Scientists have uncovered the potential for coconut oil to aid cannabis in the fight against cancer! And cannabis infused coconut oil may just be the solution.
Fact: There are oils that will give you that crispy crunch fried delight that too many Americans have come to crave—along with a side of heart attack and cancer-causing acrylamides. These fall into the “refined, over-processed and unhealthy” category.
An Even Better Fact: Then there are oils that that are much better for your health… heart-friendly oils from lighter, natural, unrefined and pure sources. Olive oil comes quickly to mind. The right balance of olive oil even helps us absorb nutrients from other food sources more effectively. And then there is one, particular oil that defies classification. That oil—that superfood—is coconut oil. And it possesses such unparalleled health benefits that…
- Entire island nations escaped Western disease for generations by consuming only coconut oil—until it was falsely vilified
- It beautifies and protects the skin—even against skin cancer!
- It contains a unique combination of fatty-acids with powerful medicinal properties—plus a specific healing compound that fights bacterial and viral infections!
If these three things alone were all the benefits coconut oil possessed, it would still be tremendously impressive—for an oil… a substance that most people don’t give a second thought to as it sits in their kitchen cupboard.
Well, let me pose a question that will have you thinking about oil in a whole new light… The next time you’re getting ready to cook dinner, would you rather reach for any old oil… or would you rather serve your family an oil that is not only heart-friendly, but is on the cutting-edge of current medical research because its healing potential is just that amazing? It’s true. The fact is this: coconut oil and another all natural botanical that has been even more vilified and misunderstood for years – cannabis – are both at the forefront of research into the cure for one of Western civilization’s health nightmares … cancer.
Cannabis and Coconut Oil—The Great Healers
Coconut oil—a saturated fat—is chock-full of health-promoting properties and is in no way responsible for high cholesterol, obesity, heart disease and the bad effects generations of Americans have been falsely led to believe. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. We’re only beginning to uncover the amazing health benefits that earned this superfood the title, “The Cure for All Illness.” And you know what else… these health benefits are evidence-based. In addition to the three I listed earlier, there is research to support thatcoconut makes you less hungry… contains ketones that reduce seizures… improves blood cholesterol… burns fat… and boosts brain function in Alzheimer’s patients. But these aren’t the only reasons that coconut oil is on the forefront of cutting-edge research once again.
Scientists have uncovered the potential for coconut oil to aid cannabis in the fight against cancer!
Like the coconut, humans have cultivated and used the flowering tops of the female cannabis plant — known as marijuana — as a healing herb since the beginning of history. But in modern times the plant has been criminalized, and its organic compounds (cannabinoids) classified as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. It’s absurd that based on this classification, marijuana is seen as more of a threat than heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, anabolic steroids, and prescription pain killers — the rampant abuse of which has become commonplace!
You can’t help but wonder if the vilification of marijuana is another plot to deceive the American public, just as generations of Americans were deceived about the oil we should have been consuming—and the oils we were consuming that were killing us!
But thankfully there is a strong and growing trend of acceptance of marijuana – related to the mounting scientific evidence that it may indeed contain powerful medicinal properties that we would be foolish to overlook. Joycelyn Elders, MD, former US Surgeon General, wrote the following in a Mar. 26, 2004 article titled “Myths About Medical Marijuana,” published in the Providence Journal:
“The evidence is overwhelming that marijuana can relieve certain types of pain, nausea, vomiting and other symptoms caused by such illnesses as multiple sclerosis, cancer and AIDS — or by the harsh drugs sometimes used to treat them. And it can do so with remarkable safety. Indeed, marijuana is less toxic than many of the drugs that physicians prescribe every day.”
But relieving pain and symptoms is just the tip of the iceberg! Medical marijuana has been shown to slow the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and moderate autoimmune disorders including multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis. And now researchers are looking at amplifying the healing potential of marijuana by pairing it with coconut oil!
Cannabis and Coconut Oil
Medical marijuana capsules infused in coconut oil are an alternative way to therapeutically use cannabis without having to inhale it through smoking. Infusing cannabis into coconut oil also allows for easy entry into the liver where it can be rapidly processed. Coconut oil is used because of its high amount of essential fatty acids which makes it a good binding agent for the cannabinoids. Couple this with its amazing health properties and you superpower the combination. Half of the fat in coconut oil is comprised of a fat that is not frequently found in nature, lauric acid. Lauric acid has been called a “miracle” ingredient due to its health promoting capabilities, which is evidenced by its presence in a mother’s milk. In fact, it can be found in only three dietary sources—small amounts in butterfat and larger amounts in palm kernel and coconut oil. In the body, lauric acid is converted to monolaurin, which is a potent antiviral, antibacterial and antiprotozoal substance. Because monolaurin is a monoglyceride, it can destroy lipid-coated viruses including measles, influenza, HIV, herpes and a number of pathogenic bacteria.
Testimony – A Success Story
While many remain suspicious of the therapeutic benefits of cannabis, Stan and Barb Rutner are convinced of its efficacy. This couple has stood in the face of cancer a number of times and survived to learn from their experiences.Barb had two bouts of breast cancer and Stan was diagnosed 20 years ago with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma which, after treatment, disappeared. However, in 2011, it returned. Cancerous nodes in his lungs were diagnosed and later he was told that the cancer was in his brain. The outlook was grim indeed.As he went through the harsh treatment of chemotherapy and radiation, Stan and his family wanted to find a natural solution that would help improve his quality of life and even prolong it. Hearing that cannabis was effective in helping with the pain and other effects of chemotherapy for cancer patients they were more than open to give it a try. According to Stan and Barb, medical cannabis was the golden ticket and …Click NEXT PAGE to continue reading the article on page 2…
