Charlotte Figi was 3 months old when she had her first seizure.
By the time she was five years old, she was having 300 grand mal seizures every week – her seizures were so violent, her parents signed a ‘do not resuscitate’ order in her medical records.
Her parents never gave up, even though she was in a wheelchair, had feeding and oxygen tubes, and was seizing every thirty minutes, 24 hours a day.
Charlotte’s mom heard about a strain of medical marijuana that was very low in THC content, the psychoactive agent in marijuana, and very high in Cannabidiol (CBD), a compound in cannabis that has incredible medicinal value, but doesn’t get people stoned.
After years in which only high-THC cannabis was available, CBD-rich strains are now being grown by, and for, medical users.
Charlotte’s mom and dad discovered the Stanley brothers, one of Colorado’s largest marijuana growers. Charlotte’s parents put an olive oil solution containing high CBD extract under her tongue and today, 6 year old Charlotte is thriving. Her seizures have decreased to only two or three times per month, mostly in her sleep. Not only is she walking, she can ride her bike, feed herself and is talking more each day. Miraculous.
What's the Difference Between Medical Marijuana and CBD?
Without the psycho-activity associated with marijuana, CBD-rich cannabis from hemp makes it an appealing treatment option for patients seeking relief from inflammatory, pain, anxiety, and anti-psychotic effects without any of the side effects of the THC content. Our oil is completely safe for anyone to use because the oil is derived from hemp, rather than from marijuana, and legal in all 50 states and 40 countries!
Clinical scientific studies highlight CBD’s potential as a mediator against conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD had also demonstrated neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its potential in the race to find the cure for cancer are currently being “investigated at several academic research centers in the U.S. and elsewhere.”
It is very important to note that the effectiveness of CBD oil in treating the conditions mentioned (and many others), have not yet been scientifically proven, and the research is primarily still in the pre-clinical trial stages.

CBD from Hemp Does Not Contain THC
Cannabis CBD Hemp Oil drops are extracted from industrial hemp, not marijuana. While both plants are of the same cannabis family, they differ in hemp does not contain the hallucinogenic compound THC.
Cannabidiol (CBD) and the other cannabinoids (CBC, CBG, CBG-A, CBC-A, CBN and many others) found in hemp are showing to provide numerous health benefits for infections, autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, and other physical and neurological issues that arise from inflammation in the body.
You can add the oil to your food or liquid, or put directly on the skin or under the tongue. The best quality oils are extracted from non-GMO hemp, grown without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers, sugar free, low-glycemic, non-psychoactive.
