Hemp and Seizures

Does Hemp and CBD help with Seizures (Fits) in Pets and People?

The response does tend to be somewhat variable with some patients responding extremely well but others not so great a response.

Seizures are a serious condition and you should always consult your veterinary surgeon and have her refer you to an experienced holistic veterinarian
