Epilepsy is where nerve activity in the brain is disturbed and this causes seizures to occur. Now I always thought that seizures were very dangerous and painful. If you have ever seen someone have one, it does look super painful. Actually the seizures are fairly harmless. It is just more traumatic for the people who sees the person undergo one. There really is not that much pain associated with one. Sometimes seizures occur with a sudden burst of terror, that can be traumatic for the child undergoing one, but not painful. If the seizure goes on a long time, scarring or damage to the brain can occur though. Childhood epilepsy is real and there are quite a few cases where the kids outgrow them. But what if you are worried about your child or if they are not outgrowing them? What about adults who handle epilepsy? There is help for this condition in the form of medical marijuana. There is an ingredient in medical marijuana that is called cannabinoids. The body actually produces its own cannabinoids. This is regulating pleasure, memory, thinking, concentration, etc. The cannabinoids in medical marijuana can help seizure patients because of what they can control. The cannabinoids can control seizures, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) and Dravet syndrome in kids. This portion of medical marijuana can really be quite the miracle worker. Yes, it is the ingredient that gets you high. Yes, there are side effects possibly to using cannabinoids. But when you have an issue that is traumatic to you or others, then it is necessary to take the good with the bad.
