The girl who changed for ever the way we understand cannabis and health.

Charlotte Figi, the little girl who inspired a worldwide health movement for the of children suffering from epilepsy died on Tuesday night of possibly related causes with Covid-19. She was 13.

 Through their Facebook page the family announced her death.

"Charlotte is no longer suffering, she has stopped having seizures forever. Thank you all for your love" posted her mom.

It is possible that the symptoms of the virus have manifested too late, according to their relatives, she had already been analyzed at he hospital, but in the last few days her situation got worst.

The story

Charlotte suffered from Dravet’s Syndrome, a disease which is a strange disease that occurs when children are young. Her story begins at 3 years when she had at least 100 seizures a day. From then on, his parents started a long way to find the best pharmaceutical drug to treat her disease.

No positive results. Looking online, her parents found information about a girl in California who was treated with a cannabis-based component and that's how they started looking for an alternative in Colorado.

As cannabis was already legal in Colorado, her mother approached one of the cannabis dispensaries in Denver where she found the exact extracts that might help her with this disease. They payed $800 for small extract of these genetics, but the seizures stopped for a week and then reduced to 2 each month. This was a miracle.

The owners of this dispensary are the now famous Stanley Brothers, six siblings who grew different types of cannabis among high in CBD and low THC. Seeing the result their strain had on the little girl, the Stanley Brothers started working with the family and then payed tribute to her by naming it Charlotte's  Web, wbich by the way, relates to a well-known tale. From then on, a very important CBD genetic.

CNN and Sanjay Gupta told the story and changed the world forever

In 2013, CNN released the first series of its documentary “Weed” which was presented by Dr.  Sanjay Gupta who was totally considered against the use of cannabis.

His reporting and experience with the family in addition to the Stanley brothers' work made him publicly retract in an editorial called:  Why I Change My Mind on Weed.

There he explains the truth of things and after this event the world’s perception of cannabis as a medicine is seen as a truth and it keeps rising awareness. If you haven't watch this, do yourself a favor:

This had an impact on changing laws at the national level and gave hope to millions of families around the world.

"I have been systematically wrong for the 70 years of prohibition in the United States and I have to apologize for the roll I played in spreading this message," Gupta said.

In their website, the Stanley Brothers send love to the family and the world.

"Charlotte inspired the world. Inspirar is a word that fallsshort. She was divine, her history builds communities, her need built hope and her legacy will build harmony. And it was a light that lit the world. She was a little girl who wore all those little shoulders."
