Cannabidiol(CBD) is helping people with epilepsy?

On June 25, 2018 the Food and Drug Administration(FDA) approved a drug called Epidiolex(Cannabinol) aka CBD to treat two rare and extremely severe forms of epilepsy. These two diseases are known as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. The famous Charlotte Figgy who was 5 years old and having 300 seizures a week was saved by cannabidiol, when no other pharmaceutical medicine was effective. The parents of Figgy tried everything the doctors advised them to do for years with no signs of hope. Some of the doctor prescribed medicine that nearly killed Figgy causing disruptions in her breathing patterns. After the discovery of CBD Figgy’s parents were finally able to meet their daughter for the first time. The child who was having 300 seizures a week, was now down to just one every seven days. After 2 years on a feeding tube she was now eating, talking, and walking on her own. She even had a strain named after called Charlottes Web. All of this took place while CBD was federally illegal and way before the FDA approved a CBD drug for epilepsy. Cannabidiol(CBD) is an absolute hero in many cases helping people with epilepsy.
