An enlightening conversation with Cannabis luminaries (scientists, nurses, cultivators, activists and patients) about how Cannabis can alleviate symptoms from Cancer. After an 80-year prohibition on this medicinal plant, scientists and researchers are finally able to study the plant and its medicinal properties. Anecdotal evidence has been accruing for at least 10,000 years. AIDS patients were the first to benefit from loosened state regulations as various states recognized that "medical marijuana" was helping to alleviate symptoms of nausea, loss of appetite and pain. Now, cancer patients seeking relief from symptoms, are finding it with Cannabis.
This is a segment from "Cannabis the Story," an educational series five years in the making from Crystal Pyramid Productions under its Nectarball brand.
