Olivia Newton-John, the star of hit 70’s musical Grease, announced that she has been diagnosed with cancer for the second time.

Having beaten breast cancer back in 1992, the former actress took to social media to reveal that the cancer had now returned, spreading to her back.

It was her daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, who announced that her mother would be using medicinal cannabis, as well as continuing her other treatments.

Chloe, Olivia’s only child, thanked fans in a reassuring message on her Instagram, writing: “My mom and best friend is going to be fine!

“She will be using medicine that I often talk about. CBD oil! (Cannabis has scientifically proven properties to inhibit cancer cell growth) and other natural healing remedies plus modern medicine to beat this.”

Olivia confirmed of her decision on her Facebook: “I decided on my direction of therapies after consultation with my doctors and natural therapists and the medical team at my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia.”

Chloe, a businesswoman in her own right, owns a legal marijuana farm in Oregon with her fiancé James Driskill. This seems to have had an impact on the actress’s decision to add the cannabinoid CBD, and will probably be where Olivia will get her supply of the herbal medicine from.

James, Chloe’s fiancé and business partner, currently works as the lead garden manager at Crystal Farm Organics, another Oregon cannabis farm.

Explaining why she decided to pursue a career in medicinal cannabis, Chloe wrote: “My main goal is to help people with cancer. I’ve seen this plant’s properties heal and even cure forms of cancer. Can’t wait till our products are on shelves to help and make people happy.”

While there is no conclusive proof that cannabis can “cure” cancer, it has been shown in several studies to help treat some of the more severe side-effects of chemotherapy, such as nausea, loss of appetite, and helps fight depression and patients come to terms with the possibility of death which often affects cancer patients.

Cannabis oil has been making the national news recently after Callie Blackwell went on to ITV’s This Morning to talk about cannabis helped save her son from the brink of death.
