Effectiveness of Cannabis strains at reducing seizure rate in a zebrafish model of epilepsy

Cannabis has been used for centuries to treat epilepsy and related convulsive disorders. While Anecdotal evidence suggests a therapeutic benefit in some patients, there is little information as to what compounds within Cannabis plants may have medicinal benefits. This work will highlight specific strains (which CEPG will grow locally in Jackson’s Arm, NL) that will potentially provide effective seizure control in epileptic patients.
