The Canadian Epilepsy Alliance are looking to hear from those with personal experience in the management of seizures with cannabis. With research in the area only just in its embryonic stages, lived experience is of great interest to all; i.e. what's worked, what hasn't; who's interested in learning more, etc.

 

By completing this short survey on marijuana use and information, whether you have used it for seizure control or not, you will help us better understand what the community needs on this developing topic.

 

We're asking that you please complete the survey by November 22nd. Results will be posted, shortly thereafter. To complete the survey, please click here: Epilepsy & Marijuana - Cannabis Usage Survey

Hi! My name is Rebekah. I am a twenty year old paramedic student who has epilepsy.

I cannot wait to help you understand that living with epilepsy does not have to be dreadful, and that the summer can still be one of the most fun times of the year.
