RESULTS:

CBD treatment yielded a significant positive effect on seizure load. Most of the children (66/74, 89%) reported reduction in seizure frequency: 13 (18%) reported 75-100% reduction, 25 (34%) reported 50-75% reduction, 9 (12%) reported 25-50% reduction, and 19 (26%) reported <25% reduction. Five (7%) patients reported aggravation of seizures which led to CBD withdrawal. In addition, we observed improvement in behavior and alertness, language, communication, motor skills and sleep. Adverse reactions included somnolence, fatigue, gastrointestinal disturbances and irritability leading to withdrawal of cannabis use in 5 patients.

CONCLUSIONS:

The results of this multicenter study on CBD treatment for intractable epilepsy in a population of children and adolescents are highly promising. Further prospective, well-designed clinical trials using enriched CBD medical cannabis are warranted.

For me personally, CBD oil also helps with my anxiety. But even though it really helps me, I believe that everyone should consult a specialist before using this product.
Well, to be honest with you, this question is becoming more and more relevant. In the current reality, it is difficult to control your emotional state and fight anxiety in every possible way. I've been using CBD for a long time. Well, it's probably better to say that in different versions. I've tried gummies, CBD oil, and CBD flowers. The result suits me, as I got rid of the eternal fits of anxiety, as well as from these hellish headaches. All this made my life unbearable. Yes, I know that in some countries it is illegal. Also, many still do not try CBD just for this reason. This is stupid. Now it's a new level, and you don't need to equate CBD with a drug. There are many scientific articles to justify my words. If you are interested, read it. So, if this topic was raised, I can recommend Organic CBD Nugs. There you can find not only useful information on this product, but also buy a quality product. I hope it was useful to you.
