The Role of Cannabis in The Treatment of Epilepsy is Growing
The number of seizures epilepsy sufferers experience is dramatically reduced when they use cannabis on a daily basis, according to a UK based university research team. This adds credence to the mountain of anecdotal evidence that points to the fact that cannabis has an important part to play in the treatment of epilepsy in the 21st century. So, what strains are the most effective at reducing the number of seizures you may experience?
Possibly one of the most well-known strains for reducing the frequency of seizures in epilepsy sufferers is Charlotte’s Web. It is important that you build up some form of tolerance to THC before using this strain. It is possible to use this strain both during the day, and at night.
You may be wondering how the strain gets its name? Well, the little trichomes that make up the strain resemble a spider’s web!
Next up, we would recommend Grape Kush. This is a strain that has a low concentration of CBD – just 2%. It is possible to use this strain at night, and we would recommend not using it during the day, as it may make you quite lethargic. There are lots of positive comments about the excellent flavour of the strain, which will leave you going back for more. Another benefit of Grape Kush is that it improves the mood of users, which is perfect for those who suffer from bouts of depression as a result of their epilepsy.
Key Lime Pie
The third strain we would recommend is Key Lime Pie. This is becoming one of the most popular Indica-dominant hybrids, as it has plenty anecdotal evidence to suggest that it is excellent for reducing the number of seizures in patients. The minty taste of the strain is quite unique, which other strains find difficult to match in terms of tastiness. From the reviews of the strain, nearly everyone has found that the number of seizures they experience when they use Key Lime Pie is reduced. It is also great for people who suffer from chronic pain, and this is the preferred strain to be used by beginners.
