Some of the biggest breakthroughs in science usually involve improving human health and decreasing mortality rate. While illnesses and death are seen by many as part of the circle of life, it is actually the agonizing effects of these health conditions that make this natural process very hard to deal with.
Thus, people are always on the lookout for better treatments. Sometimes, it is no longer just about finding a cure, but a way to make things easier for a terminally-ill person. That being said, desperate families are starting to consider unconventional treatments which now includes the very controversial cannabis plant.

Cannabis is widely known to have psychoactive properties. However, contrary to popular belief, it actually has a particular variety that does not necessarily cause the kind of “high” that is commonly attributed to the plant. Some call these varieties as medical marijuana while others refer to them as hemp.
Basically, hemp is a specific cannabis variety that differs from the typical marijuana in terms of its chemical make-up and effects. One specific example of such variety has made it to the headlines due to the motivation of its discovery and how it has changed the life of a young girl and her family.

Charlotte’s Web is a Sativa-dominant and hemp-derived strain that was initially bred for higher levels of CBD. The strain was developed by the Colorado-based breeder, The Stanley Brothers.
What makes this strain special is the fact that it was named after Charlotte Fiji–a young girl suffering from Dravet Syndrome which causes her to have several seizures a day. Charlotte’s Web became the focus of a nationwide effort to make medical marijuana legally accessible for epileptic patients like Charlotte.
Although the legality of such medical alternative is yet to be made a reality in most states, Florida has already legalized it since 2014.
