Colorado to allow CBD prescriptions.

methode2ftimes2fprod2fweb2fbin2fad29528c-6e8d-11e8-85ce-4c0c3fdda365Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has signed a bill to permit doctors to prescribe CBD medicines provided they have won approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration – a development that could happen within a matter of weeks.

An FDA advisory panel in April unanimously recommended that the agency approve Epidiolex, a CBD medicine designed to treat a rare form of epilepsy.

The FDA is expected to make a decision by late June.

British drugmaker GW Pharmaceuticals, which produces Epidolex, has worked for years to enter the potentially lucrative U.S. drug market.
