A compound derived from marijuana plants, cannabidiol oil, is showing promise for treating intractable seizures.
Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham are presenting preliminary results from their research. So far, 51 subjects have participated in the trials. Approximately half had significantly fewer seizures over the span of six months. Two patients had no seizures while taking cannabidiol oil, but nine people dropped out of the study because of side effects.
