With a look of defiance, the precocious fair-skinned, nine-month-old finagled her way out of her diaper, “No more!” she commanded. As she stretched out her little arm through the crib railings handing the wrinkled diaper over to her mother in her self-proclaimed declaration of potty readiness. In this radical act her mother understood she wasn’t raising an ordinary little girl, and the young girl didn’t know that many years later, her second son would rely

Announcement from US Hemp Roundtable:
“American farmers, small businesspeople, and consumers have enthusiastically embraced the recent introduction of The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 which would permanently legalize hemp. Thanks to the efforts of Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and a bi-partisan array of supporters, including Sen.

Our center was created to serve the needs and interests of children in mixed-age groups and at different stages of development. We ask ourselves what the children in our care need, what their families value, and how the community would benefit. We focus on learning through long-term exploratory projects and the care of the “whole” child. Physical development, social interactions, emotional balance, as well as cognitive needs being equally important in the life of a
Ezra’s story is an incredible one, to say the least. This little boy has been through more than most adults will ever imagine in a lifetime.

He also has dystonia, chronic pain, muscle spasms, chronically dislocated hips, osteopenia, bilateral amblyopia, scoliosis, possible metabolic disorder, gastroparesis, GERD, and multiple food
Jason is a retired Army Veteran who has been deployed overseas several times. He suffered a traumatic brain injury in a bombing and has since dealt with depression, anxiety, PTSD and severe pain.
VA doctors were quick to heavily sedate him with an army of pharmaceutical drugs including medications for pain, depression, and anxiety. Once these pills took effect, Jason started gaining a lot of weight, his anger increased,
Zaki has a very rare form of epilepsy called Doose syndrome. On top of many, many seizures, he has autism and his development has been delayed. He had 6 different types of seizures resulting in hundreds of thousands of seizures in his short life. Zaki was receiving hospice palliative care prior to cannabinoid therapy after his family tried 17 different pharmaceuticals, all of which failed him.
The Brown family are natives of Colorado and Tyler has suffered from debilitating seizures since the age of 7 from a rare form of intractable epilepsy know as Lennox Gastaut Syndrome, and he also has cerebral palsy.

The Selmeski family moved to Colorado in November of 2013 from East Tennessee so their young daughter with intractable epilepsy, Maggie, could legally try cannabinoid therapy. Back in 2013, many families moved to Colorado in search of legal cannabis. You may have heard of Pot Pilgrims or Medical Refugees? Hundreds of families relocated in search of a miracle. Back then, it was required to have Colorado residency
Vivacious, ebullient, sparkling, high-spirited, bubbly, effervescent, big-hearted, sharp-witted, upbeat, passionate, and enthusiastic are just some of the adjectives that come to mind when I think of our part-time Care Specialist, Kris. We all look forward to Fridays because we are touched by her unequivocal, spirited presence and her laughter that echoes the hallways.
It is of no surprise to me that her mug is a “Happy” snoopy… did I mention that Kris is forever young??

I have been having muscle spasms severely since I was about 15 years old. I'm now 45 so that is a long time. Most days it feels like all my muscles are going to rip off my body at any moment. I ruptured a disc in my thoracic spine in my mid 30's. T7, T8. I was told this is not common, but from all my research it is more common than doctors say. My
At the age of 57 I have lived with intractable complex partial seizures for 44 years. Neurologists have had me try most of the anticonvulsants that are made and I still take three of them. When I became persistent to my epileptologist about trying CBD he finally gave me the name 'Realm of Caring' to contact!
RoC has been a joy to work with as well as CW and my family and I thank you.
I was a hospice nurse when a work accident suddenly ended my career and altered my life drastically. It left me disabled with a spinal injury, limited mobility, and constant excruciating pain.
It seems so silly now, but I was so scared to try cannabinoid therapy. Even though I was taking opiates and benzodiazepines around the clock to manage the pain and muscle spasms.
It's silly because I had already tried EVERYTHING else, including a
