There is a huge list of conditions treatable with medical marijuana and epilepsy is one of them. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the molecule in marijuana that acts to stop seizures. In some cases, CBD oil has been able to stop them completely. Many parents with epileptic children seek access to this medicine as the standard treatments don’t seem to work and CBD appears to be a sort of magic bullet. The problem is of course in getting access to it. In Canada, medical marijuana producers are only allowed selling dried plant material. This means that if you want an oil, you have to set up a lab in your house and make it yourself which is time consuming and expensive. Some people even move to Colorado, where pot is legal, to get easy access to the medicine their kids need.
