Epilepsy is a condition when nerve activities in the brain are disturbed and it causes seizures to occur. I used to think that seizures were really painful and dangerous. If you have ever seen someone have a seizure, it does look super painful and scary. Actually, though, the seizures are fairly harmless. It is just traumatic for the people who observe the person undergoing a seizure. There isn’t much pain that occurs when you undergo a seizure, even though sometimes they occur along with a quick burst of terror. That can definitely be traumatic for the child who’s undergoing it, but it’s not really painful for them. However, if the seizure goes on for a long time, scarring or destruction to the brain can happen. Childhood epilepsy is a real issue, but there are quite a few cases where the kids outgrow them. But what if you are scared that your child isn’t outgrowing them? And what about the adults who have to handle epilepsy? There is help available for this condition in the form of medical marijuana. See, there’s an ingredient in medical marijuana called cannabinoids – the body actually produces its own cannabinoids, too – used for regulating pleasure, memory, thinking, concentration, etc. The cannabinoids in medical marijuana can help seizure patients because how they regulate brain activity. The cannabinoids can control seizures, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), and in addition, Dravet syndrome. This portion of medical marijuana can really work miracles. And yes, it’s the ingredient that gets you high. Yes, there are side effects when using cannabinoids, but when you have an issue that is traumatic for you or for others, then it is sometimes necessary to take the good along with the bad.
