We stumbled upon this news a couple weeks back regarding Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTCBB:CBIS.OB) reported the continuing successful progress by two patients who have been topically self-administering Cannabis Science extracts for Squamous Cell Carcinoma Cancer and Skin Cancer.
According to their earlier press releases, these patients have photo-documented dramatic results that the Company will release to the public once treatment is completed and has been properly vetted by clinical biopsy. The Company, in conjunction with several Colorado-licensed dispensaries and physicians, consults with a number of cancer patients who are seeking to inform themselves of the current peer-reviewed scientific literature, regarding modern and historical use of cannabis preparations for treating cancers so that they can make informed decisions regarding their self-directed cancer treatment.
Cannabis has an outstanding safety profile as determined in 1988 by Federal Administrative Law Judge Francis Young who recommended cannabis be removed from Schedule I. The refusal of the DEA to follow this recommendation has resulted in 16 states allowing some form of medical marijuana access for their citizens. Numerous other states are moving in this direction. Consequently, patients in states with medical marijuana laws are able to make an informed decisions to try various state-legal cannabis preparations and to determine what is most effective for their particular condition. As a result, there is an unprecedented accumulation of "anecdotal" data.
Cannabis Science went on to mention that it's making cannabis-based medicines available to the public as rapidly as possible. The Company is taking multiple approaches to accomplishing this aim in the United States. The science of cannabinoids has exploded over the past decade, laying the scientific foundation for the many medicinal uses of this unique plant. Cannabinoids are a class of biologically active compounds produced by all vertebrates (endocannabinoids) the Cannabis plant (phytocannabinoids), and more recently patentable synthetic compounds produced by chemists. Today's modern peer-reviewed science supports the many historical uses that were discovered over thousands of years of medicinal use by herbalists.
Also, the Company has already released its first two Cannabis Science Brand Formulations, Cannabis Science CT-1 and Cannabis Science MT-1. Both are now available at both Cannabis Therapeutics and Marisol Therapeutics exclusively for Colorado State licensed medical marijuana patients.
Cannabis Science MT-1: Produced by Marisol Therapeutics: A family-owned shop, Marisol Therapeutics was founded to assist medical marijuana patients in obtaining medical marijuana in Colorado. They believe patients have the right to safe, confidential, quality medical marijuana and products. They recommend medical marijuana from their own experience with unrelenting and previously untreatable pain. "We understand, we care, we want you to heal." Marisal Therapeutics has produced a custom blend that is derived from their proprietary strains that were developed over 30 years by a Native American Vietnam veteran in order to address his medical needs. Cannabis Science CT-1 has been analyzed and shown to be free of insecticides and molds. The product is produced in soil under organic roof conditions.
