Epilepsy and Seizures

Epilepsy, a condition in which people have recurrent seizures, affects three million people. While it can affect people of all ages, it is most commonly diagnosed in children. It is a central nervous system condition in which the nerve cell activity in the brain is disturbed. More than half of the cases have no known cause.

Unfortunately, in more than 30 percent of the cases, even multiple medications aren’t effective in controlling the seizures. In addition, the side effects are often so debilitating that the patient can’t continue using the medications.

Adult onset seizure disorder is usually due to head trauma. Medications are often ineffective and also cause serious side effects.

It has now been clinically proven that the use of Hemp Extract is remarkably effective in alleviating the symptoms of epilepsy in infants, children and adults. It also helps to significantly reduce the frequency and severity of seizures.

A study conducted by the American Epilepsy Society found Hemp Extract effective in treating epilepsy in children and adults. Hemp Extract was also able to reduce frequency and severity of seizures.

Published May 2017 in the New England Journal of Medicine, the research focuses on Hemp Extract as a treatment for Dravet syndrome, a complex and hard to treat form of childhood epilepsy.

Considering how difficult epilepsy is to treat, especially in infants, this is an exciting breakthrough. The use of Hemp Extract has proven to be not only safe and effective but also affordable.
