Treatment May Help in Ailment That Causes Chronic Seizures in Children
A recent Wall Street Journal article featured one of our clients, Jacel Delgadillo seeking treatment for her son Bruno, who suffers with severe seizures caused by a rare form of epilepsy. She is hoping that new legislation will make medical marijuana available for her son’s treatment. The proposed legislation may provide a new option for the marijuana extract called cannabidiol, or CBD.
According to the article, “The substance, which doesn’t produce a high and can be taken orally in an oil form, has been embraced by parents whose children, like Bruno, suffer from Dravet syndrome, which occurs in about one of every 30,000 births. The condition begins in infancy and can cause hundreds of seizures a day, developmental delays and even death.”
