Seizures are the primary symptom concern associated with epilepsy. Although there are twenty different anti-seizure medications, 30% of patients continue to have seizures. Cannabis has been shown to help manage seizures by stimulating CB1 and CB2 receptors.
CBD has been shown to be an anti-convulsant and has been suggested as a medication to treat epilepsy. However, the exact mechanism as to how it works is unknown.
