Have you heard about medical cannabis or cannabidol (CBD) as a potential treatment option for people with epilepsy and wondered if it could help your family? Do you want to learn more about how families may gain access to this potential treatment option? Are you curious about the experiences of families who have gained access? If so, you don’t want to miss this webinar.

During this webinar Dr. Kelly Knupp will discuss clinical studies on medical cannabis and what they have taught us. She will explain the potential risks associated with CBD use and the legal issues that have arisen in Colorado. Dr. Ben Whalley will review the existing research on the therapeutic effects and safety of cannabis. Our panelists will share personal experiences with CBD use, the realities of moving to a new state to gain access to this treatment option, how state and federal laws limit or allow access to this treatment option, the important role of research, and the process by which potential treatments gain Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.
