Re: “Medical Miracle: More Proof Cannabis Treats Some Incurable Epilepsy

My son has Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and is currently part of the Epidolex study. He has been on 4 anti-epileptic drugs since he was 3 y/o, and his seizures have never been able to be controlled. With CBD he has experienced a decrease in his seizures that is over 80%. (The study only counts the reduction in drop seizures, he has other types of seizures that have stopped, but are not counted in the statistics for the study.) He is much more alert and we have been able to reduce his other medications all of which have disabling side effects. He is also more vocal and has greater motor control than he has had in years.
