I want more research of Cannabidiol, the nonintoxicating component of the cannabis plant that has shown some medical promise — particularly for the treatment of children with intractable epilepsy.
I want that research to comply fully with federal law and to meet the highest standards of medical practice as outlined by the the U. I want children with intractable epilepsy, or with any other illness that qualified medical professionals believe could be treated, to receive a purified, pharmacy-grade CBD oil — meaning a substance free from THC, the intoxicating and addictive component of cannabis that is especially harmful to the developing brain.
First and foremost, we need a pharmacy-grade, purified CBD oil product because children should not ingest any amount of THC — even as little as the 0. If a child needs milligrams of CBD a day, as many do, this adds up to a lot of THC administered in oil products that are not pharmacy-grade!
Secondly, we need a purified oil because that is what will help the world glean the most informed science. I have no financial interest in any maker of CBD oil and receive no compensation of any kind from the maker of any CBD oil product.
But there is a right way to help and a wrong way to help. The right way seeks to advance treatment based on the rigors of responsible science and with careful regard for the interests of public health and safety.
The right way is transparent, accountable and complies with the requirements of both state and federal law — regulations firmly established to protect consumer safety. Unfortunately, the wrong way looks a lot like many of the CBD oil bills state lawmakers are approving these days.
However, there are things about this substance that must be made clear — and firmly underscore why it should not be legislated for sale to the public: This is especially troubling because THC has been found to be a pro-convulsant.
You can drink a whole bottle of it and never get high.
Unfortunately, news reports and legislative hearings focus pretty much only on success stories. Sadly, we hear very little about the dashed hopes of many families whose children are not responding to the substance.
Many of these families may have uprooted themselves from their home states, leaving behind a family-and-friend network of support, treating neurologists, jobs and medical insurance coverage. This alone should make Americans stop to question seriously what is going on here. Why are these drug producers wanting to test their substance outside the U.
GW is working in compliance with federal law and the rigors of responsible science — and it is operating about 20 test sites for Epidiolex at major American research centers and universities. GW Pharmaceuticals can tell us exactly what is in the drug it makes.
GW Pharmaceuticals even is giving away the substance to children who qualify for its research studies. The company is tracking outcomes very closely — as it is required to do by federal law.
In pediatrics, Insys plans to pursue development of treatments for Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and Dravet Syndrome, which are orphan indications. Which brings me to the U. Food and Drug Administration.
The FDA should take a more active role in speeding this particular drug — and other CBD-oil products shown through the rigorous standards of responsible, ethical science to have efficacy — to market because real medicine is real compassion, too.
Anything less is a poor — and perhaps even dangerous — substitute. Christian Thurstone is a world-recognized associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Colorado Denver.Activities for ‘Charlotte’s Web’ by E.B.
