Scientists believe that the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), play an important role in reducing the occurrence of seizures.
Cannabinoids regulate neuron excitability, reducing the frequency of, and even eliminating, seizures. According to the study, “Cannabidiol in patients with seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase 3 trial”, those taking CBD had a 43.9% reduction in seizure occurrence. On the other hand, patients from ...
Cannabis is composed of many different cannabinoids that primarily include:
1- the psychoactive cannabinoid delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC
2- the non-psychoactive cannabidiol or CBD.
Cannabinoids can decrease the brain’s nerve cell excitability, reducing the frequency of seizures. Recent evidence suggests that the cannabinoids delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and cannabidiol (CBD) found in the cannabis plant can regulate neuronal excitability even during the occurrence of seizures.
According to the study, “Cannabinoids and Epilepsy,” THC and CBD ...

CBD and THC have the same chemical formula, but the atoms are arranged differently. This difference in atom position takes away the effect of feeling “high,” from CBD. Hence, CBD has little or no effect on cognition compared to THC.
Smoking cannabis might have some negative side effects. That is why doctors recommend CBD oil rather than smoking cannabis for medical purposes. These harmful effects might include developing:
