Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that appears within the first 3 years of a child’s life. Autism results in the child’s communication and social skills being most affected. We as a society still do not really know what causes Autism, but what we do know is that new autism diagnoses are on the rise.
Statistically males are three to four times more likely to develop and suffer from Autism. And doctors still don’t know why the number of new Autism cases has dramatically increased. But the scientific community is trying to link this phenomenon to the fact that we are learning and developing new diagnosis methods and that more individuals are being screened and diagnosed than was previously thought possible.
Typically we will see that the diagnosis for Autism will occur in the first 18 months of life as parents begin to notice that their child is struggling or not developing as quickly as his or her peers. The first indication is the verbal and non-verbal communication, and how the child socially engages with others.
Autism comes in a number of degrees of severity. Conventional medication for Autistic children is focused on treating the symptoms instead of dealing with the causes. Medication is usually prescribed to Autism sufferers to treat bouts of aggression, compulsions, anxiety, ADHD attention issues and more. Cannabis oil is seen as a very effective non-conventional treatment that will assist in treating all of the above with few or no adverse side effects – which are common when conventional medication is introduced.
Read this quote from a parent who used our cannabis oil on his Autistic son for the first time.
Michael had been having another horrible day before the dose. After 30 minutes we could see the Cannabis Oil start to take effect. Michael’s behaviour became relaxed and far less anxious than he had been at the time we gave him the Cannabis Oil. Michael started laughing for the first time in weeks. My wife and I were astonished with the effect. It was as if all the anxiety, rage and hostility that had been haunting him melted away. That afternoon and evening his behaviour was steady and calm. He started talking to us and interacting with us again. Michael was physically more relaxed and began initiating physical contact with the motivation being affection instead of aggression. It was amazing! He went to sleep that night with no problem and slept through the night.
