3 Mind-Blowing Cannabis Stories You Won’t Believe

Updated on July 20, 2020

The science is undeniable: Koi CBD oil has phenomenal medical potential. But just how effective could this age-old herb be; and are the miracle stories we see in the news as amazing as they’re made out to be.

In a one-word answer: yes. But in this post, we’re going to find out just what makes these miracle marijuana tales so ground-breaking. We’ll show you eight people who have found astonishing success through medical cannabis, going from a life full of debilitating ailments to a life free of pain.

1. Charlotte Figi

Charlotte Figi is the face of CBD, and maybe the face of modern medical cannabis in general. The six-year-old has had breath-taking results with CBD chocolate, which has treated her Dravet’s syndrome to the extent that no other treatment has been able to. Dravet’s is a rare form of epilepsy that left Charlotte suffering from an average of 300 grand mal seizures – some of them potentially life-threatening – per week.

This debilitating illness had left Charlotte’s parents desolate, and the girl herself with a low quality of life. However, getting in contact with a special cannabis cultivator in Colorado has helped to change Figi’s life forever. This grower was focussed on developing a special, non-psychoactive strain of cannabis potent in cannabidiol (CBD).

That strain brainchild would eventually become Charlotte’s Web, a high-CBD strain known worldwide, and a strain that is often used to make cannabis oil. Charlotte is on a regular treatment plan of high-CBD cannabis oil to prevent her seizures from coming back, but the medication is proving a long-term success. At worst, Charlotte experiences just a few seizures a month.

2. Peter Germain

Peter Germain is a cannabis advocate who used the herb to lose weight. Germain finds it difficult to control his blood sugar levels due to Type 2 diabetes, yet he loses 50 pounds through the help of cannabis. Peter substituted eight pills a day for Rick Simpson Oil. His blood sugar levels became better regulated in just six weeks, and Germain enjoyed much-improved overall health.

3. Rick Simpson

Rick Simpson is one of the most famous names in the medical cannabis world – he claims that his own life was saved thanks to cannabis and that the plant has done the same for many others. Simpson started to experiment with cannabis after being diagnosed with skin cancer, using a special process for manufacturing extra-potent cannabis oil from industrial hemp plants.

The result of Simpson’s tireless work was the ever-popular Rick Simpson Oil (RSO). After finding relief through cannabis in oil form, Simpson thought about whether the compounds could be just as effective if infused into a topical product, such as a CBD cream 1000mg.

He started to use cannabis cream to treat the cancer lesions that had formed on his face, and he says that it started to have a positive effect within just a few days. After removing the bandage that he used to apply the cream, he was left with healthy, fresh skin. Simpson took his remarkable story to the media. There’s no scientific evidence to support his anecdotal story, but that’s of no concern to Simpson, who is back living a life of good health.
