Difficult to talk about or not, bowel cancer is a topic that demands attention, as it is presently the fourth most common cancer in the UK. In 2012 alone, over 41,000 people were diagnosed with the gastrointestinal issue, and of that, about 16,187 deaths occurred. The United States, unfortunately, boasts even worse statistics.
But as this lifestyle-related disease continues to grow in prevalance, many people are seeking alternative therapies to reduce their odds of contracting it, as well as natural means to help them heal if already diagnosed.
One such individual was 33-year-old David Hibbitt, who last year was given a max of 18 months to live.
Diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2012, Hibbitt underwent various forms of allopathic treatments, including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery to remove the cancer. Unfortunately the efforts were unsuccessful, and in February 2014, David’s physician regretfully informed him that he had a max of 18 months to live.
As a last resort, the Staffordshire resident decided to try out cannabis oil. Though David says he was initially very skeptical of using the class-B drug, he figured he needed a miracle and didn’t have anything to lose.
“I felt like the chemo was killing me and I had nothing to lose. I couldn’t accept I was going to die,” stated Hibbitt.

After asking for advice from a friend, David was able to obtain pure cannabis oil from a local dealer for £50 a gram. According to the Daily Mail, such an amount would last David about one month.
And while David has never been into recreational drugs of any kind, he says that cannabis beats chemotherapy by a long shot.
“It gets you 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. I just want to make other people aware that there are other options out there,” shared David.
After a few years of dealing with the traumatizing diagnosis, David finally received the all clear this January. His cancer is officially gone.
Now a father and soon-to-be husband, David has a lot to live for, as well as an inspiring story of success that is sure to motivate others presently battling a terminal illness. While more research still needs to be conducted on the properties cannabis oil offers, this is not the first recollected experience promoting the medicinal benefits of this plant.
As Natural Society shares, a man named Ronnie Smith claims he has treated over 300 people (including himself) of cancer with cannabis oil that he makes himself in California. He is able to grow his own plants and use their properties legally as he has a medical marijuana card.
Similarly, Rick Simpson accredits the successful treatment of his cancer to the ‘miracle’ properties offered by cannabis. Simpson claims on his YouTube channel that pharmaceutical companies have been withholding the miracle cure of cannabis in order to boost their own profits for other cancer ‘treatments’ for many years.
Whether this is true or not, there are certainly a growing number of studies and personal experiences being documented on a day-to-day basis recommending cannabis as a ‘miracle’ remedy for a variety of ails.
