This has been an ongoing and evolving topic here at CWE (see link below). Though there haven't been extensive studies here in the U.S., I think the general understanding is that the varieties with the lowest amounts of THC (the major psychoactive ingredient) are the ones that are most effective in treating epilepsy.

Yes, this has been an ongoing topic on CWE, so it isn't news anymore. Why do folks keep bringing it up over and over? Click on the "search" tab above if you want to search for more conversations that have gone on.

For some children with Dravet Syndrome, it IS the miracle drug. That's my :two cents:. Plus cannabis is legal here in Colorado.

this is the first time I happen to see this as I have never had a reason to go near it personally for my epilepsy condition. When I was a teenager the smell sent me into a CP so it was not of good benefit.

I realize everyone is different and in my case surgery was best chosen for managing and maintaining my situation. :twocents:

Never smoked weed and probably wouldn't use it because my meds work, but I support legalization 100% for medical use and 99.99% for recreation.

I wonder if the cannabis CBD extract shown in Suebear's video is the same as the hemp derived CBD oil that is for sale on Amazon. Stronger perhaps?
