Marijuana Effects On Epilepsy
A Beginners Guide for Patients 2022 Edition

Medical Marijuana and its Use with Epilepsy

Medical marijuana has shown potential in helping to manage epilepsy. It has shown more promise in patients who have not responded well to traditional treatment options.

The two main parts called cannabinoids in marijuana, THC and CBD. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), have different effects on the body. THC has a psychoactive effect, while CBD is non-psychoactive and has been the focus of most epilepsy research.

Several studies have found that CBD may have potential benefits for epilepsy patients including:

1. Reduced seizure frequency: CBD has been shown to help some types of epilepsy by reducing the chances of having seizures.

2. Improved quality of life: Studies show that using CBD from cannabis helped patients feel better emotionally, sleep better, and enjoy life more.

3. Additional treatment option:For patients who have not found relief with traditional seizure medications, medical marijuana can help in treating epilepsy.

Medical marijuana might not work the same way for everyone with epilepsy. Some patients may experience benefits, while others may not notice any improvement or may even have an increase in seizure frequency. More research is still needed to fully understand the long term effects of medical marijuana.

As with any treatment, it is essential to consult with a healthcare professional before using medical marijuana for epilepsy. They can help determine if it is an appropriate option and guide patients on the best way to use medical cannabis.
