The 54-year-old star was diagnosed with incurable lung cancer two years ago.
In addition to orthodox medicines, she explained how she had also been using cannabis to help with her condition since she received the diagnosis.
“I decided to integrate plant medicine into my healing programme, and I began to use cannabis oil high in THC medicinally from the day I left the hospital two years ago,” she wrote.
“I have been committed and consistent in using it as a vital component of my journey to healing, both alongside regular treatments, and when none was offered, on its own.
