Nobody was manufacturing or selling CBD oil in 2012. That’s when the seven Stanley brothers devoted themselves to developing a CBD-rich strain of hemp that would help then five-year-old Charlotte Figi. She was suffering from Dravet’s Syndrome, a disease of epilepsy that can cause hundreds of seizures per week, and CBD-rich hemp helped stop those seizures. From that mission, Charlotte’s Web was born — and a stampede of others eventually followed. Sadly, Charlotte was a victim of the 2020 coronavirus, but her legacy lives on; she and her parents had the courage to try a then-unproven medicine that helped save her life, and brought CBD oil to the masses.

Charlotte’s Web used organic, Colorado-grown hemp “expertly bred by the Stanley Brothers to optimize growth, health, and phytochemical profiles using scientifically determined inputs,” as detailed on their website. 

Extraction method

Charlotte’s Web uses carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction to isolate cannabinoids, which allows the ability to derive a high concentration of mostly CBD, but also other compounds like cannabigerol (CBG), cannabichromene (CBC), and cannabinoid (CBN).   

Charlotte’s Web also uses isopropyl alcohol extraction, which allows for the extraction of terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds. “Today, the CO2 extraction method is used for most products, while the Original Formula is still created via alcohol extraction, just as it has been since the Stanley Brothers first shared it with Charlotte.”  

What we like about Charlotte’s Web

Charlotte’s Web began as a mission to save a little girl, and from there it grew into an industry-leading company. We like that Charlotte’s Web has stayed true to its roots, by paying attention to social responsibility, and continuously innovating to bring new products to consumers. They’ve earned certification by the U.S. Hemp Authority, and are in the process of achieving USDA Organic certification.
