Another day… another inspirational story about marijuana’s CBD cannabinoid.
While marijuana is still called an illegal narcotic by every right wing crook on big Pharma’s payroll – marijuana continues demonstrating its medicinal ability to help children trapped in a seizure ridden body, allowing them to break free from a life of seizures, pain and unnecessary procedures. Allowing for many the first trace of normalcy their tiny lives have ever enjoyed.
Nine years of suffering can seem like a lifetime, particularly to Heather Jackson’s son – Zaki. Zaki’s painful and life-threatening epilepsy caused misery, and confusion with seemingly nonstop seizures. Leaving the little man incontinent and completely dependent on his mother. Fortunately for Zaki and his heroic mother – their situation improved drastically– thanks to medical marijuana and the CBD cannabinoids found in Charlotte’s Web.
According to the Huffington Post, That’s the name of a strain of medical marijuana being used to treat children with epilepsy. Jackson turned to the marijuana oil out of “sheer necessity” after countless attempts to help her son — which included 17 pharmaceuticals, craniosacral therapy and chiropractic adjustments, among others — failed to make a difference.
Zaki’s seizures started when he was 4 months old and completely took over his life.
“They spiraled out of control very quickly,” Jackson told HuffPost Live’s Ricky Camilleri. “He started with maybe a dozen seizures a day, and within several months he was having hundreds of seizures every day. And he lived that way for almost a decade.”
In July 2012, after no other treatments had made an impact, Jackson decided to try Charlotte’s Web, which has “literally put [Zaki’s] condition into remission,” she said.
“He went 48 hours without a seizure immediately. Within three days he was pumping his legs on the swings, which is something I had tried to teach him for seven years,” Jackson said. “Within three months, he became seizure-free, and tomorrow he’ll be 14 months seizure-free.”
