It’s been a while since we’ve had a thread about this. A few years ago, a family in the Colorado Springs region developed an oil from marijuana that is high in CBD and very low in THC. They called it “Charlotte’s Web,” after a young girl named Charlotte, who has a very severe form of epilepsy.
Anecdotal evidence – which is all we have at the moment – shows a remarkable success rate with this oil. This experiment has been going on for about four years now, and hundreds of families have moved to Colorado out of desperation, because no medication was controlling their children’s seizures. The anecdotes are piling up, and so far there doesn’t seem to be any major side effects from this oil.
Some of these families are trying to change their home state’s laws, so that they can move back. They’re also trying to change federal law.
