Girl who inspired Charlotte's Web marijuana oil dies

Obit Charlotte Figi
FILE - In this Feb. 7, 2014 photo, 7-year-old Charlotte Figi, whose parent describe her as once being severely and untreatably ill, walks around inside a greenhouse for a special strain of medical marijuana known as Charlotte's Web, which was named after Charlotte early in her treatment, at a grow location in a remote spot in the mountains west of Colorado Springs, Colo. Figi, the Colorado girl with a rare form of epilepsy whose recovery inspired the name of a medical marijuana oil that drew families to the state has died. The non-profit organization co-founded by her mother says Charlotte, now 13, Figi died Tuesday, April 7, 2020. It didn't say how she died. A post on her mother's Facebook page said she was recently hospitalized and a virus had infected her whole family. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley, File)
DENVER (AP) — A girl with a rare form of epilepsy whose recovery inspired the name of a medical marijuana oil that drew families of children with similar health problems to Colorado for treatment has died after being hospitalized and treated as a likely coronavirus patient, her mother said Wednesday. Charlotte Figi was 13.

Charlotte, who lived in Colorado Springs, died Tuesday after suffering a seizure that resulted in cardiac arrest and respiratory failure, her mother, Paige Figi, said in a statement. Charlotte tested negative for the coronavirus when she was initially admitted to a hospital on Friday but was still treated as a likely COVID-19 case when she was returned to the hospital Tuesday after the seizure because her whole family had been sick for a month with suspected coronavirus symptoms, Figi said.

Her death was first announced by the group co-founded by Paige Figi, Realm of Caring Foundation, to help other families who uprooted their lives for a chance to use cannabis to treat their children's seizures before marijuana became more widely legalized in the United States.

Charlotte’s case and the advocacy of her parents played a significant role in drawing attention to the potential that a drug derived from cannabis could be used to treat epilepsy.

“Some journeys are long and bland and others are short and poignant and meant to revolutionize the world. Such was the path chosen by this little girl with a catastrophic form of epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome,” the announcement said.

At age 5, Charlotte suffered as many as 300 grand mal seizures a week, used a wheelchair, went into repeated cardiac arrest and could barely speak.

With doctors out of ideas, Paige Figi began calling medical marijuana shops. Her symptoms largely disappeared after she began taking an oil created using a strain of marijuana with low THC, the drug's psychoactive compound, but high in the chemical CBD, created by Stanley Brothers, a marijuana business in Colorado. It later named it after her.

Federal prohibition of marijuana has limited research into marijuana and individual compounds' health effects, but Charlotte's family and hundreds of others shared their own experience using it for seizure disorders.

U.S. health regulators in 2018 approved the first prescription drug made with CBD to treat rare forms of epilepsy in young children.

In an online tribute, Stanley Brothers praised Charlotte as “a light that lit the world.”

“She grew, cultivated by a community, protected by love, demanding that the world witness her suffering so that they might find a solution,” it said.

For most, the coronavirus causes mild to moderate symptoms such as fever and cough. But for some older adults and the infirm, it can cause pneumonia and death. Over 300,000 people worldwide have recovered.

R.I.P Charlotte.

Sounds like Covid might have been the cause.

The attention she brought to CBD will ensure she is never forgotten, rest in peace..

Really sad to hear. COVID is indiscriminate attacking the most vulnerable, healthy or others.

Thanks to 60 Minutes (rarely watch anymore), Stanley bros and Charlotte herself, it overturned myths of cannabis having no medicinal value and created a whole new worldwide phenomenon of products/uses.

RIP, angels embracing her.

I urge every grower to dedicate and donate at least one CBD plant per grow. To a medical patient. Please for the sake of the patient. Grow organically in soil. If you need to flush your plants before harvest. You need to FLUSH those products.

You don't flush chemotherapy out of your body. You don't flush chemicals out of your plants. Please grow healthy and share your blessings with others.

Peace farmerlion
