Dozens of families are moving to Colorado in search of an oil made from a special strain of marijuana called Charlotte's web. They hope it will help children suffering from multiple seizures.

Growers say the oil contains "low" levels of the chemical THC, which gets users high.  But it's "full" of cannabidiols, CBDs, which are used to treat some medical conditions.

Some doctors says CBDs are promising, but say there's also evidence marijuana limits a child's thinking abilities,  and emotional development.
