"Yes, I love Daddy" Genevieve's life forever changed by Cannabis

She stole my heart, she calls me Daddy:

Life with Genevieve has always been filled with love and so many happy times, it’s been an incredible journey I’m so happy to continue. Many in the world of Autism or with a child that has a developmental delay or with special needs would beg to differ in that this lifestyle is ‘the best in the world’. But, I wouldn’t change it for anything. Many times Anne Mari are up late at night/all night with her and many times things we’d like to do become very secondary due to her needs, but isn’t that the way it is with all kids? Why do people have to look at children such as Genevieve as ‘delayed’ and ‘difficult’ when kids with no disability at all can be a handful – getting in trouble quite often, lack manners or respect, desire to succeed, and have so much to say that’s hardly intelligible with new slang coming out by the day that many parents would pay for a mute button if at all possible! I type that as I laugh, knowing that as much as our kids can be overwhelming in one way they can also overwhelm us with love – and it doesn’t matter whether it’s a disabled child or not – Love is Love. I got the greeting of a lifetime after missing my girls so much while on the road.

The love a children show can bring you to your knees in tears. Genevieve did that just last night. After being gone for 10 days I returned knowing that she was very happy watching video’s of her laughing away and smiling as her mom spoke of Daddy coming home. Often I wonder who it’s more difficult on when we are apart. The young teen that people think has no cognition of what’s going on or the adult that’s been alive for a half century that knows exactly what’s going on. By far, this child misses her daddy far more than any ‘Autism Expert’ would like to admit. As she came to greet me her Mom asked her “Did you miss Daddy” a hard head nod followed, I told her I loved her and kissed the side of her temple asking her “Do you love Daddy” – I didn’t expect a response as we’ve never gone into asking her about whether she loves anyone, it’s not generally an emotion displayed by the severely autistic. “Des” she vocalized with a head nod that was so intense. “Of course I love him” was how I interpreted it. Without a doubt it was one of those times in the world of special kids like her, or with any child for that matter, when you break out the Kleenex. Kids show the purest form of love there is, and to have it coming from a ‘non verbal’ severely autistic child? Wow, a moment I’ll never forget. Never…

Generally we don’t see anywhere near that much empathy in severely autistic children. Genevieve also has Severe Intractable Epilepsy and as many know, like her Daddy, she uses Cannabis Oils for medicine. But she does vary from me quite a bit in that medication protocol. Unlike myself, Genevieve has been fully weaned off of ALL pharmaceuticals! These are exciting times as the beautiful and amazing Cannabis plant and it’s extracts relieve many of the necessity to use pharmaceuticals. We all know the risks but many aren’t aware that a vast majority of Rx Medications are known to be carcinogenic aka they cause Cancer. This isn’t a theory, it’s a proven fact as many are listed under the state of California’s well-known ‘prop 65 items known to the state to cause cancer’. Many other states have similar lists and laws that require signage at locations that carry any items known to cause cancer – except pharmacies. Why would they be excluded? A question I ask often but there’s never a reasonable answer.

GenMomnDad2.jpg?resize=300%2C224&ssl=1

Back to Autism and Genevieve, her love is so intense. She’ll show us quickly who’s good and who’s not. It’s intense how she’ll literally show us who she wants to be around by how she’ll perform tasks and get her work done. What’s really intense is she seems to know who’s got the dark past and who doesn’t, and quickly. Children with Autism and adults as well are often discounted by society when indeed they are the masters of it! I know many people but I rarely hear from the Autistic adults I know in regards to who said what or who’s doing what, more so I’ll hear pertinent details of who, what, why, when, and where. It’s much easier to get the facts and straight up answers. Of course this is the high functioning crowd that many aren’t even aware are on the Autism Spectrum unless they let them know. With the younger more severe kids and adults, many especially at Genevieve’s find great difficulties in the ability to understand why others do what they do or even care, seemingly much more of a challenge to reach outside of self, after all that’s exactly what the word means. In ancient Greece the word ‘autos’ means self. Then in the late 1700’s the ‘ism’ was added which has a definition of: ‘a distinctive practice, system, or philosophy, typically a political ideology or an artistic movement’. It’s hard to look at the two words that create Autism and see a disability, rather I see many abilities that others do not and will never have.

Genevieve continues to make progress and continues to turn the heads of those that did not believe Cannabis Oils would change her life or any others. She continues to be the face of change and has no care in the world about the who, what, where, when or why – she’ll leave that to us folks that over think things. We’re always worried about tomorrow and thinking of yesterday but for Genevieve it’s the here and now always. She’s taught me the biggest lesson in the world and that’s live for the day. We both have Epilepsy so I can use the words “Seize every moment you can of happiness and joy” without someone getting offended – we both use Cannabis oil and cannabinoid protocols to make sure those are moments of joy and not moments in the hospital!

medical-autism-hero-brighter-1_orig.jpg?resize=300%2C150&ssl=1

I still can’t believe how boldly she declared she loves her Daddy. She already had my heart.. I’d do anything to make her life better, and I’m working hard on that now. My goal? To buy her a carousel. Yes, the entire ride and a place to house it. I like to think small and work up to something bigger – like an amusement park just for her and other kids with Autism totally catered to their specific needs and not to the world abound that has all the places in the world to go to… We need to concentrate on those that need help and forget about what we personally need or want. Just leave yourself, there’s a certain freedom in that.

Genevieve's Journey: Cannabis Beats The Seizures & Combats Autism

By: Mike Robinson, Medicinal Cannabis Patient & Founder, Global Cannabinoid Research Center

Watching My Daughter Thrive With Cannabis - A Miracle Everyday:

Many have watched on social media over the years as Genevieve, located in Santa Barbara California, has continued to make progress from the day she was discovered in the large compassion program I used to direct. A frantic call from her mom led to her becoming a recipient of gifted cannabis and CBD oils. At that time we gave away to hundreds every month, it was far before the regulations of Proposition 64 which put a damper on the gifting of Cannabis within the state. But Genevieve has had an effect on so many that the fight for compassion is still on with our State's Governor recently vetoing a bill that would allow the gift of life once again.

In the cover photo for this story she's walking along - nearly 1/2 mile away from home in a journey to get a Slurpee at a convenience store. It's not often we get a photo of the 3 of us together, but thankfully her therapist was with us and grabbed this shot! Walking around with Genevieve knowing that the oil that was initially brought that day, 2.5 years ago when our family was unknowingly created, has changed her life in such an intense manner continues to send chills down my spine by the day. Every step she takes with grace has me thanking my maker above. This plant has brought her from a place in which she was trapped in the world of Autism and seizing with sever Epilepsy dozens of times per day. Her life was surrounded by hospital stays, Rx medications that didn't work, therapists that had no answers, and a family that didn't know what to do. Then mom gave me a call... normally my notifications and phone ringers are on silent. That night, they were not and fate stepped into play. The Cannabis Love Story in the following link will warm your heart and go into detail about all of that! Click & Read now: The Cannabis Love Story

Every single day it seems that we get a report of a new word being used or she'll do something new. When she see's her Nana she'll grab a brush and stroke at her hair, as she knows that her gramma will come over and take her for a ride but only after her hair is brushed! So many little things like that add up to a really huge gain in development. When I met my 'client' who at the time was both for special education matters and for Cannabis oils, she was so absent from this world. Seizing, she needed oil on the spot, but still as she came out of it and showed that she was 'better' to her mom - my excitement didn't build until the following day when she verbalized "Momma" - a word that Anne Mari, now my fiance, hadn't heard in years.

The plant is simply amazing - it changes lives in ways that are so intense and saves so many people from prescription drug addiction and even death. I'm one of them. From Cancer to severe Epilepsy and so much more - Cannabis has been the answer. A simple seed turns into such a beautiful living part of the world and then that tree is harvested into so many different products that change the lives of the human race.

I'm in America where we watch the legalization in places like Canada and shake our heads. How possibly can we keep nature illegal while we watch pharmaceutical companies sell it as medicine? How long will the populous sit back and watch a government care so little about the people - about innocent kids like Genevieve? Not long - the average patient seems more educated than the average doctor. The average lawmaker doesn't even know the laws and the average officer of the law in California is even more confused about what's legal and what's not.

One thing is for sure - change is inevitable. Without it we won't see more Genevieve's walking around - we'll see them in wheelchairs and at clinics waiting for pharmaceuticals that cost a lot of money given to attempt to do what the plant easily does. For Genevieve - she's 100% free of all of them. For me? I was once prescribed over 60 pills a day, that number is under 10% of what it used to be. Our healthcare systems are not designed to treat kids like Genevieve or adults like myself - they're designed to make money.

It's time 'we the people' step up and speak out - we all can and should be heard on this issue as it's our lives and our rights. Cannabis is Medicine and should be considered an herb just as it is - there's no reason to even regulate it let alone prohibit it!

Free the weed and free kids like Genevieve to have an awesome future!

Mike Robinson
