Editorial Reviews

Could the chemicals found in marijuana prevent and even heal several deadly cancers? Discover the truth about this ancient medicine as world-renowned scientists in the field of cannabinoid research illustrate their truly mind-blowing discoveries. "What if Cannabis Cured Cancer" explains how we are all born with a form of marijuana already in our bodies, and when pot is consumed, the "endocannabinoids" inside us, along with any cannabinoids we ingest, fit together like a key in a lock. Thereby promoting the death of cancer cells without harming the body's healthy cells. A powerful and eye-opening film about the future of cannabis, and perhaps even the future of medicine. Narrated by Emmy-winning actor Peter Coyote. QUOTES: "What If Cannabis Cured Cancer summarizes the remarkable research findings of recent years about the cancer-protective effects of novel compounds in marijuana. Most medical doctors are not aware of this information and its implications for prevention and treatment. This documentary presents compelling evidence that our current policy on cannabis is counterproductive and foolish. An excellent film." -Andrew Weil, M.D. *** "A hugely important film." -Julie Holland, MD NYU School of Medicine *** "What If Cannabis Cured Cancer brings to light a host of recent findings that have potentially game-changing implications for the future of marijuana as a medicine. A must-see film." -Marijuana Policy Project Washington, DC *** SPECIAL BONUS: Puppet comedy short, "Kurt Cannabis Meets Connie Cancer", with the voices of Roseanne Barr and Malcolm McDowell. lenrichmondfilms

1 hour, narrated by Peter Coyote

While this position-paper film summarizes how and why cannabis became illegal, it goes beyond history to portray how cannabis works in the nervous system and, most importantly, research leads on its possible uses in treating a huge range of diseases.

After identifying the fact that the human nervous system has receptors for some of cannabis's plant chemicals, the film lists a huge number of healthy, normal human biological processes that are influenced by the naturally occurring endocannabinoids that our body produces. But when dysfunctions in this system happen, a large number of diseases can occur. In some cases, this dysfunction can be corrected and the diseases treated by stimulating these receptors with cannabis. If this begins to sound too scientific and confusing, What if Cannabis Cured Cancer? uses many helpful and clear graphics to clarify the ideas for the non-scientist.

While the title emphasizes cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, AIDS/HIV, menopausal cramps, schizophrenia, central nervous system diseases, and other illnesses make an appearance too. Current research is investigating these leads, and the ? mark in the title stresses that so far these are hot leads, not solidly established facts yet. As for why these leads are not being avidly followed, the DEA, politicians, Government agencies, and the pharmaceutical companies take their editorial lumps.

This film should be shown to civic groups and community organizations, church groups, voter groups, health organizations, and in secondary schools and universities.

This documentary blows you away with the truth about cannabis, as it has never been told before. Filled with amazing facts and testimonies from doctors, it is both eye opening and awe striking. All humans need to see this and understand the untapped medicinal value of cannabis. The fate of the future of medicine rests in removing cannabis from its insane position as a Schedule 1 drug.

As an old bat, cannabis was not much on my radar at all. (I saw prohibition to be destructive and wrongheaded, so I campaigned for others to have legal access to cannabis.) Then my husband was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer. Suddenly my ethics became intensely personal!

My husband faced his 'death sentence' with no hope. His oncologist offered a letter to allow medical marijuana and I encountered this DVD title, "What if Cannabis Cured Cancer" researching the subject online.

The DVD arrived weeks before promised with a personal compassionate email from the producer. It gave details that were easy to understand for the non-scientific person. The clear medical information created a whole transformation for an old couple and the added political and historic information was an enjoyable embellishment . The video gave us hope for under $20.00.

Everything you wanted to know about cannabis, the potential for cure, and much much more. Far from being a useless polemic, it answered our questions in a rich enjoyable format. Best purchase we ever made. Couldn't recommend it more highly.

What if Cannabis cured Cancer? If what it says is real people should listen! There are so many things cannabis is said to be good for. And curing cancer!
How many of us have lost loved ones? It should make us all furious that there is a cure or a treatment that can help people who are suffering get some comfort!
I myself don't partake of the herb but I sure would want some help if I was suffering from cancer and suffering from pain. This could help and the "money makers"
can't make money so they make it illegal??? We gotta wake up. Of course there are issues and good ones but really let's give ourselves a little credit. I don't want to start a soap box. Good day!

This film was amazing. Have seen lots of information about cannabis but this puts a lot of it in perspective. Hopefully people start realizing that besides using cannabis as a cure for so many illness' that it can be used for fuel, clothes, even building materials.

People are now making houses from cannabis. They are curing cancer with cannabis. They are feeding themselves with the most healthy food source on the planet, and it's all thanks to CANNABIS

I was impressed with the information presented. This film makes a strong case for the medicinal uses of cannabis and the safety of it. Very few people know about the research that has been done showing that it can be as effective and in some cases more effective than prescription drugs for pain, inflammation, nausea, cancer, and many other ailments. Because of the stronghold that the pharmaceutical industry has over medicine and doctors and the resistance to alternatives that they cannot patent and that people could easily grow/make themselves, most of the information about the health benefits of cannabis have been suppressed. This film is worth watching for anyone with an interest in taking charge of his or her health and a desire to use natural, traditional, health supportive modalities.
