A cannabis extract containing 100 mg / ml of CBD and 2 mg / ml of THC reduced the number of seizures in a study conducted with 19 children with Dravet Syndrome, a serious disease of epilepsy.

The research was carried out at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, where the analysis of the operation of the regular treatment was made in conjunction with an alternative medicinal cannabis.

Both Δ9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) have been shown to have antiepileptic effects. The oils extracted from this plant are used effectively to treat epilepsy in cases where there is resistance to pharmaceutical drugs.

The average daily dose reached was 13.3 mg / kg of CBD (range: 7 to 16 mg / kg of weight) and 0.27 mg / kg of THC (range: 0.14 to 0.32 mg / kg of weight).

"There was a statistically significant improvement in quality of life, a reduction in peak activity of the EEG and a reduction in the mean of motor seizures of 70.6%," the study authors note.

Some adverse effects experienced during the assessment were drowsiness, diarrhea and anorexia, although the causes are not exactly specified.

The investigation concludes that the concentrate prepared with CBD and THC was found to be effective and safe in the 19 children.

"TIL-TC150 (name of the concentrate) was effective in reducing seizures and improving the quality of life," the study notes.

The study also achieves another of its stated objectives in the conclusions: to provide safe information for the dosing of cannabis preparations containing THC.

Cada vez son más los testimonios que relatan la capacidad del #cannabidiol para controlar las convulsiones sobre todo en niños que a cierta edad desarrollan estos síntomas.🧪

El #CBD es un cannabinoide no-psicoactivo capaz de modular la actividad eléctrica y química en el cerebro lo cual ayuda a silenciar el exceso de actividad que producen las convulsiones.

⚡️La epilepsia está caracterizada por desequilibrios en la actividad eléctrica de las neuronas. Cuando existen desniveles en esa actividad se desarrollan consecuencias en el campo cognitivo, neurológico y psicológico de una persona.
-
La importancia del cannabis medicinal en niños con epilepsia es que a medida que se desarrolla la enfermedad los medicamentos suelen tener efectos secundarios que son graves para el desarrollo de las facultades individuales y esto crea problemas de tipo afectivo en el núcleo familiar debido a lo fuerte que suelen ser las convulsiones en un gran cantidad de casos.
