2-year-old Zaraiah Crouch used to experience anywhere between 75 to 150 seizures a day. Her epilepsy medications eventually stopped working, so doctors upped the dose causing serious side effects. The drugs made her lethargic and unable to do therapy consistently.
“During that time if she’s knocked out, she’s not learning anything, you know, she’s not able to be awake to learn the things that she should be, you know, learning through therapy,” Bailey-Bryant said.
Her grandparents then learned about cannabidiol. They now give Zaraiah two doses of hemp oil a day, which has low levels of the chemical THC.
“She’s sitting straight up, you know, she’s reaching, grabbing things,” said grandfather and legal guardian, Jeremy Bryant.
