Hemp Oil Cuts Seizure Frequency in Half

Research from the New York University Langone Comprehensive Epilepsy Center has found that cannabidiol, a non psychoactive extract of hemp oil, significantly reduces seizure rates in epileptics. Scientists there tested 120 children and young adults with epilepsy and found that the cannabidiol group’s number of seizures per month decreased from 12.4 to 5.9 compared to a statistically insignificant change in the placebo group.
