Charlotte's Web CBD (Cannabis) Oil

I can't believe I'm actually writing this right now.  For the past few years, ever since I heard of the amazing benefits of the strain of Cannabis oil called Charlotte's Web, I've looked forward to the day when Levi could try it.

NOTE:  This marijuana oil does NOT cause one to get high.  There's no psychotropic effect at all.

For those of you who don't know, Charlotte's Web is named after Charlotte Figi, the first epileptic patient that was helped with this oil.  She was five-years-old, and had lost the ability to walk, talk, eat, and more, when she began this medication.  She was having 300 grand mal seizures a week.  After the first dose of CBD oil, she was seizure free for a week.  Now, she only has a seizure once in a great while, typically while she's sleeping.  Charlotte has regained all these abilities and is a normal little girl again.

We saw our neurologist today, and he agreed that Levi is an excellent candidate for CBD oil. Illinois does not have a dispensary that produces this strain of marijuana oil, so we have to order the hemp oil from Colorado. This is wonderful because we can start it right away, but we can't go through insurance until Illinois produces the strain. I'll receive it sometime next week!!!

Although we know that, just like any drug, it works differently for every person, we are praying that it will take away his seizures for good.  I plan to update frequently once we start Charlotte's Web, Please pray that we see amazing results.  This has the potential to help Levi with every issues he has, from seizures to cerebral palsy pain to vomiting and nausea, and even more!
