Epilepsy is a neurological disorder categorized by unpredictable seizures, with a wide range of types and control varying between people. Along with seizures one might experience many other symptoms such as:
- Confused memory
- Loss of bowel/bladder control
- Body stiffness
- Fearfulness or anger
- Sudden bouts of chewing or blinking
Benefits: Cannabidiol was effective in reducing frequency as well as severity of seizures in patients suffering with epilepsy. High levels of CBD have shown to drastically reduce seizures and some people even became seizure free. Patients struggling with treatment resistance epilepsy are encouraged to try CBD since many patients have found treatments to be very effective.
Treatment: Treatment of epilepsy with cannabis is done through CBD, the non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. Avoid strains containing THC, which may cause anxiety and impairment. Vaporizing or mixing oils into food each day will reduce the likelihood of seizures, as well as side effects associated with seizures.
Recommended method of intake: Oils, vaping, edibles.
