CBD Oil ‘Saved Her Life’ After Doctors Said She Had 6 Months To Live

A woman diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour has credited cannabis oil for making her cancer-free.

Lynn Cameron was told she had just ‘six to 18 months’ to live and was devastated when chemotherapy and radiotherapy were failing to reduce the deadly mass.

Medicines – Diets – Bid

The 48-year-old began desperately researching alternative medicines and diets in a desperate bid to survive.

After she opted to try the oil when a friend suggested it, a scan later revealed the cancer had disappeared.

Lynn, from Blantyre, in South Lanarkshire, Scotland, told the Daily Record: ‘I found it hard to believe that it would cure brain cancer so advanced.

‘Each scan I received after that was showing an improvement.

‘I – Chemotherapy – Radiotherapy – Difference – Cannabis

‘I had been told that chemotherapy and radiotherapy doesn’t make much difference, so I knew it must be the cannabis doing it. By the sixth MRI, the cancer had gone.’

Lynn is one of a number of patients providing anecdotal reports that medical cannabis oil has improved their outlook.

Studies suggest cannabis compounds may kill certain malignant cells in the lab. But experts warn there is no definitive proof yet of its effects on cancer in humans.

Olivia Newton-John’s daughter recently revealed that her mother will be treating her second breast cancer diagnosis with medicinal marijuana, along with traditional treatment.

It was terminal

Lynn had a sudden seizure in November 2013 and when a scan showed a tumour, she was taken straight into Southern General Hospital in Glasgow.

She had an operation on December 16 but a week later doctors told her they hadn’t been able to remove it all and her cancer was stage 4 and terminal.

So she began researching into natural therapies, trying an alkaline diet and cutting out processed foods and sugar.

She said that when she first read about cannabis oil she was sceptical that it could cure brain cancer as advanced as hers.

But after several sessions of chemotherapy and radiotherapy showed no changes on her scans, she thought ‘I’m going to break the mold here and try that’.

Lynn said she ingested it under her tongue so that the active ingredients would get straight into her blood stream.

Classification as medicine 

Lynn said she had kept her use of cannabis oil from doctors, but revealed it to them after she got the all-clear.

However, she says they dismissed it and believes they weren’t taught about cannabis at medical school.

Now, almost four years after her diagnosis, Lynn is healthy and still in remission.

COMPOUND IN CANNABIS DESTROYS LEUKAEMIA TUMOURS

A compound in cannabis is ‘significantly’ effective in destroying cancerous tumours in leukaemia, research suggests.

A new study found that combining existing chemotherapy treatments with cannabinoids – the active chemicals in cannabis – had better results than chemotherapy alone.

The findings suggest that a lower dose of chemotherapy can be used on patients, minimising side effects of the treatment, say researchers.

Furthermore, scientists discovered that order the treatment was administered was crucial – using cannabinoids after chemotherapy resulted in a greater death of the blood cancer cells.

Lead author of the study, Dr Wai Liu, from St George’s, University of London, said: ‘We have shown for the first time that the order in which cannabinoids and chemotherapy are used is crucial in determining the overall effectiveness of this treatment.’

 And now she is part of a new campaign group, Medical Cannabis Reform Scotland, which is pushing ‘for the reform of the current prohibitive laws around the use of cannabis for medication’.

Cannabis oil is made up of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) – the two primary ingredients in the plant. It can either be orally ingested, vapourised or applied directly to the skin.

CBD is now considered a medicine by the UK’s regulatory body, the MHRA, after it was found to have a ‘restoring, correcting or modifying’ effect when given to humans.

While THC – which is responsible for the high – was found to help relieve pain in patients in a study by University of California researchers in 2012.

The ruling means cannabis-based products can be sold legally in the UK and manufacturers will have to ensure they pass safety checks.

However, Dr Kat Arney, from Cancer Research UK, said that while study findings have been promising, cancer patients should not get their hopes up.

She previously said: ‘We know that cannabinoids can have a range of different effects on cancer cells grown in the lab and animal tumours.

Lynn – Seizure – November – Tumour – Southern

Lynn had a sudden seizure in November 2013 and when a scan showed a tumour, she was taken straight into Southern General Hospital in Glasgow.

She had an operation on December 16 but a week later doctors told her they hadn’t been able to remove it all and her cancer was stage 4 and terminal.

Therapies – Alkaline – Diet – Foods – Sugar

So she began researching into natural therapies, trying an alkaline diet and cutting out processed foods and sugar.

She said that when she first read about cannabis oil she was sceptical that it could cure brain cancer as advanced as hers.

Four years ago, this cancer survivor was told she had “six to 18 months” to live. Today, she is advocating for the decriminalization of the life-saving herb.

No one wants to be told they have cancer — let alone an inoperable brain tumor, yet this is the exact reality Lynn Cameron was faced with in 2013. In December of that year, doctors informed the 48-year-old that she had just “six to 18 months” to live. You can imagine her devastation.

Determined to live, Cameron underwent several sessions of chemotherapy along with radiotherapy.

“I took a seizure on November 30, 2013, prior to which I had been quite well. I had a scan on December 10 and it showed a mass, and I was taken straight into Southern General at that point,” explained Cameron. “I was operated on on December 16, and on December 27 I was told that I had stage 4 terminal brain cancer. So I underwent the chemotherapy and radiotherapy combined, but was told even then I would live six to 18 months at best.”

Scared by the diagnosis, she also began supplementing with cannabis oil (CBD) — a therapy that is presently illegal in the UK. “A good friend suggested cannabis, but I was too scared because it’s illegal. I also found it hard to believe that it would cure brain cancer so advanced,” she said. “But as the scans were showing there was no change to the mass, I eventually thought, ‘I’m going to break the mold here and try that’.”

Nearly four years after her diagnosis, Lynn is still alive and says cannabis oil is the reason. She is now advocating “for the reform of the current prohibitive laws around the use of cannabis for medication.”

Over the past four years, the cancer patient has educated herself on a wide range of natural therapies to combat the affliction. She said, “I researched more and more into natural ‘cancer killers’ and decided to follow an alkaline diet and cut out processed foods altogether. I also cut out sugar completely. I started taking cannabis oil under my tongue, as it gets straight into the blood stream that way.”

Reportedly, every scan Cameron received showed an improvement. “I had been told that chemotherapy and radiotherapy doesn’t make much difference, so I knew it must be the cannabis doing it. By the sixth MRI, the cancer had gone,” she said.

After finally receiving the all-clear, Lynn challenged the doctors about the potential benefits (or adverse reactions) of supplementing with cannabis oil. “The doctors treating me didn’t know about the cannabis oil until I got the results,” she said. “I challenged them on it, but they dismissed it. They weren’t taught about cannabis at medical school – more for a political reason than medical I believe.”

“They told me, ‘eat whatever you like, take all the vitamins you want, it won’t work’. But these were the people who told me my cancer was incurable, and it was gone,” she exclaimed. “The British Medical Journal hasn’t properly investigated cannabis. The irony was they were giving me morphine and codeine in the wards. Prior to becoming ill, I had never taken a pill before in my life.”

Though chemotherapy has been proven to be more beneficial when partnered with the supplementation of cannabis oil, it is possible the extract from the marijuana plant is what propelled Cameron’s healing process the most. Until more research is conducted, this cannot be confirmed.

Said the cancer survivor: “It was up to me what treatment I took, and I’m glad I researched it.”
