Dr. Sanjay Gupta. The American neurosurgeon and medical journalist. At first, he was not on board with the idea of legalization or even the use of cannabis at all. As years went by Dr. Gupta started to research the plant on his own, later on releasing his own documentary on CNN called “Weed”.
We are more than proud of him for utilizing multiple ways of promoting the medical benefits of cannabis. Cannabis has helped change many lives across the world. One life in particular, was Charlotte Figi. A three year old having around 300 seizures per week. After several medications, Charlotte was finally given a strain of cannabis that is very high in CBD, causing her seizures to reduce to around 2 to 3 per month. What an incredible discovery.
After Dr. Gupta had heard about Charlotte, he wanted to meet with her mother. Following the meet up and hearing how cannabis has completely changed their lives, he began changed his views entirely and started to apologized for not looking hard or far enough. Gupta stated that he should of listened to patients that stated their symptoms to improve with the consumption of cannabis. Like many others, Dr. Gupta thought patients were just looking to get high, causing him to overlook it all.
He travelled around the world interviewing medical leaders, growers, experts and patients. To this day, Dr Gupta has released 4 documentaries related to cannabis. We thank him for showing the world what this incredible plant can do and we hope he continues to research/promote the positive benefits of cannabis.
