End of the rope to newfound hope
Charlotte was only three months when she suffered her first seizure. She weighted 7 pounds, 12 ounces when she was born, she was healthy and normal. Her parent’s and her life changed forever when her eyes started to flicker during a routine diaper change. It was her first seizure and it lasted thirty minutes. The hospital performed the necessary tests, MRI, EEG, spinal tap and found nothing. The thought, it was one random seizure.
A week later, another seizure except this one lasted for hours. And for the next few months she would suffer two to four-hour long seizures. Doctors where stumped as Charlotte was repeatedly hospitalized as the seizures increased in frequency. Sometimes having multiple seizures per day. By the age of three, Charlotte was bound to a wheelchair, stopped talking and couldn’t eat on her own.
By age five her parents had nearly lost all hope. Charlotte’s doctors thought that there was not much more that could be done. No other drugs, remedies or solutions left to try!
That was until her grandfather read a successful story of a child facing a similar fate. He was researching how parents were using hemp products to treat their children. More specifically a CBD oil. Since the doctor’s had exhausted all treatment options. What did they have to lose, they asked themselves?
They succeeded in obtaining R4 extract cannabis oil. R4 has a high concertation of CBD (cannabidiol) and a very low of THC(less then 1%). Both THC and CBD are derived from the cannabis plant, but they have very different effects. An easy way to think about it is that THC makes you feel high while the effects of CBD can’t be felt.
But the results were stunning…
Charlotte’s seizures stopped in the first hour of her first dose. Her parent’s thought maybe it was a fluke, so they tried another dose. The seizures topped for another hour. And stop all together for the following seven days.
The results were amazing. Next step was to find a steady supply as their first batch was running out.
For the next year, Charlotte thrived. Her seizures only happened two to three times per month. She started walking, riding bikes and feeing herself. And she began talking more each day.
Charlotte’s success story is not the only one. There are many others. And not just dealing with epilepsy disorders. People are having positive results for issues like nicotine and drug withdrawal, anxiety disorders, cancer, schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s.
