Hi Kerry, Good Morning
Thank you! I am also very glad about the progress I made since I started taking medical marijuana, giving me new hope in my treatment!
I would say that pure CBD has been giving better results than full-sprectrum medical marijuana (medical marijuana with CBD, THC and other components of the marijuana) so far. My seizures have become milder since I am using pure CBD, they usually do not stop my day anymore.
When I said that CBD leverages AEDs, I mean that the CBD increases the dosage of the AED you take. For example, let say I take 200 mg of Vimpat and start taking CBD. The dosage of Vimpat in my blood will be more than just 200 mg that I took. How much does CBD increase the dosage of an AED in your blood, I do not know. It certainly depends on the dosage you take of both medications. But I have felt that myself. Every time my first medical marijuana doctor increased the dosage of the CBD, Vimpat’s side-effects became stronger. She then waited some time, before reducing the Vimpat and increasing the medical marijuana dosage again. Vimpat withdrawal was done little by little, as I mentioned before.
Thank you for the explanation regarding the card. Here in Brazil recreational marijuana is not approved. You can only get medical marijuana through a doctor's prescription. Again, very strange that your son's doctor prescribes medical marijuana, not helping you with the dosing. For me it would be the same as prescribing Vimpat, but without giving any orientation regarding the daily dosage of this AED.
Again, I am very happy to help. If you wish, we could schedule a zoom conversation and talk more. Just send me a private message.
