The authors report that 31% of the patients had ≥ 50% seizure reduction at three months, 31% at six months, 28% at 12 months and 20% at 24 months. The reduction was more pronounced if cannabidiol was combined with clobazam. The study concludes that cannabidiol is a treatment option in children and young adults with severe refractory epilepsy, but close evaluation of its effects is important to taper off treatment in case a treatment effect is lacking.
