American Woman Claims Cannabis Oil Cured Her Breast Cancer
There has been a lot of attention recently aimed at the potential health benefits of cannabis products.
Here in the UK, only a matter of weeks ago we saw the case of Alfie Dingley, a young boy who has horrific, life-threatening seizures that are massively reduced by cannabis oil.
On the other side of the pond, in the USA, a woman now claims that cannabis oil not only helped, but cured her breast cancer completely.
Oklahoma resident Rhonda Gossett was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer back in 2010, she then found that the disease had also spread to her bones and her brain. Doctors gave her just one year to live.
Straight away she went through chemotherapy and radiation treatment which sent the cancer into remission, but it then returned.
This was that point that she turned to other options. She started using CBD oil, and claims that she used only CBD oil after that. Two years later she was given the all clear and is cancer free.
Although research has yet to prove this, she thinks that the cannabis oil is what cured her.
She told News 9: "[after starting taking CBD oil] I started feeling better all the time. I felt like my mind, and my brain started healing."
Her husband Darren also told the TV channel: "She's a miracle. She's a miracle to anybody who knows her, she's a miracle to the doctors"
Rhonda added: "I just feel very blessed that I'm here."
The family now take CBD oil every day as a supplement to their ordinary diet, and they are presumably really pleased that Oklahoma recently voted in favour of what is known as State Question 788, which has made it legal to grow, use, and sell marijuana for medical purposes.
It also allows doctors to have great freedom to prescribe cannabis products for those who they feel need it.
Before the state went to the polls, Darren told KFOR: "We're going to vote for medical marijuana because we feel that people that have no alternatives, this gives them an opportunity to try something that could possibly save their life."
Oklahoma joins 30 other states in legalising medical marijuana. It is also thought that Utah will join the majority later this year.
90 percent of Americans are in favour of legalising medical marijuana, however, only 43 percent of supporters of the governing Republican party are in favour.
