In 2009, what started as seven brothers’ mission to serve the community has turned into a health and wellness brand that has changed public perception, sparked research, and aided the lives of millions of people. The Stanley Brothers are one of the pioneers of CBD, and their work as industry leaders opened up the door to exploring the ever-growing health benefits of cannabis.
In this Respect My Region brand spotlight, we delve into the history of the company that started a CBD empire, the brands they’ve created, and talk about some of their new products.
The Patient That Started It All
At the start of the Stanley Brothers’ efforts to help the community, the team was introduced to Charlotte Figi. Just a child, Charlotte suffered from Dravet syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy that resulted in hundreds of seizures. Charlotte’s parents had reached the end of the line in medical options and turned towards the health benefits of CBD as a last hope. Luckily, the brothers had been experimenting with their hemp-based tincture in southern Colorado and worked with the family to help Charlotte.
What resulted was a life-changing story that would result in hundreds of medical refugees moving to Colorado for treatment and the start of one of the biggest CBD companies in the United States.
From Charlotte’s story came the foundation of the Stanley Brothers’ company: Charlotte’s Web. The brand was built around the flagship CBD extract that changed charlotte’s life. Today, the brand has a wide array of products including CBD edibles, capsules, topicals, and even dog treats. Moreover, the brand focuses on health and wellness items that focus on assisting with pain relief, sleep aid, relaxation, and overall recovery.
CBD extract changed the life of Charlotte by rendering her nearly seizure-free. Furthermore, all kinds of patients wrote to the brothers saying that Charlotte’s Web aided them in dealing with PTSD, Parkinson’s, lupus, and even opioid withdrawal.
While the healing properties of cannabis come mostly from CBD, there are many beneficial uses to using the whole plant. The Stanley Brothers’ brand ReCreate utilizes both the CBD and THC content in cannabis to create products that promote a sense of everyday well-being. “Designed not for a high, but for a higher function” is the brand’s motto.
The ReCreate menu features tinctures, chocolates, and gummies. The products support your body’s immune system and the endocannabinoid system. Additionally brand focuses on helping you maintain a focused mind, a sense of calm, and recovery.
