Autism also known as Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD is a developmental disability that causes the patient great difficulty both as a child and as an adult with social interaction communication and behavior. Many patients with autism have additional medical conditions which coincide such as seizures sleep disturbances and gastrointestinal complaints. According to statistics from 2014 released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention 1.5 of the children in the U.S. are diagnosed with Autism spectrum disorder affecting one in 68 American children. Spectrum refers to the wide range of signs and symptoms associated with ASD. Some autistic patients experience a whole range of symptoms and severity whereas some do not suffer extreme symptoms. ASD patients are typically classed with regards to how well they function in their world. As an example patients that have rather high levels of 1/5

intelligence and for the most part have normal speech would be considered high functioning whereas a child who doesn’t speak at all – would be considered a low functioning ASD patient. You can likely comprehend the large difference between zero verbal communication to the ability to communicate effectively. Therefore Autism can not be treated by any one drug or any one technique due to the fact that each and every patient will need something specifically tailored to their set of symptoms. Causes of Autism It is commonly believed that Autism is most often genetically passed on. The chances of a child being born with Autism increases when one or both parents are of an older age. Chances may also increase when a pregnant mother is exposed to toxins drinks or smokes during pregnancy. It may also caused by abnormalities in the brain area that interprets sensory input. Symptoms of Autism Symptoms associated with Autism are often seen very early in a child’s development and may include any of the items on this list of autistic traits typically found in the ASD patient: For children: Difficulty developing non-verbal communication skills body language and facial expressions No interest in sharing or enjoying the company of another Difficulty establishing friendships with kids of similar age Delayed speech – 40 patients never speak No empathy. Difficulty understanding what another is feeling e.g. pain or sorrow Inability to continue a conversation with someone Difficulty initiating a conversation with someone Difficulty understanding what their listener has perceived from the conversation Repetition of certain words Learning difficulties Heightened sensory sensitivity For adults: Learning difficulties Rigid routine to keep life in balance Exhibits unusual behavior Unusually intense focused interests Heightened sensitivity to sounds / sensory sensitivity Hand flapping / Spinning Obsessive Compulsive Repetitive use of objects Unusual sensory interest 2/5

Other than a long list of medications for the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder there are also a number of alternative treatments and therapies available to the autistic patient including: Early intervention Cognitive behavior therapy Behavioral management Joint attention therapy Educational strategies Occupational Nutritional Physical therapy Parent-mediated Speech-language therapy Social skills training CBD oil may help regulate emotional states and focus. It is also known to be a neuroprotective agent that could work against brain degradation. CBD may also be an effective treatment in mood regulation decreasing anxiety rage and hostility that occurs in Autism patients. Although not formally tested promising results have shown the use of Cannabidiol CBD in the treatment of the hypersensitivity to physical sensations noises smells and the hyperactivity associated with the disorder. Researchers have also found what they believe to be a potential link between autism and cannabinoid receptors particularly cannabinoid CB2 receptors within the endocannabinoid system. These findings regarding the CB2 receptors support the theory that autism could be caused by a disruption of the brain’s ability to send clear signals. This in turn raises the possibility that using cannabinoids found in cannabis can restore communication to allow for proper cell function and communication While further research needs to be done involving the treatment of autism with CBD there is anecdotal evidence that says CBD oil for Autism may present an effective treatment option.
