Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: GWP42003-P
For the first 7 days of the treatment period, participants are to take GWP42003-P at a dose of 5 milligrams per kilogram per day (mg/kg/day), administered as 2 equally divided doses (i.e., 2.5 mg/kg in the morning and 2.5 mg/kg in the evening). On Day 8, participants are to increase the dose to 10 mg/kg/day, administered as 2 equally divided doses (i.e., 5 mg/kg in the morning and 5 mg/kg in the evening). The 10 mg/kg/day dose should be maintained for the remainder of the treatment period; however, per labeling, investigators may increase the dose to a maximum of 20 mg/kg/day if clinically warranted by titrating an additional 5 mg/kg/day each week until reaching the maximum dose. GWP42003-P will be taken b.i.d. (morning and evening).
Drug: GWP42003-P
oral solution of 100 milligrams per milliliter (mg/mL) cannabidiol (CBD)
Other Names:
  • Cannabidiol
  • CBD
