Charlotte’s Web | STRAIN REVIEW
Cannabis Sativa x Industrial Hemp
Charlotte’s Web is a rare cannabis strain and isn’t an easy find. This Colorado product has gained worldwide recognition for effectively treating Dravet Syndrome in young patient Charlotte Figi. Since then it has gained cult-like status among medical cannabis advocates. The strain has also been at the forefront of numerous legislative moves legalizing CBD.
Charlotte’s Web was developed by Colorado breeders The Stanley Brothers specifically for its low THC content. This makes the strain non-psychoactive and an extremely effective option for treating a range of medical conditions. Because there is no high it is appropriate for use in children and others who do not want the psychoactive effects that the rest of us love.
The genetics used to create Charlotte’s Web are licensed as industrial hemp, making it far more legally accessible than other high CBD strains.
The real Charlotte’s Web strain is not available for purchase in any form outside of CW Hemp, however, counterfeits, imposters, and bastard sisters are available in the growing community. The strain I am reviewing today is a second generation harvest, home-grown by my husband.
Unassuming aroma and taste, with strong notes of earth and pine.
Real Charlotte’s Web has no discernible high. I feel a significant energy boost when I smoke my homegrown CW. I also feel focused, present, and free of anxiety.
This strain has significant amounts of Cannabidiol (CBD). CBD’s effectiveness treating severe seizures is well-documented. It is a demonstrated nerve protectant and is used with success in treating epilepsy in both children and adults. CBD is used to treat everything from chronic pain to cancer, and because Charlotte’s Web contains so little THC, patients are about to medicate without affecting their daily life.
