Eli Wooton’s family was running out of hope. Five-year-old Eli suffered from a rare form of severe epilepsy that left him with no quality of life. He couldn’t talk or even get through an entire day without a dozen seizures. At one time, Eli had up to 70-80 seizures in 12 hours. Often, he would even stop breathing during his seizures. In one year alone, Eli made 25 trips to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Five of those times he had to be transported by Life Flight. For Eli and his family, there was no light at the end of the tunnel. No medicine or medical treatment could ever cure Eli’s epilepsy.
That was until Eli’s family got the call from Green Remedy. VP of Farm Development, Chad Wilson, heard Eli’s story and knew CBD could help.
Green Remedy is a Louisville based hemp CBD company established in 2014. CBD comes from a hemp cannabis plant and is 100% legal. Unlike marijuana, CBD oil has no psychoactive effects due to much lower levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) at .3% or less. CBD works with the body through the endocannabinoid system (ECS) that regulates the body’s normal homeostasis or general state of balance. It comes in a variety of forms including droppers, balms, capsules, and roll-ons.
Hemp is a renewable resource that can be used to make food, fuel, and fiber. It also has helped numerous people with a variety of ailments. Studies have shown that CBD may help with pain and inflammation reduction, anxiety relief, sleep, immune system health, and more.
CBD was the relief that Eli and his family so desperately needed. Two days after taking Green Remedy, Eli said his first words at five and a half years old. Best of all, his seizures stopped. Two years later, Eli hasn’t had a seizure since the first day he took Green Remedy.
Green Remedy CBD has helped save Eli’s life. Eli’s father, Ricky Wooton, says all Eli wants to do now is play football. Green Remedy CBD has helped give Eli a normal life.
