Olivia Newton-John Talks About Her Use Of Medical Cannabis During Cancer Battle

Photo: TODAY and In Your AreaMedical cannabis is a controversial topic in the United States and an even more controversial topic in Australia, where Olivia Newton-John is from. Yet the Grease star has been open about her use of it during her cancer battle. She’s one of the many people that talk about their use of medical cannabis in the documentary called High As Mike.The documentary is apparently about “the difficulties Australians are having getting medicinal cannabis,” according to the 70-year-old. “I’m not encouraging [anyone] to break the law, but I know what I would do,” Newton-John says.Photo: TODAY
Newton-John first battled cancer in 1982 and underwent a partial mastectomy in addition to reconstructive surgery. She then was diagnosed a second time in 2013 and a third time in 2018. Doctors believed her back pain was due to sciatica, but they later confirmed that the breast cancer had metastasized to her sacrum, as a tumor was found at the base of her spine.“I use a lot of cannabis in my healing,” she said to Yahoo! Lifestyle recently. “It helps me incredibly with pain and sleep.”Photo: Denise Truscello
The actress says that she, like most other people, was hesitant about using cannabis as a means of healing. Then she found out that it’s a huge aid in helping pain, insomnia, and depression, which are just some of the things she experienced as side effects of her cancer.“It’s an astounding plant, a maligned plant. However, it’s aiding such a significant number of individuals,” she said.Newton-John says she and her husband grow their own cannabis on their ranch in California. “He [her husband] grows the plants and makes them into a liquid for me. I take drops maybe four to five times a day,” she says.Photo: In Your Area
Newton-John was pleased to take part in treatment at her own Australian cancer treatment hospital, the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre.Metastasis happens, so it wasn’t a total shock to me…But the wonderful thing was that this happened when I was in Australia…I ended up in my hospital for three weeks…I got to experience the programs that I’d worked so hard to convince them are important. And they were.”Photo: Kathryn BurkeBe sure to SHARE this article with your thoughts on Olivia Newton-John’s use of medical cannabis!
