Study: CBD has Longer Treatment Window for Newborn Brain Damage than Other Treatments

Newborn Brain DamageA new study being published in the upcoming issue of the journal CNS & Neurological Disorders – Drug Targets, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabidiol (CBD) can treat newborn brain damage, and can do so when administered longer after a dramatic event than other treatment options.

According to the study’s abstract, its purpose was “to test the TTW [therapeutic time window] of the neuroprotective effects of cannabidol (CBD), a non-psychoactive cannabinoid in a model of newborn HI brain damage.”

In doing so, researchers administered CBD to newborn mice with brain damage; it was administered 15 minutes after the induction of brain damage, and then 1, 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 hours after.
