For the First Time Ever, Cannabis Oil Will Be Used in a Hospital … To Save a 2-Month-Old Baby Girl

In December, Nicole and Ernie Nunez brought their beautiful baby girl, Amylea, into the world. However, when they brought her home, things quickly took a turn for the worst.

“About a day after we went home from delivery is when she had her first seizure,” Nicole said. “She has a rare form of epilepsy. They don’t know exactly the type.”


For the past two months, the Nunez family has been desperately trying to treat their daughter’s condition. Doctors in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the family is from, were unable to find a cause and unable to treat young Amylea. So, the family has fled to Colorado.

Nicole stays at the hospital in Aurora while Ernie drives back and forth to take care of the couple’s other children and to work.

At the Children’s Hospital in Aurora, doctors continued the drug cocktail in an attempt to stop the horrible seizures, but these medications are not without side-effects.

“The medication she’s on is hard for her liver, and so we’re trying to do something different that’s not so bad on her body,” Ernie said, explaining why the couple has decided to use cannabis oil.

When the family heard about the seemingly miraculous effects of the cannabis oil known as Charlotte’s Web, they became hopeful and set out to get it for their daughter.

Charlotte’s Web is a strain of cannabis named after a young girl, Charlotte Figi, whose life it quite literally saved. Charlotte had her first seizure when she was three months old. Over the next few months, she had frequent seizures lasting two to four hours, and she was hospitalized repeatedly.

But her parents found a strain of cannabis that turned their daughter’s suffering completely around. Since then, countless other children have had their lives saved by this amazing plant.

This week, doctors finally agreed to let the cannabis oil into the hospital to treat Amylea.

“For us to get the approval for us to administer it while she in the NICU while she’s a patient…it’s kind of like a miracle,” Nicole said. “Because they were completely against it saying, ‘No you can’t do it, you have to wait until she’s an out-patient.”

Even though the doctors gave the approval to treat Amylea with the oil, they won’t administer it to her, so the family has done it themselves.

Amylea has only had a handful of doses, but her parents say the nurses have already noticed a positive change.

According to the family, Amylea is the first and youngest patient to ever receive cannabis oil as a treatment in a hospital.

The significance of cannabis oil being used to treat an infant in a hospital should not be overlooked. What this move effectively illustrates is that cannabis is a viable medical option, and its current classification by the federal government as a Schedule 1 drug is as absurd as it is immoral.

The Free Thought Project recently reported on the findings of a study that showed cannabis oil to be a highly effective treatment for intractable epilepsy.

Of 261 patients given CBD treatment, 45% experienced a significant reduction in seizure frequency, and 9% were seizure-free at three months. Some children continued to experience benefits after the trial ended, even one year after.

When the same amazing plant that has cured cancer, saved the lives of epileptic children, and treated countless others, is being used in a hospital in one state, while being the cause for kidnapping and imprisonment by police in another state, something must be done.

Those who continue to lock people in cages for possessing this plant would be wise to refuse further orders to do so. If police wish to be on the right side of history, they should not wait for legislation to tell them to stop kidnapping and caging people for a plant, they should simply stop doing it.

When ‘just doing your job’ violates the rights of non-violent, peaceful people, some of who only want to save the lives of their children, it’s time to question the validity of that job.

A GoFundMe has been set up in Amylea’s name. Please show them some support by donating or sharing this article.

    And when this works (and there is a good chance it will), there will be officially ZERO excuses left.

    • Yvonne Forsman

      There already are zero excuses left. Only ppl uneducated on the subject still believe the cannabis plant, which has been used for thousands of years all across the globe as medicine, has no medicinal effect.

      • Joel W

        Well yea I absolutely agree. What I meant was once it is on record curing something in an actual hospital setting, there are no more phony excuses left.

  • gweneth

    Kudos to Mom and Dad and best wishes Amylea – hope you have a complete recovery.
    About time this might open the door.

    I agree with your opinion but they don’t usually vaccinate babies that early. Hard to know what is done that we don’t even know about.

      As soon as children are out of the womb they get a vaccine for Hep B.

    • Rachel Flanagan

      I see they’re holding my comment.
      Within 12 hours of birth infants receive a vaccine for Hep B.

    Genuine physicians are eager to use cannabis oil “concentrate” to assist patients to cure. Many physicians cannot, due to laws in their states and hospital policy that adhere to the “Rockefeller profit margin” instead of the hippocratic oath. Similarly, take the 1.2 trillion, annual profit of voodoo vaccination, for example, based on the disproved postulate of the con-man, Edward Jenner over 200 years ago. Injecting animal and human pus with a liquid mixture of mercury, aluminum and embalming fluid into a human is supposed to innoculate? Innoculate against wellness, perhaps, and spread illness, such as the geometric increase in Autism cases since 1970, and numerous other debilitating illnesses. The concept of injecting boys with gardasil is about as logical as attempting to obtain milk from a bull.

    If you are blessed with the joy of bringing a spirit into this world….. the least you can do is stand up for and protect your gift.

    Take your meds, loony

      Injecting aluminum into the blood steam of a small infant will not have a good outcome. Nothing “looney” about it, it’s “common sense,” something Big Pharma and their shill army is lacking due to their lust for more profit.
