The plant known as Charlotte’s Web was developed in 2011 by the Stanley brothers through crossbreeding a specific strain of marijuana with an industrial hemp plant. This process created a variety with less tetrahydrocannabinol, or better known as THC, and more cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD. Charlotte’s Web is only bred for medical usage. Because there is less THC and high in CBD it is ideal for people looking help with a variety of illnesses and can offer other health benefits as well. It has been administered to epilepsy patients, including children, in the form of an oil.
The plant and oil are named after Charlotte Figi. Her parents felt it was their last resort in saving their baby’s life. Charlotte was two-years-old, when she was diagnosed with Dravat syndrome. Charlotte was experiencing many grand mal seizures a month. The seizures occurred every half hour and were quite violent. She repeatedly went into cardiac arrest and was confined to a wheelchair. Her doctors upset and out of options, recommended her parents put her into a medically-induced coma so her body could recover. This not being an good option for a two-year-old, her parents started researching better options.
That’s when they read about the Stanley brothers and their experimentation of a new low THC, high CBD strain of cannabis. It proved unprofitable because of the lack of THC. The Figi flew to Colorado to meet the brothers and explain Charlotte’s condition. After much discussion and research, they agreed to make the strain into a liquid for her. It improved her epilepsy so drastically, the Stanley brothers and Charlotte have gained national attention.
