The Rising Popularity of CBD
Cannabidiol gained popularity after the broadcast of Weed by CNN Special, back in 2013. It showed how five- year old Charlotte Figi was treated from an extremely severe form of epilepsy, Dravet Syndrome with CBD. Her seizures were reduced from 300 a week to one a day.
A year after the airing of Weed, the waiting list for CBD products rose to more than 12,000 families. Studies in Israel have proved that 89% children suffering from treatment- resistant pediatric epilepsy had a reduction in their seizure frequency.
