This is the amazing story of 5 year old Charlotte Figi. Charlotte suffered from Dravet Syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy found in children. From the time she was 2 she was having over 300 seizures a week which drastically affected her ability to learn, speak or even walk. She was unable to keep up with her twin sister. She was catatonic and nothing the doctors could do for her helped. All of their “medicines” had no effect on her condition and if anything they made her worse. Some of them almost killing her.
After exhausting all other treatments, her parents turned to the internet to see what alternative treatments may be available. To their surprise they found that a certain strain of cannabis (the strain was later named Charlotte’s Web in her honor) was specifically helping children with Dravet Syndrome.
So they made the decision to give cannabis oil to their daughter and from the first dose the noticed results. The 300+ seizures she was experiencing each week was reduced to only 1. Her parents have been amazed with the results and are so happy to get their daughter back.
