Olivia Newton-John reveals she is using cannabis oil to treat pain as she battles cancer for third time Olivia Newton-John has revealed she has been diagnosed with cancer for the third time in three decades, saying "I believe I will win over it". The Grease star revealed she is treating the cancer with modern medicine and natural remedies, including using cannabis oil to ease the pain. The 69-year-old actress appeared on Australian TV on Sunday night where she revealed doctors found a tumour in her lower back in 2017. She told news program "Sunday Night" she was "treating it naturally and doing really well". Newton-John said she had undergone radiation treatments since being diagnosed with the disease for the third time but was also adopting natural remedies. The English-Australian actress said she was using cannabis oil from plants grown by her husband in California as she called on Australia to legalise medical marijuana. “In California it’s legal to grow a certain amount of plants for your own medicinal purposes. So [my husband] makes me tinctures... they help with pain,” she told Sunday Night. source: Rozina Sabur 24 Olivia Newton-John attends the grand opening of her residency show 'Summer Nights' at Flamingo Las Vegas on April 11, 2014.
