The Endocannabinoid system is a central regulatory system, which affects a wide range of biological processes, such as our immune system, nervous system and all organs of the body. CBD helps to restore the balance of the whole body, not just one area, such as most supplements. Drug-resistant epilepsy is one of the most common conditions for treatment with cannabinoids. evere childhood epilepsies are characterized by frequent seizures, neurodevelopmental delays, and impaired quality of life – that’s why,In these treatment-resistant epilepsies, families often seek alternative treatments.
CBD and drug-resistant epilepsy tests method:
The study was conducted in the United States, using CBD enriched in cannabidiol in children with drug-resistant epilepsy. Parents were presented with a survey. Nineteen responses met the following inclusion criteria for the study: a diagnosis of epilepsy and current use of cannabidiol-enriched cannabis. Thirteen children had Dravet syndrome, four had Doose syndrome, and one each had Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and idiopathic epilepsy. The average number of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) tried before using cannabidiol-enriched cannabis was 12. Sixteen (84%) of the 19 parents reported a reduction in their child’s seizure frequency while taking cannabidiol-enriched cannabis. Of these, two (11%) reported complete seizure freedom, eight (42%) reported a greater than 80% reduction in seizure frequency, and six (32%) reported a 25-60% seizure reduction. Other beneficial effects included increased alertness, better mood, and improved sleep.
CBD and Dravet syndrome:
Dravet syndrome is a relatively rare genetic disorder manifesting in brain dysfunction, which one of the symptoms is an epileptic who can’t be treated. Epileptic seizures occur spontaneously or may also be caused by a change in temperature, geometric patterns, sounds or other external factors. These seizures last up to 30 minutes, hence they cause extreme exhaustion of a sick child. Because the results of research applied CBD in the treatment of Dravet syndrome, CBD is available and used in extremely rare diseases. The results of using CBD are so effective and promising that now under the influence of parents of children with epilepsy and groups of doctors, the FDA and European organizations have been asked to start research, on the safety and effectiveness of CBD in the treatment of other drug-resistant epilepsy syndromes in children .
The reason why CBD and other cannabis compounds work well in so many areas is the endocannabinoid system, the central health and healing component of every human being. It should be remembered that the use of isolated cannabidiol may not be as effective as pure CBD extract with naturally occurring phytocannabinoids. In our production, we use SFE (supercritical fluid extraction), i.e. extraction with supercritical fluid. It is a form of obtaining plant extracts, free of harmful chemicals and solvents that are harmful to our health.
