iMedica is probably the most comprehensive & feature rich WordPress theme that’s made for medical organizations. Responsive code, retina ready graphics, lightweight framework and very flexible structure makes it outstanding.

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.

  1. Steven McConnell disse:

    If this little girl, and her family doesn’t warm your heart, and convince
    you that Marijuana should be removed from Schedule 1, you are a heartless
    monster and should be forever shunned by the rest of humanity. The fact
    that people actually go to jail for doing everything they can to alleviate
    the suffering of these little ones, truly sickens me and shows that not
    only are there monsters in our midst, but that it’s these ghouls that
    actually rule the world. This is not a “conspiracy theory” and you don’t
    need to where “a tin foil hat” to see that this is not right. I’m sure
    there is a special level in hell for people that can justify their beliefs
    that “these hippies just want to get high” and who cares about a “bunch of
    stoners anyway“, while at the same time there popping every pill the doctor
    says they need, and washing them down with alcohol, because it‘s legal to
    do so. May God have mercy on your wretched souls.

  2. Michele Travis disse:

    I have epilepsy and it can ruin your life. Have had two brain surgeries,
    and am on so much medications that I get sick. Am down to 88 pounds, and I
    still have seizures! I have been in the ER twice in the past two months.
    I stop breathing after seizures. Making Cannabis legal can save lives,
    the part of Cannabis used to treat epilepsy is THC. It is not the part of
    the plant that gets people high. If you get a chance to vote on legalizing
    marijuana in your state please vote to legalize it. It not only helps
    people with epilepsy, it helps people with other medical problems.

  3. naturegirl2110 disse:

    I don’t kno about medicines and that kind of stuff. But I can see how it
    would work. I have epilepsy and when under stress and have trouble sleeping
    I’m more likely to have seizures. I kno marijuana slows down and relaxes
    the brain which can prevent seizures.

    • greveeen disse:

      CBD doesnt work in this way, as it has no psychoactive effect like THC.

    • naturegirl2110 disse:

      +greveeen What I meant is the sedative effect it has which I’m almost sure
      CBD has as well. I tend to have more seizures when stressed and I also have
      a big problem with insomia so that a bad combination. If CBD acts as a
      sedative then that would help me a lot.

  4. Terry Talton disse:

    God bless the Stanley Brothers for helping all of the family’s

  5. Boo ooO disse:

    CBD heals DNA, which is why it works perfectly for Dravet syndrome epilepsy
    , Dravet is damaged DNA
    These people are awake

  6. Ninjaeffyou54 disse:

    I have epilepsy and no longer take a gram a day of depakote, because,
    directly, of a cannabis extract.

  7. patrick crawford disse:

    Is it inappropriate to say I thought Charlotte had a little joint in her
    mouth when she walked out? hah
    Really though, this is great news! Spread the word!

  8. Marajuwana 1317 disse:

    I hope people know just because you remove thc doesn’t make it the bad
    marijuana, and cbd the good marijuana. I understand you dont want your
    child high but Both would work better hand and hand together, because you
    are taking something and breaking a piece of it off and giving it to
    someone. why not give them the whole… instead of a piece.

    • TheMatrixgeneration disse:

      Ya man, that is the right answer.

    • Dave Smith disse:

      youre absolutely right, but high CBD low THC strains still very important
      to allow people to take high doses in situations where they dont need or
      want THC, and allows them to then add as much THC on the side as they want
      from their THC-rich strains, best of both worlds 🙂

    • s ray disse:

      There are plenty of THC strains of medical marijuana that have the reduced
      amount of CBD. I have to combine a high CBD strain (that is above the
      presently legal below .3 THC, but above that somewhat in the dispensaries)
      with the high THC strains to round it out for medicinal use. For a while
      this month, my dispensary didn’t have the high CBD strain available;Not
      very reliable. Plus, I thought that ethically they would provide lab
      reports, but haven’t for me. Not very professional.

  9. Michael Mcbratney disse:

    Keep up the Great work…

  10. Michael Gonzalez disse:

    Why cant it be legal

  11. Leeanne Lodge disse:

    I am a medical patient here in canada and with out my card i could get 5
    years for holding a gram or even a joint. i thank god everyday that i do
    hold my card an am able to get the medical marijuana i need for the pain i
    am always in. I went from taking 4 morphine pills a day that would knock me
    out, i couldn’t function on them. now i take one a day. i also suffer from
    extreme dizzy spells almost black out point and no meds would gel i was
    having 40 a day now i have maybe 2-3. medical marijuana has saved my life.
    Its given me a new life. and it should be legal on a a point for medical
    use not that everyone can use it.

  12. Jenna Lorraine disse:

    Josh, I’d like to offer up our duplex as a resource for housing for those
    families seeking treatment in Colorado. PM me. Jenna Garner – Smith

  13. Dave Smith disse:

    Why wont you make Charlotte’s Web clones available so they can spread to
    the world??? Oh thats right, so you can commercial$$$e your oil sales.
    Anyway now there are other strains with ~20% CBD <2% THC, so we wont need
    Charlotte's Web but the selfishness of the Stanley bros won't be forgotten.

    • s ray disse:

      Theirs is the 3rd one I’ve tried;The other’s don’t EVEN compare. Theirs was
      a MUCH better price. Their supporting foundation is doing further research
      quicker than WAITING for it;THAT costs $, yet the product is still
      affordable for me. That’s not greedy like the others with sub par products
      taking advantage of those in medical need! Having <2% THC content is not
      legal Dave Smith.

    • Joe Brumfield disse:

      Yup! Thanks for the being aware of these snake oil salesmen!

      Yup! Thanks for the being aware of these snake oil salesmen!

  14. Fe Fiona disse:

    It is amazing the fact that medical marijuana has such healing impact in
    epileptic seizures but does it have side effects from smoking it?

  15. Joe Havay disse:

    Funny how he claim to have bred the high CBD variety.

  16. BLuNTED ReALiTY disse:

    Great story and I’m so pleased the little one is well xx

  17. jayronathon disse:

    I well up with emotion every time.

    This is beautiful:):):)

  20. Joe Brumfield disse:

    This plant helps so many. Unfortunately this guy is part of the CBD snake
    oil salesmen and these Charlotte’s Web guys and their methods are not on
    the up and up.
