Medical marijuana is gaining approval, but could it also be helpful for kids? Dr. William Courtney has seen it happen, and on Friday, told HuffPost Live host Alyona Minkovski about it. Saying that he was “quite a skeptic 5 or 6 years ago”, Dr. Courtney continued that his youngest patient was eight months old, and had a very massive centrally located inoperable brain tumor. The father of the children pushed for non-traditional treatment utilizing cannabis.
“They were putting cannabinoid oil on the pacifier of the baby two times a day, increasing the dose. And in two months, there was an intense reduction, enough that the pediatric oncologist permitted them to go ahead with not trying the traditional therapy.”
The tumor was also remarkably reduced after eight months of treatment.
Dr. Courtney has pointed out that the success of the cannabis method means that “this child, because of that, will not have the long-term side effects which would come from a very high dose of chemotherapy or radiation too. Currently, the child was called the miracle baby. I have to accept that this is also the perfect response that we should be insisting in frontline therapy for all of the children before they launch off on all medications which have horrific long-term side effects.”
In recent times, the Spanish International Medical Veritas Association (IMVA) and Dr. Robert Ramer, as well as Dr. Burkhard Hinz of the University of Rostock in Germany, have also acknowledged hemp oil as a cure for cancer.
This case is from 2008, and it is about a father that used marijuana to heal his young boy of cancer.
Unluckily, the child apparently decreased in the end. Here is a top comment on YouTube:
“He passed away last year, as the federal government in Montana took away marijuana dispensaries, so he had no access to the cannabis oil which had his cancer in remission anymore. This little boy died because of the government getting in the way. I have been regarding this story since it was released and it completely breaks my heart to know that the life of this little boy was taken away by unjust laws and crooked politicians. Please thumbs up to let other people know what the government has done.”
