Patient Success Stories

Medical cannabis and CBD are helping to improve the lives of those with qualifying conditions and their families. From a place of torment and pain to hope and relief, medicine from Compassionate Cultivation is changing lives for the better. Continue below to see and hear just a sample of the amazing success our patients are experiencing.

JULIA: From Incurable To Independent

On April 15, 2008, I began the day a normal kindergartner. But by midnight that night, I had been life-flighted and on a ventilator. The journey thereafter consisted of 4 surgeries including brain surgery, a very strict ketogenic diet, and dozens of medications with terrible side effects.

For ten years, my family and I woke up each day just finding a way to deal with this new reality. None of the medicines were really working to stop the seizures. And I started to wonder if I’ll ever get to do the things all kids should be able to: focus on school, go to the dance, drive a car.

Then, my doctor introduced me to medical CBD. Watch the video to see what happens next…

GABRIEL: From Disability to Delight

Gabriel has had to deal with more than most adults do in a lifetime. He has intractable Epilepsy along with Autism, ADHD, sensory processing disorder, Chiari Malformation, and intellectual disability.

Gabriel was diagnosed with Epilepsy at age 2 and in the last few years has been on every anti-seizure med and every combination of prescriptions available to him. Those drugs produced no decline in seizure activity, and things were actually getting worse. On a bad day, he could have up to 30 seizures, leaving him so tired and debilitated that it was impossible to live a normal life.

On November 7, 2018, Gabe’s mother began using medical cannabis from Compassionate Cultivation for her son’s condition. She remarks,

“In 3 weeks I could see a significant change in his seizure activity and by January his seizures had all but subsided. He has only had 6 major seizures since November and is becoming more of the boy he was meant to be. He plays and laughs and is a joy to all that know him… it turned out to be the best decision I ever made for my son.”

FREEMAN: From Seizures to Schoolkid

I am 13 and have had intractable epilepsy since I was 3. I’ve been on multiple medicines, failing most. My usual pattern was 1-2 grand mal seizures per night. Last year, it spiraled out of control. So many that some days I couldn’t keep count of them. At one point, I couldn’t leave my bed, because that was the safest place for me. All I wanted to be was a normal kid… to go to school, play sports, and have fun like everyone else.

Then, my doctor introduced me to medical CBD. Watch the video to see what happens next…

IAN: From Wheelchair to Walking

Ian used to have 10 seizures or more a day, and they were delaying his motor-skills development. Before he started a medical CBD regimen, he could not walk, gaining mobility through use of a wheelchair. Ian also had food-texture issues, only tolerating baby food, applesauce, and yogurt.

Since Ian has been using Compassionate Cultivation’s medical CBD, he is now walking on his own with a walker. He tolerates food textures much better and is eating a wider range of foods. He is learning like crazy. Best of all, he is an alert and happy boy.

CALLEN: From Closed-off to Communicating

Callen is eight years old and lives with his family in Lockhart, Texas. He has been diagnosed with ADHD, asthma, autism, hypotonia and intellectual disability, and he experiences both absence seizures (formerly known as petit mal) and tonic seizures.

Since beginning his treament with medical CBD, Callen has been nearly seizure-free. He has seen an increase in speech and his use of his sign language. He seems to be able to comprehend and navigate social situations better as well. Callen’s mom, C.J., proclaims, “CBD has allowed my non-verbal child to say the words ‘I Love You!'”
