24-year-old Kristina Marie was diagnosed with a brain tumor and given a death sentence by establishment doctors. She decided to reject chemotherapy and treat herself with Rick Simpson’s hemp oil instead. After three MRI’s her tumors have shrunk considerably.

Twelve months ago, doctors told Ruth Ashcraft it was time to look seriously into a palliative care or hospice facility for her husband, Andy, whose health had taken another turn for the worse.

He already had surpassed the typical survival time for a pleural mesothelioma patient, and his experimental, clinical trial drug had stopped working. He was struggling to breath and deteriorating steadily. They had just drained more than three gallons of fluid from around his lungs and inside his abdomen.

It was time, doctors said.

Ruth listened, but she didn’t listen very well. She had other plans — cannabis oil.

The oil is extracted from the buds of a marijuana plant. It’s a controversial, alternative treatment option she had researched and contemplated for two years. Ruth sought the treatment for Andy utilizing California’s Medical Marijuana Program.

Now, Andy is beaming again.

“The man is healthy today, and there is no other explanation for that,” Ruth told Asbestos.com. “Beyond a shadow of doubt, this cannabis oil has worked wonders for him. I’d recommend it for anyone with cancer. I’m not saying it will work every time on everyone, but it’s working for us.”

Cannabis oil helped cure my cancer, claims father who was given two years to live. Trevor Smith, 54, was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2012. Told he needed immediate op to remove bladder and prostate, then chemo. But worried about his quality of life afterwards, he tried alternative therapies. Began taking cannabis oil after reading about it online. Claims that after 10 weeks, tests showed his cancer had not spread after all. This meant he was able to undergo much less invasive laser surgery. Has now been cancer-free for a year and wants to raise awareness of the oil.
