My Thoughts on CBDPure:

1. Royal CBD

CBD oil from hemp has only trace amounts of THC — typically below 0.3% — and thus can’t produce any psychoactive effects.

If you’re looking for something potent, try CBDPure capsules — each softgel is infused with 25 mg of full-spectrum CBD for easier dosing and extra convenience.

The Royal CBD oil comes in three different potencies: 250 mg, 500 mg, 1000 mg, and 2500 mg. The strongest option gives you 83 mg of CBD/mL. I would recommend this variant for stronger symptoms. Those who need noticeably higher doses of CBD may find the weaker bottles cost-prohibitive.

There’s still much to be learned about how CBD interacts with other anti-seizure drugs.  

Sometimes, children and adults who have LGS or Dravet syndrome have some difficulties taking oral medication due to difficulty swallowing, behavioral problems, and/or cognitive issues. It may be a challenge to get your child to take any medication, and you might need to develop strategies to help with this process.

A 2019 review of studies on Epidiolex showed a sustained seizure frequency reduction of between 30 and 63 percent.   Additionally, seizures were about half as severe and the postictal (after seizure) state was less severe as well.

Interactions

A 2017 study published in JAMA found that 26 percent of products purchased online contained less CBD than their labels claimed.  

In fact, the FDA has issued warnings to many CBD businesses for illegal practices, including those related to the marketing of their products. In some cases, actual CBD content was negligible or less than 1 percent of what the label claimed.

Seizures are caused by erratic electrical activity in the brain that can spread and cause uncontrolled physical movements and/or alterations of consciousness. Most anti-seizure drugs work by slowing down excitatory nerve activity in the brain.

A multitude of CBD-containing products are on the market, and some people have chosen to use them for seizure control. This trend is likely to grow, especially since the 2018 Farm Bill made hemp-derived products, including CBD, legal at the federal level.

CBD oil is a carrier medium mixed with CBD and an oil such as olive, coconut, or other indigestible oil and can also contain other endocannabinoids depending on whether you buy isolated, broad, or full-spectrum products.

This innovative company, which started in 2015, hosts a wide variety of products which it sells nationally and internationally.

Hemp derived extract was given to 138 patients for epileptic seizures [14] . Sixty-eight percent of the study respondents reported decreased seizure severity or frequency from the effects of CBD. About 2/3 reported other effects of CBD such as better sleep and improved alertness. Adverse events were reported by 22% and included diarrhea, fatigue, and increased seizures.

Gastaut Syndrome and Dravet Syndrome are severe refractory forms of epilepsy that begin in childhood and are resistant to most treatment. Current available treatments fail to control seizures in most cases thus making the identification of new medications necessary.
