Special Needs and CBD: Kian's story using CBD to manage multiple special needs

Taiya's son Kian is with Down syndrome, ADHD, autism, and partial seizure disorder. He is the inspiration for her founding Crooked Cactus CBD after his quality of life significantly improved by incorporating CBD into his routine. Careful not to tread on medical claims, Taiya shares a heartwarming, educational and often humorous anecdotal story to help other families considering CBD. She reveals the fears and challenges she had to overcome, how she started a CBD protocol, tips and tricks she's learned along the way and how to broach the subject with their loved one's interdisciplinary team.

7 Things CBD is NOT

This talk digs into the common myths associated with CBD and offers practical, accurate and convincing truths to replace misperceptions and misinformation. Stigma, fear, and decades of propaganda nearly prevented Taiya from treating her son with CBD when she was desperate and determined to find a more natural and healthy way to manage his multiple special needs. When she dug into the research, fear was dispelled by knowledge. When she understood what CBD was and was NOT, what seemed to be a difficult decision became the obvious choice.
