When CBD Isn't Enough to Treat Epilepsy

by Gloria Philips Expert Blogger
During the night you will probably find Chelsea Leyland, a 31-year-old British actress and celebrity DJ, juggling beats in a flashy Miami party while rocking a Simone Rocha dress that enhances her honey-hued hair and brown eyes. During the day she shifts into activist mode, traveling the nation, giving interviews, talking at conferences and filming a documentary - all around the complex and controversial subject of medical marijuana. Leyland wants individuals to understand how she has overcome a crippling neurological illness. She actually is epileptic, and she’s been seizure-free for quite some time without the need for any pharmaceuticals. Her only medicine is cannabis.

Leyland remembers your day her epilepsy rudely announced itself. She was 15, relaxing in the backseat from the family car. These were driving within the London suburbs by way of a grove of trees, as well as the dappled sunlight flickered with the leaves, triggering strange sensations in her own head. “My brain felt funny,” she says. “It was enjoy it continued another frequency.”

With time, this “funny” feeling in her own brain become instances of sudden jerking movements in her own limbs, often each morning while Leyland will be eating breakfast, and her cereal bowl or tea cup would drop from her hand. (Doctors think of it as “flying saucer epilepsy,” when sufferers inadvertently fling dishes around throughout a seizure.) Leyland was eventually identified as having juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, a type that typically begins in adolescence. She was prescribed anti-epileptic medications whose negative effects included anxiety, irritability, rage and depression.
