Epilepsy is when nerve activity in the brain is disturbed. This causes seizures to occur. I always thought that seizures were honestly dangerous & painful. If you have ever seen someone have a seizure, it does look super painful, even though the seizures are fairly harmless. It is just traumatic for the people who see one happen. There really isn’t much pain associated with having one. Sporadically seizures occur with a burst of terror, and that can be traumatic for the child undergoing a seizure, but it’s usually not painful. If the seizure goes on for a long time, some scarring or damage to the brain can occur. Childhood epilepsy is real, even though there are quite a few cases where the kids outgrow them. But what if you are nervous about your child, or if they are not outgrowing the seizures? What about adults who have to handle epilepsy? There is help available for this condition in the form of medical marijuana. There are ingredients in medical marijuana called cannabinoids. The body produces its own cannabinoids to regulate pleasure, memory, thinking, concentration, etc. The cannabinoids found in medical marijuana can help seizure patients because of what they can control. The cannabinoids can control seizures, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), and even Dravet syndrome in kids. This type of medical marijuana can be quite the miracle worker. However, it is the ingredient that gets you high. Yes, there are possible side effects to using cannabinoids. But when you have an issue like epilepsy that is traumatic to you or to others, then it is sometimes necessary to take the good with the bad.
