Cannabis Kills Antibiotic-Resistant Staph

An Article in WebMD reports that researchers in Italy and the UK have tested 5 cannabinoids for use against MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), and discovered that all five kill the so-called "Superbug".

MRSA, or drug-resistant Staph, has become a major concern for hospitals and other health care institutions in recent years, theoretically because of over-use of antibiotics in clinical medicine. The interesting thing about the possible use of these cannabis ingredients is that they appear to kill bacteria in an entirely different manner than traditional antibiotics, thus offering a hope for a true end to such nightmare "super bugs".

The WebMD article goes on to note that while new antibacterials are urgently needed, only one new class thereof has been introduced in the last three decades.

We can only imagine the fun George Carlin would have had with this news story. RIP, George, RIP.

  1. Am Gracie Robert Norman from Utah and It is a privileged for me to share with you about a bountiful healing concerning my Colorectal cancer. i wouldn't have believed that i would someday share my survival from Colorectal cancer with anyone because cancer place a total misery to my life. I bless that faithful day i went online in search of help and i found my Mrs Ellen Bates which educated more about Rick Simpson great medication oil which I had to choice to but to give it a try: who helped me via his email to defeat cancer that had almost sucked life out of me with his cannabis oil which was as effective as he said it was. I will also like to use this medium to appreciate Rick and his team: for his care, support and of course his cannabis oil because ibwould have been history if not for Rick Simpson discovery which is the world greatest Hero of the 21 century. i am so happy that i could remain with my beloved daughter Juliet who would have been left alone in this world.
    Thanks you so much Sir and God will bless you more.
