cbd oil for seizures in babies

CBD products are derived from marijuana, but do not include THC, the active agent in pot that causes a “high.”

The study included 199 patients, average age 9, who were divided into three groups. One group received 20 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) dose per day of Epidiolex (in liquid form), while the second group received 10 mg/kg per day, and the third group received a placebo.

Seizures were reduced by half or more in 49% of the high-dose group, 44% of the low-dose group, and 26% of the placebo group.
