Why FDA approval for CBD matters

EPIDIOLEX is the only FDA-approved prescription CBD medicine, which among many things, means that it has a safety and efficacy profile that has been thoroughly evaluated in clinical trials. It also means that this plant-based, never synthetic, highly purified form of CBD is manufactured to meet the high standards of the FDA's current Good Manufacturing Practices and the World Health Organization's Good Agricultural Practices.

Rigorously tested safety

The safety profile of FDA-approved EPIDIOLEX has been studied for over 3 years. More than 40,000 families made the choice to start on EPIDIOLEX

Non–FDA approved CBD products may be inaccurately labeled

There have been studies of non–FDA approved CBD products that have shown wildly inaccurate labeling. This is because they aren’t regulated in the same way as EPIDIOLEX.

In one study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), of the non–FDA approved CBD products tested:

Medicine bottle with down arrow icon


had less CBD than claimed
on the label

Medicine bottle with up arrow icon


contained more CBD than
claimed on the label

Microscope with THC icon


included detectable levels of
tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that
could cause intoxication
especially among children
