11-year-old Billy Caldwell is the very first person to be treated with cannabis oil on the NHS and the results have proven to be remarkable.

Billy’s epilepsy had not responded to regular medicine and at one point he was experiencing up to 30 life-threatening seizures a month.

He began cannabis oil treatment in the US, before the prescription was transferred to his local GP in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.

It’s important to note, this medicinal CBD oil doesn’t have the chemical Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which causes the ‘high’ experienced by recreational marijuana users.
