Charlotte’s Web is by far the most revolutionary cannabis strain of our time. This marijuana is grown specifically by the Stanley brothers to contain high levels of CBD along with low levels of THC (less than .3%), leading to an almost non-existent high while allowing for the medical benefits of CBD to be delivered to patients. It has become wildly popular due to a girl named Charlotte Figi, who suffers from Dravet’s Syndrome and was having hundreds of seizures a week. Since taking oil extract supplements derived from the Charlotte’s Web strain, Charlotte has seen a drop in her seizures from thousands per month to less than a handful. Charlotte’s Web has gained mainstream attention due to Figi’s story through documentaries such as Weed with Sanjay Gupta, The Doctors and The View.
Charlotte’s Web was originally called Hippies Disappointment due to its lack of THC and high CBD levels, giving a nearly non-existent high feeling that is typically associated with marijuana use while still providing the medical benefits that CBD can offer. Charlotte’s Web has proven to be a great choice for medical marijuana patients who are looking to receive the benefits of CBD without the psychoactive effects that THC provides.
Charlotte’s Web is not available in dry flowered form from any source. However, Charlotte’s Web is grown and CBD is extracted to be converted into oils and other products. Contact your local dispensary in order to see if Charlotte’s Web CBD extract is available.
