Cannabis Oil Gives Boy With Severe Autism His Speech — Tells Parents ‘I Love You’ for First Time

Kalel Santiago, a 3-year-old boy from Puerto Rico, was diagnosed with autism after suffering a rare form of cancer and undergoing chemotherapy, surgery and radiation treatments, starting when he was only 10 months old.



He had a severe speech delay, meaning that he did not speak at all until age 3.

“While he was in the hospital, we noticed he didn’t speak at all and had some behavior that wasn’t right, like hand flapping, and walking on his toes,” explained Kalel’s father Abiel Gomez Santiago to Yahoo News. “But we waited until he was 3 and cancer-free to look at his behavior.”

Kalel’s parents knew very little about autism at the time, and sought out a way to ensure that their child would be helped. They found measurable success from various schools and therapeutic techniques, including one that used surfing as a means of therapy.

After trying various methods, the Santiago family was made aware of Cannabidiol (CBD) oil as a non-psychoactive treatment for autism.

CBD is one of over a hundred cannabinoids present in cannabis. It can be used as an antitumoral, anti-inflammatory, antiemetic, anticonvulsant, anti-oxidant, anti-psychotic or anxiolytic.

When they were able to obtain CBD oil, Kalel was given small oral doses twice daily. In just 2 days, he began to speak.

“He surprised us in school by saying the vowels, A-E-I-O-U. It was the first time ever,” Abiel said. “You can’t imagine the emotion we had, hearing Kalel’s voice for the first time. It was amazing. The teacher recorded him and sent it to my wife and me and we said well, the only different thing we have been doing is using the CBD.”

“He said, ‘amo mi mama,’ ‘I love my mom,’” Abiel recalled. “I don’t know how to thank [those who made the CBD oil].”

The question remains, why does this plant remain criminalized while it is showing promise to help so many people? If we are to allow for advancements in science and medicine, we should not be swayed by special interest.

When will bureaucrats choose to step out of the way and allow the cannabis market to bring healing medicine to those who need it most?

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
