LA Weekly has recently detailed a story about the first-ever import permit granted by Mexico for the cannabidiol (CBD) oil product for a young girl named Alina Maldonado Montes de Oca, who was suffering from hypoxia, which was causing 25-40 seizures a day. Her father fought to bring CBD to her when he read about a case in the United States that was successfully treated with the oil product.
Working with another family that was dealing with hypoxia, they managed to overcome taboo about marijuana. There are still restrictions on the product. As they note in the article, "all imports must be free of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and contain no psychoactive properties."
Hempmeds is currently treating 1500 families with epileptic children in Brazil, where they were also given a permit to provide care. They are hoping to provide more service
