CBD Oil and Autism
CBD oil and hemp-derived cannabinoids may be perfect for treatment of the overwhelming symptoms associated with autism.
Autism is a complex neurobehavioral disorder that includes impairments in social language and communication skills and is frequently complicated by rigid, repetitive behaviors. While the disorder has a large variety of symptoms and levels of impairment the severity on a normal life may range from minor limitations to overwhelming disabilities that may require institutional care.
The current estimation is that three to six out of every 1000 children in the United States has autism, approximately three quarters of them are boys, and the number of cases appears to be rising. While this may appear to be a low percentage of cases in the general population, for those families dealing with the autistic child there is no bigger challenge.
The use of Cannabidiol (CBD) in the treatment of the hypersensitivity to physical sensations, noises, smells and the hyperactivity associated with the disorder, although not formally tested, have shown promising results.
