Although the US Drug Enforcement Administration still lists marijuana and its cannabinoids (biologically active ingredients) as Schedule I controlled substances, compounds from the marijuana plant have been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments, including cancer.
“There are a lot of people who don’t want people doing this [cannabis oil], but I think it has really done a lot for me,” Andy told Surviving Mesothelioma in a recent interview. “I just feel very fortunate that we are able to get it.”
The Ashcrafts are able to obtain high-quality oil from the bud of the marijuana plant through California’s Medical Marijuana Program at a cost of about $1,000 a month.
“They are very upfront about the fact that the regimen Andy is using to managing his pleural mesothelioma is not cheap and not easy,” says Alex Strauss, Managing Editor of Surviving Mesothelioma. “But given the limited options available to mesothelioma patients, we think this is information that they need to know.”
