Albuquerque baby receives hemp oil for epilepsy at Children's Hospital Colorado – Marijuana News

AURORA, Colo. - A baby girl who began having life-threatening seizures within days of her birth is receiving hemp oil while in the neonatal intensive-care unit at Children's Hospital Colorado, her mother says.

Amylea Faith Nuñez's parents drove to Colorado Springs to buy the liquid form of marijuana this week after they say neurologists at Children's said they could give it to their daughter.

The two-month-old girl took her first dose Thursday from a tiny syringe her mother squirted into her mouth. "We took CBD Oil as an election of our own. They went ahead and told us to administer the CBD oil to her," said Nicole Nuñez, Amylea's mother.

Children's Hospital Colorado does not prescribe or recommend medical marijuana, as it is not FDA-approved.
