Dundalk mum believes medicinal cannabis helped her disabled daughter walk
A Dundalk mum believes that medicinal cannabis helped her disabled daughter to walk.
Lynda Bannon’s daughter Zoe was diagnosed with quadriplegia and cerebral palsy and it had been feared she would remain in a wheelchair for life.
Just over two months ago she began using CBD oil with the change in her health since branded “amazing” by Lynda, who noticed a difference within a fortnight.
She told The Irish Daily Mirror: “I could say it’s a coincidence but it’s just too much of a coincidence, so I’m not going to stop using it just in case.
“Since she started using the CBD, Zoe has come alive, she’s talking, her movement has improved so much, she suffers from separation anxiety and even that’s improving – she sees her sisters and wants to go out playing with them.
“The change in her and improvement has just been amazing to see – everyone has noticed.”

Commenting on social media recently, Lynda said: “Spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy with PVL brain damage, she will more than likely never walk they said! Expect to have your daughter wheelchair bound they said. We were crushed, well now 8 months on we can say 🖕🏻back. If we have of believed and accepted their words this wouldn’t be possible, she still haves a long road ahead but I fully know this clever special girl will prove absolutely everyone wrong and will be super cute while doing it 💚💚💚💚💚💚”
