Joy Smith who is a 52-year-old woman from Coventry was diagnosed with inoperable stomach and bowel cancer back in August 2016, and she was given six weeks to live. The doctor explicitly told her that she didn’t have much time to live and her only option is chemotherapy which would just increase the amount of time she gets to live but won’t eradicate the disease.
But Joy also decided that she would take the cannabis-based tablets and would also get chemotherapy with it. She read an article that there was another patient based in the U.S who was also suffering from the same disease started growing marijuana and took the marijuana oil and cured the disease. This gave hope to her, and she also thought that it would be worth the risk if she does this too.
Now two years have passed, and Joy is still growing strong and healthy without having to suffer much or losing her life. She has gone through all odds and has been called the luckiest person by her doctors. Her scans show that she has stopped the growth of cancerous cells in her body and now there is minimal disease left in her body.
Joy is just so confident that the remaining disease would also be eradicated from her body with the constant use of cannabis. Since the moment this news has been out, Joy has become a star and not just that, but the continuous use of marijuana has saved her life, but she has also won $84,000 in a competition ‘under the influence’ of cannabis oil.
She has said, ‘Cannabis oil should be legalized for medical purposes – people are dying, and chemotherapy isn’t curing them.’ She is currently taking a nutritional supplement known as cannabidiol, and as cannabis is legal in the UK, so it isn’t a problem for her to get it in any form. She is not only using marijuana but also using THC which doesn’t get her high and is useful for her treatment.
She also believes in buying the cannabis oil illegally. Cannabidiol has been made legal in the UK in 2016 when some tests were done, and it was seen that it has restoring effect on humans. But the legality of it has created issues and also raised some eyebrows due to which now the people selling cannabidiol have to acquire a license.
However, some people are selling it as a food supplement just so that they are saved from the lengthy process of acquiring a license. Cannabidiol has efficiently been proven to eradicate epilepsy, back pain, and anxiety. This comes in many forms including spray, oil, and tablets but the most common type is oil which the people spray under their tongue or even take the gel tablets melting in the mouth slowly.
The cannabidiol also contains THC which causes a person to get high, and that is certainly illegal in the UK. Joy used to take cannabis and has described it as taking thick black tar which is mixed with olive oil. She also added that if a person has been told that they would be able to live for six weeks only then, she is sure that one would do anything and would eat anything to save their life.
She was very skeptical at first when she was introduced to the idea of taking cannabis because she had told in an interview that there was never a time when she took any kind of drug, and this was a big step for her. But she now thinks that if it wasn’t for this cannabis then only she knows that where she would have been now. She’s delighted that she took this decision.
