Canna Facts: CBD and Epilepsy Case Study
An excerpt from a recently released case study describes how a pure CBC extract devoid of all THC was used to reduce one pediatric patients seizures in combination with her already implemented seizure medications. It is vital to note that this patient was unable to achieve remission without a combination of therapies, which included but was not limited to CBD. We consider this positive case report an encouraging piece of evidence to support to CBD as a safe medication to help the treatment of seizures.
