Cannabis Science Presents Newest Photographs From 3rd Cancer Patient That Show Cancer Tumors Dying and Areas That Are Now Pain Free
DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 30, 2012 - Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTCBB:CBIS.OB) a pioneering U.S. biotech company developing pharmaceutical cannabis (marijuana) products, is pleased to share new photographs from this cancer patient with severe squamous cell carcinoma. These pictures clearly show that this patient, with previously treatment-resistant tumors, continues to make obvious improvement. The tumors appear to be dying and then healing after treatment with cannabis-based extracts.
Cannabis Science has been working closely with this patient who has multiple squamous cell carcinoma tumors on his head. The latest pictures indicate that this patient is making dramatic improvement using cannabis-extract topical therapy under scientific guidance from Cannabis Science.
In this pictorial sequence, you can see the tumors healing, and scabbing over. The holes, like a “bowling ball finger hole”, are now filled and scabbing over as healing appears to continue. In another set of images, tumor mass continues to degrade. The patient has also informed Cannabis Science that while using cannabis extracts he has had a sufficient reduction in pain as healing progresses.
Position A: The arrow in Figure 1 points to what was the “bowling ball finger hole” that went down to the skull and was obvious prior to any type treatment. Figure A2 shows that in just the few days since our last update, the scabbed over hole has filled in and is almost totally healed. This lesion is now totally pain free.
Position B: The arrow in Figure B1, B2, and B3 point to an orientation position. These three sequential photographs show the tumor receding from this point as tumor mass continues to degrade. A doctor who felt this tumor commented that it appears to be detached and ready to fall off. Friends and family are amazed at the rapid progress.
Position C: This tumor, after becoming open and bloody in photo 2, is now scabbed over and pain free in photo 3.
