One of the most profound applications of CBD we have seen here at Green Dot Labs its use for epileptic seizures. Given how perilous seizures are to young and elderly alike, and how they detract from a young childs’ body’s ability to focus on its own growth and development, we are hoping that more and more families consider the use of cannabis-derived CBD medicine to treat their children.
There are many families that have moved to Colorado in hopes of treating their child’s pediatric epilepsy. See the story of 2 pediatric patients in particular here and check out this PubMed report about a study involving parents treating their children with CBD after trying, on average, 12 different pharmaceutical anti epileptic drugs (AEDs).
Green Dot Labs has identified and worked with cannabis strains that have contained between 10-65% CBD, and are currently most focused on our CBD strain Good Medicine (Harlequin x Appalachia) which shows test results with 40-60% CBD. We will soon be releasing a highly researched and tested line of CBD capsules so that patients without access to methods of vaporization can benefit from our high CBD cannabis oil.
If you are in need of a specially formulated CBD medicine and are a Colorado medical marijuana patient please contact us through the website.
After seeing such black and white results from CBD as it treats seizures it seems like a crime that families all over the country cannot access this non toxic and highly effective treatment. It is our hope that soon cannabis and all of its chemical compounds will be seen for what they are, de-scheduled and de-criminalized.
