Epilepsy, which is eligible for medical marijuana in Texas, is a neurological disorder in which abnormal brain activity causes seizures and disturbances in cognitive functions. Approximately 30 percent of people with epilepsy don’t respond well to conventional treatments, but cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant, has emerged as a promising alternative treatment option. 

Research indicates medical marijuana treatments may decrease the frequency of convulsive seizures in some patients living with intractable epilepsy, and numerous patients and caregivers have come forward across the country in recent years reporting positive responses to CBD.
