My mother was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was a teenager.
She had to take a series of different medications to treat her symptoms.
It was difficult for her to maintain a driver’s license as well because of the possibility of getting seizure while behind the wheel of a vehicle. However, she learned a few years later that instead of epilepsy, she instead was hypoglycemic. She would have a sugar reaction and respond in a manner that mimicked some kinds of seizures. So once she had a proper diagnosis for hypoglycemia, she was taken off the epilepsy medicine and the statement was removed from her driver’s license. However, there are plenty of people who suffer from epilepsy every day. For instance, my niece is only 9 years old and she suffers from epilepsy. My brother decided to put her on CBD oil after hearing about all the people who use cannabis effectively for epilepsy. I agree with him that we should probably avoid giving my niece THC products if she can possibly avoid it. It’s not that either of us have a bias against THC products for children if they need them, it’s just that THC gives more side effects than CBD. With THC the kid could end up tired all the time simply from taking the medication they need to prevent their seizures. On the contrary, CBD oil is often attributed with stimulating effects and is good at helping focus the mind. I can’t think of a better supplement to give a child than CBD, even if they didn’t have something like epilepsy.
