CBD Pharmaceutical Product Received FDA Approval
Over the past few months, a CBD drug called Epidiolex has been looking to receive approval from the FDA and they recently got it, allowing the drug to be used as a seizure treatment. Specifically, the drug is now allowed to be used to treat seizures associated with a medical condition called tuberous sclerosis, a rare genetic disease. Before this, the drug had been used to treat two other conditions: Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. Now that the FDA approved the drug to be used more widely, hopefully, it can provide help to many patients who suffer from seizures. This is an important first step in making CBD more commonly used as a prescription medication for a variety of conditions.
The scientific community is coming out with even more evidence that CBD is an effective natural remedy to many mental illnesses. Soon patients will be less reliant on prescription medications and use homeopathic remedies (like CBD) more.
