Her epileptic seizures were already severe enough to reach 300 timesa week at age 3, which is equivalent to every episode of half an hour. Asseeking medical care was fruitless, in 2011, Charlotte's parents risked beingjailed and let her tried cannabis extract CBD and the effect was outstanding. Ayear later, Charlotte's epileptic seizures have been controlled only four timesa month. She basically lives in a normal girl's life.

According to incompletestatistics, medicinal Cannabis with high CBD content in the United Statesbenefits at least 10,000 families each year. With the deepening of scientificresearch, this figure is still rising.
