Colorado: Transdermal Gel Pens Offer New Delivery Method For Charlotte's Web Hemp Oil


Transdermal Gel Pens Offer Accurate, Discreet Delivery

CW Botanicals and Mary’s Nutritionals on Tuesday announced a partnership that expands the ways in which clients can take the Stanley Brothers’ Charlotte’s Web™ hemp oil.

The first new product as a result of the partnership, a transdermal gel pen, is available now on http://www.cwbotanicals.com and http://www.marysnutritionals.com for purchase and shipping nationwide.

“We’re seeing a general social acceptance for the use of hemp products rich in cannibidiol (CBD), in large part because of the story of Charlotte’s Web, which has created a demand for more innovative delivery methods,” said Joel Stanley, CEO of CW Botanicals. “The transdermal gel pen manufactured by Mary’s is a highly accurate, safe and innovative way for clients to benefit from Charlotte’s Web.”

Mary’s Nutritionals, the sister company of Mary’s Medicinals, manufactures a nutritional supplement line enriched with CBD and other plant-based nutrients. Its research and development team pioneered what it calls "the industry’s first transdermal cannabis patch" for accurate and discreet cannabinoid dosing.

“Mary’s mission is to ease pain—and CW Botanicals embodies that sentiment with Charlotte’s Web,” said Nicole Smith, CEO of Mary’s Nutritionals and Mary’s Medicinals. “As we hear more and more stories of lives being transformed by CBD, there is a growing need to get this compound to as many people in need as possible.

California: Exhale Med Center Offers Highest Tested and Rare CBD Strain


Pioneers in cultivating CBD (cannabidiol) genetics for over two years, Exhale Med Center, the #1 rated medical marijuana shop on Yelp, carries one of the rarest strains of CBD-rich cannabis found today, called “CBD Web.” This strain contains 16 percent CBD to 2 percent THC, a ratio high enough to comfort the parents of a sick child suffering from epilepsy, giving them the confidence that the child will not feel high while reaping the medicinal rewards.

CBD Web is a constant at Exhale Med Center, in addition to three variations of CBD-rich strain genetics, CBD edibles, tinctures, creams, Rick Simpson Oils, and many different forms of concentrates. With last year's release of Dr. Sanjay Gupta's CNN Special Weed, a demand has been created for highly concentrated CBD products that will help patients’ symptoms without giving them a psychoactive high.

Known as one of the elite shops in Los Angeles, Exhale Med Center is a Prop D compliant, “Pre-ICO,” medical marijuana pioneer, offering one of the best selections of strain variations in town, in every price range. From high-end indoor sativas and hybrids from the Bay Area and top shelf indicas from SoCal to the outdoor and green house varieties from Northern California’s ‘Emerald Triangle’, Exhale says its range of more than 50 strains offers a quality remedy for most ailments. This December will mark their first year anniversary in their new zone-compliant location at 980 North La Cienega Blvd, Suite 102, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

U.S.: New Review of Epilepsy and Medical Marijuana Provides Scientific Evidence


"Cannabis in the Treatment of Epilepsy" comes as demand grows for using the plant to treat intractable seizure disorders

The medical research group American Herbal Pharmacopoeia (AHP) has issued a new scientific review entitled "Cannabis in the Treatment of Epilepsy," which it is offering for free to the public. The review compiles much of the leading and historical research on epilepsy and cannabis (medical marijuana) for use by scientists, physicians, patients, and parents, as well as those producing and manufacturing it for treatment.

This newly compiled scientific information on epilepsy and medical marijuana comes as CNN correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta aired a follow-up documentary to last year's "Weed," both of which feature children whose parents use cannabis to help treat rare and sever forms of epilepsy unresponsive to medication. "Weed 2" highlights the plight of Vivian Wilson, a two-year-old who suffered 75 seizures a day, while Dr. Gupta's first documentary featured Charlotte Figi, a seven-year-old whose use of cannabis reduced her seizures from 300 per week to three or four a month.

"This review of cannabis and epilepsy provides scientific foundation for the claims being made by CNN correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta," said ASA Executive Director Steph Sherer. "This material provides us with the tools to increase our knowledge and build on the research that already exists."

Colorado: Alabama Family Relocates To Treat Epileptic Daughter With Marijuana

An Alabama family is celebrating their first New Year in Colorado after relocating to treat their epileptic daughter with medical marijuana.

Butch and Mandy Swann of Haleyville, Ala., moved to Colorado on September 15 with their children Allie, 14; Cy, 6; and Carter, 2. Allie has violent seizures that brain surgery and potent pharmaceuticals haven't helped, reports Martin J. Reed at Al.com.

The parents administer three oral doses of marijuana-derived CBD oil, containing cannabidiol, to Allie every day in order to control her seizures.

"This has kind of been, I wouldn't say a depressing Christmas because we're trying to make it as good as we can for the children, but it's not like back at home," Butch Swann said. "It's sad to an extent that we don't have our family, but at the same time we understand what Christmas is all about -- that's the birth of Jesus. As long as the children are OK, that's all that matters."

The Swanns uprooted their family to give their teenage daughter a chance to change her life with CBD oil, which doesn't product marijuana's "high" but helps control the seizures which started when Allie was just six months old. Doctors don't fully understand the cause. The Swanns were inspired to try medical marijuana for their daughter after they saw Dr. Sanjay Gupta's CNN medical marijuana documentary, "Weed."

U.S.: Dr. Sanjay Gupta Changes His Mind; Now Supports Medical Marijuana


By Steve Elliott

CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta has reversed his position on medical marijuana. The former staunch opponent of pot now endorses its use in a new essay and an upcoming documentary.

"We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States, and I apologize for my own role in that," Gupta, who penned a 2009 article in Time magazine titled "Why I Would Vote No On Pot," wrote for CNN.

"I didn't look hard enough, until now," Gupta wrote, reports Liz Raftery of TV Guide. "I didn't look far enough ... I was too dismissive of the loud chorus of legitimate patients whose symptoms improved on cannabis."

The research for Gupta's upcoming documentary film, Weed, required that he speak to "medical leaders, experts, growers and patients." He now believes that "it doesn't have a high potential for abuse, and there are very legitimate medical applications.

"In fact, sometimes marijuana is the only thing that works," Dr. Gupta said.

Gupta pointed to research indicating that only 9 to 10 percent of adult marijuana users become dependent, as compared to 20 percent of cocaine users, 25 percent of heroin users and 30 percent of tobacco users.
