Epileptic boy, 11, who became the first Briton to be prescribed cannabis on the NHS, makes ‘incredible’ recovery after having NO seizures for 10 months

An 11-year-old on the brink of death from a severe form of epilepsy has made an ‘incredible’ recovery since taking medical marijuana.

Billy Caldwell, from Castlederg, Northern Ireland, made headlines in April when he became the first Briton to be prescribed such a drug on the NHS.

But his treatment actually began last November, when he was given cannabis oil by specialists in the US in hope it would control his vicious seizures.

And now, 10 months since he was first given the liquid cannabis oil, he hasn’t had any seizures. He used to suffer up to 100 a day.
