Cannabis for Encephalitis, Myelitis and Encephalomyelitis

Encephalitis, myelitis and encephalomyelitis are all inflammatory conditions that affect the brain and spinal cord. These conditions cause the brain to swell, which can lead to headache, stiff neck, sensitivity to light, mental confusion, brain & myelin sheath damage, and seizures. Cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD) can help protect the brain from further damage and inflammation, help develop new neurons (neurogenesis), and help prevent seizures.
