    Charlotte's Web was developed in 2011 by the Stanley brothers (Joel, Jesse, Jon, Jordan, Jared and Josh) by crossbreeding a strain of marijuana with industrial hemp.

The variety shows potential for medical usage, especially for those who do not wish to experience the typical high of recreational marijuana use.
