how does cannabis help autism?
What medicine, besides cannabis, has the potential to safely treat underlying medical conditions as well as behavioral symptoms?
Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are a set of complex neuro- developmental disorders defined behaviorally by impaired social interaction, delayed and disordered language, repetitive or stereotypic behavior, and a restricted range of interests. Many individuals with ASDs have symptoms of associated medical conditions, including seizures, sleep problems, metabolic conditions, and gastro- intestinal (GI) disorders, which have significant health, developmental, social, and educational impacts. How can medical cannabis help a complex problem like autism? The key seems to be our Endocannabinoid System - the master regulatory system in our body.
