Autism is an extensive developmental disorder that is expressed in almost all dimensions of the child’s development.

Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) makes social interaction and communication difficult, and is marked by restricted and repetitive behavior. The range and severity of symptoms can vary widely and include difficulty with communication and social interactions, obsessive interests, and repetitive behaviors. Numerous studies have shown cannabis can relieve some of the symptoms suffered by many autistic people, including seizures, restlessness, and rage attacks.

Doctors have also begun to recommend CBD for children for Tourette syndrome, epilepsy, dystonia, and seizures.
