Charlotte Figi. Figi was born with epilepsy and at the young age of five would suffer up to 300 seizures a week. Her parents and doctors were besides themselves as to how to help this young girl. The doctors had heard of using marijuana to help alleviate the seizures but it really hadn't been tried before and it was uncharted territory.
They were able to break down the plant and eliminate the THC part of the plant and use the CBD side or cannabidiol. They would make it into an oil base like syrup and administer it to young Charlotte. The results were immediate. Seizures fell dramatically and now Charlotte lives an almost regular type childhood. Her seizures are now down to some four a month which is almost a miracle. What is so amazing about this story is that now in half the states of this country Charlotte's Web is legal in most states. It still has the stigma of being on the national list of do's and don't' as it is marijuana, but time will tell when or if this will change.
