I am A 42 yr old male and just found out i have Epilepsy, is Marijuana ok for treatment ?

Is there a Doctor in Ohio that would prescribe this for me ????

Clinical experience and emerging research further indicate that marijuana can help control epileptic seizures.(45) Cannabidiol (CBD), one of the primary (and nonpsychoactive) cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant, appears to be of particular benefit, allowing patients who ingest it at certain times to avoid seizure activity. Some epileptics who cannot tolerate other antiseizure medications have been able to use marijuana to successfully control their seizures, without experiencing debilitating side effects.(46) (See complete APHA amicus brief for footnotes.)

I found this article

    If you haven’t started using marijuana for epileptic seizures, I would hope that you don’t. Just because it helps some people doesn’t mean it will work for others. And pretty soon you’ll be using it not just for medicinal purposes or recreational use, but you’ll get so hooked and everyday you’ll need more and more. Go with the prescribed medication.
