CBD Oil: The Powerful Tool Fighting For These Sick Kids

Hemp oil products like Charlotte’s Web have saved the lives of many children who suffer from epilepsy, and their parent’s are willing to go to great lengths to secure the oil extracts.

Until the U.S. Farm Bill was passed in February 2014, the families of epileptic children were flocking to Colorado to access a unique hemp oil extract known as Charlotte’s Web. While families were fighting for the lives of their loved ones, they were simultaneously testing Federal laws that prohibited them from accessing the hemp medicine. In this video from Time Magazine, some of the parents hide their identities to avoid any potential legal backlash.
