Running out of options, the young girl’s family moved to Colorado, one of the few states at the time that had medical marijuana as an option. It was in Colorado where Charlotte was treated with CBD oil. A year later, she was living a fully functioning life and only suffering a couple of seizures a month.
There is a reason why medical marijuana has gained more steam than your favorite vaporizer. Each year, an increasing number of states vote in favor of this form of medicine. The movement that has lead to the sweeping legalization of marijuana can be pointed to the day the world was introduced to CBD oil.
Before marijuana legalization started sweeping the States, the plant had a stigma attached to it. Prior to ever hearing the term, “medical marijuana,” novices to the concept presumed cannabis was a recreational drug that would lead you down the rabbit hole to worse situations such as meth or heroin. After all, that’s what people have been taught for generations.
These fears were caused by a trickling down effect of generational folklore based off anti-cannabis propaganda that dates back to the 30’s with Reefer Madness all the way to the “War on Drugs” Nixon-era of the 70’s. A large section of the population’s only introduction to marijuana was through extreme caricatures acting unlike any typical marijuana experience. However, this stigma has latched on through the generations. Like many evolutionary changes in society, it’s been a slow roll-out, but marijuana legalization has gained some traction.
