Cherese LeBlanc is the mother of Kayla, a 14-year-old who was born with a brain anomaly. As a result, Kayla has something known as bilateral perisylvian syndrome, which causes epilepsy and cerebral palsy, among other things. Kayla regularly experiences seizures, as many as 60 per day, according to Cherese. After trying numerous methods to reduce the seizures, Cherese decided to try medical marijuana tinctures with CBD and some THC. After a few months, the medical cannabis has reduced Kayla's seizures by half, to about 30 per day. Cherese hopes that one day, she can get Kayla completely off her conventional medications, and advocates for her daughter and other children with special needs.
