CBD Oil Credited With Saving Life of Boy With Severe Epilepsy

Eleven-year-old Billy Caldwell almost didn’t make it to his 12th birthday. He was having upwards of 100 life-threatening seizures every day caused by severe epilepsy.

Since beginning treatment with CBD oil, Billy’s health has improved drastically. In fact, CBD oil is being credited with saving Billy’s life.

Before beginning treatment with CBD, no matter what changes were made to Billy’s diet or medication, his seizures remained frequent and unpredictable. Billy’s epilepsy was intractable and his condition was life-threatening.

In June 2016, Billy’s mom took him to an epilepsy center in Los Angeles. Doctors at the center found an inoperable lesion on the left temporal lobe of Billy’s brain. Left with no other options, his doctors referred him to a medical cannabis specialist in the United States. Eight months into his treatment with CBD oil Billy’s seizures stopped completely. Billy has now passed 300 days without having a seizure.

Billy also suffers from autism. Billy’s mom, Ms. Caldwell, says, “His eye contact has got really good, he used to have to wear special needs boots to support his ankles, but now he is wearing trainers. For some parents, this wouldn’t be a big deal but for us it was massive. His balance and his walking is so much better, he can now go up and down steps whereas before he couldn’t do that, his concentration has got much better, before he couldn’t concentrate for long.”

Billy has now gone more than 10 months without a seizure, making him the new poster child for CBD.
