In California, any product containing CBD is regulated by the state’s Medicinal and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act. It’s considered a highly controlled substance, and doctors can’t prescribe it.

Democratic Assemblymember Jim Wood authored a new bil (AB710) that would make it so any CBD drug approved by the FDA and designated as at least a schedule two drug — the second strictest drug category— can be treated like any other prescription medication.

Right now, Epidiolex is approved as a schedule one substance, but the Drug Enforcement Agency is expected to change it to a schedule two soon.
