CBD like these guys say definitely reduce seizures and helped improve my cognition. Everyone tried Epidiolex yet?

Pros: a great time πŸ˜† cons: a little too good of a time
In all seriousness though, I find the side effects generally more enjoyable than seizure medication, but harder to tolerate when doing important work like school or work that requires the brain. In those situations I find marijuana more disruptive. I also personally find that a strong sativa can actually trigger seizures for more. A heavy indica seems to calm down my muscle jerks and seizures. For me Marijuana is better than no intervention, but not the best by any means
