Curious about Cannabis for Cancer?

I was too.

In November 2019, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 NSCLC and given no hope for healing by my doctors. 

In my search for an alternative to the death sentence that was offered to me, I discovered the healing power of Cannabis!

But it wasn't easy!

I had to navigate my way back to wellness completely on my own, and now that I have no evidence of disease, I'm determined to ensure that no one else has to go through what I did. To do this, I'm making it my mission to learn as much as I possibly can about utilizing Cannabis for cancer so that I can be a resource to those in need. 

This mission is what drove me to become a Certified Cannabis Health Coach & Educator through the Cannabis Coaching Institute.

After that, I started my Cannabis coaching company, naturalisticallynow, and joined the team at EduCanNation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting responsible Cannabis education in Canada. 

In 2023, I studied with Dr. Bonni Goldstein in her Course for Clinicians and I completed the training from Dr. Dustin Sulak. I have an extensive library of books, that aren't just for show, and I continue to expand my therapeutic knowledge by collaborating with other healers like myself. 

Have you been diagnosed with cancer?

Have you heard that Cannabis can help, but aren't sure where to start?

Have you gone to your doctor for answers and only come away with more questions?

When I was diagnosed with cancer, doctors rushed me toward harmful treatments without giving me a moment to understand what was happening in my body.

They insisted I "not wait,” and “act fast,” after explaining to me the years it took for this disease to manifest to the point of being detectable.

When I tried to take the time to understand my options, I fell into many rabbit holes, got lost in many labyrinths, and came out more messy and confused than when I went in.

The time that I spent researching and navigating through all that unknown territory so that I could make the right choice for me to achieve my goals with cancer, was time I could have spent on my healing.

That’s time I can’t get back for myself, but I can give that time to you. 

About Jay Jay O'Brien

Hey! I'm Jay Jay O'Brien.
I've always had cannabis in my life, but I didn't always have cancer.

In Nov 2019, at 43, my life changed in an instant when I was offered a diagnosis of Stage 4 Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).

Refusing to accept it, I ignored the statistics and the misconceptions that this was a death sentence.

Instead, my Indigenous and Herbalist roots propelled me into a labyrinth of rabbit holes searching for ways I knew I could heal my body.

In that search, I discovered that the plant I had a relationship with my whole life, could potentially be exactly what I needed to help me heal!

While I heroic dosed highly concentrated Cannabis oil attempting to heal cancer, my mind, body, and spirit began to heal on a whole other level!

And the cancer cleared too!

My ability to break free from my addictions because of my cannabis use, and the deep spiritual connection it forged within me encourages my healing further while giving me all the time in the world to seek out the life I was always supposed to be living!

Cannabis was the catalyst. 

Let me show you how intentional cannabis use can be right for you!
