I have following the cannabis medication issue religiously.  It appears that the overwhelming majority of research reporting are repetitions of the same available information.  

I have done some medical writing myself.  My articles were solicited to one publisher.  That publisher then syndicated the articles to a number of health publications nationwide.  In such a situation (I am speaking of only my experience) it would appear that I had been writing for a lot more publishers.

As an example, one often sees mention of a family whose child had dozens of seizures per day, that dropped to zero with the use of the CBD oil.

The articles on research tend to not provide any study details like purity of the oil, dosing amount quantity, and methods of administration.

Do not get me wrong.  There is an enormous amount of anecdotal evidence in favor of cannabis usage.  I am, personally acquainted, with two users from epilepsy support groups.  These two recommend cannabis highly.

The cannabis does not have the same potency or side effects according to my doc-Dr David Moore of Ames IA. He was one of the strong supporters which convinced Iowa's legislature to pass the use of it in our state. Dr. Moore is a very strong Christan. I hope this helps a little. I see  nothing wrong with using something that if proven will work lesson seizures for children-Dr. Moore would not endorse its use if he knew. He also has children-Just pray about it and I'm sure you are.God will give you the answer-I am praying for you as well. Blessings to all-Richard-I think that device is wonderful. I read that and it's giving me more incentive to start walking more. I hope it motivates others as well!

My fellow Christians what are your views on medical marijuana? My Dr suggested I try it but being a christian and having 3 children under 13 it worries me.. But I've seen a lot of research on cannabis and its effects on epilepsy.. So I'm just reaching out to my christian peers..I appreciate all feedback
