This Phase 3 study will enroll participants diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome (DS) who are still experiencing at least one tonic-clonic, clonic, and/or focal seizures with motor components (FSMC) per week, despite ongoing treatment with up to three antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), and meet the other inclusion/exclusion criteria. Following a 28-day baseline period, participants will begin an 84-day treatment period. Participants will be assigned to receive twice-daily doses of placebo or cannabidiol oral solution at the highest dose determined to be safe in a previous trial. Following study completion, all participants will be invited to receive Cannabidiol Oral Solution in an open label extension study (under a separate protocol).
