Although there is little substantial evidence linking the effects that Cannabidiol has on seizures according to medical studies, this cannabis-derived substance has been therapeutically beneficial to a four-year-old Alberta child.
A local mother resorted to Cannabidiol to control her daughterâ€™s frequent seizures when pharmaceutical drugs did not work, and was extremely grateful when the substance â€œsignificantly reducedâ€ her daughterâ€™s seizures.
Last week, the Crown received a request to cease Cannabidiol treatment on the four-year-old, which was withdrawn officially this past Friday.
