Cannabis Oil Saves a 6-Year Old Girl’s Life

A six-year-old girl from Birmingham was saved by cannabis oil. This hit headlines across the UK last October 3, backing the use of medical cannabis treatments.  Jayla Agbonlahor, in fact, is the youngest person with legal supervision to use weed in the UK.

The parents of Jayla finally received the go-ahead on 2015 from UK officials to treat their daughter with cannabis oil. Jayla’s mother, Louise Bostock, has to purchase it from Holland since cannabis is illegal in UK.

Doctors has already told Bostock that Jayla may likely die at a young age before 2015. Just days after her birth, Jayla was back at the hospital for having stopped breathing. Jayla often suffered from severe seizures when she was an infant.

She also had problems eating and drinking, as well as difficulty in walking and talking. All of these led to Jayla’s visit to the hospital every three to four weeks.

Doctors first thought that Jayla has a rare form of epilepsy. However, more tests ruled out epilepsy. Until now, she still lives with an undiagnosed brain condition.

Doctors were unsure what was wrong with Jayla, and traditional treatments were proving ineffective. That’s when Jayla’s mother began researching medical cannabis oil.

Bostock started discreetly treating her with cannabis oil when Jayla turned four. The doctors were completely dismayed when they found out. Of course, that was illegal. Bostock, being a mother, observed that Jayla’s condition was improving. This is thanks to the cannabis oil treatments.

Sources stated that Jayla was experiencing fewer seizures. She even improved her eating and sleeping. Nevertheless, Bostock had to undergo a police investigation with this illegal use of cannabis. After all, marijuana is a “Class-B” drug in the UK.

Bostock gained legal access to treat her daughter with cannabis after this.

Although Jayla is still in serious and undetermined condition, her family hopes that the medical cannabis oil will be legalized in the UK. Jayla’s family implores the National Health Service to use her case as a basis for authorizing medical cannabis as a legal form of treatment.

The therapeutic benefits of medical cannabis to treat illness are being noticed, especially for neurological disorders. Research has shown that cannabis (or Cannabidiol)  can repair damaged nerves. It can also reduce seizure frequency and severity. It also protect brain cells from some diseases.
