CBD and autism

Neither CBD nor any other medication can suppress or cure the core symptoms of autism, which include difficulties with social communication, sensory dysfunction, and restricted, repetitive behaviors. However, CBD may help alleviate epilepsy in some autistic children and adults. A reduction in seizures can reduce stress and make social interactions easier.

A few large-scale studies have explored the impact of CBD on children with autism, but none have explored its impact on adults. One of the largest studies of its kind took place in Israel. It includes the following observation: "In 2014, the Ministry of Health began providing licenses for the treatment of children with epilepsy. After seeing the results of cannabis treatment on symptoms such as anxiety, aggression, panic, tantrums and self-harming behaviors, in children with epilepsy, parents of severely autistic children have turned to medical cannabis for relief. Studies are underway in clinics and research centers around the world.

Before trying CBD

Before considering using CBD oil, it is important to take the following steps:
  • Check with your child's doctor (or yours) to make sure there are no allergies or sensitivities that could cause a reaction to CBD.
  • Check with your child's doctor to see if the medical benefits of CBD oil match your child's symptoms.
  • Check that CBD is legal in your country of residence.
  • Research CBD sources to ensure the brand you use is reputable and properly licensed.
  • Take careful notes about your child's (or your own) behaviors and symptoms so you can make a useful comparison before and after using CBD.

Use of CBD

CBD comes in many forms and dosage levels, including gummies. It is important to keep medications and candy supplements out of reach of small children. Low doses are more easily tolerated than high doses. When you start using a new supplement, medication, or treatment, it is important to make sure your child's doctor is aware of this new treatment and has no concerns about your child's health. your child. Let everyone who works with your child know that you have started something new and ask them to look for and report any changes in behavior or skills. Take careful note of any changes you notice so you can easily review your records to determine how helpful the new treatment really is. Be alert for any troubling side effects. Be sure to report any side effects to a doctor or healthcare professional immediately.


Autistic children grow and learn every day, simply because they are maturing. Therefore, there is no simple way to determine whether a change in behavior or an increase in skills is due to a particular treatment or to ordinary maturation. This reality makes it very easy to notice a change in behavior and inaccurately attribute it to the newest treatment you tried. The best way to know if a particular treatment is truly effective is to be thorough in evaluating your child before and after its use.
