Tree2fly, what type of seizures do you experience? What treatments have been effective for you (or not)?
Hi, im new here and saw this topic and had to share my own experience. Im 40 yrs old, been having seizures for 20 yrs now. Had a VNS implant in 2009, with continued seizures I had a right temperolobectomy in 2011 because of an abnormality. I havent had a gran mal since my brain surgery and have been taking the medical marijuana for a year now. I do 18 drops under my tongue 3x a day and use the vape when i have a seizure or having auras. It has not helped at all!!!! Im actually having more. Complex partials and absence seizures now. I had started out doing only 5 drops under my tongue but because that wasnt helping my med. marijuana doc has increased slowly to 18 drops. I just knew before it was approved in my state that this was going to be my "cure all" very disappointed it hasnt helped me at all. I also take Onfi and Briviact, been having seizures daily!!!
I would say don’t be too disappointed as there are many different strains of MMJ with different terpenes that give you different results. It’s a bit trial and error. My son has had good luck with vapes 2 parts CBD to 1 part THC. talk to a good bud tender about your best options…they are the most familiar with different strains and what works for which conditions. Best of luck.
