Adults are not the only good candidates for CBD, it can also help the lives of children. CBD has been a hot topic in regards to children recently. This due to many famous cases that show how it can help improve the overall life of a sick child. CBD can also be used in aiding a child’s already healthy lifestyle in order to help keep them balanced.
There have been many recent studies about the effect CDB can have on children. In particular in regards to children with seizures due to the famous case of Charlotte Figi. This is young girl who suffered from Dravet Syndrome and experienced 300 seizures a day before beginning treatment with CBD. These studies have shown an overall decrease in seizures for children treated with CBD. There is even a small percentage that became completely seizure free.
The first interest of parents or guardians in regards to their children is safety. According to the World Health Organization, there is no health risk to using CBD: “To date, there is no evidence of the recreational use of CBD or any public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” So whether your child has a specific health concern or you are just interested in adding CBD to your child’s already healthy lifestyle, you can be certain that it is a safe product to use.
It is recommended that children start with small doses of 0.5mg of CBD per pound of child’s weight. Then the dosage be increased by 0.5mg till the desired effect is reached.
