Pure, Natural Coca Leaf – A Healing Gift Of The Divine Plant

Prostate Cancer “Speeding Up”? WTF? Pass the CBD!

Leave a comment

APCI’m reading an alarming article on the rapidly rising rate of metastatic prostate cancer in US men 55-69, and there is much discussion of things like the role of reduced screening in the explosion of this out-of-control disease.

But what really caught my eye were comments by the doctors conducting the research like:

“The fact that men in 2013 who presented with metastatic disease had much higher PSAs than similar men in 2004 hints that more aggressive disease is on the rise,”

“One hypothesis is the disease has become more aggressive, regardless of the change in screening.”

My reaction here is probably the same as yours – these guys are saying that less aggressive types of cancer can become more aggressive.

Not just in one person, but as a type of disease.

They seem to be saying that types of Cancers evolve, similar to disease-causing bacteria that gradually become resistant to antibiotics. So a type of cancer – in this case Prostate Cancer – that historically has been pretty slow-moving can all of a sudden, nationwide, for no apparent reason, speed up?

Maybe this is old news and I haven’t been listening, but it seems pretty important in the context of the urgency of gaining widespread credibility & acceptance for natural medicines like Cannabis, Coca and Opium, especially since after over 50 years of the miracle cancer medicines created by Pig Pharma we now have the goddamned things speeding up!

Meanwhile people worldwide are telling the internet that they or somebody they love has been cured of Cancer by one Cannabis-based treatment or another – there are very fluid limits to Cannabis as a medicine and I suspect that we’re nowhere near them yet. And we’re not focusing at all in the US on the healing properties of pure Coca Leaf.

There is work to be done, and at least there are a lot of talented people doing it.

Anyone can find out the latest 2016 clinical and streetwise information with some quick searches, and NIH’s “PubMed” website is a great place to look for the clinical side of Cannabis health research.

To get you started here is a good summary of Cannabis Prostate research as of 2012 by the National Institutes of Health “PubMed” (there are later findings, but this is a good place to start if you haven’t been on PubMed yet):

“The Role Of Cannabinoids In Prostate Cancer: Basic Science Perspective And Potential Clinical Applications”

“Prostate cancer is a global public health problem, and it is the most common cancer in American men and the second cause for cancer-related death. Experimental evidence shows that prostate tissue possesses cannabinoid receptors and their stimulation results in anti-androgenic effects. To review currently relevant findings related to effects of cannabinoid receptors in prostate cancer. PubMed search utilizing the terms “cannabis,” “cannabinoids,” “prostate cancer,” and “cancer pain management,” giving preference to most recent publications was done.”

“Articles identified were screened for their relevance to the field of prostate cancer and interest to both urologist and pain specialists.”

“Prostate cancer cells possess increased expression of both cannabinoid 1 and 2 receptors, and stimulation of these results in decrease in cell viability, increased apoptosis, and decreased androgen receptor expression and prostate-specific antigen excretion. It would be of interest to conduct clinical studies utilizing cannabinoids for patients with metastatic prostate cancer, taking advantage not only of its beneficial effects on prostate cancer but also of their analgesic properties for bone metastatic cancer pain.”

I am moving to Portland, Oregon in the Fall of 2017 & am looking for an opportunity to contribute to the success of the Cannabis revolution that I helped to start with my 1969 "Cultivators Handbook of Marijuana", written in Eugene, Oregon and self-published with the indispensable help of the Eugene Augur news collective . I have a few new Cannabis & Coca-related ideas that are pretty revolutionary and as part of a team of good people I am confident that we can shake things up a little in a positive way. I am especially interested in working with companies and/or organizations that want to help motivate Seniors to get past any fears they may have regarding Cannabis and take advantage of the tremendous health benefits of this simple, powerful natural source of treatment and healing.
