Nutrients Essential for Integrity of Cannabis Therapeutics – Dennis Hill

This is supplemental material from Dennis Hill, building off his earlier work describing how Cannabinoids kill cancer.

Omega-3 is the precursor to our endocannabinoids.
We find therapeutic cannabinoids in two places; first in the body’s own endocannabinoid system (ECS), second, phytocannabinoids in the cannabis plant. The phytocannabinoids and the endocannabinoids have the same functions, but are somewhat different in structure. So it is natural for phytocannabinoids to support the ECS. When the ECS is stressed it cannot cover the demands of the immune system, leading to breakdown and disease.
For the body to benefit from phytocannabinoids the ECS must have optimal integrity. The single most important nutrient to provide that integrity is the Omega-3 fatty acid. Omega-3 is the precursor for the body’s synthesis of the endocannabinoids; this is our first line of defense. Omega-3 is also the essential metabolite in the cannabis receptor system. No Omega-3; no receptors. If response to treatment is weak, Omega-3 may be what is needed.
Vitamin K2 triggers stress-activated ischemic cell death in cancer cells.
Cancer cells grow rapidly and use glucose at a high rate. Vitamin K stimulates oxidative stress that kills the cancer cell, but no effect on normal cells. K2 also blocks new blood vessels formation shutting down metastatic spread.
The risk for cancer is significantly reduced in those with higher blood levels of vitamin D3.
Numerous scientific studies have shown that low levels of vitamin D are associated with a higher death rate from all causes. Recent research shows that vitamin D3 actually kills cancer cells, and reduces cancer incidence by about half.
Curcumin stops uncontrolled inflammation, inhibits cancer metastasis, and triggers cell death in cancer cells. 
PSA is an indicator of inflammation, not of cancer. While cancer is inflammatory, many other things can get you an elevated PSA; like urinary infection, riding your bike, or sex. Beyond the secondary effect of curcumin as an anti-inflammatory, is its primary role as anti-proliferative. Unfortunately, curcumin is resistant to absorption into the body tissues. Best to use optimized curcumin.
