Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a central nervous system disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behaviour, sensations, and sometimes loss of awareness, according to Mayo Clinic. Around 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy, making it one of the most common neurological diseases globally. Scientists have, in recent years, discovered that cannabis-based drugs, or CBD, which does not produce the “high” feeling associated with marijuana, can be effective in reducing the frequency and severity of seizures.
