Studies have found that Cannabis Oil THCA & CBD two of the primary Cannabinoids have anticonvulsant properties for people with Epilepsy and seizures.

New findings by specialists shed new light on the discussion surrounding Medical Cannabis & Cannabis Oil as an effective treatment for epilepsy. In recent years Cannabidiol (CBD) has gained support because it lacks the high that THC is known for. There is also ample evidence from animal studies and anecdotal reports that CBD has anti-seizure properties on its own.

Epileptic seizures are caused by abnormal electrical discharges or misfiring among brain cells. This misfiring results in convulsions of the body sometimes severely altered senses and often the loss of consciousness. Some patients suffer literally hundreds of seizures per day. Epilepsy itself may be caused by viruses, head trauma or even a hormonal imbalance. Often however the cause of the Epilepsy is idiopathic meaning it is simply unknown. Anecdotal evidence of the power of Medical Cannabis & Medical Cannabis Oil to treat seizure disorders and epilepsy have been available for literally thousands of years. Studies conducted since the mid 1970s have found that THCA and CBD two of the primary Cannabinoids in Medical Cannabis deliver anticonvulsant and other valuable effects to epilepsy patients.

THCA is a strong anti-inflammatory and pain killer and has been shown to reduce the amyloid plaques in the brain that cause Alzheimer's. THCA is also a bronchodilator, anti-spasmodic, muscle relaxant a powerful neuro protectant and antioxidant. Although the entire science thereof had not been well understood due to the historical limitations on Cannabis research it has now been well established that Cannabis is effective for relieving muscle spasms and accompanying pain without the serious side effects associated with conventional drugs. Theory states that CBD and THCA two of the active chemical compounds in Cannabis “turn on” nerve receptors that affect motor functioning. This makes it a plausible treatment for many conditions involving muscular spasms particularly epilepsy. In fact it has 20 times the anti-inflammatory power of aspirin and twice that of hydrocortisone which is another reason for its growing popularity with the treating of epilepsy.
