Medical cannabis awareness events centered around Torreon, Mexico, celebrate the life of young epilepsy patient Emili Zoe and educate medical officials and the public on the benefits of CBD hemp oil.
Emili Zoe’s smile is infectious, but it hasn’t always been that way. When she was young, Emili was diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and West syndrome, which left her with severe, intractable seizures, sometimes up to 250 a day, hindering her development.
The pharmaceutical medication given to Emili left her tranquilized and unresponsive and caused her to uncontrollably curl her hands and feet. They robbed her of her personality and stole away her sparkling smile.
Then Emili’s family learned of other children in Mexico who had been using CBD hemp oil instead of traditional medications for their epilepsy, and with the help of HempMeds® Mexico, they began the process needed to import our CBD hemp oil products into the country.
When she was approved, Emili became one of the first patients for whom Cofepris, the Mexican health authority, has granted importation certificates for RSHO-X™, our THC-free cannabidiol hemp oil. She began taking RSHO-X™ in February, and according to her family, Emili’s personality has since blossomed, and she emerged as a happy, smiling child.
It’s now Emili Zoe’s 3rd birthday, and HempMeds® has partnered with her family to throw a celebration and fundraiser in Emili’s honor in their hometown of Torreon in Mexico. A documentary created by CMW Media recording Emili’s remarkable progress was shown. The events were held in conjunction with a conference for the country’s top neurology specialists, which was attended by Emili’s doctor, Juan Pablo Morelos.
HempMeds® Mexico partner Raul Elizalde will also be in attendance. Raul started the Por Grace Foundation after his own daughter, Grace, was diagnosed with epilepsy at a young age. After a grassroots campaign of education and awareness, Grace would become the first patient in Mexico given permission to import and use RSHO-X™.
“The word about access to our hemp oil products is quickly spreading throughout Mexico and around the world,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “It’s incredible to see a community come together to not only help a child who is suffering, but also to care enough to help create awareness of our products so people everywhere can benefit and live better lives.”
Medical Marijuana, Inc. and HempMeds® Mexico was proud to sponsor the fundraising event for Emili Zoe in the family’s city of Torreon in Mexico. Celebrations like this reaffirm that cannabis can have a positive future in Mexico and help spread the benefits CBD hemp oil like RSHO-X™ can provide for the citizens in Mexico.
Qualifying patients in Mexico interested in accessing RSHO-X™ can start the process on the HempMeds® Mexico website. Outside of Mexico, RSHO-X™ is sold as a supplement to all 50 U.S. states and over 40 countries internationally and can be found online in the Medical Marijuana, Inc. online store.
