You may have read recent anecdotes about the success some seizure sufferers have had with using certain strains of cannabis. An English University has researched this in detail and produced astonishing findings. It found conclusive proof that if a sufferer used cannabis daily, there was a notable reduction in seizures experienced. This has lead to the Epilepsy sufferers, especially in the UK where the study took place, to stand up and take notice and ask why they can’t access the treatment legally in the UK. So, which strains actually help? Here are the strains that were identified.
Charlotte’s Web may have an innocent name, but it certainly packs a punch! It is probably the most common strain used for counteracting seizures. The strain can be used by young adolescents, thanks in part to the high CBD concentration. This means there is very little, if any, psychoactive effect on the body. The strain’s name comes from the appearance of the trichomes, which look much like a spider’s web. We’d recommend using this strain both during the day, and at night time.
Grape Kush is characterized by a very low CBD concentration of approximately 2%. You may notice with this strain that there is a “couch lock” feel when you first use it. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you only use this strain just before bed, as you don’t want to feel lethargic and tired during the day because of Grape Kush. The taste of the strain is something which sets it back from the competition. Most users comment positively on the sweet candy taste. Yum! The number of seizures that people experienced was found to be reduced when they made use of Grape Kush, so this is a great strain to consider.

Key Lime Pie
Our third strain that we recommend is the much-loved Key Lime Pie. You will quickly notice with this Indica-dominant strain that the number of seizures you experience are reduced. It is a particular favorite of many Epilepsy sufferers. There are a lot of positive reviews of this strain, so it is worth giving it a try.
It could be a good idea to visit your local dispensary, who may be able to offer more information on what strain to choose. You can locate the nearest dispensary to you by using the dispensaries near me open now tool.
