Charlotte’s Web is one of the most trusted botanical products on the market today. Charlotte’s Web is named for a nine-year-old girl named Charlotte Figi, who helped inspire the legalization of medical marijuana. At the age of 5, Charlotte, after only one dose of medical marijuana, she had experienced a reduction of epileptic seizure after suffering from Dravet syndrome. Dravet syndrome is a severe form of epilepsy that comes on during infancy. Born healthy, Charlotte’s epilepsy was discovered when at three- months- old, she had her first seizure. Her father, Matt Figi, had finished giving her a bath and was in the middle of diapering her.

Charlotte’s Web Oil was discovered in 2011. Because medicinal marijuana is legal in the state of Colorado, the Stanley brothers: Joel, Jesse, Jon, Jordan, Jared and Josh decided to create an oil from hemp. The cannabis oil is being marketed as a daily dietary supplement that is registered under the Federal law. Medical marijuana has been proven to be safe for long-term use. Charlotte’s Web Oil began when Josh Stanley grew a marijuana plant back in 2009 to help a cousin whose cancer treatment was not working for him. Paige Figi visited the brothers’ Realm of Caring Dispensary and shared her daughter’s sad story.

Mrs. Figi said that her daughter’s seizures could not be controlled by traditional medication for seizures, and she hoped the brothers could help her. Two years later, Charlotte is practically seizure-free from the product. Her parents are noticing brain connections that they have not seen for years. Charlotte is starting to laugh again after six months. Charlotte has stopped crying and is talking again. Her parents want to shout from the roof tops that Charlotte’s Web Oil has given them back their daughter, and this oil can help other children as well. Originally, Charlotte’s Web Oil was only for curing epileptic seizures.

Today, five years later, the oil is good for people who suffer from Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, migraines, cancer, and more. This is not a cure, but it can improve the quality of life. This oil comes in liquid, balm, and capsule form. As a liquid, it comes in many flavors including coconut, chocolate mint, olive oil, and unflavored. The capsules can be taken with water during meals.
