May 14, 2015 (San Diego) - Sadie Higuera, of San Diego, California turned two years old earlier this month-- a birthday her family and doctors feared would never happen because of the hundreds of seizures she was suffering daily.
"Anybody who saw her in her first 2 months of life, versus her 8 month of life, they're like wow," said Sadie's father, Brian Higuera. Sadie is currently taking daily doses of Cannabanoid (CBD) oil, or RSHO, from the company HempMeds.
"In addition to diminishing the seizures to near zero, Higuera says the CBD oil appears to reduce tumors," Higuera said. "A tumor that started on Sadie's liver was gone after six months on CBD."
Sadie's doctors credit the CBD oil for saving her life.
"While on multiple pharmaceutical drugs, Sadie was suffering hundreds of seizures per week and was having dangerous side effects," said Dr. Mark L. Rabe of the Central Wellness clinic of San Diego. "Now off the drugs -- and with treatment that is high in the non-psychoactive cannabinoid -- Sadie is almost seizure free."
The family celebrated with a birthday party at home, followed by a trip to Disneyland.
