Charlotte’s Web is a high CBD strain of medicinal cannabis with less than .03% THC, enabling it’s breeder to classify the plants with the state of Colorado as hemp instead of medical cannabis. This allows The Stanley Brothers to grow at a much larger scale and apparently opens up the possibility of exporting Charlotte’s Web.
Research into CBD has shown 84% success in reducing a child’s seizure frequency while taking cannabidiol-enriched cannabis. Of these, two (11%) reported complete seizure freedom, eight (42%) reported a greater than 80% reduction in seizure frequency, and six (32%) reported a 25-60% seizure reduction. Other beneficial effects included increased alertness, better mood, and improved sleep. Side effects included drowsiness and fatigue.
