Cannabidiol has been licensed as an add-on treatment for seizures caused by tuberous sclerosis complex for patients aged 2 years and over. Clinical trial evidence shows that it reduces seizure frequency and increases seizure-free days compared to a placebo. While the cost-effectiveness estimates are uncertain, the benefits of reducing the severity of seizures and lowering the risk of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy make it an appropriate use of NHS resources. Therefore, it is recommended as a treatment option by NICE.
