Epidiolex has been approved by the FDA so can be prescribed as per normal process.

My friends daughter had no benefit with CBD isolate medicine. The medicine she is administered has THC, THCA and THCN as prominent cannabinoids and has given her a quality of life that she had never known, she was actually discharged out from under the care of the Children’s Hospital neurology department, back to her local family doctor, because for the first time in her life, her seizures are under control.
She has now been on medicine with THC for seven years and she has not had any negative side-effects or impacts. When you take it regularly the intoxicating affect lessons more and more as your body gets used to it. The THCA is known to have anti-inflammatory properties so we’re not sure if this along with her general better health is responsible for her increased mobility, but for the first time in her life she is now pulling herself up to stand, trying to walk…… i’m not a warm fuzzy emotional kind of person but even that brought tears to my eyes ….

Hi @lhoward
I am very happy to hear that the medication with THC, THCA and THCN is working well for your friend’s daughter and that it has improved her life quality a lot!!! Reading your post, I have just remembered the story of a daughter’s renowned chef (Henrique Fogaça) here in Brazil. In February 2020 with the treatment based on medical cannabis and ketogenic diet, her daughter Olivia could stand alone for the first time (she was 13 years old at that time)! The story of Olivia and her progress is very touching as well!
I remember that my first doctor who prescribed me medical cannabis has said that people can respond differently to THC. I have tried medical cannabis with a higher dosage of THC and I did not feel well. My mother, on the other hand, has taken the same medication (she used it for neuropathic pain due to her monoclonal gammopathy) and has adapted very well.
Again, I believe there is still much to be studied and discovered about medical cannabis!
Have a great weekend!
