The reason CBD oil and CBD products are beginning to become mainstream have a lot to do with a girl named Charlotte Figi. Charlotte and her parents were featured in a documentary about medical marijuana (titled "Weed") which showcased her severe epilepsy, but also how her condition drastically improved through the use of CBD oil. At the time, it was controversial. However, it was taken seriously enough for CBD oil to be studied as a potential pharmaceutical drug, culminating in the 2018 FDA approval of Epidiolex, a CBD oil that's prescribed for two severe forms of childhood epilepsy. Subsequently, CBD is slowly being acknowledged as having substantial potential medical benefits and is growing into a huge industry, which is partially thanks to Charlotte Figi (featured left; photo cred: Nichole Montanez). If you or someone you know has had their life improved by use of CBD products, she helped pave the way.
