Landon Riddle, a young boy at the age of 3, was diagnosed with leukemia (a malignant progressive disease in which the bone marrow and other blood-forming organs produce increased numbers of immature or abnormal leukocytes), and was told by his doctors that he only had an 8-10% chance of living for more than a day or two.
“His whole chest was full of leukemia tumors, which is why he couldn’t breathe. They started him on chemo, but told us that he probably wasn’t going to make it,” his mother, Sierra Riddle said.
After 2 months of administering chemotherapy, Landon became sick and would refuse to eat. According to his mother, he would vomit up to 50 times a day, and the doctors eventually lost hope, seeing no other solution than chemotherapy. Then one day, Landon’s grandmother suggested that they look into cannabis oil treatment instead.
“We discussed all of our concerns with his medical team in Utah and watched Landon continue to suffer and wither away as he piled on drug after drug. Then my mother came across cannabis oil online,” Riddle told RYOT.
The family then left the state of Utah for Colorado, where cannabis oil treatment was legal. In a matter of few days, Landon began vomiting less and less each day and finally began to eat.
“Our hearts were filled with joy that cannabis brought back the smile to Landon’s face. Landon started getting better and better! It was as if a miracle had happened! He was smiling again and started to eat again!” Sierra wrote on her blog during his treatment.
“It is atrocious that anyone on the planet would be charged for choosing cannabis over pharmaceuticals. My heart goes out to Adam Koessler and Rumor Rose, along with uncountable other families that are affected by cannabis prohibition. Get ready for the fight of your life.
Having a sick child is a battle in itself, but making this choice is a whole new world. You’re going to need thick skin, intuition, and a solid team. Don’t waste time making sure every other pharmaceutical does more harm than good. If it feels wrong in your gut, it’s probably wrong,” she added.
Now, Landon’s cancer is in remission owing to cannabis oil above all.
What is cannabis oil?
Cannabis oil is a thick, sticky, resinous substance made up of cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, which is extracted from the cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica).
Cannabis oil is a cannabis based product obtained by separating the resins from cannabis flowers using a solvent extraction process. Cannabis oil is also known as marijuana oil, Rick Simpson Oil (RSO), full extract cannabis oil (FECO), hash oil, dabs, shatter, or wax.
Cannabis oil is the most potent of three main cannabis products, which are the actual cannabis flower (marijuana), resin (hashish), and oil (cannabis oil). Cannabis oil is the most concentrated form of the three main cannabis products. That is what makes cannabis oil the most potent agent.
Cannabis oil produced and sold by “dealers” can have many contaminants and many times will have minimal amounts or no THC or CBD in them at all. Most of the time, cannabis oil that is available on the street should be avoided for medicinal uses such as treating cancer.
It’s always better to make your own oil or to have someone you trust make your oil. This helps assure that very pure, high quality oil will be obtained. If you know who made your oil, you can better know what you are getting in your oil as well.
High quality cannabis oil can be used in many ways medicinally and can be used for many different conditions. Cannabis oil can be orally ingested, vaporized into the lungs, used as suppository or applied topically. You can also mix your oil with creams or salves for beauty treatments and other external uses.
Hundreds of studies, along with anecdotal evidence, suggest that cannabis oil may help in the treatment of a wide range of medical conditions. Some of the conditions the “miracle” cannabis oil has been used for include:cancer, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, gout, pain relief, glaucoma, opioid dependence, treatment of alcohol abuse, epilepsy, psoriasis, anorexia, asthma, adrenal disease, inflammatory bowel disease, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, pain, migraines, Dravet syndrome, Doose syndrome, Multiple sclerosis.
Cannabis oil also possesses precious antioxidant properties. This property makes cannabis oil useful in the treatment and prevention of wide variety of diseases, such as ischemic, age-related inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
Cannabis oil may also have use as a neuro-protectant for such things like limiting neurological damage following a stroke or head trauma. It can also be used in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.
Based on history, cannabis is believed to have originated from the region of Central Asia. Cannabis is one of the oldest plant medicines known to man. It is difficult to trace the beginnings of cannabis’ use by humans because it was cultivated and consumed long before the appearance of writing.
According to some archeological discoveries, cannabis has been known in China since the Neolithic period, around 4,000 BC.
