Charlotte’s Web CBD Oil Review (CW Hemp)

Company Overview

Charlotte’s Web (CW) is made by CW Hemp. CW Hemp was founded in 2011 by seven brothers – Joel, Jesse, Jon, Jordan, Jared, Josh, and Austin Stanley. The company is based in Denver, Colorado.

CW gained public attention when Charlotte Figi’s medical battle was revealed. Charlotte has Dravet Syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy. Her first seizures were at three months of age. By three years of age, her ability to walk, talk, and eat was gone. The Stanley brothers had been cultivating a crossbred strain of marijuana and industrial hemp. They referred to it as “Hippie’s Disappointment.” It was low in THC and high in CBD.

Charlotte’s parents reached out to the Stanley brothers for CBD oil after hearing it was successfully treating similar seizures in a three-year-old boy. CBD oil helped reduce her seizures from three hundred a day to two or three a month. Inspired by Charlotte’s improvement, the brothers changed the name of their hemp strain to Charlotte’s Web.

CW Hemp uses world-renowned hemp genetics that is grown on their own farms in Colorado. They make oils, capsules, cream, balm and pet products.

Customer Reviews

“Just received my bulk shipment couple days ago with the new label it is nice looking. but that shipping time now is not so great. have been ordering for more than a year with no issues hurry fix the shipping time please.” – D Ayers

“This stuff is AMAZING!! I give it to my 14 and a half year old German Shepherd everyday! Prescription meds stopped working for her and we were ready to put her down over a year ago because she was just miserable. So as a last ditch effort I tried Charlotte’s Web oil. She’s active and playful and is doing GREAT! She’s already outlived most of the dogs of her breed by 2-3 years and I have a feeling this product is going to give me even more time with her! Thank you so much for your amazing product…she wouldn’t still be with us without it.” – C Rae

“Our son has epilepsy and was having approximately thirty seizures a week. He has been seizure free since the day he started using it in October 2017. Our neurologist recommended Everyday Advanced. Our son is thriving now and completely seizure free.” – CJ

“Just bought Everyday advance upon the advice of a friend .. I have terribly bouts of fibromyalgia. They had no chocolate mint, but I thought ‘how bad can this be?’. Well, I can ‘take it’ if it’s a miracle worker, but this is the most rancid thing – not looking forward to Day 2. $150 regret.” –  Cheri

Conclusion

CW Hemp is a premium CBD manufacturer. They refer to Charlotte’s Web as “The World’s Most Trusted Hemp Extract.” The company is not just about the bottom line. They created a non-profit organization called Realm of Caring. The organization provides support services, resources, and research to cannabinoid users.

There are few negatives to report about Charlotte’s Web. They mainly have to do with personal preference on taste and concerns about price. However, one issue keeps popping up – shipping. Multiple reviews show that customers are frustrated by the company’s shipping policy. They only use ground service and there is no expedited service. Packages take longer to arrive than with other similar companies.
