Study Finds Marijuana Decreases Pediatric Seizures and Treats Chemo-Induced Nausea
A new study by the Massachusetts General Hospital has found that medical marijuana is an effective treatment for children who suffer from seizures or going through cancer related chemotherapy. The study was published Monday by the American Academy of Pediatrics Journal.
The researchers conducted 11 studies of medical marijuana on epilepsy and 6 on chemotherapy. The findings showed that cannabidiol (CBD) from the cannabis plant decreased seizures in young patients. Dr. Shane Shucheng Wong and Dr. Timothy Wilens, both psychiatrists at Massachusetts General Hospital, concluded that medical marijuana has two therapeutic uses for pediatrics; seizure reduction and nausea relief from chemotherapy, according to the Science Daily. The doctors also found that medical marijuana worked better on chemotherapy patients than anti-nausea drugs.
