Cannabis oil

I am terrified of starting my 11 year old on the medication suggested (carbamazepine or Lomotriine) I was worried at most of the possible side effects, but then I read the warnings for people of Asian ancestry and the strong recommendation that all these people are screened for the HLA-B*1502 and the risk of the Stevens-Johnson syndrome. My daughter’s consultant seems to think this is unnecessary even thoUGH 100000 people die annually from the SJS in the US. I have opted for Chinese medicine for the time being until at least I have a clearer picture. Can any one offer any advice (including any facts on the effectivenes s CBD Oil) please.
