Because of the stigma around Cannabis in the UK it’s hard to imagine what the general public – or worse, the government – would say about medicinal cannabis for children.
Well if you’re not so sure yourself, prepare to be convinced by his TED talk by Josh Stanley who has been treating kids with epilepsy using cannabis, after developing a low THC strain they called called Charlotte’s Web.
This strain doesn’t give the psychoactive effects of cannabis, but does allow amazing treatment results on patients, some of which were having constant seizures for 5 years, and are not having 1-2 a week. Others have been seizure-free for over a year!
The video also touches on other uses for medicinal cannabis use, further cementing the proof that cannabis is an amazing medicine that can be used in so many ways to treat very sick people.
Josh will sift through the propaganda, fear and greed encompassing medical marijuana. Recently featured on CNN, Josh and his brothers developed a non-psychotropic strain of marijuana which is drastically reducing seizures for many pediatric epilepsy patients in Colorado. With millions facing life-threatening illnesses, Josh outlines the hurdles needed to effect social change and maps a path toward helping those who desperately need revolutionary medicine.
