On April 2nd, the first sign of trouble began for Annalise Lujan. She was competing in gymnastics, when her body seemed to just break down. She was diagnosed with a rare disorder that causes uncontrollable seizures known as Febrile Infection-Related Epilepsy Syndrome (F.I.R.E.S.).
Annalise was then airlifted to Phoenix Children’s Hospital and treated with CBD oil, which is non-psychoactive and does not create a “high”. Within 48 hours, her seizures had virtually completely stopped. Annalise’s mother, Maryann, now says, “CBD oil saved her life”.
A study from The National Institute of Health says:
“CBD is anticonvulsant in many acute animal models but there is limited data in chronic models. The antiepileptic mechanisms of CBD are not known, but may include effects on the equilibrative nucleoside transporter; the orphan G-protein-coupled receptor GPR55; the transient receptor potential of melastatin type 8 channel; the 5-HT1a receptor; the α3 and α1 glycine receptors; and the transient receptor potential of ankyrin type 1 channel….CBD appears to be well tolerated in humans but small and methodologically limited studies of CBD in human epilepsy have been inconclusive.”
It would be safe to say that Annalise probably doesn’t care much about why or how the CBD works, just as long as her seizures don’t occur like they were before. Annalise is now back home, with her family, where she belongs. She and her family know that the road ahead will not be easy, but know that when there is a will, there is a way.
As Maryann recounts how quickly F.I.R.E.S. changed Annalise’s life, she said: “One day, she was just a healthy young lady, going to school, participating in her community and her gymnastics, and the next day - fighting for her life.” Annalise simply says, “It’s just like a miracle I made it”. They now have a GoFund me account to help with her medical and rehab bills.
