A study just recently revealed by the American Epilepsy Society (AES) has discovered a cannabis derivative to be efficient in combating epileptic seizures, with the substance exhibiting severe efficacy in dealing with the condition within kids.
The American Epilepsy Society's findings
The study– entitled “Effectiveness and Safety of Epidiolex (Cannabidiol) in Children and Young Adults With Treatment-Resistant Epilepsy”– was revealed at the AES's 70th annual meeting last month.
The study discovered that cannabidiol (CBD) worked in minimizing both the frequency and severity of seizures in both kids and adults. It began in Philadelphia in 2014 with children from epilepsy treatment centers nationwide.
Particularly, clients who received the treatment were discovered to have actually displayed an average decrease in seizures of 45.1 percent.
The research study was unequivocal in its findings.
These findings arise from an unrestrained research study and supports the animal studies and previous reports revealing that CBD might be a promising treatment for treatment-resistant epilepsies and it is usually well-tolerated in doses up to 25mg/kg/day.
According to Dr. Orrin Devinsky, a lead author of the research study and neurologist at the New york city University Langone Medical Center, the findings were extremely appealing.
In the subsequent periods, which are very encouraging, 9 percent of all clients and 13 percent of those with Dravet Syndrome epilepsy were seizure-free.
Many of those study participants had actually never ever been seizure-free in the past.
The leaders of the study have actually been outspoken about its findings, stressing that it is among the bigger body of research study to suggest that marijuana and its derivatives work in combating epileptic seizures.
Elizabeth A. Thiele, M.D., Ph.D.– a lead author of the research study– stated in an AES press release that the research study's findings could offer hope to numerous epilepsy clients,
For many children with treatment-resistant Dravet syndrom, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and other epilepsies, CBD appears to be a reliable– often very reliable– treatment that is safe and well-tolerated overall.
Thiele was quick to point out, nevertheless, that clients and observers should work to manage their expectations,
It is not a silver bullet, but there are kids who take advantage of this more than they have from other treatments.
Regardless of the promise revealed by the effectiveness of marijuana in treating epilepsy, doctors have actually however warned against patients– and particularly clients' moms and dads– trying to procure and prescribe the compound by themselves.
This phenomenon is challenging, states Nicole Hansen, the mother of a seven-year-old young boy with epilepsy, because an absence of doctor input might lead to inaccurate doses for the patient.
You need to ensure the business can replicate the same item over and over. A small modification in the ratio of THC to cannabidiol can trigger a child's seizures to increase or come back.
Some parents, however, have no option: A lot of those with children whose epileptic conditions have actually been found to be treatable with CBD oil live in states in which the compound is prohibited, requiring them to acquire the medicine through back channels.
As time marches forward acceptance of cannabis-based treatment is growing, so those who have conditions related to epileptic seizures have sincere grounds for optimism that safe effective treatments will someday soon be readily available.
I started taking HempWorx CBD Oil to combat seizures, but I didn't realize what an AMAZING sleep aid it is as well. So today I start seeing the "lights" it's my indicator of an oncoming seizure. Just before the point of blacking out I decided to take a dose of CBD Oil. As soon as it hit the floor of my mouth under my tongue the lights completely disappeared, saving me from experiencing yet another seizure! I proudly and thankfully stand by this product 100%!
My 12 yr old daughter suffers from seizures, due to spinal meningitis at age 2. We have been treating with holistic meds for a few years. The seizures would stop for awhile and then return, so we switched meds and again stop for awhile and then return. We decided a few weeks ago to try cbd oil 750. First day, seizures stopped. On day 7, she had one. We upped the dose from 5 drops 2 times a day to 7 drops. They stopped that day and as long as she takes it, she doesn’t have any seizures at all. While I was gone she wasn’t given the cbd oil one night and she had a seizure. She not fussy, holds focus on school work. This has been a blessing..
This is my first time doing this. so I hope everyone will have patience with me. I have suffered with depression and anxiety my hole life and it hasn't been easy. I also have graves disease and Psoriasis it's in my joints so I have arthritis really bad. I also have seizures. I have been omg meds seance the age of 19 nothing I have taken has helped me. I was so sick of doctors and asking for help. I had been through so much in my life at this point I was just ready to give up. I stop all of my meds I was just done. I watched my mother in law pass away. I watched my aunt pass away and then my father in law. death was surrounding me I was losing my mind. But what really dropped me in a dark, dark place was me Losing my dad it dropped me to my knees I didn't care about anything or anyone and all the doctor's wanted to do is add more meds I was over all the medicine. I sat down and was going through Facebook one day and seen a post from a gentleman who changed my life from that day October 9th and I feel he saved me. This oil gave me my life back from being in the darkest place in my life to loving life and everyone in my life. The cbd oil will forever be apart of my life. I'm medicine free to this day😊 I'm sorry for such a long testimony but I'm living proof this oil and that post saved my life.
My 19 year old son had a wart on his wrist for about 2 years...a rather large one that we tried over counter meds for and natural remedies....it would shrink it but never totally gone and then it would continue growing. He would forget to care for it, needless to say and the story goes. I started him on my Hempworx CBD about a month ago for seizures which are gone ( I testified of that before) and some other issues that are improving, but this wart....we noticed today its totally gone! Cant even see where it was! We didn't even treat it. It healed from the inside out just from being on the oil! So, the CBD is a wart remover too just from consuming it! Mom and son, happy campers....finally!
Went out to eat with my family. My little girl needed to use the bathroom. When I came out my son rushed me to my husband he was starting to go into one of his seizures. I went to him right away he was getting worse where I knew I could not get him up and outside so he could vape. So I reached in my purse grabbed my cbd oil I carry and started to put drops in his right mouth as best as I could. A couple minutes later he started blinking his eyes and coming out of it. Then he was able to get up and walk outside to vape. We were than able to go sit down and eat. We have been using cbd for a while but sense I got with hempworx and started using their cbd I have noticed so much more results.😎
I have had severe back issues most of my life. I was born with a crack in my L5, or maybe it was even from the delivery itself. years following graduation from high school, I ended up having a back surgery to hopefully correct this, They ended up inserting titanium plates and screws to hold this area together so it could start to heal.
Now, fast forward 8 or so years after the surgery. I'm still having pain after this surgery that was supposed to "help" me. I've ended up trying steroid injects to attempt to lessen or eliminate the pain temporarily, but that didn't help me at all. I wake up with pain, go to sleep with pain, basically it would consume my day and even distract me at times while at work. The most recent brain & spinal doctor I visited, told me the scans we've done are showing NO indication of inflammation at all, so he's unable to do anything else for me.
Getting told there isn't anything else someone can do to help you, REALLY sucks. Especially when this is their profession, they went to school to fix these things right? Well sometimes there just isn't a solution.
This news is what pushed me into looking into some "natural" relief remedies. I started looking more into hemp CBD oil, and was pretty amazed at what I had read about it..there was no high like cannabis gives you, due to the low THC content.
It's been helping children all over the world with seizures, and a wide array of ailments! I knew I had to try this stuff myself, so naturally like anyone these days..the fastest way to order it was online. So I googled hemp CBD oil and found all these different companies, and spent hours doing more research. Then a friend of mine suggested hempworx, as he is a current customer...so I ordered my first bottle. A few weeks in to using it, my pain is completely gone. Now I just need to take around a 1/4th of a dropper once I'm home from work, to keep my night, pain free! Another awesome thing coming out of this, is it has been helping me with my sleep issues and headaches as well!
Something that has always been in my mind is if I end up taking pain meds/opiods for the pain, I'll become addicted. Using this oil has helped me overcome that fear, because it's a natural product and you can't get addicted! Besides an addiction for the relief it provides.
I'm so grateful this "Miracle" was shared with me, and I believe it's something that needs to be shared with everyone else, as it can do so much good!
I started taking the 500 mg Hempworx CBD oil in early November 2017. I seriously had my doubts because for 2.5 years I have had bad anxiety.The anxiety actually made me quit my job in 2015. I have tried every natural vitamin and nutrition in hopes it would alleviate it.The Dr. had prescribed anxiety medicine, but do to having epilepsy and all anxiety medicine having seizures as a side effect, I chose the all natural way.I would like to say I have switched to the 750 mg and am actually out looking for jobs.Thanks Hempworx for giving me my life back!😊
