CBD first burst onto the scene in 2013, when CNN featured a documentary about Charlotte Figi, a little girl with a severe case of Dravet syndrome.
When Charlotte was five years old, she was experiencing nearly 300 seizures a week and no treatments seemed to help.
Her parents were devastated, and they desperately searched for an alternative to conventional treatments. The scientific community took notice, and research began for the potential medical CBD benefits. Hundreds of studies have generated positive results, which has made the demand for CBD skyrocket.
