Intractable Seizures and Medical Marijuana

Doctors treating epileptic patients in three medical marijuana states—California, Washington and Maine—have reported their findings in a peer-reviewed article that underscores the complex challenges and unique therapeutic potential of cannabis oil concentrates. In this study some degree of seizure reduction was noted in 86 percent of cases. Ten percent (26 patients) experienced complete seizure remission. Pennsylvania patients can now obtain Medical Marijuana.

Research and Medical Marijuana

Ancient Chinese and Persian medical texts suggest that cannabis is useful for treating seizures. Evidence from laboratory studies, anecdotal reports, and small clinical studies from a number of years ago suggest that cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound of cannabis, could potentially be helpful in controlling seizures.

Research has been limited, but a new study of cannabidiol has given some credence to these claims. Children with a severe form of epilepsy had 39 percent fewer seizures per month after taking CBD. Three people stopped having seizures altogether.
