Cannabis Research: Epilepsy
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that causes intense bursts of electrical energy within the brain. This causes a temporary but recurring disorder, how the brain works - which leads to an epileptic seizure. An epileptic seizure can, among many other symptoms, loss of consciousness, sensory disturbances and convulsions Run.
1) cannabidiol shows antiepileptiforme properties and counteracts Krämofen; in vitro and in vivo (cannabidiol displays Antipileptiform and antiseizure Properties In Vitro and In Vivo - 2010)
This research aimed to experimentally explore the wider effects of CBD on its anticonvulsant properties in animals and in isolated tissue. It was found that CBD and its effects on the CB1 receptors showed the potential to inhibit epileptiform activity in isolated tissue samples and to reduce the severity of seizures in living animals. Published in the "U.S. National Library of Medicine."
2) Cannabidivarin has an antispasmodic effect in mice and rats (Cannabidivarin is anticonvulsant in mouse and rats - 2012)
This research was aimed to test the effect of the cannabinoid CBDV for cramps, such as those caused by epilepsy. It has been found that the use of such a cannabinoid effectively prevented convulsions and appeared to have no adverse effects on normal functions. Published in the "British Journal of Pharmacology."
3) Marijuana, Endocannabinoids and epilepsy: potentials and challenges for an improved therapeutic intervention (Marijuana, endocannabinoids, and epilepsy: potential and challenges for improved therapeutic intervention - 2013)
This research is a meta-study, which describes that the results of many other studies show apparently that cannabinoids and marijuana potentially beneficial for those act who suffer from neurological disorders such as epilepsy. Published in the "U.S. National Library of Medicine."
