CBD Approved by FDA for Epilepsy



Cannabidiol is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants. It does not produce intoxication; marijuana's "high" is caused by the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol.

On June 25th the FDA announced it had approved a cannabis-based drug for the use in epilepsy.


Our blog from June 4th was on the topic of CBD oils and the benefits and uses for CBD oils.


Could this be the first step in the FDA taking a closer look at marijuana for medical benefits? 


One of the biggest hurdles that supports of medical marijuana face is the lack of medical studies that the FDA has allowed take place.


The issue come from the Federal Government classifying marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug, with this classification it makes it difficult if not impossible for clinic trials to be run.


This new approval could be the first step in seeing some significant changes in how we look at medical marijuana and hopefully the beginning of clinical trials to prove what many of us already know, medical marijuana and CBD’s has many health benefits.
