Can Cannabis Treat Epileptic Seizures?

Recommended Posts

good on scientific america for barely placing any significant news of this at all.

 

mostly its 'ahh it could be placebo and ahh it could be magic'.

 

flower this who-who news. cannabis works for epilepsy, decreasing or even eliminating seizures for a lot of people. its a making whoopee fact.

The problem with the article is that they used 99% CBD extract with no terpenes or other cannabinoids.  WHole plant extract widens the therapuetic dose.  CBD only has a very narrow window to work in.  It's the other cannabinoids and terpenes that enhance the effect and make it useful over a much larger dosage range.

I agree. This was/is the danger of propping up one element of cannabis above the others. I could see it coming a mile away as CBD was hawked as the most important component for medical use. It always was obvious BS to me. Dangerous BS that would come back to haunt us. CBD works with the team, not all on it's own.
