Is there any evidence for the the heath benefits of CBD oil for people with CP?

    Hello there,

    Thanks for posting your question. We've been looking into this for you and so far we have been unable to find any medical evidence of CBD oil being beneficial for people with Cerebral Palsy. There are lots of stories on the internet from people who have used CBD oil for a range of illnesses and they swear by it, but in terms of clear medical research, we can't find any. That's not to say that research isn't being carried out, we just haven't been able to find any information on it so far. There have been studies in the US and some other countries. We're always researching so if we do come across some helpful and credible research we will be sure to include information on the website.

    If you do manage to come across some information, do let us know.

    Many thanks

    Can I recommend the united patients alliance on facebook here? They have information on this plus a linked site with CBD oil reviews too.
