As a two-year-old epileptic, Kyla Williams suffers up to 200 seizures a day.
Her Summerland family was told there was no medical solution, but they searched the Internet and found that cannabis oil could control her seizures – despite the fact Health Canada doesn’t approve its use.
Grandmother Elaine Nuessler and grandfather Chris Nuessler – a retired RCMP officer – have taken up the cause to make cannabis products legal for medical use.
We also speak with expert Dr. Jonathan Page of Anandia Labs, a UBC adjunct professor in botany who sequenced the cannabis genome.
