Epilepsy

The ability of CBD to improve the quality of life of individuals with epilepsy has been demonstrated in various experiments, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently approved Epidiolex, the first CBD-based drug able to significantly reduce seizures in two rare forms of epilepsy, i.e. Lennox-Gastaut and Dravet syndromes.

Analgesic properties and combating chronic pain

According to a number of studies, CBD has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and muscle-relaxant properties and can regulate the perception of pain.
