12-year old Annalise Lujan first started experiencing her seizures when at a gymnastics meet. She was rushed to a hospital and diagnosed with Febrile Infection-Related Epilepsy Syndrome (FIRES). After a crippling seizure left her in a coma, Annalise’s mother started looking for new treatment options. A cannabis-derived drug called cannabid oil (CBD) has been used in other medical treatments and was used by Annalise’s doctors to treat her one in a million condition. Less than 48 hours after treatment, Annalise was cured of her constant seizures and came out of her coma. While not a cure, CBD oil provides a hopeful alternative for the millions of Americans who struggle with epilepsy.
