Dr. Karen Wilcox and Pharmtox Team Conduct Research on Cannabidiol

Dr. Karen Wilcox and her team at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology were featured on ABC4 for their research on cannabidiol (CBD oil) and its effect on epilepsy treatment.

“We have found that CBD can be very efficacious in preclinical studies of different types of seizures and epilepsy models. What we are really hoping to find is if there is a balance between THC and cannabidiol that might work even better in different types of epilepsy", says Wilcox.

They are also looking at the potential of marijuana for pain management as part of the national fight against the opioid epidemic. Dr. Wilcox and her team are doing fantastic work!
