CBD and epilepsy treatment

Research on animals (Shirazizand et al 2013, Jones 2012,2011), clinical studies (Cunha et al. 1980) and also stories of ordinary people reveal high healing potential of CBD by epilepsy treatment.

CBD and epilepsy – clinical study

In the first phase of the only clinical study that has been published so far, there were 3mg of CBD per kg given to 8 healthy volunteers during 30 days. 

Another group of 8 volunteers was given identical capsules but only with glucose as placebo. Every week the patients underwent neurological and physical tests, urin and blood analysis, ECG and EEG.

In the second phase, there were 15 patients diagnosed with generalized epileptic seizures (by epileptic activity the whole cortex of both hemispheres is affected) and divided into 2 groups. Each one of them was receiving 200-300mg of CBD or placebo daily. The experiment lasted for 4,5 months.

During experiment, the patients were given also standardized epilepsy medication on prescription despite the fact that this medication did not help to control the disease´s symptoms.

According to the tests and analysis, all patients and volunteers were tolerating CBD without any addictions, contraindications or side-effects.

The result of the study is following: 4 out of 8 patients that were given CBD had no seizure during the study and another 3 patients noticed significant improvement of their state. CBD did not have any effects only on 1 patient out of 8. In placebo group, the state of 6 patients has not changed at all and state of 1 patient has fundamentally improved.


CBD and epileptic seizures tested on animals

Researches carried out on mice have shown that CBD reduces seizures caused by pentylenetetrazol intake (PTZ) and electric shocks (Shirazizand et al 2013). CBD also had anti-epileptic effects in other two cases of simulated animal seizures (Jones et al. 2012).

In other pilocarpine seizure model, CBD has significantly decreased percentage of animals that suffer from the most difficult seizures. In penicilin seizure model, CBD decreases percentage of animals´ mortality because of seizure.

CBD has also significantly decreased percentage of tonic-clonic seizures on tested animals.
According to further research at University in Reading, CBD shows anti-epileptic effects on animal seizure models of temporal lobe (Jones et al 2011).
