CBD is one of many natural compounds found in the hemp plant, known collectively as cannabinoids. It is a natural organic non-psychoactive cannabinoid currently showing promising results in studies all around the world.
It is known to help with, in many cases, startling results: chronic pain, depression, insomnia, stress, epilepsy, panic attacks, migraine, Parkinsonâ€™s, MS, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, sciatica, arthritis, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis and reduces general inflammation in the body.
It first came to light in Ireland when tireless epilepsy campaigner Vera Twomey first fought for the medicine for her daughter Ava, a sufferer of Dravet Syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy.
Twomey spoke to JOE about how she and her daughter found peace when the eight-year-old was finallyÂ granted access to the medical cannabis that would prevent her from suffering life-threatening seizures.
“This current medication was prescribed by a consultant, and is keeping her alive. Weâ€™ve been fighting to get Avaâ€™s seizures under control for eight years.Â We can’t give away such a blessing.”
