The discovery that Medical Marijuana may have the potential to cure people from serious illnesses is shown in the following inspirational stories:
These real-life stories reveal the heart-felt triumphs, and the success and improvement they experienced from using Medical Marijuana.
Two years ago Charlotte was losing a lifelong battle to epilepsy, at the age of five she was suffering from up to 50 seizures each day. Today, Charlotte, now seven, is like any other child. She rides horses, goes to school, and plays with her twin sister and older brother. She is 99% seizure free, suffering usually one seizure a month which is easily under control after a few minutes. She can walk, talk, feed herself, has a normal sleep cycle, and she has not taken prescription medication in two years. According to her parents, “We were using Medical Marijuana as end-of-life comfort measures, but it turned out that those measures saved Charlotte’s life!”
The movement to legalize medical Marijuana has a face like Charlotte’s, it’s a young one that’s hard to ignore!!!
Lawmakers across the country are pushing legislation to legalize Marijuana Oil as a treatment for children with epilepsy. The Marijuana extract is produced in Colorado and and is designed not to produce a ‘high.’ Instead the strain has increased levels of CBD, a chemical that fights seizures, and is low in THC, the main mind-altering ingredient found in the Cannabis plant. Since this development many parents have traveled to Colorado to treat their children, the state law does not have provision that allows the shipment or sale of Marijuana products out of state. Many have no choice but to relocate to Colorado for this amazing oil.
Charlotte’s Web is a sativa Marijuana strain that has gained popularity as a good option for treating seizures as well as a range of other medical conditions.
Landon is a 3 year-old boy from Colorado that has Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia or ALL, a cancer of nlood and bone marrow, the most common cancer in children. His mother says that Landon’s condition has improved so much with Medical Marijuana that Chemotherapy isn’t required anymore!!
By using medical Marijuana 9 year-old Kiana is having fewer seizures, has started talking more frequently, and in full sentences. Kiana’s family were left with two choices after 25 failed epilepsy medications: 1. To cut out a piece of their daughters brain or 2. To give Kiana Medical Marijuana, Medical Marijuana seemed like a better option. With little hope they started giving little Kiana oil extract from Cannabis, within 10 days they saw incredible results! Kiana’s mother was skeptical at first, not wanting to give her daughter Marijuana, but after seeing the results she had no doubts that she did the right thing. Kiana’s seizures went from hundreds per day to two or three per month, this was an amazing improvement for little Kiana!!
Juicing raw Cannabis is the Crohn’s Disease health cure that Kristen claims saved her life. Diagnosed at 16 with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, the illness quickly turned into an auto-immune disorder that left her bedridden for four years. Finally the teen and her mother began to look for alternative treatments. Kristen began juicing raw Cannabis, and after a month she claims her pain stopped and her recovery began. She is now an advocate for Medical Marijuana treatment for fellow sufferers.
Mykala had T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a rare and aggressive form of childhood Leukemia. In July of 2012 doctors discovered a basketball-sized mass of Lymphoblasts in her chest. The mass was so large that she was not able to be sedated for risk of death from the pressure on her esophagus and heart. Once given Cannabis oil her cancerous cell counts decreased almost immediately. 6 days after her first dose of Cannabis oil she went into remission, 2 years later she’s still in remission.
With Medical Marijuana’s newfound benefits and increased media attention, states that wouldn’t have touched the issue a few years ago are finding sympathy for sick children who desperately need medical treatment wherever they can find it, and voters who may not have supported medical marijuana before are having a change of heart. More research needs to be done, but new applications with health benefits are being made on a regular basis, without negative side effects.
As one politician put it: “The most powerful thing in American politics is an angry mother.”
