  •  Having been a recreational user (6+ / 0-)

    I noted that I was able to reduced the pharmaceuticals that I take by about twenty percent, and still not experience seizure activity.

    •  Concentrated cannabinoid oils work far better (5+ / 0-)

      than recreational use. THC doesn't seem to have much value in treating seizure disorders but CBD and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids have been found to be very useful. Do you live in a MMJ State?

      •  I hear you on that (6+ / 0-)

        I may check them out.  I am fortunate that I have only ever needed to take one type of med.  I've heard Dilantin (phenytoin) described as the "aspirin of AED's".  

        I will look into the oils.  I can buy oils and vaporizers at the market.  I'm in WA, so it's like a flippin' candy store in the seattle area.

        •  My sister and brother are top medicinal cannabis (8+ / 0-)

          producers in Oregon. They both produce a high CBD concentration oil product that cancer patients use to shrink cancerous tumors. My 84 year old mother uses a high CBD strain of herbal cannabis to treat her chronic pain from fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. I'm not sure if they have clients with seizure disorders but I've seen the Dr Sanjay Gupta's recent specials which focused upon the benefits of CBD on seizures in small children.
