Medical Cannabis and Epilepsy

By Dr. François Halle, Cannabinoid Specialist

As the fourth most common neurological disorder, epilepsy is characterized by unpredictable seizures whose degree and control vary from person to person. In recent years, medical cannabis has shown to be effective in the reduction of the frequency and intensity of these seizures. Below, I have compiled a brief overview of research findings that support the use of medical cannabis in the treatment of symptoms associated with epilepsy.

Medical Cannabis and Epilepsy

It is very well documented that through its modulating effect on the release and the decreased re-uptake of Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA) inhibition, the principal non psycho-active component of cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD) has demonstrated the ability to reduce or even eliminate intractable seizures this decreasing the risk of status epilepticus (Blair, Deshpande & DeLorenzo, 2015), (Rosenberg, Tsien, Whalley & Devinsky, 2015), (Szaflarski & Bebin, 2014) and (Devinsky, et al., 2014). Current trends in the medical use of cannabinoids and seizure treatment have shown that high CBD cannabis based oils are effective in the treatment of severe pediatric epilepsy disorders like Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndromes (Porter & Jacobson, 2013). It was also reported in a qualitative study that CBD significantly improves sleep (53%), alertness (71%), and mood (63%) in children under 13 years old suffering with seizure disorders (Hussain, et al., 2015). The cannabinoid CBN and its derivatives have shown to significantly prolonging inter-seizure periods latency in mice (Usami, et al., 1998). It was previously reported that the use of CBN and CBC containing products could assist in the treatment of epilepsy and other seizure disorders (Yoshida, et al., 1995).

    Currently it appears like BlogEngine is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    Found a very good source of additional income and it involves filling out surveys online. From $5 to $20 per one survey, where one survey takes on average 15 minutes, so even filling like 4 x $5 an hour gives you whooping $20/hour. Unlimited amount of surveys. All you need is basically some spare time and your honest answers. If you don’t wanna be paid with cash, you can exchange your earnings for Amazon or Google Play gift cards. I’ve started using it around a week ago and I already made $300 for like 10 hours of work. Really easy to navigate and well built site with a lot of opportunities.

    The heart of your writing whilst appearing agreeable originally, did not really work well with me after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while. I still have got a problem with your leaps in logic and one would do nicely to help fill in all those breaks. In the event that you can accomplish that, I would surely be amazed.
