We have watched medical cannabis make its way into our everyday lives, but for good reason! What once was thought of as the worst of worst, has quickly become an amazing asset in our lives. Since the legalization in states, researchers have uncovered numerous benefits from medical cannabis. We have watched as a non-verbal autistic child begin speaking not to long ago, after using CBD Oil. The research speaks for itself! Check out this research stating the improvement with a high CBD oil.
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) witnessed improvement in symptoms and less reliance on other medications after treatment with Tikun Olam’s Avidekel™ medical cannabis.
A two-year study followed 188 children, with an average age of 13, diagnosed with ASD, notes a statement from reports Tikun Olam, whose products have been used to treat patients for symptoms of medical conditions, including cancer, PTSD, AIDS, epilepsy, Crohn’s Disease/colitis, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, chronic pain and neuropathy.
The patients were treated with the company’s high-CBD, low-THC medical cannabis strains, which have been specifically cultivated, the statement adds.
The company reports that, at the study’s outset, the most common patient symptoms were restlessness (90.4 percent), rage attacks (79.8 percent) and agitation (78.7 percent). After six months of daily cannabis treatment at company clinics in Israel, “80.1 percent of patients reported improvement of their symptoms, with 30.1 percent reporting ‘significant’ improvement, the statement claims.
“The data shows that autism patients can improve their overall quality of life utilizing a high-CBD strain, and most importantly, that young users can safely and effectively benefit from medical cannabis,” suggests Dr. Annabelle Manalo, Ph.D., science director at Tikun Olam.
