Young Boy Given 48 Hours to Live Now Cancer Free After Taking Cannabis Oil

Three years ago Landon Riddle of Utah was diagnosed with Leukemia. His chest was full of tumors and his armpits and groin had swollen. The prognosis was grim: an 8-10% chance of living past the next 24 to 48 hours. Landon’s mother Sierra refused to accept his fate.

“It was the absolute most terrifying day of my life,” Riddle blogged. Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia or ALL is cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Landon was immediately started on chemo.

Riddle had to watch her son vomit up to 30 to 50 times a day. His appetite was gone. At his worst, Landon went on a 25 day food strike. It seemed like Landon’s time was near.

In January 2013, everything changed. “We discussed all of our concerns with his medical team in Utah and watched Landon continue to suffer and wither away as the piled on drug after drug,” Riddle told RYOT. “Then my mother came across cannabis oil online.” Sierra says Landon’s grandmother has always been against drug abuse, however, she found enough supporting evidence for medical marijuana. The Riddles knew that living in Utah at the time meant access to cannabis oil was impossible. Utah actually did legalise cannabis oil for children with epilepsy a year later with the passage of Charlee’s Law. This was not passed in time for Landon. Landon and his family became “cannabis refugees” fleeing to the state of Colorado.

Landon’s vomiting dropped from up to 50 times a day to 10 times a day. “Our hearts were filled with joy that cannabis brought back the smile to Landon’s face,” she blogged. “Landon started getting better and better! It was as if a miracle had happened! He was smiling again and started to eat again!” The chemotherapy left Landon battling with neuropathy, sometimes unable to walk.

Sierra Riddle was never charged for breaking the law. She worries about other parents that haven’t been as lucky as she has. “It is atrocious that anyone on the planet would be charged for choosing cannabis over pharmaceuticals,” Riddle said. “My heart goes out to Adam Koessler and Rumor Rose, along with uncountable other families that are affected by cannabis prohibition.”

Riddle wants to help other parents make the right decision for the welfare of their children. “Get ready for the fight of your life. Having a sick child is a battle in itself, but making this choice is a whole new world,” she said. “You’re going to need thick skin, intuition, and a solid team. Don’t waste time making sure every other pharmaceutical does more harm than good. If it feels wrong in your gut, it’s probably wrong.”

Landon’s cancer is currently in remission. Landon’s mother drives Landon from Utah to Colorado each month for his checkup. She has made it easy to make a difference for children like Landon with several projects. Her website offers addresses of John W. Hickenlooper, Michael F. Bennet, and Cory Gardner.

  2. Darren says:

    NiSSSSSSSSSSSe. People need to start realizing the politicians that are against medical cannabis use are having their pockets lined by the big pharma’s. I’ve always said if it weren’t for smoking pot, I would be on anti-depressants. I’ve been smoking for 40+ years. With no bad side effects.

    1. janelle says:

      So agree politicians really need to be put back into there place the politician should listen to the people there dictatorship is beyond the needs of humanity they are egocentric in the way they represent the people totally lost the plot unbelievable these attitudes exist I too have smoke for yrs I’ve used it for post natal depression and now in my later yrs I use it for pain and grand mal siezures suits me legal or not recently lost my mum to cancer her fight was for 4mths from diagnosis no medico could help her to watch her pain and stupid interventions was horrific and in my eyes unnecessary I ask about cannabis told by a specialist yes it would help but the system dosen’t support it

    2. pienkvien says:

      Darren : it’s a waste to smoke it… google for drinking it or taking its oil…

  3. God bless you Landon. You’ve got a second chance. Don’t waste it. Let’s get the word out people … big pharma is killing us all! Let’s not lose another child to this dreaded disease.

  4. Artsieladie says:

    #‎Awaken‬! ‪#‎Hemp‬ / ‪#‎Marijuana‬ is the ‪#‎WonderPlant‬ that can cure, fix, etc. so MANY health issues but it MUST BE stigmatised as bad, therefore, made/kept illegal because common sense tells us that if we eradicate the “causes” of disease, if we reverse and eliminate the symptoms, there would be NO PROFITS to be made like are being made currently by “treating symptoms”. As long as there are symptoms to treat, there are PROFITS to be made by Big Pharma, the medical field, the weight loss industry, AND the lawyers. Let’s not forget the lawyers with their greedy paws! ..And our elected officials who are “supposed to be” SERVING THE PEOPLE’S “BEST INTERESTS”? It’s a joke, only it’s NOT funny! By being kept illegal, government can CONTROL it for the purpose of making sure the greedy can still benefit. If The People were allowed to grow it and make the beneficial applications themselves, well, ALL the greedy fingers would be eliminated, cut out of the equation!

    It’s ALL about “PROFITS” for the big, greedy corporations/industries in this country. Example: “Cancer is a BILLION dollar INDUSTRY!” At the very top is Big Pharma. Sick people will seek medical treatment and then comes into play all the “prescription poisons” that are then used, which Big Pharma makes billions of dollars from them being used. Here we, The People, are constantly bombarded with: “Give to and for research for this disease/ailment or that”. It’s “please donate, please donate, please donate….” Then when the “paid for research” comes up with an unnatural, chemically made drug, we, The People, have to pay through the nose to use it too. We’re double whammied! Who benefits? Big Pharma, of course, and the medical field earns billions as well providing its services and treatment regiments.

    Then, who is feeding The People? Why, the food industry of course. So, the food industry plays its role by continually putting in our food all sorts of crap that “causes” illnesses and diseases, which then the sick people need to seek medical attention (costing them money) and then ultimately are prescribed drugs and treatments (costing more money). It is becoming increasingly more widely known that crap like: modified anything, highly processed foods/ingredients, hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated fats and oils, artificial food colorings, flavourings, and sweeteners, excess sugar, excess salt, MSG (monosodium glutamate), etc. are linked to/cause/contribute to all sorts of health issues, such as: diabetes, MS, learning disabilities, Autism, Alzheimer’s, and the list goes on. But STILL, it’s being allowed in our foods! The food industry is in obvious partnership with Big Pharma and the medical field by being a main, contributing factor in keeping The People sick.

    But we can’t forget or leave out how the billion dollar weight loss industry is also benefitting, making billions of dollars in profits by all the crap in our food as well meant to cause/contribute to people being overweight and obese. High fructose corn syrup, for example, stops the brain from knowing that enough food has been consumed. Therefore, a person ingesting this keeps craving more.

    ..And let’s not forget the attorneys with their fingers in this ‘huge pie’ on all fronts, including the “medical insurance scam industry”! ..And our wonderful politicians who are getting their pockets lined too. Who loses? We, The People, do and are.

    The People, ALL or at least the vast majority need to WAKE UP, get a grip on the dire situation, see the WHOLE picture. Then we, The People, NEED TO UNITE and together use OUR POWER “collectively” to demand for starters, the crap is removed from our food. When the food industry on the whole no longer has a “buying market” for their crap, they will have to either remove the crap or go out of business.

    The only language the greedy understands is “money” and “profits”. So we need to make it so IF these food companies want our money, then they need to sell us food that “we deem” fit to buy and eat, which is food without the aforementioned crap AND also NO “genetically modified” (GMO) foods either AND with CLEAR, CONCISE labeling, including whether our food has any GMOs in it. We, “the consumers”, The People with the purchasing power, have the RIGHT TO KNOW what exactly is IN “our food”.

    But this can only be accomplished if The People wake up, stick together ‘collectively’, and demand good, healthy foods! ..And if the food companies want “our money”, then they will have to comply with “our demands of quality foods” or go belly up. Very simple actually but VERY effective it would be. We have the power but as long as we keep buying what the food companies are selling, we are in actuality forfeiting “our power”, but more importantly, we’re jeopardising “our health”. We, The People, can blame the food industry, Big Pharma, the medical field, the lawyers, and politicians, and true, the blame is properly placed, but if we, The People, do nothing, continue to allow, continue to stick our heads in the sand, hide in our bubbles, then we too must bear and share the blame as well.. unless we take “collective” action against this outrageous, heinous atrocity.

      people need to grow their own food in their front yard back yard it is better than buying food sprayed with pesticides.
      Or spend a couple of extra bucks and buy organic. You have to hit these people in their pocket book to make an impact.

    2. Lyn says:

      EXCELLENT summation!! I have been saying similar things in my FB…just not as detailed! Thank you for telling it like it is!!

  5. Artsieladie says:

    This story and ones like it I Love hearing/reading about. I’m always delighted to learn of more good news and knowing that actual accountings of the positives of Cannabis are being told to help increase the awareness of the “benefits of Cannabis” as opposed to all the negative spin mainstream media places on this ‘miracle plant’. God bless Landon and his family and all those suffering with this and other dreaded diseases and if the truth be known, are suffering needlessly because Big Pharma prizes its disgustingly greedy profits more than the health and well being of The People.

    I’m a poet who likes to address matters of concern through poetic expression…
    “Keep The People Sick”

    Keep The People sick!
    Keep The People ill!
    For money’s to be made
    From each and every pill!

    Feed The People toxins
    Void of all nutrition,
    All to serve the greedy,
    Their money making mission!

    Enable all the causes,
    Allow NOT elimination,
    For treating of the symptoms
    Is money generation!

    We human guinea pigs
    Serve the rich, the elite,
    Every time we take a bite,
    Every time we eat!

    These glorified thieves,
    These glorified thugs,
    Keep us all subservient
    With their ‘useful’ drugs!

    But the usefulness is
    Under masterful disguise.
    Usefulness for whom?
    Is where the question lies!

    Feed The People food that
    Cause symptoms of disease
    So costly medical services
    Can rob our money, seize!

    Keep The People fed
    To make them overweight
    So the weight loss industry
    Can more money excavate!

    All the greedy zealots
    Have their fingers in the pie
    And the politician salaries,
    We pay for them to lie!

    The bankers and the lawyers
    And all the evil jacks
    Are stealing all our money,
    Hoarding it in sacks!

    All this at our expense,
    Us, they live to victimize,
    While they rob us blind
    And our health they jeopardize!

    All their propaganda
    Strategically put in place
    Is to instill fear and hate
    Throughout the human race!

    Keep The People in the dark,
    For divided we are weak
    And distracted by our differences,
    Truth we won’t then likely seek!

    We are being herded.
    We are being foddered
    Like sheep for their agenda
    And then to be slaughtered!

    Keep The People sick!
    Keep The People ill!
    For money’s being made
    From each and every pill!

    People who are healthy
    Have no need for drugs
    And all the other ‘disservices’
    Plagued on us by thugs!

    Do awaken, open up your eyes,
    Seek the Truth hidden in disguise.
    For the Truth will set us all free,
    Unite against the thugs to equal victory!

  7. lisa mullins says:

    I Really like keep the people sick-
    Can I copy it? It says all the people
    Need to hear!!!

    1. Artsieladie says:

      Thank you, Lisa, both for commenting and respectfully asking to copy and share it. PLEASE DO SHARE! I wrote it as a message (as most of my poetry is written) that needs to be heard to wake people up, to shake people up, with prayers and hope that it will, that it will help people to see clearly the WHOLE picture and how the various greedy entities are all working together AGAINST us, the 99%. We are being used as pawns in the greedy zealots’ sick game of chess and if we, the 99%, continue to allow things to continue as they are, checkmate is coming and in favour of the zealots, UNLESS we “collectively” change their course of action.

      1. Iam Jazhiel says:

  11. Ruth says:

    This may work for some people, but not all. My dad was using cannabis oil and his cancer still killed him. I just want to warn people whose hopes may be raised, and it may not work for them.

    1. Karen says:

      Hi was it the cannabis oil with cbd and thc. Like a thick black oil?

  12. Why is it everyone knows the only reason marijuana is illegal is for political reasons, but nothing is ever done about it? Because unfortunately, people are scared of their own government! A government that is more concerned with their BIG contributors than the people they are supposed to serve. A government that would rather see its people suffer needlessly in the name of profit and power. A government that ignores the will of the people and is only interested in their own agenda and the hell with everyone else. A government that comes up with ways to silence anyone who even begins to start movements to further the will of the people. A government that declares war on its own citizens. A government who’s local police forces are becoming more and more militarized. A government that is slowly eroding the individual freedoms and rights of its citizens. There’s a saying that someone once said, they came for the people on the other side of town and I did nothing. They Came for the people down the block and I did nothing. They came for the people across the street and I did nothing. They eventually came for me and there was no-one left to do anything. I know that is not exactly what was said but you can get the jest of it.

  13. mike says:

    WHAT WOULD BE EVEN MORE USEFUL IS IF THESE STORIES INCLUDED THE BRAND (OR STRAIN) OF THE OIL & THE DOSAGE… instructions would help more people than just another story of how it worked!!

  14. John says:

  18. HICKS DORIS J says:

    I was diagnosed of cancer which was critical in my case. It was as if my world had come to an end cause the doctor told me that it was only by the grace of the Almighty that I was alive. I was given few weeks to live but the pains I went through made each day feel like the last day and I was so scared to leave this earth. It was when i visited my aunt in California she told me about Rick Simpson cannabis oil, she told me she heard her friend’s mom talking about it, then i purchased the oil and I have being following the dosage that I was given for the past two months and there has being improvement in my health, I no longer feel pains and I wake up revived, energized.
