It is well known that delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC), the main psychoactive component of marijuana, has anticonvulsant properties. This has been demonstrated in laboratory animals for a variety of experimentally induced seizure paradigms. In particular, both delta-8-THC and delta-9-THC have been found to significantly reduce the incidence of seizures on the first and second days of administration. Table 1 summarizes the reported effects of delta-9-THC in this regard.
Therefore, it is clear that delta-9-THC can be an effective treatment for seizures in certain cases. However, it is important to note that more research is needed to fully understand the potential benefits and risks associated with its use. Additionally, it is important to consult with a medical professional before using any form of cannabis for medical purposes.
