CBD Oil Tincture Trial: Days 10-12

Hello World! It has been an interesting few days. To explain, I will have to give some background. If you aren’t familiar with cerebral palsy, you may not know that it’s a spectrum, in a sense. It is a blanket term for brain damage that shows one (or some combination) of a few different sets […]

CBD Oil Tincture Trial: Day 9

Hello World! Today, I was taking notice of a few things Gideon enjoys—vestibular input and extension. As pictured, that is Gideon in extension. This is typically the only way he is able to maneuver his body. Now, with more laxity, he bends much further back comfortably. In a similar vein, he is still getting in […]

CBD Oil Tincture Trial: Day 4

  Last night, for the first time in a week or so, we put on one of Gideon’s braces that we alternate nightly (when on schedule). We waited for him to seem comfortable enough with the CBD to begin to use these again. We do not want to overwhelm him in any way. These braces […]

Hello World! Gideon is doing well settling into this dosage. He is still loose and learning to adjust to his newly-acquired mobility. While it is not where we want to peak regarding his muscle tone, it is a great starting place to allow him to adjust. For those of you who do not know Gideon’s […]

CBD Oil Tincture Trial: Day 1

As many of you might know, Gideon was on CBD oil earlier this year. From May 24, 2017 through July 20, 2017, Gideon did a trial using BioCBDPlus, 10mg twice a day. We saw results with his muscular spasticity, a complication of cerebral palsy. For a while, we no longer had access to CBD. Sadly, […]

Choosing the home of Serenity Valley Hemp Co.

Choosing the home of Serenity Valley Hemp Co.

Looking over the horizon at the orphan land, This Land, our dreams began to unfold before my eyes. I saw rows of hemp and a hempcrete house. Bamboo encircled the seasonal lake, bringing water home permanently. I saw cows proudly pooping, I mean, fertilizing the land during the off-season with chickens hitching rides on their […]

Gideon’s Garden and CBD for Seizure Disorders

Epilepsy has many forms. There are many pharmaceutical drugs available to help epileptics cope. Some people take one medication while others juggle two or more. As Gideon’s mother and advocate, I have been on quite the journey. Gideon was initially prescribed Keppra to manage his seizure disorder. Immediately, I looked up the full prescribing label. […]
