Haleigh’s Hope is proof of what CBD can do for patients in need. It is inspired out of Haleigh’s plight from cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Furthermore, the 4-year-old was not reacting well to the five potent drugs that were needed to control the hundreds of seizures she experienced. At times, her mother said she would quit breathing several times a day. Until finally, doctors said that the child would only live to see less than three months.
Upon hearing this, Haleigh’s mother Janea Cox decided to move to Colorado. The state had legalized medical marijuana and Cox had heard of a strain that might help alleviate some of her daughter’s pain. After consulting with a doctor, the family sought Jason Cranford who had produced CBD enriched medicinal marijuana with CBD to THC ratio of 24:1.
Since Haleigh underwent a cannabis oil regimen, Janea noticed the child smiling for the first time after three years. It was this glimpse of hope that finally placed marijuana’s medicinal potential under national and international spotlight. Not only that, it pushed for a bill legalizing marijuana.
After years of treatment and taking other medical strides, Haleigh is now better than before. She continues to be the face of hope after finding reprieve from a line of oils and tinctures. This revolutionary product is sold everywhere and caters to 40 countries worldwide.
