California: Paige Figi of Coalition for Access Now to Participate at Cannabis World Congress

PaigeFigi[PRNewswire]

The Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition on Thursday announced that Paige Figi will be introducing keynote speaker Melissa Etheridge at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo), Thursday, September 17 at 2 p.m. at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Figi, a mother of three from Colorado, was desperate to find a treatment that would help her then 5-year-old Charlotte, who was diagnosed with Dravet syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy, live a better life. For years Figi tried numerous medications and treatments to reduce Charlotte’s seizures, some that lasted hours and required life support.

But none of the traditional pharmaceuticals and treatments were reliable or successful in reducing and helping Charlotte’s life-limiting condition. Looking for a final result, she researched alternative therapies, discovering a type of hemp oil that had no major side effects or psychotropic effects.

Figi started giving Charlotte a natural, therapeutic hemp oil with low THC and high CBD (cannabidiol), reducing her daughter’s epileptic symptoms and seizures from hundreds per week to less than three per month.

Finding the impact this type of therapeutic hemp had on Charlotte; the product now carries her name, Charlotte’s Web™ Oil. Figi co-founded the Realm of Caring 501c3 to assist families with similar disorders.
