12- year old Cyndimae Meehan suffers from Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy that causes a child to have up to 100 seizures a day. In this YouTube video, her mother is seen administering cannabis oil to the inside of Cyndimae's lower lip during a seizure.
By giving Cyndimae the oil in that location, it gets the oil into the bloodstream faster. Every second counts when seizures lead to breathing problems and the child starts turning blue.
Within seconds of getting the cannabis oil into her bloodstream, Cyndimae's seizure stops in its tracks, and she returns to normal in a matter of seconds, even smiling and talking to her mom.
It's another real world case study showing the power of cannabis oil. Desperate parents across the country who are trying to save their children have faced an uphill battle trying to get medical marijuana legislation passed.
Stories (and videos) like this one continue to open people's eyes to the power of cannabis. Hopefully, it'll lead to significant changes this November.
