The youngest child in a case study about the effects of hemp oil is being monitored by doctors at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora. The Nunez family lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Their daughter Amylea was born in December and almost immediately started having seizures. She was transported to Children’s Hospital Colorado and diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy.
“Her heart stopped twice on us, and that was probably the hardest part on us,” Amylea’s mother Nicole Nunez said.
Amylea was having at least 15 seizures a day. Her parents say the medicine she’s currently on can harm her liver, so the family asked the hospital monitor Amylea while they gave her Charlotte’s Web CBD oil developed by the Stanley brothers in Colorado. It doesn’t have enough THC to make people high, and it’s touted as a successful and natural treatment for seizures.
