Rick Simpson, a Canadian and founder of Phoenix Tears, was among the first in the world to extract cannabis oil with the purpose of treating cancer. He claimed that he could use cannabis successfully to cure many. According to Rick Simpson, it is high time that patients suffering from cancer take resort to cannabis extract instead of going in for radiation or chemotherapy which is painful. Mr.Simpson is in the forefront of the Legalizing Marijuana Campaign. He feels that although herbal drugs are cheap, patients are being denied the right to the curative properties of marijuana. Moreso, as governments are in the hand of the large pharmaceutical companies, the use of marijuana extract continues to remains limited. The Canadian emphasized that properties of marijuana could empower individuals to treat their ailments on their own. He stressed on the fact that decriminalizing marijuana is easier to attain in India as it is considered as the homeland of cannabis.

Vaurora supported Mr. Simpson by stating that governments should not enjoy the right to tell people what they should consume and what they cannot. He added that the governments allow companies to sell tobacco and alcohol which have been proven to be more harmful than marijuana. He drove his logic by including that marijuana is not addictive and neither is it associated with any adverse effects.

Recent findings have revealed that use of marijuana can prove helpful to patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. This primer elucidates how the use of marijuana can fight the inflammation of joints and alleviate pain. It has been estimated that more than 31 million Americans are suffering from arthritis today where the two common forms are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Arthritis is a medical condition which affects the joints causing unbearable pain, swelling and limits the mobility.

Relief from rheumatoid arthritis :

In the recent research conducted by experts, it has been discovered that cannabis based therapies have been effective in treating arthritis. The analgesic property in cannabis heals the extremely painful condition bringing relief to the patients. It is surprising to note that the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabis were known even in 2000 B.C. Evidence of this has been found in Chinese texts. Further supporting the evidence, a recent survey shows that smoking the weed regularly can calm the arthritis pain. Anti-inflammatory effects have been found in the substance.

Healing properties of cannabis :

Moreover, health experts today believe that cannabis can reduce a patient’s reliance on pharmaceutical drugs, mostly the painkillers. After the medical community has expressed a strong interest in cannabis, few well-known pharmaceutical companies are trying to capitalize on the healing properties of cannabis. They are creating products which are cannabis-based. Interestingly, a recent journal on marijuana published that marijuana fights the inflammation of the joints by activating the CB2 receptors. The chemical which activates the CB2 receptors can suppress the inflammatory molecules involved in causing rheumatoid arthritis.

How marijuana works :

The immune-modulation properties in cannabis also helps to combat the painful rheumatoid arthritis. The immuno-modulatory properties of sterols and sterolins( which are groups of fats) have been found to be good alternatives to the conventional treatments of rheumatoid arthritis. Pre-clinical data has also revealed that cannabinoids moderate the progression rate of the painful medical condition. Among all the chemicals which are present in sweet leaf marijuana,delta-9-tetrahydrocanabinol or THC combines with the receptors in in the brain and creates an analgesic effect which brings respite from chronic pain. Thus, we can conclude that cannabis can be an effective potential therapy for those who are suffering from this long-term, degenerative disease.
