treating autism symptoms with cannabis

(topic stolen from another site)

I'm not endorsing this method, just thought it was an interesting article. It sounds like the focus is on children whose autism is so severe it causes seizures.

Weed makes me paranoid but it used to just make me extremely chill. Alcohol has been my go to choice.

i got talked into trying this by some friends. so i purchased some 5% CBD cannabis oil, which is now available commercially in the UK. the only meaningful think i can say about this is that it really does taste like weeds. it's not entirely disgusting but it's very acrid and has a rather lingering taste too. i really haven't given it much of a go. something in the back of my mind just says 'no'. of myself i don't think i'd have bought it. certainly, from what i've read, cannabis is a complex subject. like so many drugs it's a very mixed bag. possibly what puts me off most is the nagging suspicion that you're opening yourself up to an unpredictable influence. the affect on developing brains is quite alarming. and autistic people often have atypical responses to drugs too. at the moment i just can see a clear enough reward to merit any risk.

I wish it was available in my country. Though some of my friends use it too yet i'm scared to try.
