A high-profile Hollywood stuntman claims to have cured his Stage IV colorectal cancer using cannabis oil.
Mark Chavarria was offered the oil to help with the pain he suffered from the advanced cancer, which had spread from his colon into his liver.
He says, ‘Once I got on this oil, I was able to get rid of everything. All the Oxycontin, everything.
Chavarria faced a gruelling regime of chemotherapy and radiation treatment, but says he believed that the cannabis oil actually helped beat the cancer.
‘It’s kind of gross, but I literally felt like I was pooing the thing out every time I went to the toilet.
‘What I believe happens with the oil is it makes like a shellac on the tumors, and it doesn’t let it grow; doesn’t let it breathe; doesn’t let it eat… nothing. I think it was slowly, but surely, peeling away at the tumors like an onion.’
‘I feel good. I’m always nervous, always scared it will come back. But it’s gone. If it does come back, I know it won’t be as aggressive as last time because we’ll catch it early,” he added.’
