Dr. William Courtney is a member of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine. Originally a sceptic of the use of marijuana, but after seeing the benefit first hand he has become an advocate for the cannabis plant. His youngest patient is just 8 months old and has a massive centrally located tumour in the brain that is imperdible.
The child’s father was successfully able to push forward and get permission to use Medical Marijuana seeing as the cannabis plant hasn’t been 100% regulated.
Because of their access to medical marijuana, they were able to avoid the treatments associated with cancer. These treatments are:
All of which have extremely bad effects on the body as it not only kills cancer cells but also kills healthy cells with it. This in turn, can have severe damaging effects on the body’s immune system. Luckily medical marijuana is clinically proven to kill off cancerous and bad cells while regenerating and keeping the good cells healthy. All in all, the THC compound of the marijuana plant has shown to make cancer cells “commit suicide”. This is obviously a simple terminology and summary of the research carried out on THC and cancer.
Within four months of using medical marijuana, the eight year old child was able to significantly reduce the size of the tumour located in their brain, and the child was in remission by 8 months of using medical marijuana. This will allow the child to not have to experience the long-term side effects of chemotherapy or radiation which can be very damaging to themselves. The child is being called a miracle baby and Dr Courtney wants it to be used as an example of the potential of marijuana as a treatment option.
