While the baby’s father pushed for a non-conventional remedy for his son, the Doctor in charge, Dr. William Courtney, said it was good that put CBD oil on the boy’s pacifier twice a day…
Having increased the dose daily, the boy’s father may well be responsible for saving his life, even if he didn’t put his boy through radiation treatment and Chemo. As Dr Courtney said, “this child…is not going to have the long-term side effects that would come from a very high dose of chemotherapy or radiation,” and that is great news.
The research is quite clear, as Lipid messenger molecules in the human body preceded cannabis by billions of years. These same Lipid molecules were also present in the earliest autocrine and paracrine modulation of cellular function. So while these things are older than the hills, the human understanding of cannabis and the Endocannabinoid system in the body is in its infancy.
Research has now found that CBD, the non-psychoactive compound in cannabis which offers medicinal relief and shrinks tumors, could be used to treat a whole host of ailments. Some studies have found that CBD actually turns off the gene which is responsible for metastatis, one of the most aggressive forms of Cancer.
According to Dr. Courtney, CBD prevents cancer in the first place, and even reduces the risk of heart attacks by 66% in certain patients. According to Courtney, who spoke about how best to take medical cannabis, he said, “If you heat the plant, you will decarboxylate THC-acid and you will get high, you”ll get your 10 mg. If you don’t heat it, you can go up to five or six hundred milligrams & use it as a Dietary Cannabis. . . and push it up to the Anti-oxidant and Neuro-protective levels which come into play at hundreds of milligrams.”
And more than that, Dr Courtney added that, “The Hemp plant is actually an excellent plant because the THC content can be low, that’s if you’re treating a condition for which appears CBD food supplement is in order”
This is just one of many stories which highlights how a natural and totally organic plant like cannabis can iin fact help with a whole host of medical issues, and even works to shrink tumors. It is hoped that the relevant government bodies will follow suit soon, instead of subjecting babies to dangerous Chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
