Study: CBD Can Prevent Seizures in Those with Chronic Epilepsy, Decrease Neuronal Damage Caused by Seizures

purpleA new study published recently by the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine has found that cannabidiol (CBD), a compound found in cannabis, can prevent seizures in those with chronic epilepsy, and can decreased neuronal damage caused by seizures. The study was also published by the U.S. National Institute of Health.

“The study was designed to investigate the effect of various concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD) in rats with chronic epilepsy”, states the study’s abstract. “The chronic epilepsy rat model was prepared by intraperitoneally injecting pentylenetetrazole to the rats pre-treated with CBD (10, 20 and 50 mg/kg) for 28 consecutive days.”
