The world famous Toronto-based children's hospital Sick Kids has completed its study on cannabis oil and its use as a treatment for epilepsy in children. 

The study involved 20 children with Dravet Syndrome and showed very strong results for patients. 

Dr. Blathnaid McCoy, a paediatric neurologist at Sick Kids outlined the results, “We saw a seizure reduction median of 70% percent,” says Dr. McCoy, “two of kids became seizure free. Among the others, 63% of the kids had a reduction of seizures, which is very comparable to other studies.” 

McKnight went onto clarify that she does not believe cannabis oil is a cure for Dravet syndrome but does believe it is a viable treatment that insurance companies should cover.
