A young man from Lycoming County in Pennsylvania is seeing some improvements in his health thanks to CBD oil, a product derived from marijuana.
18-year-old Andrew Kriebel can’t talk or walk on his own. He has diabetes, cerebral palsy, and has suffered from seizures since he was just 1 year old.
His family is still finding ways to give their son the best life possible. Recently, that’s included trying CBD, or cannabidiol, an active ingredient found in marijuana.
The family has seen some improvements. Thanks in part to CBD, Andrew has had fewer seizures.
“It is a liquid CBD cannabinoid that we squirt in his mouth twice a day,” Andrew’s Dad, Dean, explained. “With this and the combination of the other drugs, his life and our lives have drastically improved for the better.”
