New Study Questions The Effects of Epidiolex for Seizures

A new study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology questions whether Epidiolex effectively treats severe epileptic seizures.
.
“Now the authors of the new study claim that the reduction in seizures witnessed in the trials could be attributed to a drug more commonly used to treat epilepsy, clobazam, which was also given to many of the patients in the trials.”
.
“And I was awestruck,” he told Analytical Cannabis. “I was flabbergasted when I saw that 50 percent in one study and 60 percent in the other study were actually using this other drug, clobazam.”
.
“Clobazam is an anti-seizure medication approved to treat children with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. All three of the FDA-cited studies provided clobazam to some of the participants to take “concomitantly” with CBD. Now Groeneveld and his colleagues are questioning whether CBD’s supposed anti-seizure effects could actually be due to the commonly used anti-seizure medication.”

We believe and support CBD for many conditions. We also support additional research to dial in which components of cannabis work independently or in conjunction with other medications.
We hope this new study is a positive step in continuing to research CBD, THC and other cannabis components.
