I should preface this post by letting people know that CBD (Cannabidiol) has been found to benefit people with neurological conditions, but there is still much research to be done. CBD may not work for everyone, but I believe it worth a shot. CBD is non-toxic and has little to no side-effects even in high doses, which makes it an appealing medication indeed.
Here is the exact wording from US Patent #6,630,507, held by The Department of Health and Human Services:
“No signs of toxicity or serious side effects have been observed following chronic administration of cannabidiol to healthy volunteers (Cunha et al., Pharmacology 21:175-185, 1980), even in large acute doses of 700 mg/day (Consroe et al., Pharmacol. Biochem. Behav. 40:701-708, 1991)” -Found at organiccosmos.com/safety-an...
6 months ago, I was having 3 seizures a day, dealing with anxiety attacks, and pain from past surgeries. I began using CBD in suppository and pill form, a small dosage at first, working my way up every few days. There is not a standardized dosage for CBD as of yet, as CBD works differently on each individual, so while some people need large amounts others may not. The rule of thumb is always low dose, go slow.
After a few weeks of tinkering with the CBD and throwing a small amount of THC into the mix, which I use a vaporizer to administer, all my seizure activity stopped, I had less anxiety and little pain. It has felt like a miracle.
I felt the need to post about this on here as it was a game changer for me. I am healthier than I have been in many years.
CBD is not legal in many places yet, so please look into the laws for your area before using this medication. But feel free to bring it up with your doctor and ask whether or not he/she would be willing to sign you a prescription for it. There is quite a lot of information on the web about cannabis, not all of it good information, so be careful of your sources. MedicalJane.com is an excellent resource.
The photos I've posted are from a few years back when I was on my highest dosages of pharmacutical medications, which caused me to lose my hair and gain almost double my body weight in half a year. I am finally off every one of those and have hair and a healthy weight.
Cannabis has given me a life again, a better life. Please feel free to contact me as I would be happy to answer any questions I can, or to direct you to places that can answer what I can't. I'm still learning too!
