Is Cannabis Oil a harmful drug or a beneficial medicine? The Hibiscus Coast has strong opinions

Is Cannabis Oil a harmful drug or a beneficial medicine?

An interesting discussion took place on the Hibiscus Coast Seconds Facebook group recently regarding the use of Cannabis Oil.
Although the private use of the oil is still illegal in South Africa, the opinions on the thread were mostly in favour of using the oil for medical reasons.

Valda Rousseau said : “I was so desperate tried every product i could for five years now . I had like a ruff patch on my face and nose . Everyone said its the sun “bla bla” it cant go away . I bought cannabis oil and put it on the spots for about a month and … it’s gone !!!! It really worked. I didn’t drink it or smoke it just put it like that on the spot.”

Ralph Margo :” My step sister had a lump in her breast. After going for chemo there was no improvement. After using cannabis oil the lump shrank to under half a cm in 3 weeks.
My father is also fighting cancer at the moment. Almost a year ago he was given a year to live. He is fighting hard and going for chemo and also using oil and he credits the oil as the main reason that he is winning his fight.”

Alan Watts : “Alcohol has caused more deaths and misery than cannabis has or ever will. Fact.”

Rudi Van Wyk : “I suffer glaucoma and if i use the oil or even the tea my eyes are instantly better. I do believe in this. If you asked me 5 years ago i would say its drugs because that is what we were told… but its been tested and tried by too many people including myself.”

Suzanne Grobler : “In general wr are really poorly informed about cannabis oil in sa. There are various strains and types. Ones high in CBD (cannabidiol) and others high in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) . The cbd doesn’t give you a “high” but the THC can. After many years of crossbreading to get the highest thc concentration alot of the strains have almost none of thw CBD. CBD can counteract the high given by THC. The body has various receptors that are triggered by the various canabidoids. I know people who are treating all sorts of things with various strains. Friends opting for the oil after battling with chemo. Friends living a victorious life with the oil after being diagnosed with lupus. Friends with epilepsy and parkinsons who use the oil. Basically i think its a beneficial herb that must be studied more thoroughly in order to see which strains benefit certain medical conditions, people must be aware of the “snake oil salesman” who doesn’t know which strain he had what it cures and how concentrated the solution.”

Liandie Mulder : “Cannabis cures cancer and is illegal, cigarettes causes cancer yet it is legal… explain that…”

Barry Fritz : “my friend had brain tumour inoperable , he has taken it for 6 months now and latest scan shows tumour is gone”

There were members who showed some concern regarding the use of the oil, some were concerned that the legalizing of the herb would just encourage the private use for non-medical reasons. People retorted that they believe that alcohol and Cigarettes have far worse health implications than Marijuana and is legal.

Gavin Reid certainly doesn’t help Basals skin cancer have tried it for a long time. has been scientifically proven to cause serious and PERMANENT brain damage.

Nadine Brits says ” the oil does not heal you it only heals you’re mind to take the pain away for a few min.and I would say make it legal.its the one drug that you get locked up for but the one that has never killed anyone.”

    My brother-in-law has Destonia and after a stroke it got worse. He used Cannabis oil and it did not work at all. Only increased his anxiety.

      If you believe all the propaganda spread by users and their affiliates you need to get up to date and educate yourself with scientific facts.

      I have more than enough scientific knowledge on the subject. More than enough- MORE than enough. I know a lot about the plant, from seed to the finished product. I know and understand the process and I understand it’s components and what it consists of. Who wouldn’t want to know everything about such an amazing, beneficial plant that mother nature has provided the earth with.
      The proof is in the pudding. I’m sorry but there are MORE than enough testimonies on the benefits and it’s ability to heal disease and take away pain. I’ve seen and felt it cure.

      No “non biased” study will EVER change my opinion that it IS a healing plant. Sounds like you doubt that – so please do more research for your own benefit.
      Aside from the huge medicinial benefits, Hemp can replace anything and everything plastic. Hemp can shelter you, clothe you, you can make paper out of hemp. So if you aren’t seeing the bigger picture here, then theres something up. There are many ways to gain it’s benefits, you DON’T have to smoke it, you DON’T have to get high. CBD and THC do two different things.
      This plant is all round beneficial…. The benefits WAY out number any risks you can try list.

    “They must find it difficult…Those who have taken authority as the truth, rather than truth as the authority.” Massey.. I am So to Say illegally alive rather than legally dead Thanks to Medical Grade Cannabis Oil, Cured of inoperable brain tumors, stopped the seemingly endless seizures and lowered my blood pressure. There are so many documented cases of people curing cancer alone using cannabis not to mention the other debilitating diseases/conditions that are highly treatable using all natural cannabis and there are many many more success stories out there but we don’t hear about it because those ppl fear the authorities and risk loosing their children and jobs because of it’s Legal Status. To all the naysayers out there i urge you to get your heads out your asses and do the the research instead of buying into the BS that the state and it’s corporate overlords are pedaling. Fact is cannabis has had over 4000 years of use among many cultures and has only been demonized for the last 90 years or so to create racial tension, protect the cotton, paper, energy, building and pharmaceutical cartels. There has never been a death in history from the use of cannabis unless you count all the people that been Hanged till dead using rope made from hemp.
