Yet another British cancer patient, who was given a short-period of time to live, claims that cannabis has helped cure her of the deadly disease.
Joy Smith, 52, was given only just six weeks to live after being diagnosed with inoperable stomach and bowel cancer in August 2016, The Daily Mail reported on Monday.
Initially, Smith was reluctant to try the cannabis-based tablets, alongside chemotherapy. But she was swayed after reading a success story of a U.S. cancer patient, who went into remission after producing her own marijuana oil.
“It’s impossible, but I’ve beaten science. My friends kept saying if anyone was going to beat it, it would be me, and I did – I’m still here.”
Two years later, the doctors described Smith as the “luckiest woman in the world” as they can’t understand her scan, which shows only a small amount of tumor left in her stomach.
Smith feels confident that it will go away with more cannabis use. Adding more to her flair as a “lucky” person, Smith recently won £84,000 after entering a competition on the British ITV channel while “under the influence” of cannabis oil.
A few days after she heard the breaking news that she nearly beat the disease, Smith discovered she won a competition she entered while ‘high’.
“I would have been stoned in bed and I entered an ITV competition, it must have been a text to win one.”
She said: “People are starting learn more about it now, it’s what’s keeping me here,” adding: “When people are dying something needs to be done. I want to do everything I can to get it legalized for medicinal purposes in the UK.”
“I wouldn’t be here now without it,” she summed her gratitude to the green herb.
Smith kept a positive mental state during her ordeal. She continued to live and started ticking off her bucket list.
“I did everything I wanted to do. The money doesn’t even feel real at the moment, it’s just so surreal. It’s been a whirlwind.”
In late February, The Puff Puff Post also reported a story about a British man, Phill James, who cured his brain tumor by vaping.
James, 32, was given only two years to live after his unfortunate diagnosis. But he kept an independent mind and did his research for alternative ways to cure the disease.
Unfortunately, medical and recreational marijuana is illegal in the UK but patients can have some access to some limited cannabis oil. The UK is also the world’s biggest exporter and producer of legal cannabis.
