Lynn Cameron claims cannabis oil helped her cure brain cancer. Lynn had a sudden seizure in November 2013 and when a scan showed a tumour, she was taken straight into Southern General Hospital in Glasgow.
She had an operation but a week later doctors told her they hadn’t been able to remove it all and her cancer was stage 4 and terminal.
Lynn was told she had just ‘six to 18 months’ to live and was devastated when chemotherapy and radiotherapy were failing to have any effect in reducing the tumour.
The 48-year-old began desperately researching alternative medicines and diets in a desperate bid to survive.
“I researched more and more into natural ‘cancer killers’ and decided to follow an alkaline diet and cut out processed foods altogether. I also cut out sugar completely,”
Lynn explained, “A good friend suggested cannabis, but I was too scared because it’s illegal. I also found it hard to believe that it would cure brain cancer so advanced.
But as the scans were showing there was no change to the mass, I eventually thought, ‘I’m going to break the mould here and try that’.
I started taking cannabis oil under my tongue, as it gets straight into the blood stream that way.
Each scan I received after that was showing an improvement. I had been told that chemotherapy and radiotherapy doesn’t make much difference, so I knew it must be the cannabis doing it.”
“They told me, ‘eat whatever you like, take all the vitamins you want, it won’t work’.
But these were the people who told me my cancer was incurable, and it was gone.”
Four years later she has been given the all clear and says it was cannabis oil that helped her survive. She is now pushing ‘for the reform of the current prohibitive laws around the use of cannabis for medication’.
Lynn, from Blantyre, in South Lanarkshire, Scotland, told the Daily Record: ‘I found it hard to believe that it would cure brain cancer so advanced.
Lynn said she had kept her use of cannabis oil from doctors, but revealed it to them after she got the all-clear.
However, she says they dismissed it and believes they weren’t taught about cannabis at medical school.
Now, almost four years after her diagnosis, Lynn is healthy and still in remission and now she is part of a new campaign group, Medical Cannabis Reform Scotland, which is pushing ‘for the reform of the current prohibitive laws around the use of cannabis for medication’.
Since beginning her treatments, Scotland has voted to legalize medical cannabis, but only under certain, very strict conditions. At the time of Lynn Cameron’s decision, any form of cannabis was illegal in the country and came with some pretty harsh penalties. Still, Lynn Cameron knew she had nothing left to lose and everything to gain.
