Positive results from medicinal cannabidiol on children with severe behavioural problems


A media release from the Murdoch Institute outlined positive results of medicinal cannabidiol’s effect on children with severe behavioural problems. This was a pilot study meaning a further study with a larger sample size will take place this year. If successful, this type of medicine could become common place for kids with behavioural issues such as self-harming and screaming in public.

Anneliese Farrer spoke to Associate Professor Daryl Efron for more information on the study.
