Cannabidiol and hemp derived CBD are likely the most well-tolerated forms of treatment for seizures of all kinds.
Seizures, by definition, are any uncontrolled electrical activity in the brain, which may produce a physical convulsion, minor physical signs, thought disturbances, or a combination of symptoms. They may be caused by epilepsy, tumors, head injury or may be idiopathic (caused by an unknown reason). Approximately half of all seizures fall into this last category and occur in children. Seizures can be debilitating and often interfere with the ability to lead a full and happy life.
Formal research and patient testimonial indicate that the use of Cannabidiol in the reduction of seizures is a viable alternative to other medications. Although no medication is without side effects, the side effects found while using hemp derived CBD in any form is minimal in comparison to other medically approved seizure medications.
Currently, there are a number of government approved clinical trials looking at the efficacy of Cannabidiol as treatment for multiple types of seizures.
