A seizure is a sudden, uncontrolled electrical disturbance in the brain. It causes changes in behavior, movements or feelings, and in levels of consciousness. Having two or more seizures within a 24 hour period by an identifiable cause is generally considered to be epilepsy.
A protocol is a 90-day therapy designed to improve symptoms and ultimately eradicate the underlying diagnosis.

This is why consults, although maybe inconvenient, are recommended.

There are two main types of seizures that range in symptoms and severity. It depends on where in the brain they begin and how far they spread. Most seizures last from 30 seconds to two minutes. If a seizure is lasting longer than 5 minutes, it is a medical emergency and 911 should be called immediately.
Epilepsy is one of the few diseases that cannabis is legally defined as a treatment option. CBD trials reporting over the last few years have transitioned their position from ‘anecdotal and promising’ to ‘proven to be effective,’ and here’s why.
Cannabinoids have numerous and highly complex pharmacological properties. In experiments, THC displays complex psychoactive effects, variable anticonvulsant effects, and analgesic, cognitive, muscle relaxant, anti-inflammatory, appetite stimulant, and antiemetic activity. CBD on the other hand has zero psychoactive effects but possesses anticonvulsant, anti-anxiety, antiemetic, immune-modulation, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotectant, and anti-tumorigenic properties. 
In the case of anti-seizure properties, cannabinoids effectively slow the intense neurological impulses that start in the brain through the anticonvulsant properties of CBD and THC.
