A seven-year-old boy who was at the heart of a public outcry over medicinal cannabis legalisation is doing "amazingly well", his mother has said.
Alfie Dingley, from Kenilworth, was granted a special licence in June to use medicinal cannabis oil.
He has a rare form of epilepsy that causes up to 150 seizures a month but his mother, Hannah Deacon, said he has not had any seizures since July.
From next week doctors will be able to prescribe medicinal cannabis in the UK.
Alfie Dingley has not had a seizure since he has been using cannabis oil, his mother said.
"He's amazingly well," Ms Deacon told the BBC, continuing that "he has not had any seizures" since his cannabis oil was reintroduced.
Ms Deacon said her son was "coming on amazingly" since he was granted a licence for its use.
She said she "cried" through most of Alfie's parents' evening on Wednesday, "because his teachers said he's just doing so well, we can't keep up with him".
"It's extremely overwhelming," she said.
"When I walk him to school I know how lucky I am."
