A 4-year-old Texas Original Compassionate Cultivation patient improves seizure control, behaviors and sleep with the company’s medicine
AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Texas Original Compassionate Cultivation (TXOG), Texas’ leading medical cannabis provider, celebrates 4-year-old Carter Halliburton’s success story as he recognizes the benefits of TXOG’s medicine in navigating his rare neurological conditions.
Early in childhood, Carter was diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), an uncommon form of childhood epilepsy. He was also diagnosed with an incredibly rare neurological disorder, SYNGAP1 syndrome. At the time of his diagnosis, he was one of only 400 people in the world with the condition. Carter previously experienced more than 100 seizures each day, leading his parents and physicians to try several medications that caused negative side effects. After working with Carter’s neurologist to balance TXOG’s medicine with other treatments, they noticed a difference in seizure reduction as well as improved behavioral control and sleep.
Quality sleep is critical for SYNGAP1 syndrome patients who often struggle with sleep abnormalities and disturbances resulting in restless nights for both patients and their caregivers. Carter’s medical cannabis allows him to sleep soundly through the night without relying on strong sleep medications.
“There has been a night and day difference in Carter over the past two years,” said Peter Halliburton, Carter’s father. “The combined therapy of Carter’s anti-seizure prescriptions and TXOG’s medical cannabis has significantly improved his daily life. We’re seeing benefits outside of just better seizure control, such as Carter’s ability to get a full night’s sleep. Poor sleep can be debilitating and affect the quality of life for SYNGAP1 syndrome families. Now Carter sleeps almost 11 hours each night and is able to go back to sleep on his own if he does wake up. Our family is grateful for consistent sleep and we would love to see neurologists prescribe medical cannabis like TXOG’s—which we trust and know is the highest quality—as a first-line treatment.”
The Halliburtons’ journey to improved seizure control has been a roller coaster, but the benefits and convenience of TXOG’s medical cannabis have enabled Carter to live a healthier life. The family is able to easily access Carter’s medicine in different ways, including through deliveries and by visiting TXOG’s prescription pick-up location in nearby Dallas.
“Carter’s story is an excellent example of how medical cannabis can positively impact the life of a patient living with rare syndromes,” said Morris Denton, CEO of TXOG. “Our team is constantly working to cultivate and manufacture a variety of natural, consistent medical cannabis products to meet patients’ unique needs, and we’re glad the Halliburton family is able to experience the benefits of this powerful plant.”
TXOG’s gummies, tincture and lozenge products are available for statewide delivery at www.texasoriginal.com, at their dispensary in Austin, Texas, and through the company’s convenient patient pick-up locations in North Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. The company’s patient-centric advocacy and awareness series, Advocates for Cannabis in Texas, highlights Texans—and their caregivers—who have found relief and comfort through medical cannabis.
