ok im new to all of this and im desperately trying to find out if its ok to smoke weed if i have seizures and take meds. for them. i have smoked weed before and the first time i did i had one.
but after that i havent, im kinda worried and i need help...
Actually, marijuana has the capability of reducing seizures. I have had seizures for 11 yrs now and on meds for this disease. I also require pain managment for other injuries. This Dr found weed in my system and told me that he could not tell me to but was not going to tell me not to because it has the possibility to slow down the seizures not induce them. Hope this helps.
