How Weed Butter Helped This Couple Through Chemo

Chris Chapman tried dozens of medications to counter "side effects on top of side effects" of his chemotherapy cancer treatment. The side effects were mitigated with medical marijuana, which allowed him to discontinue all of those medications. This poignant short from filmmaker Angie Bird welcomes you to "Chappy's" kitchen to show you how this couple goes through chemo, together.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
