Can CBD Help Prevent Seizures?

Updated: Apr 7



“CBD is an effective treatment for seizures and epilepsy,” says Dr. Gardner. “It has been shown in studies to be similarly effective to other anti-epileptic medications that we commonly use,” she says. “However, it may not work for every type of seizure or all epilepsy patients. For some patients it leads to full seizure control, other patients have a reduction in seizure frequency and others have no improvement at all.”

For patients with epilepsy, CBD is shown to control their seizures and prevent breakthrough seizures from happening. However, CBD does not treat or cure the underlying cause of the epilepsy, and responses vary from person to person, Dr. Gardner adds.

“Data showed that there was approximately 40% reduction in the median seizure count compared to baseline, and over 50% of patients saw at least a 50% reduction in seizures,” says Dr. Patel.
