Scientists have identified three acidic cannabinoids in cannabis that reduces seizure activity in mouse models of Dravet syndrome.
Using purified botanical cannabidiol (CBD) to treat mouse models of Davet syndrome improved mortality and reduced behavioral symptoms associated with the condition.
Results from a phase 3 study reveal Cannabidiol (CBD) cuts seizures by almost 50% in children with Dravet syndrome.
Researchers shed light on the endocannabinoid system and report how cannabis is helping to provide relief to many with medical problems.
A new study reports a 39 to 46% reduction in seizures in children with Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome when given CBD based treatments.
Researchers say a new cannabis derived drug, which is expected to receive full approval from the FDA this week, will be a vital intervention for children with Dravet Syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.
Researchers provide further evidence that the cannabis compound, CBD, is effective at reducing seizures in people with epilepsy. The new study reveals CBD significantly reduced seizures in people with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. Previously, the researchers demonstrated CBD was effective at seizure control in Dravet syndrome.
A new PNAS paper reports cannabidiol can help reduce epileptic seizures and improve social behaviors in children with Dravet syndrome.
A cannabis derivative reduced seizure frequency by 39% in patients with Dravet syndrome.
Researchers report a group of genes previously associated with rare forms of epilepsy may also contribute to common forms of the disorder.
