Cebollin, California, March 24, 2019.
The best cbd for treating epileptic seizures may be 100 mg of cbd Candy High Candy, which is the most common brand in the United States, according to research published Monday in the American Journal of Pharmacology.
The Candy High brand has been the most popular candy in the U.S. since 1999, and is also the most used for treating certain forms of epilepsy, according the research.
The study also found that the Candy High candy contains higher levels of certain substances called terpenes that may protect against seizure-causing chemicals.
A similar study by researchers at Johns Hopkins University found the terpenoids in the same candy may also reduce the frequency and severity of seizures in children.
The findings from the American Pharmacological Society and Johns Hopkins are the first to demonstrate a link between cbd and seizure reduction, said lead author Dr. Christopher B. Ritchie, a neurosurgeon and clinical professor at Johns’ School of Medicine.
“This is an area where we are really starting to get a better understanding,” said Dr. Rohan Bhatnagar, who was not involved in the research and works in the department of neurology at Johns.
“The fact that these compounds, terpenols, are linked to seizure reduction is exciting.
They are likely a mechanism of action that works by helping to prevent seizures.”
The researchers found that people who were given a daily dose of 100 mg Candy High, which contains up to 500 milligrams of terpenoid, had fewer seizures overall and fewer of the most severe forms of seizures, including seizures that lasted up to four hours.
People who were also given the same dose of Candy High had fewer severe seizures overall but more severe forms.
Both groups had fewer of those forms of seizure.
Candy High has also been used as a treatment for seizures in people with Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy.
The researchers also found the effects of the terpene were most significant in children younger than 18.
The most common forms of the seizures were bilateral, bilateral and partial.
The terpenoidal levels of Candy Premium Candy High and Candy Premium, which contain up to 200 mg terpens, were also associated with less severe forms and less frequent seizures.
The results suggest that the terphenes in the two brands may have beneficial effects on epilepsy and other neurological disorders, said Dr BhatNagar.
Cebollina, California is a major sugar-producing region in the Central Valley.
In a paper published online in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. Bhatnar said that there may be a link among the terpinoids and seizure severity.
“There may be mechanisms whereby the terpentones may be able to reduce seizure severity, and this may be beneficial for certain neurological disorders,” he said.
“We think it is important to investigate further the mechanism of these terpenol effects.”
