Epilepsy

Symptoms

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder categorized by unpredictable seizures of a wide range of types and levels of control varying between people. Along with seizures, one might experience many other symptoms such as: convulsions, confusion and memory loss, fainting or blackouts, loss of bowel/bladder control, body stiffness and unresponsiveness, fearfulness or anger, sudden bouts of chewing or blinking

Benefits

Cannabidiol (CBD) is effective in reducing frequency as well as severity of seizures in patients suffering with epilepsy. High levels of CBD have shown to drastically reduce seizures and some people even became seizure-free. Patients struggling with treatment-resistant epilepsy are encouraged to try CBD since many patients have found CBD to be very effective. When choosing to treat with cannabis flower, it is important that the strain is a pure CBD strain such as Charlotte’s Web, Candida, or Grape Goddess. These strains not only contain CBD but also have linalool, a terpene which is has anticonvulsant effects. 

Treatment

CBD is the non-psychoactive ingredient within cannabis, and is used for the treatment and control of seizures and other neuromotor disorders. It is imperative to avoid strains that contain THC as THC may cause anxiety and impairment. CBD can be administered through tinctures, oils, edibles, vaporizing, and smoking. Inhalation provides almost immediate effects, which can be administered as needed for swift symptom relief. Daily oral administration of CBD will help decrease seizure severity as well as frequency, and CBD oil can also be used sublingually as an emergency treatment during a seizure. 

Method of intake

We recommend using Mukwa Wellbeing tincture, CBD vaporizers, CBD oil, CBD edibles.
