A cancer patient today claimed he was cured – after taking CANNABIS OIL.
Mike Cutler, 63, was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2009 after blacking out at work – and was given a transplant in November that year.
He was given the all clear but claims the disease came back in late 2012 – attacking the new organ.
Mike began to look online in a bid to prolong his life and soon found a YouTube video which described the use of cannabis oil as a cure.
Just three days after taking the class B drug he says his excruciating pain just DISAPPEARED.
The grandfather-of-nine went for a biopsy at the Royal Free Hospital in London in May this year and says doctors told him the new cancerous cells were gone.
Retired builder Mike, from Hastings, West Sussex, said: “Finding out I could die was terrible.
“All I had in those dark days was my laptop, and that’s when I began searching for something else that could help me – I couldn’t accept that I was going to die.
“When I found out I was cured I was just completely shocked.
“I’m a normal family man, not a druggie. I had a serious illness and this helped.
“I can’t believe cannabis oil isn’t being used regularly as treatment, it is a miracle cure. The NHS should use it – it would save money.”
Mike started taking cannabis after watching a video online about how it could help cure the disease.
After purchasing the drug through a dealer the grandfather began to cultivate his own tablets from the oil.
He began to take one capsule a day and just three days later his symptoms had disappeared.
In a breaking-bad style plot he then began growing his own cannabis plant to keep up a steady supply of the medication.
Just a couple of weeks later Mike began coughing up blood and he believes it contained the dead cancer cells.
Mike was one of the speakers at an event about the medical use of cannabis along with Professor David Nutt and MP Caroline Lucas at Brighton Community Centre last week.
He is campaigning for changes in the law to allow the oil and other forms of cannabis to be legally used medicinally to treat other people.
New research published last week by scientist from the University of East Anglia found the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis – Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC – has been shown to have success in combatting the growth of cancerous cells.
Cancer Research UK are one of many organisations currently investigating the use of the chemical cannabinoids in the treatment of cancer.
They were first purified from cannabis plants in the 1940s and scientists have since discovered our own bodies develop a form of the chemical.
Cannabinoids help to control brain and nerve activity, energy metabolism, heart function, the immune system and even reproduction.
As a result a number of charities have intensified their research into the use of cannabis as a medical drug.
A spokeswoman for the Royal Free Hospital said Mike has not received any cancer treatment since his transplant in November.
