If this is a subject that is not to be discussed here please excuse me. My question is, does anyone with seizures take CBD hemp oil to help symptoms of any other illness? I & others have horrific pain at times & wonder if CBD oil would cause seizures to be worse? If anyone has any experience with this do you have any suggestions of what kind to use etc.? I know nothing about it but I don't want to make seizures worse. Thanks.

Hi Emee,
I've been using CBD oil for at least 6 yrs. if not longer for my seizures and it has reduced them to the lowest in my life even after
having brain surgery. I found out I was drug resistant and my Epileptologist told me to start using the CBD oil. I buy it online at
CBD plus but I make sure I don't get it with thc or it will mess me up. I buy the mouth spray in the mint flavor and squirt it twice in
the morning and twice in the afternoon. I use about 10 mg. a day.
I have found that the CBD also helps my back a lot I have 2 herinated discs and it has stopped a lot of the pain. I will tell you that
it makes you sleepy within just a few seconds so be sure you aren't doing anything that could cause a problem when you are tired.
I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You,

Sue

I use CBD oil and sometimes I'm wondering how much it helps. Sometimes it seems to if I feel slightly foggy and I hold it under my tongue for a minute. I notice that it is wonderful for anxiety or stress.

If I am way brain foggy, having extreme virtigo, or a limb is twitching/moving on it's own - I find chewing the bud straight from the plant is the most effective. Awful tasting, but starts working for me super fast - generally within 5 minutes. I'd rather take that over a benzo any day.

I have never had worsening symptoms from full-spectrum CBD oil or from the plant itself.

I use Lazarus Naturals (they also have a program that if you have state assistance and can provide proof, they will discount their product). Although, one time we did get a bottle and thought, "This isn't helping at all. It didn't taste as potent as it normally does, didn't smell the same." after a while, I wondered if it was not full spectrum or a pirated version from the company itself? We will never know. We didn't suspect anything was wrong with that bottle until we got another one and realized there was a HUGE difference. So, perhaps take this with caution. I have heard Charlotte's Web is ultimately the best of the best, but it is expensive.

Generally, you'd want a high CBD and low THC strain. The Lazarus Naturals contains 50mg of CBD per ml.

If you look for a plant strain to buy, be sure you're getting that high CBD/low THC.

I use CBD as well. I use a balm or the tincture on my feet and calves pretty much everyday. My seizures nearly always start with my feet and calves cramping first, then going into a full body tonic-clonic. My neurologist says, since it's a brain thing, putting a balm on my feet and calves won't prevent seizures. Maybe not, but it soothes the cramps and makes me feel like I'm doing something.

Some full spectrum CBDs are sold with with lidocaine as an added ingredient. I find it cheaper to buy Aspercreme and use it along with a FS CBD. Also, I used the low THC CBDs for a bit and got away from them. It seems I'm very sensitive to even low-dose THC.. I don't like feeling high--not like the old days in my teens and twenties.

Finally, the most effective single seizure preventive I've found was to stop drinking alcohol. Unlike pot, I really like the taste of a good IPA or a well-mixed Martini (and the subsequent high). Alas.
