Does CBD work?
Last year, the F.D.A. approved Epidiolex, a purified CBD extract, to treat rare seizure disorders in patients 2 years or older after three randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled clinical trials with 516 patients that showed the drug, taken along with other medications, helped to reduce seizures.

He is leading a clinical trial into administering CBD to children and teenagers with drug-resistant epilepsy.
