    Do your research, rick has. He has tons of testimonials to prove how it helps. Cannabis is not an addictive drug since there is no physical withdrawl on the body.

  2. Patrick S says:

    Ever hear of PubMed? It’s like Google for medical journals and research papers.

    If evidence supports using cannabinoids to cure cancer*, the evidence is on And evidence does support using cannabinoids to destroy tumors without affecting healthy surrounding tissue.

    *This is not a big secret in the medical community, but the medical community is run by lawyers, not doctors anymore.

    LOL!!! You two “skeptics” certainly devolved into a pair of idiots with a podcast and .org website in the end and could not possibly have done anything like research . Try starting with the “Endo-Cannabinoid System”, and get back to us in 6 months or so.

    LOL who listens to this shit? Two morons talking about a subjects they know nothing about… Barely able to read… Making feeble minded jokes? Also, have to comment on this, you trust a 300 billion dollar a year cancer treatment industry to cure cancer? If you think this, you should be the last person to have a show called Reality Check. You can’t even repeat something you read in a study, CB1 and CB2 are RECEPTORS!!! Cannabis has more than 600 active substances in it… Please do some reserach if u dont want to sound like a retard on your podcast. Lets import some chineze people…
