New Study: Cannabis Can Stop Seizures

A new study published by the British Journal of Pharmacology has found that cannabis can stop seizures due to its “significant anticonvulsant effects”. marijuana-medical

For the study researchers used an extract made from the whole cannabis plant, and used the substance on a number of animal models – using rats and mice – and found that the extract was able to effectively stop seizures.

Researchers note that; “Here, for the first time, we demonstrate that cannabis extracts rich in CBDV and CBD can exert significant anticonvulsant effects”.

The study concludes; “These findings strongly support the further clinical development of CBDV BDSs for treatment of epilepsy.”

Although previous studies have shown cannabinoids to be effective at treating seizures, this particular study is one of the first to study the effect of the whole cannabis plant.

  2. I would love for you all to do a story on me. I was having 60-80 seizures in a week since i was 13 years old. I found out about the CBD in the plant that could give my life back. It has worked miracles not only for my Seizures, but my Cerebral Palsy an Multiple Sclerosis. I think i am one of the few cases that Medical Marijuana has help Cerebral Palsy. I was on the radio, that is based out of Washington State. many could not listen in because of problems. The joint blog could be a VERY BIG HELP. All the people i have following me on my Greener Pasture page, gets your news. I think we can both help out each other. I need my State to listen to what i have to say.
