Documentary Charlottes Web Cannabis

Featured last year on CNN, Josh Stanley and his brothers developed a non-psychotropic strain of marijuana which is drastically reducing seizures for many pediatric epilepsy patients in Colorado, called “Charlotte’s web“. The focus of A Time documentary Charlottes Web Cannabis.

Josh recently also spoke at a TEDx convention in Boulder, Colorado: “The surprising story of medical marijuana and pediatric epilepsy“.

And while more and more studies are being published on making use of the various endocannabinoids (like CBD) in the battle against cancer, using medical marijuana as cancer treatment for children remains very controversial.

VICE too picked up the story of using medical marijuana to treat various diseases in children last year and now TIME magazine is at it with a new feature documentary which has been embedded below.

    I have ILD/Rhuematoid Arthritis/Fibromyalgia/insomnia. I’m willing to go somewhere that has practitioners who understand that healing the body doesn’t include destruction medication regimens. This is not about getting high this about relief from pain and side effects caused by conditions for which there is no cure.

    “And while more and more studies are being published on making use of the various endocannabinoids (like CBD) in the battle against cancer,” CBD is not an endocannabinoid. Its just a cannabinoid. Endocannabinoids are produced by the body. CBD is a phytocannabinoid, which is produced by a plant.
