Here is some reading and background information concerning epilepsy and medical marijuana. Please note some of these may not be the latest information but are included to offer a wide range of sources and opinions, they do not constitute medical advice, and in almost every case more research is needed before there is certainty.
Epilepsy is a condition of the brain and central nervous system characterized by frequent seizures. It is inherited genetically or occurs as a result of stroke or other brain injuries. A seizure occurs when there is a sudden change in the electrical functioning of the brain. Medical cannabis can help those suffering from epilepsy and other seizure disorders by helping reduce seizure activity.
