When humans are faced with death, their will to live is tested to the maximum. The scenario can be anything, an accident, an effort to hurt you or it may be anything, even a deadly disease.
David Hibbitt of Staffordshire, U.K was faced with the dreaded truth of doctors giving him just 18 months to live. Hibbitt suffered from bowel cancer and despite going through chemotherapy and radiation treatment, his health showed no signs of progress. In a desperate measure, Hibbitt decided to turn to an unconventional method in a hope to cure his cancer.
Read on to find out how he saved himself.
1 David Hibbitt’s ordeal
David Hibbitt is a 33 year old resident of Staffordshire, U.K, was diagnosed with bowel cancer in July 2012. He underwent all the possible treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation treatment and even surgery in order to try and cure his cancer. The doctors removed his large bowel in an attempt to stem the spread of cancer.
But even after such efforts, the doctors saw no improvement in David’s health. The doctors told him that the cancer was terminal and gave him 18 months to live. As a husband and father to a son, Hibbitt decided to try something alternative in order to save himself.
2 David’s research into cannabis oil
Some of David’s friends advised him to look into alternative treatments and one of the treatments was cannabis oil. David decided to do some research online in order to check about the effects of cannabis oil in cancer treatments.
He found lots of material where people said that cannabis oil helped them get cancer free. As a last resort, David bought the oil from a local dealer. He says that one vial costs him 50 pounds and lasts for a month.
3 Cannabis Oil
Cannabis Oil is a controversial and illegal method used by some cancer patients in trying to cure themselves. Though medical institutions such as Cancer Research UK says it is unaware of people using extracts from cannabis to treat themselves and that there is “no good evidence” to support it as a safe and effective treatment for cancer.
Cannabis oil contains CBD and THC compounds in it. CBD assists in fighting the cancerous growths in the body, while the THC causes the person to have the feeling of getting high. Hibbitt mentions that, ‘It gets your pretty high and knocks you for six, but it’s nowhere near as bad as chemotherapy. . . The pain just seemed to disappear and it seems to have done the job.’
4 Result of Cannabis Oil
David used Cannabis oil instead of having any further use of chemotherapy or radiation. When he went for a scan in following January, the scans revealed that his cancer was in remission. And by January 2015, he was completely cancer free. This gave him the time to organise his wedding to his fiance Heather.
David also has a 5 year old son Ashton. His fiance is a nurse and said,” ‘I didn’t want him to take the cannabis oil at first because it’s illegal, but I saw the change in him and slowly got used to it. ‘He is a determined person and did a lot of research. He wanted to live.”
5 Medical opinion on Cannabis oil usage
Cancer research UK says that it is unaware of patients using cannabis extracts as a way of treating themselves. But they were adamant that there is no evidence of any kind to prove that it was safe and effective. The charity is doing clinical research trials into the use of the drug in and a synthetic variable of cannabis to treat the disease.
Dr Kat Arney, from Cancer Research UK, said: “We know that cannabinoids – the active chemicals found in cannabis – can have a range of different effects on cancer cells grown in the lab and animal tumors. But at the moment there isn’t good evidence from clinical trials to prove that they can safely and effectively treat cancer in patients.”
But patients are using the illegal drug to treat themselves for various kinds of cancers and it seems to be working for them.
