Some cannabinoid-based drugs have been approved by national drug administrations. For example, Epidiolex (a CBD product) has been approved by the US FDA for the treatment of rare pediatric seizure disorders (Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, Dravet syndrome and tuberous sclerosis complex). Other than seizure disorders, what are the therapeutic indications for cannabinoid-based medicines that have been approved by a national drug administration?
Besides epilepsy, cannabinoid-based medicines have been approved for the treatment of nausea and vomiting in AIDS and chemotherapy induced n/v, treatment of insomnia, neuropathic pain, stress, muscle spasms, and depression, and the treatment of spasticity related to multiple sclerosis.
