A study was conducted children with severe cases of epilepsy. Thirteen of those children had Dravet syndrome, four had Doose syndrome, and the other two had Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and idiopathic epilepsy. The results, which were submitted by 19 parents whose children had been involved in the study showed reduced frequency of seizures in 84 percent of the patients. 11percent reported complete freedom from seizures, 42 percent of them showed an 80 percent reduction in seizures, and 32 percent, 25-60 percent reduction in frequency. They all showed minimal or no side effects from the use of CBD extract. In some cases, the reduction in frequency was up to 80 percent, as reported by the parents.
The side effects from the use if this extract were drowsiness and fatigue. Apart from the frequency improvement, the children also showed improved moods, better sleeping patterns, and improved alertness.
While the study showed some side effects, which gave it a bad rap, it also shows some great improvements in children. Their level of epilepsy, which is characterized by multiple seizures, was quite severe. The fact that CBD reduced the frequency says a lot about its potency. Further studies with a more pure form of CBD could show better results.
