The well-known movie star actress Olivia Newton-John is fighting cancer for many years. At sad as that sounds she was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 1992 and fought that battle then. Years later cancer spread and was detected in her spine. With chemotherapy and medication that Olivia has been taking throughout the years, she has not able to function the way, she supposed to. With nausea, headache, loss of appetite, mood swings there is no way she can function properly.
Fighting Cancer with Marijuana
Olivia found Cannabidiol CBD oil to work for her the best. I use medicinal cannabis, which is really important for pain and healing. It’s a plant that has been maligned for so long and has so many abilities to heal.”-Olivia Newton-John. To Australia’s Daily Telegraph
CBD can be consumed through sprays, capsules, and vaping. This is not a substance that will get you high like the marijuana flower would. Many patients choose CBD oil since it does not get them lit, but it gets the job done. This is more of a muscle relaxing substance than a head change substance. It is not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and is considered as a controlled substance in the eyes of the law.

The question here is how can that marijuana help out cancer patients?
Doesn’t cannabis make your cancer worse?
It’s is not to be taken as a cure, but it helps to cope with pain. Marijuana has always been always frowned upon for many years. But many research studies have proven that marijuana makes a difference in cancer patients. Patients had a reduction in nausea and vomiting that was caused by therapy and radiation. Patients mainly use marijuana products to control the pain they go through. They don’t necessarily have to consume cannabis products that will get them high but will minimize the pain. Patients have reported gaining appetite when they consume cannabis instead of losing appetite.
