Can cannabis oil help with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy and thalassemia?

"My wife suffers from both Temporal Lobe Epilepsy and thalassemia, would cannabis oil help with these two conditions?"


CBD is well documented to be effective in epilepsy. Epidiolex is a prescription drug for resistant epilepsy is an example of its effectiveness without THC. Most epilepsy in my experience has been controlled with relatively low doses of CBD on the order of 0.5mg per lb. Other specialists insist on using THC but I rarely have to resort to that with a high quality CBD product. Thalassemia and cannabinoids has only one reference that discusses that cannabinoids that block TRPV1 receptors could prevent the common complication of osteoporosis. I think that more in depth research would find a very positive effect. Therefore, CBD would not make T worse but it would protect against complications because CBD does block TRPV1.
