ANOTHER PATIENT WITH CEREBRAL PALSY TREATED WITH CANNABIDIOL AND THC-ACID

I just met in follow-up with a 17 y/o male with Cerebral Palsy and his mother. For the past year or so, the young man was being treated with a wide range CBD:THC capsules. His spasticity and minor seizures were nearly completely controlled.

His seizures, although recently rare, only came at night – which is pretty common for many of this children, so we doubled the CBD at night. This led to further, near complete, seizure cessation. His spasticity was also a bit better.

Recently we added low dose THC-Acid and the change has been significant. There is much less spasticity and the minor seizures are all gone, other than a minor short lived seizure once per month – as opposed to dozens per day one year ago.

Here is a good review article:
