CBD Oil Now For Sale in United Kingdom

CBD Oil Now For Sale in United Kingdom

A brand new cannabis extract has officially been put on shelves in at least one clinic in the United Kingdom. The product is named for Charlotte Figi, a child who experienced up to 300 grand mal seizures a week until her parents tried medical marijuana after traditional medications and treatments did not help. After the first dose of the oil extract, her condition improved drastically. About the miraculous turnaround, Charlotte’s father, Matt Figi stated:

“I want to scream it from the rooftops. I want other people, other parents, to know that this is a viable option.”

Thanks to legislation that was passed on July 31, more families and patients in the United Kingdom now have access to the product, which is affectionately known as “Charlotte’s Web.” UK CBD is the first company in Britain to sell the oil, and the company’s owner and CEO, Nicolas Ellis, said:

“[W]e are extremely proud to partner with CW Botanicals and to legally add their exclusive Charlotte’s Web products to our already impressive range. Their passion and dedication to making such high quality products is already well known globally.”

Ellis adds that not only will the oil improve the lives of many who are struggling with severe epilepsy and other medical conditions, but those who simply wish to add it as a supplement will also benefit nutritionally. Hemp is full of vitamins, minerals and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

The U.K. is one prime example of shifting attitudes and beliefs surrounding marijuana and its health benefits. For example, one recent petition in the country calling for the legalization of cannabis for medicinal and personal use garnered over 200,000 signatures in less than a week.

Supporters include the famous CNN doctor Sanjay Gupta, who is known for reversing his opinion on medical marijuana and is now one of its strongest advocates. Thanks to voices like his and the stories from parents of children like Charlotte all over the world, lawmakers are now also beginning to see the value of using cannabis products like Charlotte’s Web as valuable treatments for a variety of medical conditions.

Obama Changes Tone on Marijuana in TV Special

Obama Changes Tone on Marijuana in TV Special

President Obama has a very on again, off again relationship with marijuana. Good news for now, not only does he fully support medical marijuana, he is said to be “enthusiastic” about it.

A CNN special called “Weed 3,” that will be aired on Sunday, depicts President Obama stating his full support of medical marijuana, in addition to advocating for alternative drug abuse treatment that does not include imprisonment. He believes that looking at the science behind it, as opposed to the ideology, is a better way to go.

Elaborating that treating drug abuse issues from a public health model approach instead of an incarceration model would be more beneficial. He cited the declining use of tobacco as a result of that, and explained that this can be accomplished with marijuana without throwing anyone in jail.

Obama is advocating for the education of people about the substances they are using, and making sure that anyone who has an addiction knows when and how to get help.

Weed 3 is the third installment in an ongoing documentary series by CNN’s chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta. Dr. Gupta is an acclaimed neurosurgeon who has become highly supportive of medical marijuana in recent years.

While most network TV specials are centered around the economics of the emerging legal cannabis market, it seems the narrative of Weed 3 will show viewers more insights into medical applications and public policy.
