LEAF LIFE – SHOW #1 (re-run) – SEATTLE
CANNABIS AS MEDICINE:
The new frontier for people of all ages
As we close in on Show #100, this cornerstone achievement has us all feeling very positive about the next 100 yet to come! And at the same time, we have to address the unfortunate news of the passing of Miracle Maddie who was born with an extremely rare terminal genetic disease called Zellweger Syndrome . Maddie’s ballast of a mother, Meagan, was a guest on our very first podcast where she expressed her intentions of providing the best life for her daughter through Cannabis. With a life expectancy of only 1 year, Maddie lived to be 6 years old. The only medication administered at the end of her life was Cannabis. Cannabis allowed her to be 641 days seizure free, 350 days opiate free, and 1,141 days no benzodiazepines. In all, she had gone from 26 pharmaceutical medications at the beginning of her life to just Cannabis. Maddie was a warrior. Someone you never knew, but can learn valuable knowledge from to better appreciate your own journey. And in her honor, we have decided to post Show #1 as a tribute.
FROM FIRST RUN OF SHOW
This is the premier Leaf Life episode, so why not approach one of the most elementary, yet vital discussions around the world of medicine today? For thousands of years this amazing plant has been used for health and wellness for all ages and as recently as the 1900’s could be found in the majority of over the counter medicines—until that all changed with criminalization. In today’s world, however, parents have found it to be hugely beneficial for children with a range of conditions from cancer to seizure disorders to autism. Today Cannabis use can still trigger Child Protective Services in illegal states to seize children, while in legal states THC and CBD are helping keep children healthy and seizure free. In this episode, we explore full plant Cannabis medicine and who it can benefit while gaining the imperative perspective of a mother who credits her daughter’s survival to the plant.
