Autism or ” Autism Spectrum Disorder ” is not an intellectual disability, it is a neuro-developmental disorder that interferes with both sensory and motor skills. The person with autism may have problems with communication, social interactions, and may have limited interests and stereotyped behaviors. In other words, those with autism have a brain that works differently.

What’s all the talk about using CBD to treat symptoms of autism?

CBD for autism can help ease the symptoms associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Consult a physician: the benefits are exaggerated in many places, so be sceptical.

CBD oil offers benefits including the following, although much of the what is known is more anecdotal than science.

  • Eliminate seizures
  • Decrease the severity of social anxiety symptoms
  • Alleviate addictive behavior in stimulating activities such as video games or television
  • Stabilize mood swings and decrease irritability
  • Help with relaxation and sleep
  • Cautionary note about the use of CBD extracts for autism: It is important to note that almost all the benefits of the cannabis plant to autism are given by extracts with high levels of CBD and low levels of THC.

Many medical studies are currently in progress, but it will take time to better understand the potential of the substance.

In fact, THC probably aggravates the symptoms.

Therefore, it is essential that only hemp extract containing less than 0.2% THC be used for this autism.

Autism is not an isolated disease, but a group of related neurological disorders.

All forms of autism are manifested at least by a certain cognitive deficit. This often affects communication skills and the ability to function normally in school, at work or in other areas of life.

Autistics tend to be much better hearing and visual learners and they have an excellent memory.

Of course, in the spectrum of autism disorders, this is not always the case.
