Cannabis for kids: Israel pioneers pediatric pot


Yaniv Eshed has a 9 year old son, Aviel. He is being treated for bone marrow cancer at Sheba Medical Center, the largest hospital in Israel. Yaniv Eshed was told of the benefits by other parents at the hospital he wishes he had learned about medical marijuana before Aviel was already six months into his chemotherapy treatment. “I was not aware like I am aware now,” Eshed says “If someone told me at the beginning that there was this option of cannabis, I think I could have saved him a lot of months of pain.” Medical cannabis has been gaining ground as a valid therapy. It offers relief to children suffering with cancer, it has been confirmed to soothe severe pain, increase the appetite, stop vomiting and ease insomnia where other common medications do not.

Twenty years ago, Raphael Mechoulam an Israeli scientist was the first to discover that giving cannabis oil to kids with cancer resulted in easing their physical and emotional pain. Israel now allows cannabis treatment to children and adults in medical institutions, this includes government-run hospitals and nursing homes. Medical marijuana is estimated to be a $40 million industry in Israel. Research in Israel has assisted America’s own medical marijuana business, which just this year is expected to be worth more than $2 billion. Doctors in the United States and all over the world continue to questions the efficiency of medical marijuana but time and time again we are getting positive feedback when it had been used. In the U.S. medical marijuana legality is determined on the state level but it’s legal nationally in Israel. Israel’s largest medical cannabis supplier is a company called Tikun Olam and was started by businessman Tsachi Cohen in 2006 as a charitable, private company aimed at delivering marijuana to sick patients for free. Cohen received the first license to grow marijuana from the Israeli Ministry of Health in 2007.

For the rest of the story:


  1. My Story . . . .
    As a natural born skeptic, I spent countless time and energy researching all the available treatment options aside from what my oncologist recommended. I was DETERMINED to cure my cancer, and knew there was something out there after witnessing a number of people who not only survived, but thrived and went on to live fulfilling lives cancer-free. In addition to reading about Rick Simpson Oil, and watching the Run From the Cure video, I also spoke with people who had actually used the oil, and it was shocking to hear one after another how effective this medicine really was. I just couldn’t believe there was a cure out there and how wrong it was that this information is not being shared with the public!

    Treatment Regimine:
    I have a pretty big tolerance for marijuana, so I started off with a full grain of rice sized amount of oil instead of a half grain. I gradually increased the dosage every night until I reached a full gram each night. The standard protocol for Rick Simpson Oil is ingesting a total of 60 grams over the course of 2-3 months, but I had 70 grams in total for safe measure. I used the excess as a topical skin care treatment, attacking the visible brown spots on my face and neck.

    3 months later, my cancer was in full remission. Within 4 months, I am cancer-free and officially received a clean bill of health from my doctors. What they don’t know is that the majority of my treatment was using the Rick Simpson Oil. I did use some of the medication they prescribed, but it was in combination with the oil.

    I am elated I want to continue sharing with people who are experiencing what I went through that there is absolutely hope and a cure out there. They just need to be proactive and aggressive with treatment, not wait until it is too late. Get your medication at Phoenix Tears via Email:

  2. I am so grateful to Rick for providing me with Hemp oil here in the United State of America. I was diagnose with breast cancer 3 years ago, and ever since i have done a lot of Chemo and Radiation that have not helped me, but only damaged my immune system and render it weak and helpless. I came across the Phoenix Tears and i have read about the Rick Simpson Hemp oil a lot and saw that he could provide me with Hemp Oil here in the State, i contact him
