Answers (1)

Official Answer by Drugs.com 23 Aug 2018
Epidiolex (cannabidiol) is the first FDA-approved drug that contains a purified drug substance derived from marijuana known as cannabidiol (CBD). Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not cause intoxication or a 'high'. The FDA approved Epidiolex in June 2018 as an oral solution for patients two years and older to treat seizures linked with two rare and severe forms of epilepsy that start in childhood, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome.
