CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta explores the effects of marijuana and the brain. Originally against marijuana, Dr. Gupta has changed his mind upon doing his own research. Dr. Gupta goes to Colorado to meet with Matt and Paige Figi, who’s Daughter Charlotte Figi (otherwise known to her family and friends as Charlie) experiencing Dravet Syndrome and trying to find medication that will help her live a normal life. As a last resort after failing with several different (very addictive and dangerous) drugs, the Figi’s choose to try marijuana oil on their daughter with Colorado’s Amendment 20. This particular marijuana oil was extracted from a strain crossed and bred by the Stanley Brothers out of Boulder, CO called “Charlotte’s Webb” and this strain was very special. This strain was very special because it was bred to be very high in CBD, or cannabidiol, and had no THC. THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, is one of the many cannabinoids that gives you the psychoactive effects of marijuana (or the “high”). Check the video out for the exclusive details Dr. Sanjay gupta shares with the audience.
