The Stanley brothers on the progress and potential of the CBD industry

"As our industry catches up with science, we're really going to start to see the true benefits of this as an industry, both economically and from a societal impact as it helps people," says Charlotte's Web co-founder and Vice President Jesse Stanley.

The Stanley brothers of Colorado helped put the health benefits of CBD on the public's radar back in 2013, when their hemp extract that was high in CBD content and extremely low in THC content, now known as Charlotte's Web, made headlines because of its apparent effectiveness in helping some children with debilitating seizure disorders. 

We caught up with three of the brothers at the CBD Summit at Natural Products Expo West to hear their thoughts about what's happened since then, and the potential benefits of the burgeoning CBD category for the health of people and the economy.
