Tilray® 2:100 Product Shows Promise in Canada’s First Pediatric Study of Mixed THC/CBD Medical Cannabis Oil for Children with Drug-Resistant Epilepsy
NANAIMO, BRITISH COLUMBIA – Tilray Inc., a global pioneer in medical cannabis production and distribution, is pleased to announce that a study featuring Tilray 2:100, a medical cannabis oil containing high amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) and conservative amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), has shown promising results for children with drug-resistant epilepsy (DRE) due to Dravet Syndrome. The findings of the Phase II trial, which was designed and conducted by researchers at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto (SickKids), were published today in the peer-reviewed medical journal Annals of Neurology.
A limitation in this study concerns the small number of participants, the majority of whom were already taking a prescribed antiepileptic drug. Tilray donated product for the trial and funded the research. Next steps include additional research with more participants and variable doses of combined THC/CBD.
