At Nature’s Way Medicine, we have many patients with epilepsy but few with seizures, despite those patients frequently discontinuing their prior seizure medications. Often these patients come to us as young adults brought in by their mothers.
“I know… I never thought it would come to this, but I’ve seen the results first-hand so I agreed to bring her here.”
THC vs CBD for Seizures
There have been scientific studies demonstrating the efficacy of CBD, cannabidiol, a cannabinoid present in marijuana, on seizures in children with a form of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome. This has sparked a lot of interest in CBD and many websites claim that CBD is the most important ingredient in marijuana for seizure patients. We at Nature’s Way Medicine have found the opposite to be true.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the active ingredient for most of marijuana’s therapeutic properties. In our adult patients with epilepsy, we have found the most success using high doses of THC daily to control seizures optimally. Therefore, we recommend our seizure patients, especially the adult population, to use marijuana daily in order to stay free of seizures. In this way, we have recovered patient driving privileges and restored a quality of life to many patients like no other healthcare institution has been able.
