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.

      On this episode of Let’s be Blunt, Montel speaks with Dr. Jordan Tishler about the importance of patient safety not being lost in the process of adult use legalization. Dr Tishler graduated from both Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, trained at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and is currently faculty at both the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He has spent many years working with the underserved, particularly providing care for veterans. Having treated countless patients harmed by alcohol and drugs, his observation that he had never seen a cannabis overdose led him to delve deeply into the science of cannabis safety and treatment. He is a frequent speaker and author on a variety of topics related to the medical applications of cannabis, and he is the President of the Association of Cannabis Specialists, which aims to educate clinicians, lawmakers, and the industry about best practices and necessary tools for proper patient care.

      On this episode of Let’s be Blunt, Montel talks with Mark and Christy Zartler. They are parents to twin daughters, one of which, Kara, suffers from Autism and Cerebral Palsy and struggles with severe self-injurious behavior related to her condition. Whole plant cannabis has helped to relieve some of her symptoms when traditional medications didn’t. That wouldn’t be a problem if they lived in a legal medical cannabis state, but they live in Texas. The Zartler’s risk the wrath of law enforcement and Child Protective Services (when Kara was younger) in order to bring their daughter the only medication that brings her relief from her self injurious behavior. They are sharing their story in hopes of helping other families who are coping with similar situations.

      Montel talks with Kentiuky native Jim Higdon on this episode of Let’s Be Blunt. Jim wrote the first non-fiction account of the Cornbread Mafia which tells the story of the biggest domestic marijuana syndicate in American history, which took place in his hometown of Marion County, Kentucky. With the books success, he became a nationally recognized cannabis journalist, covering Kentucky for the Washington Post and cannabis policy for POLITICO. In 2018, he left journalism to co-found Cornbread Hemp.

      On this episode of Let’s be Blunt, Montel talks with Lisa Quarrell, a mother who lives in East Kilbride, Scotland, who has been tirelessly campaigning for a National Health Service-funded prescription that her son desperately needs. Her 8-year-old son, Cole, was diagnosed with a rare form of severe epilepsy as a baby and suffered up to 20 seizures a day. He had undergone brain surgery and tried 20 different anti-epileptic drugs before before he was prescribed a life-saving cannabis oil which has helped him tremendously. The coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult for her to afford the medication since the fundraising nights she was having were put on hold. She has since been campaigning to have cannabis oil and medications provided and paid for by the NHS but she continues to struggle with the bureaucracy of the Scottish government and NHS Scotland.

      Imagine your child is sick…and then you discover that there is something that can bring them relief…BUT you must break the law in order to access that it, and risk the wrath of law enforcement, and worse yet, the threat of Child Protective Services knocking on your door one day and taking your child from you. Would you take the risk to help your child? The new documentary “Weediatrics”, explores stories of families at the heart of this issue. These brave parents went on camera to tell their stories, in hope of creating a greater understanding and empathy for desperate families across the country in similar situations. On this episode of Let’s Be Blunt, Montel explores this topic with the films producer, Erin O’Hearn.
