Today's Weed News for June 26th 2018 #EPIDIOLEX

in health •  5 months ago

For today's weed news we go to the FDA.

The United States Food and Drug Administration has just approved the first ever cannabis-based drug!

This drug is called Epidiolex and is approved to treat two different kinds of epilepsy and people two years old and up.

The main active ingredient in it is CBD or cannabidiol, the most popular non-psychoactive cannabinoid.

"This is an important medical advance... because of the adequate and well-controlled clinical studies that supported this approval, prescribers can have confidence in the drugs uniform strength and consistent delivery" said FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb.

Many in the medical field are praising this decision and saying that this could be the beginning of a brand new category of antiepileptic drugs.

The drug is supposed to become available just a few months from now in the fall of 2018.

The FDA's decision to approve Epidiolex comes as the federal government ponders reclassification and possibly even decriminalization or legalization of cannabis.

Justin Gover, the CEO of GW Pharmaceuticals ( the company who will be producing the drug), commented on the FDA's decision calling the approval of Epidiolex "a validation of the science of cannabinoid based medication".

If you ask me, I feel like the fact that this drug will soon be available in all states could really become the backbone of a science-backed argument for finally rescheduling cannabis once and for all.

It now officially has medical use motherfuckers!

And that's what's up.

It certainly makes it harder for the federal government to claim that cannabis has no medical value.


schedule 1 = "no medicinal value" so I guess as of now cannabis no longer fits into that

I think FDA Commissioner Dr Scott Gottlieb is correct, what do you think @kiefpreston???? Like comments your
