Seizures and Cannabis

Marijuana News: New UK Study Sees 86% Reduction in Epileptic Seizures 

Using cannabis for the treatment of epilepsy symptoms is nothing new. It’s been a common treatment in ancient medicine dating back to 1800 BC. And while the FDA has approved a compounded drug derived from cannabis, whole-flower may hold more treatment value.  It could work far better for patients. 

A new study published by researchers in the United Kingdom hypothesizes that whole-flower could hold more promise. That is cannabidiol (CBD) and THC combined. Particularly for children with intractable epilepsy. Where other treatments have been ineffective.

Get Ready for Legalized CBD Products at Your Local Store

Sure, you can find cannabidiol (CBD) oil anywhere. Also, supplements and gummies. But did you know that CBD is still not recognized as a legal food ingredient? And that leaves manufacturers wide-open to get into trouble with the federal government.

However, things may be changing soon. New bipartisan legislation aimed at addressing the issue, could make cannabidiol an official ingredient. For foods, beverages, and of course, wellness products.
