Charlotte Figi, the Colorado girl who inspired the CBD movement,
dies following illness suspected to be COVID-19 (CoronaVirus)
By Vic Gerami
Charlotte Figi, the Colorado Springs girl who, as a gleeful and fragile child, launched a movement that led to sweeping changes in marijuana laws across the globe, has died from complications possibly related to COVID-19 (CoronaVirus) at the age of 13.
Charlotte’s death was announced by a family friend Tuesday night on the Facebook page of her mother, Paige Figi. “Charlotte is no longer suffering. She is seizure-free forever. Thank you so much for all of your love.” Charlotte’s story took on global significance, though, in 2013, when she appeared in a documentary by CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. The documentary showed Charlotte laughing and playing, her seizures quelled by CBD.
“Your work is done Charlotte, the world is changed, and you can now rest knowing that you leave the world a better place,” the Realm of Caring Foundation wrote on Instagram. Realm of Caring Foundation is an organization co-founded by Paige Figi.
CBD treated Charlotte’s seizures when pharmaceutical treatments proved ineffective. Medications prescribed by psychiatrists and other doctors can do wonders sometimes. But how about when they won’t work such as in Charlotte’s case? What if someone prefers an alternative solution like CBD? CBD has been successful in treating anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), insomnia, seizure, pain relief, acne, cancer, epilepsy and seems to be neuroprotective in general.
CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol, a compound that occurs naturally in both marijuana and hemp. It’s found in very high concentrations in certain strains of hemp and is widely regarded to possess great medicinal value.
It is not psychoactive, which means it won’t get you high, unlike the compound THC, which produces the mind-altering sensations found within marijuana. Because it doesn’t have psychoactive effects, CBD is legal almost everywhere, and any restriction depends on the legal status of cannabis in that state. If you are using CBD derived from industrial hemp, you do not need a prescription. It is available in different forms, including oils, pills, or topical creams.
I spoke to Daniel Sandoval, founder, and CEO of CBD 100% Relief, a leading CBD company based in Colorado. He was familiar with the Figi family and shared this, “I am saddened to hear about the death of Charlotte Figi. Her story served as a catalyst that helped bring light to our industry and inspired others around the world to try CBD as a natural alternative when all else fails. She is gone too soon but her legacy will live on. My condolences go out to the family.”
CBD 100% Relief is known for its top-notch products that are 100% organic and CBD distillate. CBD distillates are one of the most potent types of CBD concentrates that exist today. The company prides itself on its distillation process that produces the cleanest CBD concentrates, 100% pure on a molecular level. Meaning the whole hemp plant is kept in its purest form. On average, CBD distillate products can contain between 80-90% CBD derived from hemp and the remaining 10-20% consists of other cannabinoids, phytocannabinoids, terpenes, various plant extracts, and other oils. Most CBD companies use a process called Winterization to extract their CBD. That process can only produce CBD extracts up to 55-65% while washing out most other important medicinal compounds found in the hemp plant.
But CBD 100% Relief products are in a league of their own. Their highly concentrated CBD products are so effective, you can even use far less product than the suggested serving and get similar results. Pure CBD oil should have a clear, almost pale honey-like color. That is what we use and what you will get every time. Here at CBD 100% Relief, we believe in keeping it 100. Meaning, we strive to keep our products 100% unadulterated. Also, our products our 100% Non-GMO, 100% Made in the USA, 100% Lab Tested, and 100% Organic. Come and join the Relief Matters movement and Keep it 100 with CBD 100% Relief!
Charlotte’s death is very sad, yet her short 13 years on earth created a lasting change that benefits millions of people. Perhaps the Realm of Caring Foundation said it best, “Your work is done Charlotte, the world is changed, and you can now rest knowing that you leave the world a better place.” Realm of Caring Foundation is an organization co-founded by Paige Figi.
