In a 2020 study, researchers found that patients taking a commercial CBD product had a 70 percent increase in seizures, whereas the group taking prescription CBD had a 39 percent reduction. A reason for this may be that the commercial CBD products had higher levels of THC, which can be a trigger for seizures.
Can CBD affect seizure medications?
The most common side effects of CBD included sleepiness, diarrhea, fatigue, and decreased appetite. CBD also interacts with some other seizure medicines. Careful monitoring of CBD is needed.
Does CBD lower seizure threshold?
Both THC and CBD oils were tested, with both shown to possess strong anticonvulsant properties in mice.
