Charlotte’s Web is a miracle hemp sativa strain that is high in CBD levels while containing either absolutely zero or close to no THC contents. It was created by the Stanley Brothers team out of Colorado with the intentions of making a strain to treat seizures and epilepsy. The Stanley Brothers mission began when they met Charlotte Figi, a young child with a rare form of epilepsy called Dravey syndrome. Unfortunately, modern medicine and treatment was ineffective, which led Charlotte’s parents to seeking alternative medicine. The Stanley Brothers sought to create an intensely medicinal strain with no intoxicating or psychoactive effects that still retained the plentiful benefits of cannabis. After much research and devotion, The Stanley Brothers found the approriate genetics to create Charlotte’s Web with its 30:1 CBD to THC ratio, which they named in honour of Charlotte Figi. Don’t be fooled by the less than 1% average THC concentration of this sativa – it’s impeccable power as a medicinal strain lies in its’ whopping 15-20% CBD levels. Almost 300 times more concentrated in CBD than your average recreational strain, Charlotte’s Web has made quite a name for itself with its healing properties. It has been recognized by famed doctor Sanjay Gupta and praised for its effectiveness at treating pain, inflammation and diseases such as epilepsy in pediatric and adult patients.
The effects of Charlotte’s Web and its’ higher than typical CBD levels have been recognized and appreciated by many stoners around the world. It gained mass public recognition after a special was done by CNN on the effectiveness of CBD and strains like Charlotte’s Web in particular on the treatment of many ailments and illnesses. With CBD levels that range between 15-20%, the tremendous CBD content of Charlotte’s Web is roughly 300 times greater than your average medicinal and recreational strain. Not many CBD-focused strains are nearly strong or well-recognized as Charlotte’s Web. True Charlotte’s Web genetics are highly cherished, and are often used to make many CBD infused products such as tinctures, ointments and edibles.
