Cannabis oil with THC may help treat kids with severe epilepsy

A cannabis oil that includes a small amount of the drug that gives pot smokers a high appears to be effective in helping kids with a severe form of epilepsy, a new Canadian study has found.

Researchers at The Hospital for Sick Children have conducted a small study on an experimental oil using 20 children with a form of epilepsy that is notoriously hard to treat, called Dravet Syndrome.

The rare form of epilepsy begins in the first year of life and causes prolonged and frequent seizures. Some children have more than 1,000 seizures a month, leading to significant developmental delays and learning disabilities. The condition is incurable and while traditional epilepsy medications can reduce the frequency of the seizures, they often fail to fully control them.

In recent years, there has been growing interest in cannabis oils as a treatment. One large study published last year in the New England Journal of Medicine found that kids with Dravet Syndrome who were given a cannabis oil along with their regular medications saw their monthly seizures cut in half, with some kids even becoming seizure-free.

Last month, the U.S. FDA approved the first cannabis-based medication to treat two forms of epilepsy in patients 2 years and older.

But that medication and the oil used in the NEJM study contain only CBD, or cannabidiol -- the marijuana ingredient that has been the focus of much of the interest in cannabis for epilepsy control.

This new SickKids study tested a cannabis extract oil with both CBD and a small amount of THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, the marijuana ingredient that produces the euphoric effect pot is known for.

Recent research has suggested that THC-containing cannabis oil might be superior to CBD-only preparations in reducing seizures, but there has been concern about how kids would tolerate such a treatment.

This study found that most of the children saw a significant drop in their seizures after taking the drug for several weeks, with none of their caregivers reporting the kids developed any hallucinatory effects.


The encouraging findings offered a sense of relief for Barry Pogson, whose 5-year-old daughter Kate lived with debilitating seizures that could last up to an hour.

Kate now takes cannabis oil twice a day, and Pogson says she’s almost completely seizure free.

“No more ambulances, no more emergency rooms. It’s amazing. I couldn’t be happier for how well she’s doing,” said Pogson, who lobbied doctors for years to look into the ointment’s medical value.

The study focused on 20 kids with Dravet Syndrome who were an average age of 10. Each was given a product called TIL-TC150, which contains CBD and THC at a ratio of 50:1. It was donated by the oil's manufacturer Tilray, a Canadian cannabis plant extract company that also funded the study.

The study leaders began the children on the product slowly, increasing their dosage slowly over several weeks, though only eight of the patients reached the dose the researchers had set as their target.

For 16-year-old Abigail, who participated in the study and has had Dravet since she was eight months old, the results were astounding.

“Within the first month of the oil, she went from eight to 10 seizures a month to four to five. Over the course of the year, we’re down to less than one every two months,” Abigail’s mother, Laura Weightman, told CTV News.

As Abigail’s seizures decreased, her family has also seen other positive changes, such as her ability to communicate.

“We’ve seen this learning. She’s trying to say new words all the time,” her mother said.

Most of the children developed side effects along the way, including increased sleepiness, decreased appetite and diarrhea. But these effects improved in most as the children developed tolerance to the CBD-THC oil.

"In the participants who reached the target treatment dose we saw a statistically significant reduction in motor seizures, and an increase in seizure-free days compared to those who did not reach the target dose," Dr. Blathnaid McCoy, a neurologist at SickKids who took part in the study, said in a statement.

The higher the dose, the better their seizures were brought under control. And many caregivers reported that the children's quality of life improved significantly.

"We observed promising clinically beneficial effects including a reduction in seizure frequency and improvements in certain aspects of adaptive functioning and quality of life measures," McCoy said.

McCoy says this study adds "to a growing body of evidence that cannabinoids can exert anti-seizure effects and are safe and tolerable in treating pediatric DRE."

She and her team hope their findings will now lead to a larger study of how these oils can help more kids with drug-resistant epilepsy.

The full results appear in the journal, Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology.

More proof that cannabis is a wonder drug that works when nothing else will.


Whole cannabis works the best! How many times does this need to be proved and how many kids must die before whole cannabis oil (Rick Simpson oil) is considered the best choice for epilepsy? Fucking Narcs!!!

Doctors do evil today with doctor drugs; and lawmakers do evil with laws; and lawyers do evil with lawsuits; and universities destroy knowledge; and bible publishers destroy god's word

everything is upside down


I agree cannabis helps wonders, but like any drug has side effects. It is from nature, but then it too induces a change in consciousness. I mean I can get a change in consciousness eating cucumbers, activates heart chakra very violently.

Talk to your plants people.


Each plant has a spirit. Spirit in all.



Kratom is also wonderful, and helps severe pain as strongly as cannabis. Both worked my kidney stones.

It seems cannabis is one of them 'keep in medicine-cabinet' drugs. Unless it becomes a drug, then it may be time to wean off it.

But as replacement for hard Otc drugs like aspirin, it is very harmless.


Those doctor pills literally pull a hole in your stomach and make you shit blood!

And that is just one doctor pill , imagine what the rest of them do. Visit not doctors. Doctors are witchcraft and warned about in the bible.

Hey buddy good and evil are just opinions. Religion is for people who either can't understand the cause and effect reality that we all exist in or can not reconcile said understanding with their emotional needs. An example is denying death because of the instinctive need to survive.

Religious people believe in evil and label anything they don't understand or agree with as such. An example is Christians and Jews and how Nazi Christians killed Jews under the belief that they were evil.

Best of luck buddy but religion has caused far more deaths then both world wars.


BTW Doctors might be misguided at times but they are trying to help just like priests but with science rather then fantasy.

No shit

Canada says "weed is legal" end of story, none of this repeating promise stuff, state by state etc. if its legal in the west its legal in the east.

I think thats amazing. Here, you read the same article 500 times but still have whole states that dont even allow cbd. Would be cool if legal meant legal, not like 100% cool in LA and arrested in Philly or whatever. And NY with expensive oils for the rich only. on 5th ave. Next to all the most expensive stores in the city

Cannabis has never been fully legal here in Denmark, but there was a time police turned their back to a joint/let people smoke in freedom.

Like, not the biggest crime in human history.


Sure I agree cannabis has potential to harm too, but so does alcohol and tobacco. Prohibition can make sense to some small degree. But I think the ends do not justify the means.

At the same time I think while 420 often great events with many good hearted people, the weed tokers should be careful not rebelling. Some or even many may have tendency to rebel due to unhappy with laws or been criminalized/overcriminalized - bad treatment by cops/police/lawmakers or state. Bible warns greatly that rebellion is a heavy sin and the sin of witchcraft and the price is direct hell for anyone who rebels against the state. Clearly rebellion is not the way forward, for Word of God strictly forbids it, calls it the sin of the hethen. Instead I think the way forward is Ghandi's way, strict nonviolence and peace. I also think John Lennon had many things right, though not all things right, for again he rebelled against Religion - even namecalled christianity, not good. Not kindness. Beatles were antichrist and I cannot recommend their music due to it, antichrist inspired lyrics. I just highly respect the man John Lennon, there is a reason they killed him, he knew too much. Too peaceful. Too seeing.

These days its pretty much normalized in the US. But that doesnt stop law enforcement from being dicks. If you live where there is corrupt police, they arrest people and smoke their weed pretty regularly. Like, so fucking common

Well no matter what they do, we must not hate the enemy. But love the enemy. That was jesus' teaching after all.

Who has hate is not made complete in christ.


Love the enemy, give them your weed. But turn them into authorities if they do.

Fight not the enemy. They want you to do that.

Instead give them ghandis way.


Expose evil, but fight it not. If anyone wants your purse, give it to them. And if they want your jacket too. Give it to them.

Be kind to your enemies.

They are the authorities. The way it normally works is you give them the weed and go free. If you cause a problem theyll arrest you. If you try to report them after the fact no one cares. So yes giving them the weed and staying out of the system is the best option.

But it wont reflect badly on them in states where weed isnt fully or mostly legal (in my state we have limited medical but not nugs, unfortunately). Most is black market, and def all actual cannabis buds. And if youre burning a joint thats usually a summons.

Who cares about penalty,  it is only money, then can only take something fro you if you got something to take.


But I totally get your meaning else. I have worked very hard in my own life (and working harder each day), on trying to get totally independent of all. For if I have anything they can take, they will take it. Whoever they are. This world, steals, robs, destroys.

The bible warns the world is not of good (no love in world,worldly things).

Thus if I get $10 fine or $5000 fine, who cares. I guess they won't take my house for a bag.


But I don't smoke anymore.


I think showing care is good, but with regards to who take from you for any reason, it is not them one should fear, but oneself.

Pentalty we learn nothing from.


The state can not teach us, it is better to be our own teacher from own mistakes, because little money pentalty doesn't teach anything really. Anyone ever gotten wiser from a bicycle ticket?

I think we get wiser by respecting the law, and if we can not respect the law,then respecting oneself and trying ones best to be a decent human.


If everyone did that, no more problems in the world.
If everyone strived to be decent human.

I mean if coppps took 100 bags of ur weed, u wouldnt even notice it. Unconditional love feels no pain.

I heard this:

Be kind to the cops
Give them your bag(s)
Empty your pockets to them

It will send both a good signal for yourself and them

It may inspire them to be kinder next time, if not on you


I think it is very wise


Rebellion is a sin (Bible).
No matter who takes from us , be it the street robber (I almost got killed once, due to rebelling against one with a knife), or police


Dont rebel if he stands with a knife in front of yu, give him ur purse


And...to cops... give them your weed. Be kind.
You will not feel pain if you do, but if you rebel, you will feel lotsa pain - from being asshole to cops who took your property, and you may get angry cops at you too, that take more than they did initially


Literally only love works
Ghandi Jesus way


And if cops come knocking, kick in your door.... brew them some coffee, be nice to them

invite them in

kind words

real nice to them

as nice as you possibly can be


because then you will usually also be treated well


be not fake-kind to them, but real kind ... like were they your neighbor
we can not use fakekindness for anything, but real kindness is cherished and remembered

if you want to make a difference, always aim for being the kindest you possible can be


then nothing can harm you


and i know it is very verey very hard to be Kind. Esp when people take what you conceive (to be yours)


Ghandi, Jesus I tell you
they know how to do it


I am not there yet myself, I can only hope to be as good and as great as the great Master Jesus, and as kind like Ghandi

thus I just mention this here... I respect them greatly, they had much wisdom

we have all tried to lose what we think is ours, and then our inner demon come up in red. But these people were Kind as Lambs. Lambs. White lambs. Pure, kind, gentle... just baaha yay baha yay, just take it

Baby lamb... please don't eat animals if you can avoid it, or reduce your consumption

I am not here to judge meat eating, bible is a bit uncertain about it

Just recommending we all reduce our usage of meat, for this is kindness to care for all living


It can aid one spiritually to fast, reduce meat to minimum


For me... that THC has always been about spiritual growing, that is what it does to me. I am forever grateful.
