After Six Days Starting Cannabis Oil, This Girl’s Leukemia Went Into Remission!

7-year old Mykayla Comstock was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia 3 years ago. Her parents tried cannabis oil therapy and claim that it saved her life, but the FDA still doesn’t approve this method.

3 years ago, Mykayla began experiencing symptoms such as coughing, night sweats, nausea, fever and skin rashes. Her parents thought it was a simple case of strep throat, but they were shocked to learn that she was suffering from cancer. A second doctor was able to find a tumor in her chest which pressed on her organs, and after a spinal tap and bone marrow biopsy, she was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia and immediately put on chemotherapy.

In order to reduce the side-effects of chemo, her mother, Erin, started giving Mykayla cannabis oil in either pill form or as a brownie. Under Oregon law, symptoms of cancer and side-effects of chemotherapy in children can be treated with medical marijuana with a parental consent and doctor’s approval. Mykayla’s father Jesse is now concerned about the long-term effects of cannabis, but her mother claims that the plant saved her daughter’s life.

 According to the National Institute of Health, several studies have confirmed the efficiency of cannabis in treating cancer and the side-effects of chemotherapy. Cannabis has also been able to kill cancer cells in lab studies, but it’s still not recognized as a cancer cure. The FDA has even approved the use of two cannabinoids for treatment of chemotherapy side-effects, but still hasn’t approved cannabis as a viable cancer treatment.

The American Cancer Society recognizes the necessity “for better and more effective therapies that can overcome the often debilitating side effects of cancer and its treatment, while supporting the need for more scientific research on cannabinoids. The Society also believes that the classification of marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance by the US Drug Enforcement Administration imposes numerous conditions on researchers and deters scientific study of cannabinoids. Federal officials should examine options consistent with federal law for enabling more scientific study on marijuana.”

Whether or not the plant was responsible for Mykayla’s miraculous recovery, the cannabis treatment has certainly proven effective in several studies, which makes you wonder why the pharmaceutical industry doesn’t recognize it.
