Marijuana for Seizures
It has been proven that cannabis is useful in the control of epileptic seizures, especially diseases such as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome in children and adults and Dravet syndrome in children, extremely difficult to control. The main chemical compound of cannabis used to treat seizures is Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, which is known to prevent or reduce the total number of seizures and reduce the time required for individual seizures. The smoking of cannabis and the ingestion of CBD have been used by countless parents and caretakers to help their loved ones. Similar positive results have been found in treating dogs with ingested CBD products.
