The gist of the article is that cannabis (marijuana) contains many active compounds, some of which may have medical benefits and that a growing amount of evidence points to CBD being the most important one.

The CBD oil research study in question looked at a group of epileptic children on a 3 month trial of using CBD oil. The study found that some children benefited from the CBD oil while other experienced adverse effects. The summation of the report is that more CBD oil research is required to see if their are benefits for sufferers of child epilepsy.

 

CBD or Cannabidiol is one of around 80 cannabinoids found in cannabis plants and along with THC is one of the 2 major component compounds. CBD is considered to have a wider range of medical applications than CBD and is a non-intoxicating compound that does not give the user a ‘high’ which can be attributed to THC.
