There has been an increase in news coverage regarding medicinal cannabis oil in 2013. This includes reports from CNN, ABC, CBS, CBS, and local media about high-cannabidiol cannabis oils effectively controlling the symptoms rare epileptic conditions like Dravet and Doose, infantile spasms as well as cortical dysplasia and infantile spasms. These diseases can lead to seizures that range from hundreds to thousands per week. They also impact development in a variety other ways. For families with children suffering from such conditions, the challenges are overwhelming. Due to the complexity of Dravet or related syndromes, traditional medications are ineffective and often make matters worse. Family members have turned to high CBD cannabis oil for their only hope. This is showing remarkable results.
High-CBD cannabis oil has a non-psychoactive component that is apparently more effective than high-THC cannabis oil. Cannabidiol, another cannabinoid found in cannabis plants, is also being researched. It has been shown to have neuroprotective, anticancer and antispasmodic properties. Furthermore, cannabis oil is a type of extract from cannabis. These oils contain large amounts of concentrated cannabis cannabinoids. They can be consumed orally and not smoked. This preserves the medicinal compounds and allows them to pass through the digestive system.
CBD appears to possess panacea-like abilities, as evidenced by research. On August 11th, 2013, Sanjay Gupta released a documentary on CNN about Charlotte Figi. Charlotte is a Dravet patient, who had 300 grand mal seizures every week. This number is unaffected by any dietary or pharmaceutical changes. Charlotte's parents learned about high-CBD cannabis oil, and after literally the first dose, Charlotte's seizures stopped. She now has less than three minor seizures a month. This is an extraordinary case and not something that's common. Dr. Margaret Gedde, a Colorado Springs physician, is tracking 11 new patients of the Stanely brothers, the providers of Charlotte's high-CBD medicine. Nine patients have seen seizures drop by as much as 90%, which is just amazing.
The epileptic conditions that CBD is proving to be effective against are extremely complex, and not even the most powerful, well researched pharmaceuticals have been capable of inducing any healing. High-CBD cannabis is able to immediately reduce symptoms. It also has systemic benefits, such as increased energy, better learning, and improved behavior.
This is not surprising considering that such results have been around for years. Research has shown that cannabinoids can be used to treat epilepsy and other serious conditions. In practice, these results translate to epilepsy and other conditions. Since the beginning, people have been successfully eliminating and mitigating cancers. This is an extremely serious issue and it needs more attention.
