I am not sure if I posted this in the right section so I apologize in advance
I have a friend whose teenager has been battling epilepsy.
He currently has 5 seizures daily
He is taking several meds and isn’t finding any relief from them
We live up in Canada so cannabis is legal everywhere and most cities have legal dispensaries
He started using a high CBD tincture with low THC and started seeing a small improvement
he was taking in about 200mg of CBD per day
but these government tinctures even the strongest ones only have about 700mg CBD per 30ml bottle and run about $70
So even at such a low dose that bottle only lasts about 2 days making it too expensive to keep up with even this low dose let alone experiment with much higher doses
from what I studied he isn’t taking a high enough dose to make a huge difference
I have read from studies that most need 40-60mg of CBD per kg of weight
at his weight, I think he would need 2200-2500mg per day
the issue is that up in Canada getting CBD distillate or Isolate is hard to find even though high THC cannabis is legal and everywhere
I know this sounds stupid but that is the current state of things in Canada
CBD on the black market in Canada is hit and miss because many give fake CBD to make a buck
With most on this forum selling CBD isolate for $300 -$450 per kg, high dose protocols are much more affordable for those that need large doses especially when compared to the little options that Canadians have
Does anyone here have any recommendations on different dosing protocols for CBD and even THC for epilepsy?
Any experiences using CBD distillate over CBD Isolate?
Any tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated
This is why many Canadians are trying to access bulk CBD products to help with crippling diseases like epilepsy and are locked in a quagmire
thank you in advance for any help
