gwg-interviewThe stratospheric rise of medical marijuana as a possible recognized treatment for epilepsy, now underway, is an example of what can be achieved through the sharing of personal stories on the Internet and social media, according to a leading expert in the field.

Daniel Friedman, MD, New York University (NYU) Langone School of Medicine, is a coauthor a review article, “Cannabinoids in the Treatment of Epilepsy,” published in the September 10 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine.

“It’s very much ‘watch this space’ at the moment,” Dr Friedman commented to Medscape Medical News. “There is emerging evidence on efficacy. The preclinical evidence is reasonably strong for cannabidiol, similar to that for a new pharmaceutical for epilepsy. The clinical data are still early. So far the studies have been small and methodologically flawed, but results are encouraging.”
