For veterinary information, see Epilepsy in animals. ...

Epilepsy is a common chronic neurological disorder characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures. These seizures are transient signs and/or symptoms of abnormal, excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain. About 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy, with almost 90% of these people being in developing countries. Epilepsy is more likely to occur in young children, or people over the age of 65 years, however it can occur at any time. Epilepsy is usually controlled, but not cured, with medication, although surgery may be considered in difficult cases. However, over 30% of people with epilepsy do not have seizure control even with the best available medications. Not all epilepsy syndromes are lifelong – some forms are confined to particular stages of childhood. Epilepsy should not be understood as a single disorder, but rather as syndromic with vastly divergent symptoms but all involving episodic abnormal electrical activity in the brain. >> Visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epilepsy

Epilepsy Info - Medical Marijuana Medical Marijuana - Epilepsy | Epilepsy is a recurrent disorder of cerebral function characterized by sudden, brief attacks of altered consciousness, motor activity, or sensory phenomena. Epilepsy includes a broad range of seizure disorders caused by microscopic brain lesions occurring during birth or during traumatic head injury. Epileptics often lead normal lives that are sporadically interrupted by violent seizures.

Epilepsy is usually treated with barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and other powerful anti-seizure medications that render the patient incapable of normal activity. Prescription anticonvulsants are no effective for 20-30% of epileptic patients. Many patients suffer intolerable, and sometimes fatal, complications from standard pharmaceutical medications. Some epileptics find that marijuana controls their seizures without causing the physical and psychological depression typical of pharmaceutical therapies. [1], [2], [3] Animal studies indicate that several cannabinoids not found in the synthetic THC pill have notable anticonvulsant properties. For example CBD, one of many medicinal compounds not available by prescription, has been shown to completely control partial seizure disorders. [4] Marijuana is the only source of CBD and other cannabinoids that can help control the agony of epilepsy attacks. ... Visit: http://www.cannabismd.net/epilepsy/

Epilepsy Info - Marijuana  and EPILEPSY Marijuana and EPILEPSY | Epilepsy is a persistent (chronic) condition of the brain. It involves unpredictable abnormal electrical discharges or misfirings of brain cells (neurons). This misfiring in the brain can cause episodes of bodily convulsions, loss of coordination, loss of consciousness or altered sensory states. These episodes are commonly called seizures. People with epilepsy have persistent and recurring seizures. One may be born with epilepsy, or may acquire it as a result of disease or injury. Epileptic seizure are often classified as partial seizures or generalized seizures. Partial seizures are more common and start in an isolated part of the brain. Partial seizures can be described as either simple or complex. When a simple partial seizure occurs, a person retains consciousness. The person with epilepsy may experience uncontrollable twitching or stiffening in a limb. There may be a tingling sensation, a change in consciousness or an odd smell without a source. The subjective sensations that may warn of an impending event are called an "aura".

Complex partial seizures cause an impairment of consciousness. During this type of seizure, a person may act confused, aimless, fidgety, emotional or disturbed. They are likely to have no memory of the event after it is over. A simple partial seizure may progress to a complex partial seizure and then become a generalized seizure as the abnormal electrical discharge spreads to the entire brain.

Generalized seizures involve abnormal discharges or misfirings in all regions of the brain and result in impairment of consciousness. Behavior during generalized seizures may range from a blank stare with little or no movement (petit mal or "absence" seizures) to dramatic bodily convulsions (grand mal seizures). During these convulsions, the patient may have difficulty breathing and turn blue. They may also bite their tongue and may lose control of urine or stool. When they regain consciousness, they do not remember the event and are very sleepy.

Epilepsy is conventionally treated with a class of drugs called anticonvulsants. Standard drugs in this class include carbamazepine (Tegretol), phenytion (Dilantin), primidone Mysoline, valproic acid (Depakote), clonazepam (Klonopin), ethosuximide (Zarontin) and phenobarbital. Newer drugs are coming on to the market but there is less experience using them. Doctors prescribe anticonvulsants or antiepileptic drugs according to the types of seizures patients experience and how well the patient can tolerate the drug. Many patients have a poor response to these drugs even when taken in combination.

In addition to problems with effectiveness, there can be serious side effects resulting from the use of anticonvulsants. While these side effects do not always occur, they can include nausea, headaches, loss of hair, swelling of gum tissue, impotence, depression, poor coordination (ataxia), liver failure, depressed blood counts and even psychosis.

Some people with grand mal seizures say they can prevent their seizures entirely by smoking marijuana. Others, who suffer complex partial seizures, report that marijuana also curbs their symptoms and prevents loss of consciousness. Marijuana is not considered useful for treating petit mal or absence seizures and may even worsen them.

Some patients find that marijuana works in conjunction with other drugs they are taking. Others find that marijuana works best for them when it is used without other drugs. Either way, these epileptic patients have made marijuana a necessary part of their medical treatment. ... Visit: http://www.mellowgold.com/medical/epilepsy.html

Epilepsy Info - Epilepsy is a neurological condition which affects approximately 1 in 100 people. Depending on how wide spread in the brain the neuroligical disturbance is (the focus), there are a range of possible seizures from lapses in consciousness (absence) or convulsions (Grand Mal) to grimacing or repetitive movements (temporal) to just odd sensations (auras). Epilepsy is as individual as the people who have it and everyone has their own patterns of seizures. There are sometimes triggers for seizures such as sleep loss, low blood sugar, stress or even boredom. Some common causes of epilpsy include head trauma, birth injury, hormonal imbalances, and viral attacks. Some kinds of epilepsy can be well controlled by anti-convulsant drugs, but a few forms do not react well to these. Anti-convulsant drugs have potentially serious side-effects, including bone softening, reduced production of red blood cells, swelling of the gums, and emotional disturbances. Other occasional effects include uncontrollable rapid eye movements, loss of motor co-ordination, coma and even death. In addition, these medications are far from ideal in that they only completely stop seizures in about 60% of patients. Cannabis has long been known to have anti-convulsant properties, and these have been investigated from the 19th century. Large amounts of anecdotal reports and 1-patient case studies indicate the assistance of cannabis in controlling seizures. Cannabis analogues have been shown to prevent seizures when given in combination with prescription drugs. Patients report that they can wean themselves off prescription drugs, and still not experience seizures if they have a regular supply of cannabis. >> Visit: http://www.ukcia.org/medical/epilepsy.php

Epilepsy Info - Cannabis and Seizures | Medical Marijuana and Epilepsy | Cannabis has been known to have anticonvulsant properties for over a century, and studies were done on the use of marijuana to alleviate seizures as early as the 19th century. While most data available today is anecdotal, those personal stories do point to cannabis as an asset in the fight to control seizures. Cannabis analogues have shown to prevent seizures when prescribed in combination with more traditional medications, and patients who have been through the combined drug therapy have stated they are able to wean themselves off the conventional medication and still not have seizures as long as they have a regular supply of cannabis. More recently, there has been some scientific interest in the use of cannabidiol, a cannabinoid drug, in epilepsy treatment. There is only a very little bit of data about this, but it shows that cannabidiol has almost none of the psychoactive side effects that whole cannabis (or its component element THC) tend to induce. ... severe form of epilepsy that causes seizures which severely limit her brain development. ...

Marijuana is effective in controlling seizures | Clinical experience and emerging research further indicate that marijuana can help control epileptic seizures.(45) Cannabidiol (CBD), one of the primary (and nonpsychoactive) cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant, appears to be of particular benefit, allowing patients who ingest it at certain times to avoid seizure activity.

Epilepsy Info - UK - Cannabis Research - Medical Uses - epilepsy/convulsions (org, info) “Influence of 22-day treatment on the anticonvulsant properties of cannabinoids.” by Karler R, Borys HK, Turkanis SA. | Abstract | Mice were given delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC) cannabidiol (CBD) or phenytoin (PHT) daily for 22 days. Drug activity was measured weekly in three different anticonvulsant tests: the maximal electroshock threshold, the 60-Hz-electroshock threshold and the 6-Hz-electroshock threshold. In order to correlate potential pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic changes resulting from repeated treatment, brain-drug concentrations were determined at each test time. The results from the delta-9-THC study indicate that, although tolerance developed in all three tests, there were no changes in the brain-drug concentration.

For CBD the pharmacodynamics were strikingly different: an increase in sensitivity to the drug developed in two of the tests, tolerance in only one test. Here again, there were no changes in brain-drug concentrations. The results of the PHT study differed from both the cannabinoids, for tolerance developed in one test, an increase in sensitivity in one test, and the activity was unchanged in the third test. Again, the brain concentrations remained constant throughout. The results demonstrate that both tolerance and increased sensitivity can develop concomitantly with anticonvulsant effects of the cannabinoids and PHT, and that these modifications in drug activity appear to result from cellular or functional rather than dispositional changes. ...

Epilepsy Info - Epilepsy & Marijuana (Cannabis Sativa / Indica) (org, info & forum) Cannabinoids have been used as a natural remedy for seizures for thousands of years, and there is a great deal of anecdotal evidence that marijuana (cannabis) may be helpful for some individuals with epilepsy. Unfortunately there has been relatively little clinical research done on the treatment of seizures with cannabis, or cannabis-based medications, and as a result, the use of marijuana as a treatment for epilepsy remains highly controversial.

Twenty-one percent of subjects had used marijuana in the past year with the majority of active users reporting beneficial effects on seizures. Twenty-four percent of all subjects believed marijuana was an effective therapy for epilepsy. Despite limited evidence of efficacy, many patients with epilepsy believe marijuana is an effective therapy for epilepsy and are actively using it. ... Effects of marijuana on epilepsy.

Epilepsy Info - Patients Find Comfort in Marijuana Epilepsy Patients Find Comfort in Marijuana. | Epilepsy is a condition in which certain brain cells become abnormally excitable and spontaneously discharge in an uncontrolled way, causing a seizure. In grand mal or generalized epilepsy, the abnormal cells are on both sides of the brain and the discharge produces convulsions (violent muscle spasms). In absence seizures, the generalized brain discharge causes a lapse of consciousness, but not convulsions. Partial seizures result from abnormal discharge in an isolated area of the brain and may occur with or without a change in consciousness.

Partial seizures with a change in consciousness, known as complex partial seizures, are caused by damage to the temporal or frontal lobes of the cerebral cortex. They were formerly known as psychomotor seizures because the symptoms also include motor activity (grimacing and repetitive mouth or hand movements are especially common). When overexcitation is confined to a very small area, the patient with epilepsy may have a strange sensation of déja vu, vertigo, fear, or an odd smell without a source. This experience, known as an aura, may or may not be followed by a full complex partial seizure. Epilepsy is treated mainly with anticonvulsant drugs, including carbamazepine (Tegretol), phenytoin (Dilantin), valproic acid (Depakote), phenobarbital, primidone (Mysoline), ethosuximide (Zarontin), and clonazepam (Klonopin). About 70% of patients get relief from one of these drugs, and another 10% are helped by some combination of them. Focal seizures and temporal lobe epilepsy, however, often respond poorly to these drugs. Furthermore, anticonvulsants have many potentially serious side effects, including bone softening, anemia, swelling of the gums, double vision, hair loss, headaches, nausea, decreased libido, impotence, depression, and psychosis. Overdoses or idiosyncratic reactions may lead to loss of motor coordination, coma, and even death. ... Visit: http://www.thcclinic.com/clinic/?page_id=184

Although the anticonvulsant properties of cannabis have been known since ancient times and were explored in the nineteenth century, this therapeutic use of the drug has been largely ignored in the past hundred years. Although the medical establishment is still showing little interest, more and more epilepsy sufferers are discovering the usefulness of cannabis.

Many patients report that inhaling a small amount of cannabis daily will reduce and, in some cases, eliminate their seizures. Using cannabis when a prodrome (i.e., pre-seizure aura) occurs has been shown to be effective in aborting the seizure. Extracts of Cannabis sativa have a long history in the treatment of various neurological diseases, including epilepsy. However, cannabinoids have been reported to exert both pro- and anti-convulsive activities (1). ... Visit: http://www.medicalmarijuanainformation.com/therapeuticuses/patientGroups.php?groupID=13

It is characterized by recurrent sudden attacks of altered consciousness, convulsions, or other motor activity. A seizure is the synchronized excitation of large groups of brain cells. There are anecdotal and individual case reports that marijuana controls seizures in epileptics (reviewed in a 1997 British Medical Association report), but there is no solid evidence. While there are no studies indicating that either marijuana or THC worsen seizures, there is no scientific basis to justify such studies."

Mar. 1999 - Institute of Medicine "Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Science Base" (988 KB) Donald Gross, MD, Assistant Professor of Neurology at the University of Alberta, et al., stated in their June 8, 2004 article, "Marijuana Use and Epilepsy; Prevalence in Patients of a Tertiary Care Epilepsy Center," published in Neurology:

Twenty-one percent of subjects had used marijuana in the past year with the majority of active users reporting beneficial effects on seizures. Twenty-four percent of all subjects believed marijuana was an effective therapy for epilepsy. Despite limited evidence of efficacy, many patients with epilepsy believe marijuana is an effective therapy for epilepsy and are actively using it. ...

Cunha JM, Carlini EA, Pereira AE, Ramos OL, Pimentel C, Gagliardi R, Sanvito WL, Lander N, Mechoulam R. In this controlled study, 4 of the 8 CBD subjects remained almost free of convulsive crises and 3 other patients demonstrated partial improvement.

In phase 1 of the study, 3 mg/kg daily of cannabidiol (CBD) was given for 30 days to 8 health human volunteers. Another 8 volunteers received the same number of identical capsules containing glucose as placebo in a double-blind setting. Neurological and physical examinations, blood and urine analysis, ECG and EEG were performed at weekly intervals. In phase 2 of the study, 15 patients suffering from secondary generalized epilepsy with temporal focus were randomly divided into two groups. Each patient received, in a double-blind procedure, 200-300 mg daily of CBD or placebo. The drugs were administered for along as 4 1/2 months.

Clinical and laboratory examinations, EEG and ECG were performed at 15- or 30-day intervals. Throughout the experiment the patients continued to take the antiepileptic drugs prescribed before the experiment, although these drugs no longer controlled the signs of the disease. All patients and volunteers tolerated CBD very well and no signs of toxicity or serious side effects were detected on examination. ... Visit: http://ripatients.org/medical/epilepsy/

It (legalization of medical marijuana) appears ... Marijuana | Possession and/or use of marijuana is illegal under federal law in the United States. Medical marijuana is legal in some states. It (legalization of medical marijuana) appears to be a political football in this country. In other countries, medical marijuana (and recreational marijuana) might be perfectly legal. Marijuana is a plant (like tobacco) that is smoked. It contains unique chemical compounds that affect brain function. Efficacy. According to Marijuana and Medicine: There are anecdotal and individual case reports that marijuana controls seizures in epileptics (reviewed in a 1997 British Medical Association report13), but there is no solid evidence. While there are no studies indicating that either marijuana or THC worsen seizures, there is no scientific basis to justify such studies.

In the only known case-controlled study that was designed to evaluate illicit drug use and the risk of first seizure, Ng and co-workers137 concluded that marijuana is a protective factor for first-time seizures in men but not women. Men who used marijuana reportedly had fewer first-time seizures than men who did not use marijuana. That report was based on a comparison of 308 patients who had been admitted to a hospital after their first seizure with a control group of 294 patients. The control group was made up of patients who had not had seizures and were admitted for emergency surgery, such as surgery for appendicitis, intestinal obstruction, or acute cholecystitis. Compared to men who did not use marijuana, the odds ratio of first seizure for men who had used marijuana within 90 days of hospital admission was 0.36 (95% confidence interval = 0.18—0.74). An odds ratio of less than one is consistent with the suggestion that marijuana users are less likely to have seizures. The results for women were not statistically significant. However, this was a weak study. It did not include measures of health status prior to hospital admissions for the patients' serious conditions, and differences in their health status might have influenced their drug use rather than--as suggested by the authors--that differences in their drug use influenced their health. ...

Epilepsy Info - Cannabis Treats Cancer and Epilepsy | Dr. Sircus > Dr. Sean McAllister and Pierre Desprez claim they’ve successfully used cannabidiol to fight animal genes involved in the spread of cancer. "We found this one compound had a specific effect on metastatic cancer cells, very aggressive tumor cells," McAllister says. Cannabidiol, the research appears to show, helps shut down receptors that inhibit cancerous cells from metastasizing. "We find when you treat with cannabidiol, you down regulate the expression of this protein, and that inhibits the disease process." Unlike THC, the ingredient in marijuana that makes you feel stoned, cannabidiol is a non-toxic compound of the plant that has no psychoactive qualities.

I already published that marijuana is the best medicine for 3-year-old Cash Hyde of Missoula, Montana. The boy’s parent’s defied doctor’s orders—and Montana law—to get their hands on the medicinal treatment their son needed after he was diagnosed with recurring brain tumors at 22 months old. “I’ve had law enforcement threatening to kick my door down, but I would have done anything to keep Cashy alive,” said Mike Hyde, who has long been a proponent of the drug, told ABCNews.com. ...

Hi davees, Both cannabidiol and baking soda are high on Dr. Sircus' protocol for cancer treatments. No contraindications to using both, though would separate when you take oral doses of each. You need to get the Treatment Essentials Book and start on the full protocol or get a consultation as we just cannot provide advice for each individual person here ...more information is needed from you and dosing is frequently a matter of some trial and error........sodium bicarbonate for example ....the dosing depends on your daily pH levels...you adjust according to that to get pH up to the level where it will affect cancer cells. >> Visit: http://drsircus.com/medicine/cancer/cannabis-treats-cancer-and-epilepsy

Epilepsy Info - Marijuana and epilepsy - Epilepsy: Support Marijuana and epilepsy - Epilepsy: Support | three6mafia -- Posted: Feb 18, 2009 | I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was 11 I am 17 now. I tried so many meds and none ever really worked. I had a very bad case of jumps every day and seizures every month or so. But last summer I started smoking marijuana and I had no episodes all summer and I barely ever took my meds because I was to busy/didn’t care enough to take them. Until I got a job and I had to cut back a lot on smoking weed. And when I cut back because I had a job I started to have episodes at work. I had 1 seizure and jumps so bad I had to go home several times so I was eventually fired.

What do you think about marijuana and epilepsy? And I want to hear from anyone who smokes and has epilepsy ... Thank You for joining us here in Epland.

Epilepsy Info - Epilepsy and marijuana Epilepsy and marijuana | epilepsy.com ... Hi all, I was wondering whether or not the effects of pot on the brain can intefere with the effects of the epilepsy medicine Tegretol 400mg per day. I know grapefruit and alcohol have adverse effects on the drug's treatments and can lead to uncontrollabe seizure possibilities in some cases. However, in the case of weed I do not not if it does have any interference or not. So if anyone could help me here I would appreciate it. Thanks.Chris

... my very honest answer will be this...I have juvenile myoclonic epilepsy I am 23 years old, I am on 1000mg keppra, 150mg of zonegran and 20mg of lexapro. I smoke weed almost every day, my mind is so hyperactive it helps me to relax i have never had a tonic clonic seizure because of smoking marijuana I have how ever had very short absence seizures while "high", whether I can blame the marijuana or not is debatable as I have them while I am not under the influence as well. but let me say this I have been hospitalized on the combonation of marijuana and alcohol. DO NOT DRINK! and be smart if you do decide to smoke, if you still have driving privelages, dont test your limits...

... hi i am 19 and i started having seizures when i was about 16. i take 600mg of dilantin every day but i think that smoking mj helps for sure. my seizures are stress indused so smoking really helps. evey since i started smoking i never feel like i am gonna have a seizure. i have never had one when i was high.

... I started having seizures when I was 17 and I am 45 now. I never really smoked much when I was in high school or college. I currently take 800mg tegretol and 300 mg dilantin. I don't have seizures too often but as I have gotten older I have noticed there are more and more triggers and the seizures have become more painful. They last about 15-20 seconds. One of the big triggers is anxiety or anxiousness. I get into political discussions with friends and it can get pretty heated, but respectful, and I have to back off and stop when it gets this way because I start to get auras. Earlier this summer when I went on vacation with these same friends, they brought some marijuana and I decided to smoke some. Well, the dicsussions turned to politics and religion and I was in the middle of it while I was stoned. After about 30 minutes of heated discussions the topic turned to something else and I sat back and realized I went through all of that and not one aura. I was amazed. If I had not smoked and argued at the level I had for that long I definetly would have had a seizure.

After reading many of the previous posts I have decided to try and smoke to see if it will releive me of the auras I get in certain situations. If I get the results I did earlier I will plan to make this a main part of my seizure treatment. I have always been a proponent of legalizing marijuana for medical reasons. I hope my state (Minnesota) will adopt that as others have.

Epilepsy Info - Seizures and medical marijuana Seizures and medical marijuana | Apr 27, 2008 ... my fiance has had seizures on and off for about 6-7 years now, beginning when she was 16. They began immediately when she began puberty and was diagnosed with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy. The first medicine that she was prescribed was depacote, one of the more common anti epilepsy drugs. Because the medication was not controlling tremors even though it was controlling seizures, the doctor boosted the dose up multiple times until it reached a toxic level and she had to be taken off of it. The next medication that was tried was lamictal, with devastating results, she became extremely angry and manic and began throwing things at one point, because she was psychotic and she had to drop out of school.

... Well the point of this is that there has been one miracle medication that has worked for her everytime she feels seizure brain activity and keeps her mood calm enough to not have seizures, and that medication is marijuana.

Epilepsy Info - ‘Marijuana Refugees’ Move to Colorado for Cannabis Oil to Treat Epilepsy - Tucson Progressive | When I first heard Democracy Now’s headline about “marijuana refugees” moving to Colorado, I, of course, thought of stoners who want to freely buy weed from a retail outlet, but the riveting story on Democracy Now focused on families that are leaving their homes in other states to get access to a particular cannabinoid oil that has been shown to be effective in controlling epileptic seizures. Like little Madeleine, who was featured on the show, had exhausted the available medical therapies and was facing brain surgery to remove half of her brain, when her mother heard about cannabis oil and decided to move to Colorado to obtain it. With cannabis oil, Madeleine went from suffering hundreds of seizures per day to being able to function as a normal child.

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, at least 115 “marijuana refugee families” from 43 states have left jobs, homes and family so they could obtain the cannabis oil to treat a variety of ailments. That’s just plain stupid. Not getting cannabis oil– but having to leave your home, your job, and all of your friends to move across the country to gain access to an herbal remedy that can help your child lead a normal life. >> Visit: tucson-progressive.com/2014/05/10/marijuana-refugees-move-to-colorado-for-cannabis-oil-to-treat-epilepsy/

Epilepsy Info - Head Of Epilepsy Foundation Wants Cannabis Oil Available | The chairman of the board of the Epilepsy Foundation is fighting for access to marijuana oil on a national level. Desperate families are moving to Colorado in search ... The chairman of the board of the Epilepsy Foundation is fighting for access to marijuana oil on a national level. Desperate families are moving to Colorado in search of relief for their children’s seizures. “Charlotte’s Web” is a strain of marijuana grown in Colorado that is named for Charlotte Figi. Charlotte and others with severe epilepsy have found relief from seizures by ingesting the plant’s oil. It is marijuana that is low in THC but rich in cannabidiol or CBD. “There is enough evidence to suggest we should really try and study this,” said father Warren Lammert. His daughter, Sylvie, had her first seizure at 9 months old. “She had an implanted medical device, she’s tried the ketogenic diet but we haven’t found anything that will control her seizures,” said Lammert. Sylvie is now 16 and despite numerous treatments still lives with daily seizures. “She’s delayed and she’s in a special school,” said Lammert. Lammert is chairman of the board of the Epilepsy Foundation and has enrolled Sylvie in a clinical trial of CBD at New York University. >> Visit: www.hempforfuture.com/2014/04/07/head-of-epilepsy-foundation-wants-cannabis-oil-available/

Epilepsy Info - Cannabis Oil For Kids With Epilepsy, Doctor's Orders - Karma | University of Utah Doctor’s have come to the conclusion that cannabis oil for kids with epilepsy is a viable treatment. “I would like to express my strong belief that [cannabidiol]-based oils should be available as soon as possible to Utah children with severe epilepsy. The substance is not psychoactive or hallucinogenic, it contains less THC than do other materials that can be legally purchased in Utah, and it has absolutely no abuse potential,” declared Francis Filloux, chief of the U.’s Division of Pediatric Neurology, in a letter shared Tuesday with Utah’s Controlled Substances Advisory Committee. The letter addressed to Utah’s Controlled Substance Advisory Committee was also signed by pediatric neurologist Helen Barkan and Lynne Kerr, the first Utah physicians to publicly endorse cannabis as a treatment for children with severe, intractable epilepsy. With marijuana reform sweeping the nation the federal government needs to re-evaluate the scheduling of marijuana as a Class I substance and accept the growing number of facts that support the integration of cannabis into our society. >> Visit: karmajello.com/mind-spirit/cannabis/cannabis-oil-kids-epilepsy.html

Epilepsy Info - Epilepsy and Medical Marijuana | Can Medical Marijuana Aid in Relieving Seizures? Published by Jan > The anticonvulsant properties of marijuana may be the oldest of its known medical benefits. Marijuana was used as a medicine for epilepsy by ancient societies in China, Africa, India, Greece and Rome. Written testimonies of its usefulness, such as the one by Dr. W.B. O'Shaughnessy appeared in Western scientific journals in the 19th century. Dr. O'Shaughnessy's classic account of the uses of marijuana in India was published by the Ohio Medical Society in 1860. Some people with grand mal seizures say they can prevent their seizures entirely by smoking marijuana. Others, who suffer complex partial seizures, report that marijuana also curbs their symptoms and prevents loss of consciousness.

Some patients find that marijuana works in conjunction with other drugs they are taking. Others find that marijuana works best for them when it is used without other drugs. Either way, these epileptic patients have made marijuana a necessary part of their medical treatment. Some epileptics find that marijuana controls their seizures without causing the physical and psychological depression typical of pharmaceutical therapies. Animal studies indicate that several cannabinoids not found in the synthetic THC pill have notable anticonvulsant properties. CBD, one of many medicinal compounds not available by prescription, has shown ability to control partial seizure disorders. Marijuana is the only source of CBD and other cannabinoids that can help control the agony of epileptic attacks.

Epilepsy Info - Brain Chemicals Suggest Marijuana's Effects, 
Natural Substances May Mirror Pot's Effects on the Brain WebMD > Brain & Nervous System Health Center > Epilepsy Health Center Epilepsy News >> Brain Chemicals Suggest Marijuana's Effects, Natural Substances May Mirror Pot's Effects on the Brain -- By Miranda Hitti for WebMD Health News Sept. 15, 2004 | Marijuana is well known for its widespread effects on the brain. The key to understanding its impact may come from the brain's own pharmacy. Brains make their own calming substances called cannabinoids, which are similar to marijuana's active ingredients. Cannabinoids are made in the brain's cortex, an area which processes sensory information and orchestrates movement, thinking, learning, and emotions. Scientists already knew that the cells in this area of the brain can make their own cannabinoids.

These cells (pyramidal) normally work to excite neighboring cells; using their homemade cannabinoids temporarily allows more information to be processed by lowering the brain's inhibition of excess information processing. By lulling other brain cells, cannabinoids temporarily leave the pyramid cells free to fire away. Now, researchers at Stanford University in California have found that other type of brain cells -- LTS cells -- can also make cannabinoids. LTS cells ordinarily keep pyramid cells in check. This process works to guard too much information being processed from pyramidal cells to neighboring cells within the brain region. But when LTS cells make their own cannabinoids, they tune themselves out from surrounding cells. As a result, the brain's pyramid cells are temporarily freed from inhibition. They then process excess information to other cells. The effects can last up to 35 minutes.

Marijuana's active ingredients may behave the same way, latching on to these cannabinoid receptor sites allowing information to be process in an altered way. "A loss of inhibition in pyramid cells could produce changes in perception, in motor function, and in everything the cerebral cortex does," researcher David Prince, MD, says in a news release. Studying cannabinoid receptors may one day lead to drugs for conditions such as epilepsy, says Prince, the Edward F. and Irene Thiele Pimley professor of neurology and neurosciences at Stanford University School of Medicine. During seizures pyramidal cells fire out of control, one reason may be that neighboring cells get shut down. Targeting and blocking cannabinoid receptors might quiet pyramidal cells activity. Prince and Stanford colleagues based their study on lab rats. Their report appears in the Sept. 16 issue of Nature. ...

Epilepsy Info - Epilepsy patients are smoking pot, by Helen Fields, U.S. News & World Report ASA : Press Room Home » Press Room » ASA in the News » Medical marijuana | Epilepsy patients are smoking pot, by Helen Fields, U.S. News & World Report - December 6th, 2004 | Even though there's not a lot of evidence that it helps, many patients with epilepsy use marijuana, hoping it will reduce their seizures. Researchers in Alberta, Canada, asked epilepsy patients if they were smoking pot. What the researchers wanted to know: How common is marijuana use among epilepsy patients? What they did: Patients seen at the University of Alberta Epilepsy Clinic were called and asked about their condition and whether they use medical marijuana.

What they found: Of 136 subjects, 48 (35 percent) had used marijuana in the past month. Nearly half had used it at some time in their lives, and four were determined to be dependent on the drug. People with frequent seizures or who'd had the disease longer were more likely to use marijuana frequently—which could mean that using marijuana makes seizures happen more often but could also mean that patients whose disease was worse were more likely to try alternative treatments. Not surprisingly, people who used other illicit drugs were also more likely to smoke marijuana.

What the study means to you: Many people with epilepsy seem to think marijuana helps. Animal studies have come up with conflicting results—in some, marijuana increases convulsions, while in others it has an anticonvulsant (somewhat more desirable) effect. In any case, if many patients are using marijuana, it seems worth studying more. Caveats: This is one clinic in Canada, so the findings probably don't apply to everyone with epilepsy, especially if they live in places with stricter marijuana laws.
