A panel of government health advisers gave a unanimous recommendation Thursday to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to approve Epidiolex, a CBD medicine for rare epilepsy conditions that don’t respond to other drugs.

A final decision on rescheduling would be made by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the FDA’s parent agency, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The advisory panel’s 13-0 recommendation doesn’t bind the agency to approving Epidiolex, but its recommendations carry serious weight.

The FDA has said it will issue a decision by late June.
