Houston 10 Year Old Begins Legal Marijuana Oil Treatment for Epilepsy

Canna

James Challenger is among the first to obtain medical marijuana oil in the Houston area for his epilepsy. Challenger is just 10-years-old and started his regimen on March 20. The youngster was suffering from 100 or more seizures daily as well as taking 15 pills a day.

The Challengers have noticed major changes in James since starting the oil regimen, according to Chron. The family is spending about $200 per week on James’ oil. They say it’s well worth the cost.

Michael Challenger said, “We saw a drastic improvement in him. His face lit up. His personality lit up. He is much happier. I can show you school records of just horrible marks, to now where we haven’t had one bad mark since we started the medicine on a Tuesday afternoon.”

Jose Hidalgo of Knox Medical said, “For Texans suffering from intractable epilepsy, the wait for medical cannabis is finally over.”
