Many people who look to natural remedies to address common, troublesome, and/or treatment-resistant medical issues, or to address uncomfortable side effects of necessary medical interventions. One natural treatment that has gained momentum in recent years is the application of essential oils as an adjunct treatment option.

Most research in the use of CBD hemp oil in children is related to its use in the treatment of
seizure disorders and epilepsy, but there are a few other areas were research has been conducted or

Another possible application of CBD hemp oil in children is in the treatment of anxiety and/or insomnia.
One case report using CBD hemp oil documented a decrease in anxiety and an improvement in sleep
quality in a 10-year-old female patient. In this case report, the patient had received pharmaceutical
interventions with negative side effects, and it was noted that there were no negative side effects the
resulted from using CBD hemp oil as an adjunct treatment.
Oncology & CBD
Edible CBD oil has been documented to to significantly reduce or completely eliminate emesis (vomiting) in
pediatric oncology patients with little to no obvious or significant side effects as long as close monitoring
by medical professionals and careful administration of dosages is followed.
Overall, the research related to the use of CBD hemp oil in children looks promising, especially as it
relates to its use as part of the treatment protocol for the conditions mentioned above. The research
and case reports mentioned above show promising results with minimal significant negative side effects.
As always, more research is needed and guidance by healthcare providers is essential.
