At its recent 70th annual meeting, the American Epilepsy Society (AES) highlighted a study focusing on the potential of cannabidiol (CBD) to treat the frequency and severity of seizures in children who have drug-resistant epilepsies. India Globalization Capital (NYSE MKT: IGC), an innovator in developing cannabis-based combination therapies to treat pain and other conditions, is currently applying the revolutionary seizure-treating potential of CBD to another population: domestic pets, and the company is addressing the 5 percent of dogs and just over 2 percent of cats in the United States that experience seizures. “Cannabidiol is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Both anecdotal evidence and pre-clinical research have suggested that CBD may have a broad range of beneficial therapeutic uses in humans and animals including pain mitigation, epileptic seizures and wasting disease eating disorders (cachexia). Animal studies have also shown promise for CBD’s anticonvulsant efficacy in multiple species.”
