Hemp Oil

Hemp Oil

Has anyone ever tried Hemp Oil? My family has been pushing me for months to try, but I've been a bit hesitant. Is it worth the try? Has it worked for anyone? Does anyone have an opinion on this subject? I would like to hear them all.

Just like AED meds or any type of meds for that fact. People react differently to to MMJ or CBD , depending on their body chemistry. Some people act very well to it others may not.

I use it, mainly for my side effect symptoms though. Because I've been an mmj user since before I got epilepsy, I can tell that it's not really controlling my seizures because I use it and my seizures are still uncontrolled. Ha-ha kinda common sense. Either way, it helps me tremendously with other issues that I have been dealing with for a long time. I do know that some ppl respond extremely well with CBD oils and tinctures.

Hi Shane. Thru a lot of research and blog sites I've read 90-95% of people had positive response for all types of medical marijauna . Are your spells 100% controlled? If your struggling to control them you would have a better chance using hemp oil or what ever type your state law allow you to use. It may not help everyone the same way , but you may have a better chance of cotroling your seizures better than using medication. I myself am planning to switch over . I definitely can't control my spells 100%. I've also been on many different Meds and we still haven't found the right combo to control my spells.
