The Story Behind the Empower Your Odyssey Brand
This is the story of what lead us to create Empower Your Odyssey and our mission to educate and spread awareness about the benefits of medical cannabis for so many health conditions.
When Hannah was ten years old, we were told that she was out of viable medical treatment options, to take her home, love her and enjoy every moment. Never once was this considered acceptable. I began my research and came across several articles pertaining to medical cannabis being successfully used for the treatment of epilepsy. Inquiring with one of Hannah’s physicians, I was quickly told this was absolutely not an option.
Several months passed and the episode ‘Weed’ aired on CNN with Dr. Sanjay Gupta (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRLYV0_6zY8). Immediately after this aired, I received a request from another Mom that has a little girl
On December 30, 2017, Hannah smiled and laughed for the first time in 2 ½ years!
Fast forward to 2018, Hannah’s seizures have reduced tremendously. The consistent use of medical cannabis, various other key components and never giving up have given Hannah her quality of life back. Medical Cannabis is an essential ingredient in our recipe for life!
Hannah is walking on her own again now – independently! She is verbalizing in Hannahease, following direction, smiling, laughing and beginning to enjoy life again in Hannah-fashion! Hannah only had 5 seizures in March 2018!
We believe in the power of this plant so much that we have made it our mission to continue to advocate and educate until the stigma is overturned.
