Yes. My daughter is one of only a handful of people with a medical card for it here in the state of Utah. She was on the CBD oil for quite awhile, but the issue is that dosage is all trial and error at this point. She stopped taking it in May, as she was implanted with a VNS, but I highly recommend this as an additional therapy. She suffered NO SIDE EFFECTS and felt much better physically and mentally. There is no 'high' with CBD.

I have had epilepsy for 51 years. Since I was 1. I want to try the Cbd but I am afraid to stop my meds. I am so over taking pharmaceutical’s and the cost is insane. I can’t even get my own place I have to rent a room.

I'm a fortune one, or so I read, since I've only had epilepsy for a few years. I'm also lucky in that I have good sources for cannibis and related products and I don't do well with pharmacuticals. I've been treating my condition with CBD oils and THC smoke for a couple of years. For me, It works!
I'm 65 years old and the epilepsy is being held at bay, and, except for the aches and pains of an aging body, I'm nicely functional. I highly recommend trying the natural method. Try it first. What can you lose?

Ok I am new at this but I take the low thc oil. I was on opiods for pain management. The key is to make sure you wean yourself off with the help of your dr or pharmacist. Don’t just stop taking your meds
