“Cannabis saved my life”: American Grandmother loses over 10 stone using cannabis oil

  • Jenice Gutierrez weighed over 20 stone before using cannabis oil
  • The mother of 3 now weighs less than 10 stone
  • Pharmaceutical medications caused Jenice’s incredible weight gain
  • The grandmother is being forced to leave her family home for her family’s safety

An American grandmother has lost over 10 stone (151 pounds) thanks to cannabis oil.

Single mother of 3, Jenice Mckin Gutierrez, 46, from North Carolina, went from weighing 20 stone (282 pounds) to 9.6 stone (135 pounds) in less than two years.

Jenice credits her amazing weight loss to cannabis oil, which has helped her come off a cocktail of pharmaceutical medications.

Before beginning her medical marijuana journey, Jenice was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, Psoriatic Arthritis, OsteoArthritis, Diabetes, High Cholesterol, Severe Complicated PTSD. Stage 3 COPD, leaving her with 33% lung function.

Jenice explained how her conditions restricted her life:

“I couldn’t breathe. I was on Oxygen 24/7 and could barely make it to the bathroom.

“My children were taking care of me and I was waiting to die.

“I was obese, weighing in at 286 pounds.” Many patients who have turned to medical cannabis as an alternative to their pharmaceutical medications do so due to the numerous side-effects their medications have been causing:

“When I started on cannabis oil I was on about 14 medications including: daily Prednisone, Metformin, Pravastatin, OxyContin, Ozemprople, various inhalers… it was just on and on.

“My diabetes actually came from the Prednisone, and the Ozemprople was for side effects from arthritis meds such as Methotrexate, Indonethicin, Enbrel and Remicade that killed my body.

“I have been on a pharmaceutical roller coaster ride for years!”

Two years after ditching her pharmaceutical medications, Jenice’s life has completely turned around, for the better:

“My daily regimen is a rice grain sized drop of full spectrum cannabis oil and I smoke all day.

“I love edibles and I vape when I can get cartridges. I really love it all and believe in ‘Saturating’ my system.

“I am almost two years in and still seeing daily health improvements.

“I had nothing to lose as I had already started smoking marijuana to help me quit cigarettes, and accidentally discovered when I smoked Marijuana I could breathe better!

Weight loss due to cannabis
“That’s a natural weight loss of 151 pounds thanks to cannabis oil!”

“I am coming up on my two-year cannabis anniversary and my 47th birthday, and I can tell you I have never been so healthy or so small!

“I still have some orthopedic issues from years of Rheumatoid Arthritis which leaves me a little crippled, but I work through that and lead a totally normal life.

“I have been off oxygen for almost as long as I started the Cannabis oil and that, in itself, is a freedom you can’t imagine. I call it ‘being off my leash!’

Amazing transformation due to cannabis

“I am exercising and leading a life that I didn’t even think would ever be possible!

“I am at 135 pounds!

“That’s a natural weight loss of 151 pounds thanks to cannabis oil!”

]Due to years of anti-cannabis, “Reefer Madness” propaganda from World Governments against cannabis, there is still a negative stigma attached to the healing herb, putting many potential medical marijuana patients off from even trying the medicine.

Jenice was one of these skeptics before seeing cannabis save a loved one battling with cancer:

“Prior to a cancer battle with a child in 2014 I was very anti-cannabis and bought into the theory that it was a harmful substance.

“Seeing the way Cannabis kills cancer with my very own eyes was my moment of “Cognitive Dissonance”, my awakening if you will.

“Now I am officially out of the Cannabis closet and advocate for its broad legalization in this country and really for the entire world. No human should be denied this plant.

“I am living proof of its power!

Despite cannabis saving Jenice’s life, in more ways than one, the single mother is beign forced to move her family from their family home to a state where medical cannabis is legal and safe to consume.

“I am in North Carolina which is a totally illegal state located in the southern USA. I am smack dab in the middle of the Bible Belt and this country’s pharmaceutical capital.

“My why!” Jenice and her Granddaughter, forced to move to a legal state

“Coming out of the Cannabis closet here has basically ruined my life and has come with great repercussions to my personal life, so yes, I absolutely feel like a criminal.

“I currently have my childhood home up for sale and I am looking to move to a legal state ASAP.

“I don’t want my Granddaughter to ever worry about it being legal and to always have safe legal access!”

While Jenice is able to stay within her own country to find legal access to medical cannabis, desperate British patients are not so lucky.

Without legalisation efforts, thousands of patients who could see similar results with cannabis are being forced into a lifetime of addiction to opioid-based pharmaceutical medications.

The scientific consensus is slowly building that cannabis is a safe alternative to these opioids, is it not time for our Government to listen to experts and compassion, rather than fear and greed?
