CBD Update - First EEG Since Taking CBD Oil
Today was a big visit for Carly. She had her first EEG since being put on CBD Oil. To be in the study Carly had to have a recent EEG submitted and that was done a few months ago. They compared that EEG to the one she had today and the Dr. Bebin said there was "definite improvement"!! That's very big news. Not only are we seeing it in person, her EEG is now proof that CBD Oil works and, in my opinion it's documented. I am not saying Carly now has a "normal" EEG but that there is improvement.
Since being on CBD Carly has seen a reduction of seizures (Myoclonic Jerks from 200-300 per day to 2-10 per day), No Tonic Clonic's and cognitive ability improvement which has been documented with video I have posted on this blog.
While this is a blessing for Carly, I know of many families with children and adults that are not seeing improvement and a few that have been taken out of the study. As we all know this is medicine and like any other medicine, what works for some may not work for others. I pray continually for those children and adults that haven't seen positive results. Though it may not work for everybody I am a firm believer that everyone deserves the right to use CBD Oil regardless of disorder. People have the right to see if this improves their condition and quality of life.
I think it's important to remember the Carly's Law study is paving the way for more doctors to be able to stand behind proof they are now seeing to get this to the masses. Though they may turn painfully slow, I think the wheels are starting to move.
