We are starting a new category of blog posts, which will be dedicated to documentaries, movies, newspaper articles, etc. that deal with cannabis and its derivatives. Hope you like it!
Today, we'll discuss the documentary "Weed the People:
A report on cannabis as a treatment
Weed The People is a reportage, which deals with the subject of cannabis and its usefulness in the treatment of childhood cancer .
We then follow the struggle of patients and their loved ones. Of course, the patients use marijuana for medical purposes, so that it improves their daily life.
This documentary was directed by Abby Epstein, and focuses mainly on the struggle of five sick children and their daily lives, with the testimony of their loved ones.
We can then follow their progress, but also their difficulties, whether it is in terms of pain to manage, side effects that they can sometimes feel, and especially the concern to get the right products.
We will then discover that to have good cannabis, it is not always simple... That is why the parents of these children are ready to spend astronomical sums of money, in the hope of relieving their pain and prolonging their life.
A documentary in favor of cannabis
Throughout the film, you will hear many arguments in favor of using cannabis oil as a cancer treatment.
Of course, on most of the patients in the story, the results of cannabis treatment appear miraculous, which may still raise questions about its limited use.
Throughout this documentary, we hope to bring an image of hope to all viewers, and hope that this subject will be taken seriously by more health professionals and researchers.
The history of childhood cancers
In Weed the people, we follow the story of 5 children with cancer:
- Chico Ryder, atteint de Rhabdomyosarcome
- Sophie Ryan, atteinte de Gliome
- Adrien Peterson, atteint de DIPG/ Tumeur au cerveau
- Cécilia Von Harz, atteinte de Tumeur Wilms
- AJ Kephart, atteint d’ostéosarcome
We follow their progress in the disease, their experience, but also that of their parents. Moreover, this documentary makes testify these last ones, who had to take a decision to fight against the diseases which affect their children. This decision is the use of cannabis oil, although it has a price.
We also learn that THC is not sufficient in the treatment of cancers, but that it must be coupled with CBD, in order to create what is called an entourage effect, and to avoid the side effects that tetrahydrocannabinol can cause.
Conclusion of Weed the People
Weed the People is a documentary with a lot of feelings, tears, hope, looks and humanity.
Malgré son parti pris sur la question de l’utilisation de la weed et sur les responsables de cette recherche du cannabis dans le traitement de cancer, Abby Epstein soulève de très bonnes questions concernant l’état de la recherche sur l Amérique.
All in all, Weed The People is definitely worth watching. If you are interested in the subject of marijuana in the treatment of pathologies, and the politics that govern its authorization for use, then don't miss this wonderful documentary!
