" Some parents of children with extreme disorders ... have taken to treating their kids with CBD.  "

It may not be surprising that the one of the main active chemical compounds in cannabis, Cannabidiol (CBD), is helpful in healing some sick people. It has known anti-nausea, anti-anxiety, even anti-psychotic properties.

Medical marijuana is practically curing some people from their chronic seizures or helping them deal with the side effects of autism.

However, it may be surprising to learn that a growing number of children are being given CBD. Parents of children with extreme disorders, unhappy with traditional Western medicine (pills), have taken to treating their kids with CBD oil, an extracted active chemical compound found in cannabis that is not the “high”-inducing THC.

 

The Healing Effects of Cannabidiol

In clinical and case studies, CBD has been amazingly helpful in calming some of the harshest side effects of extreme forms of autism, and halting the seizures in children with epilepsy.

The LA Times covered the story of one such child, who was suffering from what are known as Gran Mal seizures:

In the 14 months since, the little boy has been swallowing droppers full of a solution made mostly of cannabidiol, or CBD, the second most prominent of marijuana's 100 or so cannabinoids. Unlike the dominant THC, cannabidiol is not psychoactive, so the sweet-tasting infusion Jayden takes four times a day doesn't make him high.

Down from 22 prescription pills per day to four, he now eats solid food, responds to his father's incessant requests for kisses and dances in his Modesto living room to the "Yo Gabba Gabba!" theme song. The frequency and intensity of his seizures have been greatly reduced.

While this method of treatment is still controversial, it seems likely that as more and more studies are done, and the news continues to cover stories like this, CBD and medical cannabis in general will become a more accepted alternative to traditional medicine.
