Brain cancer patient receives first medical marijuana delivery

- The last 11-months have been very hard for Amanda Gammisch. First came the devastating diagnosis: stage 3 brain cancer and a five year life expectancy.

Next came the seizures, and after two brain surgeries which opened up her skull, the seizures continue. Now, she has new hope though. The 36-year old just received the first Central Florida delivery of CBD Oil from Surterra Therapeutics.

The oil is made using cannabis. It's essentially a form of medical marijuana. The oil should help calm the seizures and possible something even more significant Gammisch's long-term survival.
