NEARLY ALL patients and general public (98%) would recommend medical marijuana in cases of severe epilepsy and feel there is enough safety (96%) and efficacy (95%) data

A SUPER MAJORITY of general physicians, basic researchers, nurses, and allied health professions sided more with patients, saying that there were sufficient safety (70%) and efficacy (71%) data, and 83% would advise using marijuana in severe cases.

In EpilespyU’s own survey that did not separate patients and practitioners, we found similar results as the patients and general public, and a super majority responders felt that CBD for Epilepsy was safe, and effective and would recommend the treatment in severe cases of epilepsy.
