How Does Lynx CBD Benefit Epilepsy Awareness?

When Lynx CBD was established, the core mission was to enable the growing number of CBD Oil users to directly contribute to furthering research of many disorders that affect the world.  Lynx CBD instituted a system whereby every sale triggers a $1 donation to a research organization of the customer’s choice.  Immediately, Epilepsy was among the top causes selected to receive donations.

Epilepsy is a widespread chronic condition that is characterized by seizures, the cause of which is unknown. Epilepsy is a blanket designation given to those who experience two or more inexplicable seizures, regardless of the seizure type. Although seizures are often stereotyped as being physical tremors, the reality is that they begin in the brain. Where in the brain the seizure originates can have a direct impact on the classification of seizure type, and therefore affects the physical nature of the seizure. With more than thirty known types of seizures, research is daunting.

At its root, this disorder is neurological, and it is only through scientific research that the world is likely to discover a  cure. Lynx CBD, as a company, hopes to bring awareness to the over 3 million people in the United States who have been diagnosed, nearly 500 thousand of which are children. Of course a cure is the desired end result, but in the meantime awareness is also crucial because according to the Epilepsy Foundation, “Public misunderstandings of epilepsy cause challenges that are often worse than the seizures.”

Epilepsy doesn’t just affect those who have been diagnosed with the disorder, and it isn’t just humans who suffer from this affliction. An alarming number of household pets are diagnosed each year. In fact, approximately 4% of dogs are suspected to be epileptic by age five.

It was these staggering and disturbing numbers that inspired the founders of Lynx CBD to give back. If you would like to learn more or donate on your own, we encourage you to do so by visiting: https://epilepsyfoundation.givenow.stratuslive.com/donate
