The benefits of CBD are now scientifically confirmed. A study showed that the cannabinoid, reduced seizures in kids with epilepsy, compared to kids who took a placebo. The kids in the study had a rare form of Epilepsy called Dravet syndrome, which causes seizures resistant to other drugs. With CBD they had half as many seizures over the course of the 14 week study. University of Melbourne, Epilepsy researcher Samuel F. Berkovic said
"This trial represents the beginning of solid evidence for the use of cannabinoids (CBD) in epilepsy."
