Ezra’s story is an incredible one, to say the least. This little boy has been through more than most adults will ever imagine in a lifetime. Ezra suffers from a variety of different conditions starting with seizures from a rare disorder called Lennox Gastaut Syndrome (LGS). He also has dystonia, chronic pain, muscle spasms, chronically dislocated hips, osteopenia, bilateral amblyopia, scoliosis, possible metabolic disorder, gastroparesis, GERD, and multiple food
Jason is a retired Army Veteran who has been deployed overseas several times. He suffered a traumatic brain injury in a bombing and has since dealt with depression, anxiety, PTSD and severe pain.
VA doctors were quick to heavily sedate him with an army of pharmaceutical drugs including medications for pain, depression, and anxiety. Once these pills took effect, Jason started gaining a lot of weight, his anger increased,
Zaki has a very rare form of epilepsy called Doose syndrome. On top of many, many seizures, he has autism and his development has been delayed. He had 6 different types of seizures resulting in hundreds of thousands of seizures in his short life. Zaki was receiving hospice palliative care prior to cannabinoid therapy after his family tried 17 different pharmaceuticals, all of which failed him.
The Brown family are natives of Colorado and Tyler has suffered from debilitating seizures since the age of 7 from a rare form of intractable epilepsy know as Lennox Gastaut Syndrome, and he also has cerebral palsy. Tyler has been through more than most of us. He had a VNS (vagus nerve stimulator) implanted age at 9, emergency Corpus Callosotomy (for those of you who
The Selmeski family moved to Colorado in November of 2013 from East Tennessee so their young daughter with intractable epilepsy, Maggie, could legally try cannabinoid therapy. Back in 2013, many families moved to Colorado in search of legal cannabis. You may have heard of Pot Pilgrims or Medical Refugees? Hundreds of families relocated in search of a miracle. Back then, it was required to have Colorado residency
I have been having muscle spasms severely since I was about 15 years old. I'm now 45 so that is a long time. Most days it feels like all my muscles are going to rip off my body at any moment. I ruptured a disc in my thoracic spine in my mid 30's. T7, T8. I was told this is not common, but from all my research it is more common than doctors say. My
At the age of 57 I have lived with intractable complex partial seizures for 44 years. Neurologists have had me try most of the anticonvulsants that are made and I still take three of them. When I became persistent to my epileptologist about trying CBD he finally gave me the name 'Realm of Caring' to contact!
RoC has been a joy to work with as well as CW and my family and I thank you.
I was a hospice nurse when a work accident suddenly ended my career and altered my life drastically. It left me disabled with a spinal injury, limited mobility, and constant excruciating pain.
It seems so silly now, but I was so scared to try cannabinoid therapy. Even though I was taking opiates and benzodiazepines around the clock to manage the pain and muscle spasms.
It's silly because I had already tried EVERYTHING else, including a

This young man has lived his entire life plagued by epilepsy since he was born and will continue to do so for the rest of his life. But this is not just any epilepsy, It's UNCONTROLLED EPILEPSY, among other medical issues. Being born one month premature set the stage for so many of his issues, including epilepsy, Autism, bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety, both generalized & social. He has a
I started having episodes, as they were called back then (now known as seizures), back when I was in elementary school. I'm now 40 years old and still have epilepsy. It's a constant fight and stalker in my life, but CBD oil has given me some hope. It works far better than any of my seizure medications ever have.
At my age I have completely depleted all my options, so I am reliant on CBD
Hyrum used to have 15 or more seizures a day. Doctors tried more than 10 pharmaceuticals to try to get them to stop. Sometimes he was on up to 6 meds at a time, that made little difference to his seizure control. We were at a dead end. We just had to live with watching him seize multiple times a day, every day.
In October 2014, Hyrum had so many back to back seizures that
Our son, Eli, was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 5. He is currently 15 years old. He has had fine motor and developmental delays since he was born. He never had complete seizure control. When he approached adolescence, his seizures increased dramatically to at least one per week. We had difficulty controlling his seizures and his behavior became more and more erratic with the increased anti- seizure medications and frequent seizures. After more testing, we
I am undiagnosed. I have been fighting epilepsy, apparently, my whole life. I believe I have Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, which makes my story... interesting. I have had identified, undiagnosed "episodes" for 21 years. The impact these episodes have had on my life is only now beginning to be understood, even be myself.
Just over a month ago I was housebound, having been on disability from my job for just over a year. Being a chemical engineer
To many, this is just a kid on a bike. Simple, right?
I can remember a boy who used to be terrified to leave the house, who couldn't go to the bathroom by himself, had fits of rage and had so many seizures every day that he couldn't finish a sentence. I can remember the day he decided to get on a swing. It was just one week after we started to use CBD. It

"I am a 24-year-old male with Cerebral Palsy, and I believe certain properties of the cannabis plant help with spasticity, but I would like to do more research having to do with the brain, specifically the brains of people with CP. Unless we remove marijuana from the Schedule 1 Controlled Substance list, we cannot do this research effectively."

She was diagnosed with Generalized Idiopathic Epilepsy at the young age of 4. When we first started Charlotte's Web, she was having approximately 6 episodes a day of varying seizures. She was not responding to various pharmaceuticals with full control; they all affected her personality, as well as the seizures, turned her into a different person.
I am thrilled to say we are approaching a full year since a tonic or tonic-clonic seizure!! We just
At just three months old, little Charlotte Figi experienced her first seizure, an experience that would send her and her family on a path that would eventually change the world. Charlotte’s parents were out of options and searching for solutions. Thankfully they discovered medical cannabis. After careful research and contacts, the Figis met the Stanley Brothers. They were able to provide a high CBD extract into Charlotte’s diet, and the results were remarkable.
