Epilepsy and Seizures
Central nervous system disorders affect about two million Americans and 30 million people worldwide. The Epilepsy Foundation reports that one in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime. Seizures can cause altered consciousness and convulsions. Many medical cannabis users report a reduction in frequency of seizures and severity of symptoms.
Medical cannabis has been used by adults to reduce seizure severity. Many parents of children with intractable pediatric epilepsy have reported an improvement in their children's symptoms following medical cannabis use.
