Several months after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the use of a drug derived from marijuana for the first time, the drug became available in the U.S. on Thursday.

Epidiolex will be legally used to treat two serious and rare kinds of epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome, with the compound cannabidiol, also known as CBD, found in hemp and marijuana. Epidiolex is the first approved treatment for Dravet syndrome, according to the FDA.
