Moms seem to be taking up cudgels on behalf of their children who need access to medical cannabis. One such mom is fighting to keep her daughter alive, becoming a medical marijuana activist in Kentucky. All she is asking for is non-psychoactive CBD oil for Crohn’s disease. How can anyone deny her that?
When your daughter is at death’s door, you’ll do anything
To those of us who enjoy good health, it is absolutely unthinkable that a 17-year-old girl has had to have her colon and rectum removed and is on life support because she is denied medical marijuana. Cincinnati.com covered this unbelievable tragedy.
Tiffany Wigginton Carnal, the mother of Lyndi Carnal (17), has a very tragic story to tell the world, but she believes this had to happen for her to fight for her daughter and others who are suffering unnecessarily.
Lyndi was diagnosed in 2014 with Crohn’s disease, an illness of the digestive system caused by inflammation of the lining of the digestive tract. This very painful illness causes severe diarrhea, abdominal pain, malnutrition, and fatigue.
The prescription drugs Lyndi was given to control the Crohn’s impacted negatively on her heart, kidneys, and liver. She spent the last two months on life support, and will still be in the hospital for the next two months. Her colon and rectum have been removed.
A heart-wrenching outcome
The medication to control the pain has kept Lyndi sedated and unable to function at all. One of the painkillers is a very strong and highly addictive opioid.
How different could things have been for Lyndi? After Tiffany started doing her own research and discovered CBD oil for Crohn’s has worked for patients in states where medical marijuana is allowed, she has started to contact state representatives. The Senate Bill 13, introduced by Sen. Perry Clark in 2016 wasn’t even considered. A new bill, the Cannabis Freedom Act, will be presented to the legislature in 2017. Its authors hope to legalize medical marijuana in the state.

Parents become advocates
Carnal is lobbying for the bill to be passed; she is highly frustrated by the fact that she can’t give Lyndi a natural oil to relieve her pain. It won’t even make her high because it has too little THC for that. She says it’s odd that she can’t do that, but she can give her daughter drugs that are literally killing her. There has to be a way this can change; the law must change, she says.
Tiffany says Lyndi has come this far. She has survived till now, and there is a reason. That reason is not for her to spend the rest of her life in a hospital. Her mom is going to fight with all she has to ensure Lyndi can get a natural treatment that will heal her gently.
CBD oil for Crohn’s
CBD oil for Crohn’s is on the list of qualifying conditions in many states where medical marijuana is legal. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD oil, one of the non-psychotropic cannabinoids in industrial hemp, also relieve pain and, according to numerous accounts, has been successful as a treatment for Crohn’s.
Once the bill is passed, let’s wish Lyndi a speedy recovery, and congratulate Tiffany on finding a solution. Like any mother, she’s not about to give up on her daughter.
