To that end, the ECDD did an initial review of a cannabis compound called cannabidiol (CBD). Recent evidence from animal and human studies shows that its use could have some therapeutic value for seizures due to epilepsy and related conditions. Current evidence also shows that cannabidiol is not likely to be abused or create dependence as for other cannabinoids (such as Tetra Hydro Cannabinol (THC), for instance). The ECDD therefore concluded that current information does not justify scheduling of cannabidiol and postponed a fuller review of cannabidiol preparations to May 2018, when the committee will undertake a comprehensive review of cannabis and cannabis related substances.

The Committee conducted preliminary reviews of cannabis-related substances that are currently subject to international control and determined that there was enough new robust scientific information about their public health harms and therapeutic value to re-evaluate their current level of international control: Cannabis (e.g. marijuana) and cannabis resin (e.g. hashish) Extracts and tinctures of cannabis (oils, edibles, liquids) Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) e.g. dronabinol Isomers of THC The ECCD also conducted a critical review of preparations considered to be pure cannabidiol (CBD), a major component of the plant that has been used in the treatment of childhood epilepsy. The ECDD recommended that preparations considered to be pure cannabidiol (CBD) not be placed under international drug control as the substance was not found to have psychoactive properties, and presents no potential for abuse or dependence.

(...) In keeping with the recommendation that preparations considered pure CBD not be controlled, and recognizing that trace levels of Δ9-THC may be found in such preparations, such as the concentration of 0.15 per cent in Epidiolex, while acknowledging that chemical analysis of Δ9-THC to an accuracy of 0.15 per cent may be difficult for some Member States: Recommendation 5.5: The Committee recommended that a footnote be added to Schedule I of the 1961 Convention to read “Preparations containing predominantly cannabidiol and not more than 0.2 per cent of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol are not under international control.”
