At just eight and a half months old, Sophie Ryan was diagnosed with a low-grade, Optic Pathway Glioma brain tumor, after shaking was noticed in her left eye, and an MRI was performed.
After Sophie’s parents, Josh and Tracy Ryan, created a Facebook page, “Prayers for Sophie,” a friend introduced them to actress Ricki Lake and producer Abby Epstein, who were working on a documentary on cannabis oil killing cancer cells in pediatric patients.
The documentary, Weed the People (Netflix 2018), followed caregivers, cannabis patients and families using cannabis oil for cancer. The crew followed Sophie for six years, with the nine-month-old taking her first drop of cannabis oil on camera.
“After 13 months of chemo, along with high doses of cannabis oil, Sophie’s brain tumor was about 85 to 90 percent gone,” Tracy explained. “We had been told the very large cyst that had formed would not be remedied with the chemo, but it too was 90 percent gone.”
