Canabis For Medical Use

"When I take the cannabis it helps me all day. I feel much better. I can finally walk without crying from the pain in my legs”

David Sabach, 12-year-old cancer patient

David Sabach, 12, suffers from cancer but has just been out playing with friends in his family's apartment in central Israel.
He shows pictures of how he looked two years ago. He had lost his hair from chemotherapy treatment and was half his current weight.
A doctor recently prescribed David the CBD-enriched cannabis. It is delivered in the form of chocolate, cookies or cakes.
"I used to take morphine for pain and it would help for just a couple of minutes," he says.
"When I take the cannabis it helps me all day. I feel much better. I can finally walk without crying from the pain in my legs."

Medical marijuana has been used in Israel since the 1990s.

At Tikun Olam, the cannabis is rolled into cigarettes under laboratory conditions for medical use.
