CBD and Epilepsy

Does CBD help people with Epilepsy?


Epilepsy is a group of neurological disorders characterized by recurrent epileptic seizures. Epileptic seizures are episodes that can vary from brief and nearly undetectable periods to long periods of vigorous shaking. These episodes can result in physical injuries, including occasionally broken bones. In epilepsy, seizures have a tendency to recur and, as a rule, have no immediate underlying cause. Isolated seizures that are provoked by a specific cause such as poisoning are not deemed to represent epilepsy. People with epilepsy may be treated differently in various areas of the world and experience varying degrees of social stigma due to their condition.

Research Studies on CBD and Epilepsy



The Study

Researchers reviewed several studies of CBD and Treatment-Resistant Epilepsy. Results indicate that CBD use seems effective and safe, although on-going research is recommended.

From the Article

"Safety and efficacy findings support use (of CBD) in treatment-resistant epilepsy."

Study From Science Direct edit

The Study

Researchers gave CBD Oil to children with Treatment-Resistant Epilepsy. 74 children were involved, and each was given CBD daily for at least 3 months. Results indicate that CBD use had a significant reducing effect on seizure frequency.

From the Article

"The results of this multicenter study on CBD treatment for intractable epilepsy in a population of children and adolescents are highly promising. CBD-enriched medical cannabis is a promising treatment for intractable epilepsy."


The Study

Researchers administered CBD to people with Insomnia, people with Epilepsy and healthy volunteers over a ten year period. They found that CBD is non-toxic and that it improved both the insomniacs and epileptic's conditions.

From the Article

"Seven out of the eight epileptics receiving cannabidiol had improvement of their disease state, whereas only one placebo patient improved."


The Study

Researchers examined the cases of 670 epilepsy patients using CBD. They compared the effectiveness of Broad Spectrum vs. CBD Isolate and found that Broad Spectrum CBD seem to present a better therapeutic profile than purified CBD, at least in this population of patients with refractory epilepsy.

From the Article

"Two thirds of patients reported improvement in the frequency of seizures."

Study From Molecules edit

The Study

Researchers examine the current scientific understanding of CBD and THC as therapeutic compounds. They highlight a large number of studies showing Cannabinoids to be effective for inflammation, pain and other conditions.

From the Article

"There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that cannabinoids are beneficial for a range of clinical conditions, including pain, inflammation, epilepsy, sleep disorders, the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, anorexia, schizophrenia and other conditions."
