Further research supports the use of cannabis oil in reducing seizures in kids

The University of Saskatchewan has been conducting research on kids with epilepsy, using controlled amounts of medicinal cannabis oil, with the results being positive.

Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, say preliminary results suggest medical cannabis oil can reduce or completely stop seizures in children experiencing severe and drug-resistant epilepsy.

The study, funded by Jim Pattison’s Children’s Hospital Foundation, monitored seven children with severe paediatric epilepsy, a debilitating condition that can cause children to suffer as many as 1,200 seizures a month.

Sativa Group PLC (NEX:SATI) is a seed to consumer medicinal cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD) wellness business, focused on the smart-sourcing of the raw material, advanced extraction, manufacture, testing, distribution, and research & development of medicinal cannabis and CBD products.
