Study Shows CBD Oil May Eases Epilepsy Seizures.
A new clinical trial suggests that treating epilepsy with marijuana extract cannabidiol.Dr. Orrin Devinsky, director of NYU Langone’s Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, located in New York City said that patients consuming 10-milligrams of pharmaceutical grade cannabidiol (CBD) per day, was helpful in reducing seizures.
This is the third, and latest, in a series of clinical trials that seem to indicate that medication Epidiolex helps patients suffering from two rare forms of epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, and Dravet syndrome.
In April, an advisory panel for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration unanimously recommended that the FDA approve the usage of Epidiolex in the United States.
The manufacturer of Epidiolex, the British company GW Pharmaceuticals, funded the clinical trial.Dr. Devinsky is hoping the FDA will approve Epidiolex, and make it available to adults and children who suffer from Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome during their June Meetings.
CBD oil has become the latest cure-all product but the treatment of epilepsy with CBD oil has amassed scientific evidence indicating that CBD may be an effective treatment for these two rare conditions. The study showed that of the A total of 225 patients suffering from Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, only six dropped out due to side effects. Dr. Devinsky indicated that he believes that Epidiolex seems to have fewer side effects than many of the available drugs.
Dr. Devinsky is not exactly sure why CBD is so effective, but he believes that CBD works on the receptors and alter the chemistry in the brain and helps with the reduction of seizures. Dr. Devinsky also indicated that he believes that more studies are needed with CBD on generalized epilepsies.
The findings were published online May 17 in the New England Journal of Medicine.
