TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY TO 45 YEAR OLD WOMAN HEALING WITH CANNABIDIOL(CBD)

Last year I did an initial intake on a 44 year old woman. She had been in a horrible car accident and suffered traumatic brain injury. Her memory was severely compromised and overall function was challenging. She found taking care of her two children had become very difficult.

A year ago, she was started on just 15 mg of Whole Plant CBD daily. Within two days her memory and overall function were beginning to improve.

She recently came in for a follow up visit. For the past two months, having difficulty obtaining CBD, she stopped it. Her anxiety increased, as expected, but her overall brain function has remained at a level significantly better than last year. She attends a local hospital Memory Clinic and Memory Therapy. I still need to get the results of the reports, but the patient looks and acts almost like a different person. She appears much more “together”, calmer and was able to focus, AND she has been off CBD for a couple of months.

Could the CBD actually helped “heal” her brain injury? I don’t know, but something significant happened.

My intention is to obtain copies of all reports and speak with the Memory Therapists.

Very Exciting!!
