Through years of smoking it? Good news if true.... have to say. Cancer is a blight on humanity. Anything that assists sufferers is most welcome
Sadly no, its through a THC free compound refined from the Cannibis.

There have been certain breakthroughs like this about cancer treatment in the last few years and have all disappered into nothing. Is big Pharma pushing these treatments away?

And you wonder why those big friendly pharma lobby the past 40 years to make it illegal and keep it illegal.... How much profit do they stand to loose now when people can cure themselves of cancer and an infinite amount of other ailments for free?

Even if its not free (refined) the certainly cannot patent anything.

Shouldnt the cancer rates in Holland in some way reflect this finding?
Flouride & the most contaminated cannabis in the world anyone? Cannabis on the streets in Ireland is mixed with a mixture of toxic materials to bulk it up. Only a tiny % of people in Netherlands actually consume cannabis... Smoking it is not the way to go either.... Other means of consumption are much better, eating, vaping etc... Also Netherlands has a huge mix of cultures with huge differences in origins.

Probably not. Dutch consumption rates of cannabis are actually lower than most other European countries. When something isn't illegal, it looses some of it's dangerous edgy appeal.

This has been known for sometime, but now at least it has been proven by science...

There was a plant in Cork, Cara Partners, that used to squeeze it and turn into powder for export.....

Dunno if they are still there.
