Greetings, in this article I am going to discuss, Hemp Oil for Epilepsy. Hemp Oil, if it made correctly and sourced from the right company is the same as CBD Oil for Epilepsy. But be careful because there is also ‘Hemp Seed Oil’ which is different again, as it doesn’t have any of the essential cannabinoids that can have the potential of making the Hemp Oil so powerful and effective for some people.*
Not only that there is also differences between CBD Isolates and Full Spectrum Hemp Oil and the different carrier oils that make the Full Spectrum Oil effective as well. Below is a video by Dr Dani Gordon MD on CBD, Cannabis and Epilepsy to treat Epilepsy and Seizures.
Epilepsy And Medications.
Epilepsy is a disorder that hasn’t been researched and looked into enough as scientists still don’t really know all the full details behind the condition and there is no actual cure. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder where your brain activity will get disrupted for a period causing seizures or unusual behavior or loss of awareness.
Because of the various types of epilepsy there have been a vast range of pharmaceutical medications that have been created to control it. Everyone is different with their bodies reacting to the medications in different ways. Therefore, side effects are always created from these medications.
It’s not just a matter of is the medication working to control the Epilepsy? But is the patient able to handle the side effects of the medications as well? This is because Medications are always created to suppress or mask the problem.
The only way to find out if a medication will work is for your Neurologist to trial them on you to test it and see what happens. I know all this because I have Epilepsy myself. Pharmaceutical medication stopped working, a range of medication was trialed and nothing worked for 5 years.
I suffered multiple seizures, in clusters every 3 weeks. Then I discovered Hemp Oil and No more Seizures! Again that’s just me. Everyone is different that’s why your doctor has to trial different medications to see what will work, until you find one that is suited to you that you are happy with.
Does Hemp Oil for Epilepsy Work?
We are at a time when Hemp Oil for Seizures, where CBD has the potential for all sorts for diseases and disorders but is still only at the trial stages. CBD Isolate has been created for trialing with Doctors so that pharmaceutical companies can have more control over the CBD and trialing as well.
Many Doctors are still not convinced and don’t like Hemp and won’t have anything to do with Hemp or CBD. Thinking it’s not safe, because there is not enough so called documented proof in trials and evidence for them yet. Or because of their rules and regulations they have to stick to strict prescription guidelines and are simply not allowed to.
There is also conditioning of a lot people being ‘Scared of the Pointy Green Leaf’ where years of torment by the government, pharmaceutical and legal industries have made the Hemp plant look like a bad drug with no value.
However, if you look at the evidence, the CBD industry is booming. The industry is going to be huge by 2024, this means there must be something working. Why is everybody liking it? Why is so much of it being sold? There are good reasons behind this.
People tend to love CBD entourage Oil especially. Having ALL the cannabinoinds and other ingredients working in harmony to make it more effective and even better.
A lot of Epileptics have known of the potential benefits of CBD Oil for Epilepsy for years, I know this because I was part of an Epilepsy association where we would meet once a month to discuss things. This used to be in a time when my medication was working I didn’t have any hemp oil and it was apparently illegal. People simply sourced it from other places.
CBD Isolate Vs Full Spectrum?
There is a big difference between Isolate and Full Spectrum. You can get a range of various strengths these days as well. Plus you also need to look into the carrier oil as well. That’s why sourcing a good product is very important. The market is booming and vastly unregulated so you have to be careful and do your research on selecting a good reputable company.
I recently wrote an article on this ‘What is the best CBD Oil to Buy’ Going into the details of:
- Choosing a Good Reputable Company
- How the Oil is Processed – Cold pressed, Supercritical Carbon Dioxide,
- What is in the Oil – The carrier oil, cannabinoids, etc
- Certificates & Members of Associations
- What Is The Price Range – How much should you Pay?
- Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Processing – Video
- What is the best CBD Oil to Buy
With over 100 cannabinoids in the Hemp plant, if it is processed correctly with the right carrier oils a lot of the Cannabinoids, Terpenes and Flavoinoids will be retained to help the oil work synergistically in harmony together to boost the Full Spectrum to make it work more efficiently and more powerfully for you.
That’s why I ‘Love CBD Entourage Oil’ an article on the power of the Entourage effect.
Why Does Hemp Oil Have Potential?
Hemp has been know to be miraculous with potential benefits, that are so powerful that everyone needs to know about it. This is because of the human endocannabinoid system. Our bodies largest neurotransmitter system important in maintaining health. A system that allows the cells to communicate with each other to help you regulate cell function for homeostasis.
In other words, the endocannabinoid system helps us to restore balance. There are 2 known primary receptors CB1 & CB2 which are located in various cell types and when activated they stimulate cells to carry out hundreds or thousands of different responses, like a complete signaling system has been set up.
The endocannabinoid system has four main functions including:
- Stress relief,
- Immune response
- Regulating the body’s overall state of balance which involve things like digestion, reproduction, appetite and pain.
What Else Could Hemp Oil Do?
- Multiple Sclerosis,
- Sleep disorders,
- Eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions.
- Even Stress with better control of cortisol,
- Plus so much more!
Although your cells being able to communicate better and more effectively with each other, restoring homeostasis. This is not for everyone, there have been some good testimonials. Some people may not see results.
Everyone is different, Hemp oil CBD is still in it’s testing stage and you need to do your research and look into what you are buying. For some researched companies click here:
