Mother, 44, diagnosed with deadly breast cancer claims she has cured herself by using cannabis oil a
A mother-of-two claims she has cured her aggressive breast cancer by taking one drop of cannabis oil every day.
Dee Mani, 44, refused chemotherapy when she was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer - deemed the deadliest form - and instead opted to try the oil, which is illegal in the UK.
Doctors gave her the all-clear just five months after she opted for the oil.
Despite her claims that it has cured her of cancer, there is no proof cannabis, or any of its compounds, can treat cancer in humans as research showing the drug's anti-tumour effects have been in petri dishes and on mice.
The legal status of cannabis oil in the UK has confused thousands after a landmark ruling that CBD, a compound in the drug, can be sold as a medicine with the correct licence. However, cannabis oil, which contains THC - the compound that causes high, is strictly illegal.
Ms Mani, from Birmingham, found a lump in her breast in March 2017 and soon after was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Doctors offered her chemotherapy, but she refused after it failed to keep her sister alive.
After researching alternative treatments online, she stumbled across cannabis oil and its reported benefits.
She then found a local supplier which cost her £22 a month and started taking the 'revolting' cannabis oil once every evening.
Ms Mani, who now lives in Cape Verde, claims that by August she was given the all-clear by doctors. She also changed her diet and started meditation.
Speaking for the first time, she said: 'Because of what happened to my sister, there was no way I was having chemo or radiotherapy.
'At first when I spoke to the doctor I agreed to everything I was told, I said I'd have one year worth of chemotherapy but then I did my research.
'After finding out about cannabis oil I started to put one drop into a capsule every night and take it before bed.
'Within four months I believe that I cured myself and then when I was given the all clear, I knew it was the cannabis that cured me.'
Ms Dani is still clear of cancer and continues to take the oil every night. She has written about her journey in a new book called 'My Way'.
Every year 11,400 people die from breast cancer in the UK. In the US, the figure is around four times higher.
Charities estimate around 15 per cent of all cases of breast cancer are triple negative - but death rates are proportionally higher.
Ms Dani added: 'Even though my cancer has gone I will take one capsule every night for the rest of my life.
'Alongside curing my cancer, it's helped me with my insomnia, my allergy to dust and the pain in my back from having slipped discs.'
Cannabis oil is usually bottled with a dropper - but can also come in the form of chewing gum, soap or as a vape oil for e-cigarettes.
It has been reported to help people with epilepsy, rheumatism, migraines, psoriasis, acne, multiple sclerosis and depression.
