Suffering from seizures since two months old, Emili Zoe was diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut and West syndromes. The effects of her seizures and tumors were severe, but worse were the effects of the medications meant to offer relief. Emili’s parents discovered cannabidiol (CBD) oil through a charity called the Por Grace Foundation. The therapy immediately stopped the seizures and restored her quality of life, while highlighting the potential for CBD-based therapeutics in treating a variety of conditions.
Until recently, having access to CBD in Mexico was limited. Once Emili’s family was able to legally access a form of cannabis oil high in CBD and low in THC, they began to see a reduction in her seizures and a more happy and responsive Emili.
Having been influenced by the drug policies of the U.S. since marijuana was placed on the D.E.A.’s list of Schedule 1 narcotics, Mexico is beginning to follow the trend toward legalization taking place in several states and reassess its own war on drugs. The decision to allow the import of RSHO-X™ began with lobbying efforts by a couple of families whose children suffered from otherwise untreatable diseases. Since then, Medical Marijuana, Inc. established its HempMeds® Mexico subsidiary and initiated an educational tour to highlight the many potential benefits of cannabidiol (CBD). The government’s shift has now expanded access to RSHO-X™ to a number of other individuals suffering from medical conditions that don’t respond to other therapeutics. Earlier this year, the Mexico Supreme Court indicated that legalization in Mexico could be happening in the near future.
“[We believe] that full legalization of all cannabis products may soon be a reality within Mexico,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “Regardless of any near-term additional regulatory decisions, our Company is honored to be the first distributor to Mexico of cannabis-based products to families that have been awarded government import permits. We applaud this first step forward by the regulators to allow our product and the great efforts of Mexican lawmakers for acting on behalf of the welfare of the Mexican people.”
