Michelle Aldrich: Cancer Free!
Michelle thought she was just coming down with the flu, but the chest x-rays revealed much more – pneumonia, and a tumor. On January 12th, 2012, she was diagnosed with lung cancer.
Michelle has been a cannabis activist for over 40 years, so her course of action was certain, cannabis oil.
* Update from Michelle: “I am happy to report that the May 10th PET scan showed that there was no sign of cancer. The formal wording is ‘virtually complete resolution’.”
Michelle is a member of the San Francisco Medical Cannabis Task Force. She is on the Advisory Board for Patients Out of Time and, along with her husband Michael, are recipients of the High Times Lifetime Achievement Award.
Interview conducted at the Seventh National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics, April 27, 2012 – Tucson, AZ.

How Cannabis Cures cancer
Since 1974 studies have shown that cannabis has anti-tumor effects. The results of the 1974 study, reported in an Aug. 18, 1974, Washington Post newspaper feature, were that cannabis’s component, THC, “slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives by as much as 36 percent.” In 1975 an article in the Journal of the National cancer institute titled “Antineoplastic Activity of Cannabinoids,” they reported that “Lewis lung adenocarcinoma growth was retarded by the oral administration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinol (CBD). Mice treated for 20 consecutive days with THC and CBD had reduced primary tumor size.”
In 1998, a research team at Madrid’s Complutense University Led by Dr. Manuel Guzman discovered that THC can selectively induce programmed cell death in brain tumor cells without negatively impacting surrounding healthy cells. They reported in the March 2002 issue of “Nature Medicine” they had destroyed incurable brain cancer tumors in rats by injecting them with THC. And in 2007 even Harvard Researchers found that compounds in cannabis cut the growth of lung cancer. There is also an organization called The SETH Group that showed compounds in cannabis can stop the growth of human glioblastoma multiforma (GBM) brain cancer cells. The SETH Group says “No chemotherapy can match this nontoxic anti-cancer action.” Even last year in 2012 a pair of scientists at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco found THC stops metastasis in many kinds of aggressive cancer.
FRANKINCENSE FOR CANCER – PRE CLINICAL RESULTS
“… In this study, we demonstrated that a commercial source of frankincense oil can discriminate bladder cancer J82 cells from normal bladder urothelial UROtsa cells and suppress cancer cell viability. Based on gene expression analysis, frankincense oil activated several anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic pathways that might be responsible for frankincense oil-induced cell death in J82 cells.”
“…Frankincense oil can discriminate bladder cancer cells and normal urothelial cells in culture. The oil suppresses cell survival and induces apoptosis in cultured bladder cancer cells. Based on this preliminary observation, frankincense oil may represent an alternative intravesical therapy for bladder cancer, although more bladder cancer cell lines and animal models need to be used to confirm current observations.”
Boswellia sacra essential oil induces tumor cell-specific apoptosis and suppresses tumor aggressiveness in cultured human breast cancer cells
“…We have demonstrated that Boswellia sacra essential oil prepared from hydrodistillation has tumor cell-specific cytotoxicity in multiple cancer cell types. Consistent with anti-proliferative, pro-apoptotic, and anti-invasive activities in cultured breast cancer cells, Boswellia sacra essential oil is shown to induce tumor cell cytotoxicity in a drug resistant and metastasized breast cancer case. In addition to establishing standard procedures to produce essential oil with consistent chemical composition, safety and toxicity studies of the oil and pre-clinical validation of the in vitro results will be required. Moreover, formulation and standardization of clinical protocols to monitor cancer progression following Boswellia sacra essential oil administration are needed immediately for prospective human clinical trials.”
The Miguel Garcia Story
“Miguel Garcia is living with a rare skin disorder called Epidermolysis bullosa. This genetic disorder causes the skin to blister or flake off extremely easily. Miguel has fought everyday to live his life, and through that struggle he’s developed an inspiring perspective. This film was funded by the American Indian Health Services Clinic in Santa Barbara CA, who have aided Miguel throughout his life.
Miguel is an incredible person, and hopefully his story can help inspire others to live their life to the fullest.”

Cathy Jordan, ALS, on CPN
April, 2008 – Having survived Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) for 22 years using cannabis (marijuana) as medicine, Cathy Jordan of Florida explains how it works to keep her alive – as a neuroprotective, cough stimulation, and the “cottonmouth” effect that controls the excess saliva so dangerous to ALS patients. Cathy also cites proven efficacy for Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease, while predicting breakthroughs for Autism and Alzheimer’s.
This video was submitted to the Iowa Board of Pharmacy hearing in November of 2009, with 11 other patients from the Cannabis Patient Network. Hear and learn more at:http://CannabisPatientNetwork.com
Surviving ALS # 3 – with Dr. Bob Melamede
We flash foward to 2006 to learn from Robert Melamede, PhD, Biology Professor at the University of Colorado, exactly what marijuana does for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and other degenerative nerve diseases, like Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Dr. Melamede describes the unique role of the body’s own Endo-Cannabinoid system as a “homeostatic regulator” keeping numerous body systems in balance – including the immune, digestive, reproductive, cardio-vascular and neuromuscular systems.
Dr. Melamede sees the plant-based Cannabinoids in marijuana as a suppliment – to help the Endo-Cannabinoid system achive balance during biological,bio-chemical or other stresses,
“The use of Cannabis has a profound effect in helping to stop nerve degeneration and helping to restore functional nerves”.
He also recommends Hemp Oil, rich in Omega 3 & 6 EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids), to give the body the tools it needs to achive health.
Then, back to May of 2000 (14 years with ALS), at home in Parrish, Florida, Cathy Jordan demonstrates how Cannabis helps her to have a great quality of life, while she and her family enjoy her heated pool.

from 2004 Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics, hosted by Patients Out of Time:
*** PLEASE READ: Cannabis has the most healing effects for patients early in ALS disease progression. While it can be useful later, SMOKING ANYTHING CAN BE DANGEROUS IN ADVANCED CASES OF ALS, so check with your doctor if you have any concerns. This is what works for one person and is not intended to be medical advice. ***
Cerebral Palsy and Cannabis: Kathleen W. of MO..
Kathleen faces challenges daily that most of us couldn’t imagine and yet, she bubbles over with so much joy! Her Cerebral Palsy confines her to her wheelchair most of the time and profoundly limits the use of her hands and arms, even to feed herself. Perhaps most isolating is her difficulty communicating.
Kathleen has found that cannabis enables her to speak much more clearly. When she medicates with a few puffs before bed. The spasms in her arms and legs ease and she can sleep.
In the morning, not only does she awake refreshed from a good night’s sleep, but the clarity of her speech continues throughout the following day.
If only cannabis were legal in Missouri so that Kathleen and others like her could fullly experience a better quality of life without being treated like a criminal.

CULTURE EXCLUSIVE: Cannabis Cures Cancer – The Stan Rutner Story
Stan and Barb Rutner are no strangers to cancer. The married couple, both in their 70s, have run into it before. It struck Stan in the lungs first. Manifesting as a persistent cough, a doctor later revealed cancerous nodes in the lungs were the real culprits. As if that wasn’t enough of a blow, doctors later discovered worse news for Stan: brain cancer. Like before, the Rutners were able to successfully battle—and beat—cancer. But this time, they turned to a less invasive, more permanent treatment and solution—medical cannabis. CULTURE spoke with Stan, Barb, their daughter Corinne and her husband John about this intense and life changing experience with cannabis. http://ireadculture.com/2013/09/news/…
