To understand medicinal cannabis and its side effects, we need to understand epilepsy.

Epilepsy is a condition in which electrical signals in the brain cause stunning and sudden changes in perception, mood, movement, perception, vision and hearing; the experience is that the patient is seeing or hearing things that are not there. This condition can be very debilitating to the patient and can interfere with communication, work, and is not curable yet.

Over the years, medical cannabis has been used to treat a number of conditions, such as inflammation, muscle spasms, glaucoma, muscle-related diseases, sleep disorders, depression, nausea, arthritis, and muscle-trauma. In addition, it has been used to treat a number of diseases and conditions that affect the nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Epilepsy is caused by a disorder in the nervous system, and affects just one in every 1001 people. It is caused by a variety of factors, including a Epilepsy Foundation Newsletter published in July 2008, and medical advances that are made every day. According to a recent survey, in the United States adult population at least 66,000 people live with epilepsy, and there are up to seven million Americans that have some form of the disorder.

There are two types of epilepsy; primary and secondary. Primary epilepsy is when seizures are IONgative, that is negative, and secondary epilepsy is when seizures are constructive, that is, they produce some sort of benefit. For many people in the United States, the kinds of seizures are the primary kind.

Secondary epilepsy is not the result of any one type of illness or condition. It can be the result of certain medications, environmental conditions, and a number of other factors. So when a person has epilepsy that has a negative result, that is, it stops short of death, a second type of epilepsy can take over.

The most common form is “complex partial seizure. This is the most common form of epilepsy. People with this form of epilepsy deal with episodes that are robot-like, and read like a true account of an accident.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, drugs have been made that help people with epilepsy, some of those drugs have serious side effects. In the last couple years, it has been noted that a large number of people who used to have severe epilepsy are now largely seizure free.

Because of this, medical scientists have been researching what can be done to help kernels of epilepsy to be maintained in a healthy part of the brain. They have identified a stem cell which can be injected, and have grown. Pluripotent stem cells are the ones those injecting the therapeutic stem cells. They are now finding it is the most promising and safest therapeutic tool to help maintain epilepsy in a healthy part of the brain.

In addition it has been noted that for those that have seizures unnecessarily, anti-epileptic medication can cause unwanted side effects. For many of the anti-epileptic drugs a large number of people taking them will develop resistance to those drugs by the time they are being used to combat the full impact of the seizures they are designed to help.
