What we treat


Epilepsy is a neurological disease which produces seizures because of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Seizures are classed as short disturbances of muscle function, consciousness, behaviours, and emotions. Seizures are classed into two categories; one is when the electrical activity takes places across the brain (generalised) or when the electrical activity is concentrated in one part of the brain (focal.) Seizures produce additional symptoms in the body which can include stiffness, muscle jerking, amnesia and losing awareness of surroundings.

Medical cannabis has been proven to reduce the number of seizures and severity of those that take place. This works through the cannabinoids natural antiepileptic properties which work in partnership with the body’s endocannabinoids.
