Can CBD Oil Really Help With Seizures?

CBD Oil For Seizures

There is a need for more research on how medical cannabis can affect seizures. In the future natural holistic supplements like CBD may be the best alternative for drug-resistant epilepsy and uncontrolled seizures. With the access to information people who have been living with epilepsy can choose the option of using CBD to control seizures.

Ever since December 2022, the U.S. President Biden signed the Medical Marijuana and Cannabidiol Research Expansion Act into law. This broke down barriers against limitations in research for cannabis and cannabidiol. Today, physicians in America are able to discuss the benefits and risks of cannabis as a medical treatment. In the past medical providers were reluctant in prescribing cannabis to their patients due to fear of violation of controlled substances, but things are opening up now. This is good news for patients looking for an alternative treatment to control seizures. CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD has numerous therapeutic properties with very little side effects.

Can CBD Help Control Seizures?

CBD has been able to prevent some type of seizure in humans and lab animals such as Lennox-Gastaut, Dravet syndrome, or tuberous sclerosis complex.


Research have shown that CBD can enhance the effectiveness of antiepileptic medication.

Research suggest that CBD can reduce seizure drastically in people that suffer CDKL5 deficiency disorder, Aicardi syndrome, Doose syndrome, and Dup15q syndrome.

How can CBD prevent seizures?

The fact is that there isn't enough research and data to support the answer, but we know that our body contains an endocannabinoid system which is made of neurotransmitters and receptors along the body. CBD responses to the endocannabinoid system which is responsible for immunity, appetite, pain and sleep.

At the moment FDA has approved Epidiolex, a CBD-based medication prescribed by physician to treat seizures that are cause by Lennox-Gastaut, Dravet syndrome, and tuberous sclerosis complex.

If you are suffering from seizure disorder then you should see a neurologist as soon as possible. You should discuss with your doctor if you would like to use CBD as an alternative treatment or to be used along with your medication.
