epilepsy marijuanaMarijuana has been proven to be tremendously effective when it comes to treating epilepsy.

There are a lot of uses for medical marijuana, all of which I support. But I especially support cannabis for the use of epilepsy because of how many personal success stories I’ve personally witnessed.

The largest study ever conducted on marijuana and epilepsy recently released results, and as expected, the results were favorable to using medical marijuana to treat epilepsy. Per The Joint Blog:

The largest study ever conducted on cannabis and epilepsy was presented this week at theAmerican Epilepsy Society’sannual meeting in Philadelphia.

For the study, 313 children from 16 different epilepsy centers around the United States were put on a regimen of the cannabis compound cannabidiol. After a three-month period, 261 of these children had the amount of convulsive seizures (also called grand mal or tonic-clonic seizures) they experience reduced by an average of nearly half, while experiencing little to no side effects.

In addition, some patients experienced an 100% reduction in seizures; “In the subsequent periods, which are very encouraging, 9 percent of all patients and 13 percent of those with Dravet Syndrome epilepsy were seizure-free”, says Dr. Orrin Devinsky, a neurologist at theNew York University Langone Medical Center, noting that; “Many have never been seizure-free before”.
