CBD-enriched medical cannabis for intractable pediatric epilepsy: The current Israeli experience
A retrospective study was conducted in five Israeli pediatric clinics examining the effect of
cannabidiol (CBD) on children with intractable epilepsy. The results showed that CBD had a
positive effect on seizure load and also was associated with improvements in behavior,
language, communication, motor skills, and sleep. Some adverse events were also reported
which included drowsiness, fatigue, gastrointestinal disturbances and irritability.
Further clinical trials using CBD are warranted to validate these findings.
