For nine years, Heather Jackson’s son Zaki basically lived as a toddler. Zaki’s epilepsy caused nearly nonstop seizures, rendering him incontinent and totally dependent on his mother. Today, his health has taken a complete turn for the better, thanks to an elixir called Charlotte’s Web.
That’s the name of a strain of medical marijuana being used to treat children with epilepsy. Jackson turned to the marijuana oil out of “sheer necessity” after countless attempts to help her son — which included 17 pharmaceuticals, craniosacral therapy and chiropractic adjustments, among others — failed to make a difference.
Zaki’s seizures started when he was 4 months old and completely took over his life.
