We hope all of you have seen our post about the incredible powerful Growing Hope documentary that was done by NBC that covered the impact medical marijuana can have for children suffering from epilepsy and the effects it can have not only on the children’s symptoms, but also the effects it has on the families in general.
Many families have gone through countless medications, diet changes, therapies, etc. for their child. However, their children suffering from serious and rare conditions do not seem to find enough relief. Moreover, some of the medications and actions they need to take often make their child’s conditions worse.
Fortunately, there is hope, but the hope often involves a major fight within the family’s state or even a drastic and usually impossible move to a different state. Why? Because it’s medical marijuana. And no, these children are not getting “high”. They are consuming non-psychoactive cannabinoids such as CBD (cannabidiol) that has its own essential medicinal benefits. Unfortunately, medical marijuana is not legal on the federal level and a lot of medical marijuana laws do not allow the access to cannabis for children. However, many families are fighting to gain access for their child.
Little by little, eyes are opening to the miracle medical marijuana can be for children suffering from serious illnesses. Nonetheless, it is still a fight for these families. Videos, documentaries, stories and testimonies like the video below are what will be the ultimate driver for the world to see exactly how important medical marijuana can be for these children…and their family.
