Laura Weightman has had to watch her daughter Abigail endure crippling seizures for the majority of her life because she suffers from Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy.
The family has tried at least 14 different medications in an effort to seek some remedy for Abigail from those seizures, but nothing has worked for them.
Laura now says that cannabis oil has helped to drastically change her daughters life, after she got involved in the study. She alleges that the oil has helped to greatly improve the quality of life for her daughter, when nothing else seemed to work for them.
It's estimated that Abigail has had between 8-10 seizures per month, but since she has been involved in the study that number has been drastically reduced.
Laura is simply amazed at what the cannabis oil has done for her daughter, and she joins many other parents globally who have also found healing with cannabis oil or cbd oil, when they thought that nothing else would work.
The study that Abigail was involved in has been conducted at the Toronto SickKids Hospital and it's been sponsored by a medical cannabis company known as Tilray. The study had involved 19 participants who took part in a 20-week intervention.
“Mean dose achieved was 13.3 mg/kg/day of CBD (range 7–16 mg/kg/day) and 0.27 mg/kg/day of THC (range 0.14–0.32 mg/kg/day)."
The results from that study were recently published in Annals of Clinical And Translational Neurology.
Researchers concluded that there was significant improvement with regard to quality of life for those who were involved in the study.
