For people with epilepsy, seizures are draining, disruptive, and can lead to medical complications. While antiepileptic drugs are available, some patients may experience significant side effects with these drugs, prompting them to find a more natural treatment such as medical marijuana.
Medical marijuana can help individuals with epilepsy avoid seizures and live more comfortably. Let’s learn more about how cannabis can be used to make epilepsy more manageable for qualifying patients.
