Results of a new study on the treatment of CBD (RSHO-X™) oil for drug-resistant epilepsy in children and adolescents are promising after demonstrating good efficacy and tolerability.
Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) has announced that a clinical study conducted in Mexico using its Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ cannabidiol (CBD) oil has been completed and published in the EC Neurology (ECNE), an internationally peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles related to worldwide research in neuroscience.
“We are encouraged by the study’s results and look forward to understanding more about CBD’s potential effects as we continue to conduct research on this topic,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “There are many people who are already using our products to experience a variety of health and wellness benefits. We believe that with the added assurance of these results, there will be many other people who may take interest in our products.”
The treatment yielded a positive effect on seizure reduction after 3 months. Most of the children 25/37 (67.5%) reported a reduction in seizure frequency; a 100% reduction in 1 (2.2%), more than 80% reduction in 11 (25%), 50% or more in 25 (67.5%) and less than 50% reduction was reported in 12 (27.2%) patients, respectively.
“For many children, there are countless pharmaceutical drugs that either don’t work for them or produce a variety of harmful side effects,” said Dr. Carlos G. Aguirre-Velázquez, a globally recognized pediatric neurologist and lead researcher on the study. “We are optimistic that this study will be one of many that showcases the potential for hemp CBD oil to be safe and useful.”
