Tom Bethell – A suicidal schoolboy who was crippled by chronic fatigue syndrome, has made a remarkable recovery after taking cannabis oil.

Tom’s life has changed forever after he started using drops of cannabidiol or CBD, a legal form of cannabis, daily.

The drug is widely available online, but sellers can’t make claims for its effectiveness because it isn’t currently licensed as a medicine in England and Wales.

Tom, 15, from Thetford, Norfolk, England, hasn’t been to school for nearly eight years because of his chronic fatigue syndrome.

He is so depressed that he told his mother Sarah Thomas, 38, he ‘didn’t want to live anymore’.

He couldn’t leave his bed and growing so weak that even his eye muscles didn’t function properly, making his vision blurry.

Ms. Thomas, who used to be his full-time caregiver, said: ‘Tom had no energy at all and was in a complete “brain fog”.

‘He would fall over 20 or 30 times a day, he was completely debilitated. His memory was poor, he couldn’t even breathe properly.’

Doctors had prescribed the anti-depressant amitriptyline but it hadn’t worked.

Ms. Thomas was later recommended by her own mother who praised its remarkable effects on her Crohn’s disease to try to use cannabis oil.

His recovery

Ms. Thomas, the boy’s mother said: ‘It’s completely changed his life and alleviated his symptoms.

He became so depressed he told his mother Sarah Thomas, 38, he 'didn’t want to live any more'

‘It’s kick-started his growth, he shot up 11 inches in nine months. Even his hair had stopped growing and now it’s started again.

‘He’s now hit puberty, he’s got body hair and leg hair, he went up two shoe sizes in eight weeks. His memory is better and he can retain information.

‘He’s gone from relearning his 3x tables to now being able to attempt five GCSE exams next year. Before he couldn’t even find the words to have a conversation’

He will probably always have ME, but the CBD is allowing him to be himself. He’s a lot happier and no longer has reactive depression.

‘He’s a happy child, like a normal 15-year-old. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to see him like this.’

Ms. Thomas is now working for CBD Brothers, the firm that supplies her family with cannabis oil.

She believes the drug has also helped her, by reducing the pain from her rheumatoid arthritis and hypermobility.

Is it legal?

Government advisors made it legal to buy CBD oil last October after they admitted that it has a ‘restoring, correcting or modifying’ effect on humans.

However, the oils legal status has confused thousands across England and Wales are still confused about the oils legal status.

Suppliers now have to gain a license to sell it for medication, following the decision last October.

Manufacturers are able to avoid regulation by selling it as a food supplement – ignoring the lengthy process of gaining a medicinal license.

The oil can help with back pain, anxiety and epilepsy, has yet to be approved for use on the NHS in Scotland.
