By now, most people are probably aware of what benefits CBD has on the human health with regards to treating various illnesses (like cancer, cardiovascular disease, alcoholism, PTSD, diabetes, schizophrenia, arthritis, rheumatoid, and other ailments), providing pain relief, and controlling the nausea, dizziness and vomiting that comes along with the consumption of opioid drugs. However, what most people don’t know that CBD has also recently been found to treat epileptic seizures in adults and children! Don’t believe us? Well, you don’t have to! The information below speaks for itself:

Recent Studies on CBD and its Effects on Reducing Seizures

According to Dr. Daniel Friedman (an epilepsy specialist and neurologist at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City) and another research conducted by NCBI, CBD has already shown to prevent seizures in animal trials (particularly in rats). However, these were in the initial stages of CBD being introduced as a treatment for various disorders. As of now, Cannabidiol is associated with a reduction in seizure frequencies in adolescents and adults as well (according to a survey data published in the journal Epilepsy & Behavior).

This can further be proven in this post by Huffington that describes a story of boy named Ruiz, who lives in Conroe, Texas. Ruiz suffered with what scientists call the Dravet Syndrome. For those of you who don’t know, this syndrome is a debilitating disorder that can cause any person to suffer from more than 100 seizures in a day. However, CBD is now being used as a treatment for this disorder and has shown positive results of reducing the number of seizures Ruiz experiences in a day, hence finally giving his family a light of hope and sigh of relief.

Another survey data compiled in 2013 by researchers from the Stanford University revealed that the administration of CBD surprisingly reduces seizures in 16 of 19 patients whom were suffering from pediatric epilepsy. As a result, CBD is now currently being trialed and finally induced as a medicine for severe epilepsy and seizure cases. This can not only provide hope for all those parents out there who are waiting for a treatment to help make their children’s lives better, but it also enables CBD to move on from the “never-ending testing phase” that is preventing many people from receiving treatment for various disorders and ailments.

So, if you know anyone who is looking for a way to reduce seizures to lead a better life, then don’t feel afraid to spread the light on CBD and its beneficial anti-epileptic properties.
