credits for her swift recovery from lung cancer. “I always knew it was medicine,” the lifelong marijuana advocate says, “and now I’ve proved it. I’m living proof.”

The year 2011 was supposed to be a good one for the 66-year-old. That June, she and her husband, Michael, were feted with a lifetime achievement award by High Times magazine for their four decades of work on marijuana legalization. Yet something was off. She was smoking a lot, maybe more than ever.

And she couldn’t get high.

In the fall of that year — a bad time for the local marijuana movement, as the federal Justice Department began shutting down hundreds of California medical cannabis dispensaries — Aldrich went in to see a series of doctors for what she thought was a flu that just refused to go away.

After six weeks of progressively worse diagnoses — flu became bronchitis, which became pneumonia — a CT scan revealed the cause behind the “heat” she felt in the middle of her chest. A tumor, “poorly-differentiated non-small cell adenocarcinoma.” In other words, stage 3 lung cancer.

Lung cancer is a killer, with nearly 70 percent of new cases resulting in deaths, according to statistics published by the National Cancer Institute. “I thought I was going to die,” Aldrich says from her Marina District apartment. But she didn’t. And now, she is busy telling anyone who will listen that, along with diet and chemotherapy, a concoction of highly concentrated cannabis oil eliminated her cancer in less than four months.

She was diagnosed in January 2012; by April, CT scans revealed that the tumor had shrunk by 50 percent. Her surgeon at California Pacific Medical Center removed what was left of the tumor that May. (CPMC did not return calls by press time.) She isn’t “officially” cured yet — a cancer patient needs five years of cancer-free living to beat the disease — but her most-recent scan, on March 27, was all clear. Her doctors — one of whom noted the effect of “homeopathic treatments, including hemp oil” to reprogram the cancer cells to kill themselves — “are floored,” she says. “They’ve never seen anything like it.”


Constance Finley has. She says that, over the last year, a “world-class oncologist” — who for now wants to remain nameless, perhaps to preserve his practice — has referred 26 people to her, a skilled East Bay marijuana grower who knows how to distill a pound of high-grade bud to an ounce of oil.

                                                                                                           Anna Latino

The oil itself is simple. Anyone with a bucket, a pile of pot, and a solvent can make it. First devised by Canadian cannabis pioneer Rick Simpson — from which it derives one of its names, Simpson oil — the oil is merely cannabis distilled to its essential active cannabinoids, with as much of the plant material as possible removed using the solvent. Aldrich’s providers of what they call “milagro oil” at Wo/Men’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana in Santa Cruz use Everclear; Finley uses 99 isopropryl alcohol.

The oil also is extremely potent. Finley says her concoction is 72 percent tetrahydracannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that gets you stoned, and which in lab studies has shrunk tumors in rats; and 11 percent cannabidiol, or CBD, the cannabinoid in marijuana that studies suggest doesn’t get you high but has anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety properties.

It may not be for everyone: Patients start with a dose as small as a grain of rice before ramping up to a full gram per day, a hit that can leave some people woozy and dizzy — uncomfortably high. And it’s expensive. A pound of good bud runs $2,500 to $3,000 in the Bay Area, and Finley ships to anywhere in California. Aldrich says a three-month regimen cost her $1,200 a month; Finley charges $5,500 for a two-month cycle.

But it might be money well-spent. All 26 of Finley’s referrals had stage 4 cancers — brain tumors, colon cancers, lung cancers — which means the malignant growths had metastasized to other organs. Most had prognoses of a few months to live, some had less than six weeks. All complemented modern Western medicine treatments such as chemotherapy with the concentrated oil — and all but one have survived, she says. A patient’s prognosis can very widely depending on the type of cancer, but the disease is a reliable killer at stage 4, meaning Finley’s patients’ 96 percent survival rate is unheard-of.

“I’m not a stoner,” she says now, almost defensively, noting that classmates at Oakland-based cannabis grow college Oaksterdam University, where she honed her cultivator skills, at times mistook her for an undercover cop. “It was against my own prejudice that this could really be true.”

These survival stories are becoming more common. One of the most high-profile was the case of Montana toddler Cash Hyde, diagnosed with a brain tumor at 20 months, whose family credits cannabis oil for keeping the tumor at bay and keeping him alive — until a change in Montana state law cut off his access to oil for a few months. The tumor returned and he died in November, at age four.

These stories are remarkable, but for now they’re also just stories — which means they’re all but worthless to the medical community, which needs hard data. “Anecdotes are not evidence — you need to do research, controlled studies,” says Dr. Donald Abrams, the chief of oncology at San Francisco General Hospital and an integrative medicine specialist at the University of California at San Francisco. Abrams, a personal friend of the Aldriches who has researched cannabis’s medical value extensively — and is a believer in its value — is still a scientific skeptic. “I hear stories all the time — ‘I was cured of cancer by this or that’ — and most of the time it’s frankly bogus.”

This skepticism helps explain why, right now, it appears no scientists in the United States are researching the health benefits of this purported miracle oil. Which means that more and more Americans are turning to something that for now is little more than a folk remedy — in the same scientific category as snake oil — and, so they claim, finding a faster, less toxic cure to near-incurable diseases.

Government Study Proves THC from Cannabis Destroys Cancer Cells

– Government Study Proves THC from Cannabis Destroys Cancer Cells (Big Health Report, August 30, 2011):

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16908594:

Abstract

Plant-derived cannabinoids, including Delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), induce apoptosis in leukemic cells, although the precise mechanism remains unclear. In the current study, we investigated the effect of THC on the upstream and downstream events that modulate the extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) module of mitogen-activated protein kinase pathways primarily in human Jurkat leukemia T cells. The data showed that THC down-regulated Raf-1/mitogen-activated protein kinase/ERK kinase (MEK)/ERK/RSK pathway leading to translocation of Bad to mitochondria. THC also decreased the phosphorylation of Akt. However, no significant association of Bad translocation with phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/Akt and protein kinase A signaling pathways was noted when treated cells were examined in relation to phosphorylation status of Bad by Western blot and localization of Bad to mitochondria by confocal analysis. Furthermore, THC treatment decreased the Bad phosphorylation at Ser(112) but failed to alter the level of phospho-Bad on site Ser(136) that has been reported to be associated with phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/Akt signal pathway. Jurkat cells expressing a constitutively active MEK construct were found to be resistant to THC-mediated apoptosis and failed to exhibit decreased phospho-Bad on Ser(112) as well as Bad translocation to mitochondria. Finally, use of Bad small interfering RNA reduced the expression of Bad in Jurkat cells leading to increased resistance to THC-mediated apoptosis. Together, these data suggested that Raf-1/MEK/ERK/RSK-mediated Bad translocation played a critical role in THC-induced apoptosis in Jurkat cells.

The government study was done by Jia WHegde VLSingh NPSisco DGrant SNagarkatti M,Nagarkatti PS at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Medical College of Virginia Campus, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, USA.

Can Cannabidiol (CBD) Fight Metastatic Cancer?

Can Cannabidiol (CBD) Fight Metastatic Cancer? According to the latest research the answer is yes.

Important news for Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s new line of high concentrate CBD health and wellness products.

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC: MJNA), a leading hemp industry innovator, is pleased to report on a September 18 San Francisco Chronicle Article, “Pot compound seen as tool against cancer.”

The article states that scientists at California Pacific Medical Center who have been researching marijuana’s compounds for the 20 years have found that Cannabidiol, or CBD, has the ability to “turn off” the DNA that causes “breast and other types of cancers” to metastasize. CBD is the second-most abundant cannabinoid within marijuana, but does not cause the psychotropic high of THC.

Americans for Safe Access vs DEA

Medical Marijuana Rescheduling Lawsuit Moving

by Phillip Smith, July 30, 2012, 03:26pm,

A decade after the Coalition for Rescheduling Cannabis (CRC) filed its petition seeking to have marijuana moved from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, the federal courts will finally review the scientific evidence regarding the therapeutic efficacy of marijuana. The DC Circuit Court of Appeals announced late last week that it will hear oral arguments in October in a lawsuit filed by Americans for Safe Access (ASA) to force the government to act.

The lawsuit, Americans for Safe Access vs. DEA, was filed in January after the DEA denied the CRC’s rescheduling petition the previous July. The DEA took nine years to decide to do nothing about rescheduling marijuana.

Under the Controlled Substances Act, Schedule I is reserved for drugs that “have a high potential for abuse, have no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and there is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.”

Patient advocates charge the DEA and other federal agencies have ignored an increasing mountain of evidence on marijuana’s therapeutic efficacy and that marijuana is “currently accepted [for] medical use in treatment” in 17 states and the District of Columbia. They also charge that the rescheduling process for marijuana has been “encumbered by politics” and that federal agencies are throwing roadblocks in the way of scientific research on medical marijuana.

“Medical marijuana patients are finally getting their day in court,” said ASA chief counsel Joe Elford. “This is a rare opportunity for patients to confront politically motivated decision-making with scientific evidence of marijuana’s medical efficacy. What’s at stake in this case is nothing less than our country’s scientific integrity and the imminent needs of millions of patients.”

Oral arguments will take place Tuesday, October 16, at 9:30am at the E. Barrett Prettyman US Courthouse in downtown Washington.

Granny Storm’s updated list is available and everyone should have it! This list has over 800 pages of research links. She will send a free PDF copy to anyone who sends her an email at stormcrow@greenpassion.org . I added Granny’s index to the bottom of this post to entice you!

THANK YOU GRANNY!

From Granny’s list: Women need to know that CBD from cannabis can slow the progress of aggressive breast cancers. Everyone should be aware that when it comes to preventing Alzheimer’s, THC greatly outperforms Aricept. And in the 1950s, it was discovered that a simple cannabis extract kills 100% of drug-resistant Staph aureus germs on contact. Drug-resistant Staph aureus is now called MRSA, the flesh-eating bacteria.
