List of the Most Popular Cannabis Strains for Epilepsy
Epilepsy is the wide-spread disease of the central nervous system in which brain activity becomes abnormal. That often leads to seizures, unusual behavior, sensations, and sometimes loss of awareness. Recently, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved that CBD is helpful for the treatment of seizures associated with the disease. Yet, not all the weed strains can be used for epilepsy treatment. The high level of CBD is the first factor to consider.
The cannabidiol boosts relaxation and relieves pain without altering consciousness. Another key factor that makes epilepsy strains so effective is the low level of THC.
Being one of the most popular cannabinoids, it leads to a wide range of “stoney” side effects that won’t benefit patients with epilepsy. The presence of terpenes is desirable. Linalool, for example, has anti-seizure effects that help to cope with the disease. The balance between Indica and Sativa also matters. Indica relaxes the muscles while Sativa is good for mental stimulation.
The most common epilepsy strains are Charlotte’s Web, ACDC, Ringo’s Gift, and Harlequin. All of them do have a balanced combo of the factors described above. For you we have compiled a listing of the best strains for epilepsy. We also have a listing of strains for Parkinson’s and tinnitus.
