Medical Marijuana, Inc. announced today that its subsidiary HempMeds Mexico garnered national news headlines across Mexico for the positive results of a recent study conducted by Mexican physician Dr. Saul Garza Morales on the effects of its RSHO-X™ product in treating children with severe epilepsy. HempMeds Mexico was the first company to receive government import permits for its cannabidiol (CBD) oil product Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X via the Mexican Health Department COFEPRIS.
An article from Mexico newspaper Reforma, “Ayuda cannabidiol a 84% de pacientes,” or “Cannabidiol helps 84% of patients,” explained how 84 percent of children with epilepsy treated with RSHO-X™ halved the number of seizures they suffer from, according to this first clinical study on the use of cannabis in patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome in Mexico.
“We are proud that our cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil product, without THC, has enabled 17% of patients in the study to experience 100 percent relief from their seizures, the best results of any product/medication in the world regarding the reduction of seizures in Lennox-Gastaut patients,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “It is exciting to see such widespread news coverage of these study results by the Mexico media, as studies that prove the therapeutic benefits of CBD like Dr. Garza’s study will continue to help fuel less restrictive medical cannabis programs not only in Mexico, but across the globe. In addition, as news spreads of this revolutionary treatment for diseases such as epilepsy, more patients and families that suffer from debilitating medical conditions will receive help with medical marijuana.”
The study included 39 patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a severe form of pediatric epilepsy that typically develops before the age of 4. Of those 39 patients, who took up to 5-7mg CBD/kg progressive doses of RSHO-X™ 5000MG, 84% experienced a 50% or greater reduction in motor seizures; 53% reported better than a 75% reduction in seizures; and seven reported a complete elimination of all seizures (17%) over a four-month period, with zero reported side effects.
