Two years on medical marijuana and not one seizure in that time.

Then again, I've never had one before either.

2. Ha! Yeah, I am a pediatric palliative care nurse. It's like other seizure meds

it helps some kids but not all. It's just a tool in the toolbox. Now insurance is covering Epidiolex which is FDA approved for seizures. Of course it's insanely expensive. I am glad they are making this med. But, of course the company has to be evil.

3. Nice humor, there.

But I have to tell you that the beneficial medical effects of CBD are getting more attention within the medical community. The "drugged-out" stigma of anything related to "pot" is waning. BTW, if you're ingesting medical marijuana to get a good buzz, you're on the wrong track. It's like expecting Advil to eliminate symptoms of constipation.

9. There are various types of medical MJ. Those with THC provide a buzz. It's actual MJ. nt

4. I Have Yet To Know

anyone personally that it has actually helped. Not saying it doesn't, just saying the people I've known who have tried it have not had any luck. We were hoping it would help my mother's arthritis, but no go. The people I have known who tried it were using it for pain. A friend of a friend swears it helped her Crohn's big time.

5. 2 puffs before bed and I'm sleeping much better.

CBD for 3 months now and notice a big difference. Less pain, longer sleep and have been able to increase my jogging to 4 to 5 miles with faster times. 70 years old and I donít feel a day over 65. No longer use to get high. Not even sure I like the buzz any more. Great results with the CBD.

6. I was diagnosed with essential tremor

And my beta blockers take 2 hours to work, marijuana works INSTANTLY for my shakes. It's really been a blessing in my life, especially when they get bad.

8. Interesting

my mother also has that, she's 89. I didn't even think to see if that may be reduced. Will have to suggest she try again for a different reason.
