Olivia Newton John - medical cannabis and cancer

Oliva Newton John story cancer

Olivia Newton John was diagnosed in 2017 with stage 4 breast cancer that had metastasized to her back. The Australia 60 Minutes show below is an interview with Olivia on her treatment which includes medical cannabis.

“Within 20 minutes (of using medical cannabis) she (Olivia Newton John) got a good result.” She also weaned herself off morphine thanks to cannabis as she states in the interview.

“You learn whether one or two drops is enough dosage. If I don’t take the drops I can feel the pain.”

“(Cannabis) also helps with anxiety and sleep.”

“The latest MRI’s show lesser number of tumours and the other ones are shrinking...” said John Easterling, Olivia’s husband. “Olivia’s energy levels are increasing, she’s walking and out shopping, it’s astonishing.”

Prof. Jonathan Cebon, from the Olivia Newton John Cancer Research Institute, described Newton-John as a 'trooper' and 'fighter' and is anticipating being able to begin clinical trials on medical cannabis.
