One of our favorite CBD success stories of all time is that of Charlotte Figi, a nine year old girl from Colorado who has suffered from Dravent syndrome since she was 3 months old. For those who are unaware, Dravent Syndrome, also known as severe myoclonic epilepsy of infancy (SMEI), is a form of epilepsy that usually occurs in children under the age of three and results in numerous daily spontaneous seizures. Currently there is no known cure.
Charlotte had her first seizure when she was three months old, and they continued daily until for the next five years until her parents gave Charlotte her first dosage of CBD oil. To their amazement, after that first dose Charlotte didn’t have a seizure for the rest of the day, or the next week, or the next month. After years of trying everything under the sun, something was finally working.
The only aspect of Charlotte’s success that wasn’t surprising was the negative feedback the Figi family received from the media, who deemed the parents irresponsible for “getting their daughter high on marijuana,” focusing on the negative connotations with marijuana rather that the health and happiness of their little girl. They skipped over the fact that the key to this treatment was not THC, the psychoactive component in marijuana, but the cannabinoid CBD, which is present in marijuana but does not have any psychoactive side effects.
Unfortunately, because of federal laws that list marijuana as a class 1 drug, it has been very difficult for similar children suffering from this and other similar diseases to get access to similar treatment.
This is where we come in.
