Does cannabis help with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures?


Great question. PNES is distinguished by the lack of epileptiform EEG changes, traumatic head injury, or vascular malformation generally associated with traditional seizure activity. PNES is usually diagnosed in those with another underlying psychiatric condition. THC can actually exacerbate the symptoms associated with schizophrenia and certain forms of dementia. If you choose to work with a provider to acquire medical marijuana, please consider a CBD only product and only use it under the direct supervision of a provider with experience in treating PNES.
