The Stan Rutner Story - Cannabis cures cancer

Stan and Barb Rutner are no strangers to cancer. The married couple, both in their 70s, have run into it before. It struck Stan in the lungs first.

But this time, they turned to a less invasive, more permanent treatment and solution—medical cannabis. CULTURE spoke with Stan, Barb, their daughter Corinne and her husband John about this intense and life changing experience with cannabis.

In addition to providing a soothing sense of comfort and bliss, they also facilitate in stimulating and nourishing the endocannabinoid system, which plays a significant role in a variety of physiological processes.

Cannabinoids are naturally occurring chemical compounds that promote homeostasis by interacting with specific receptors found in the human body. Thus far, two receptors have been determined – CB1 and CB2. This intricate system of cannabinoids, receptors and other binding substances manufactured in the brain is called the endocannabinoid system.
