Autism Disorder is a spectrum disorder with a range of issues from mild to pervasive imbalance. Autism affects several physiologies, including the neurological, immune, digestive, emotional and behavioral, and endocrine systems. Because of the spectrum, families must make lifelong adjustments, staying flexible based on need and how the child develops.

Autism has both genetic and environmental causes that intertwine to affect many systems in the child’s body.

An estimated 1 in 44 American children are diagnosed with autism, and it is about four times more likely to occur in boys than girls.

How Cannabis Can Help

Genetics and environmental issues play a pivotal role, but the exact cause is unknown. Anandamide deficiency may create imbalance at CB1 and erroneous signaling can lead to downstream effects that never get corrected. It is unclear how cannabinoids help, but CB1, CB2 activation as well as many other neurotransmitters and biomarkers are being studied.

n recent years, numerous pre-clinical and clinical trials have directly investigated the role of the endocannabinoid system in autism and pervasive developmental disorders. This research has shed light on the intricate connections, providing valuable insights into these conditions over the past decade. Data reveals that:

  •  Levels of endocannabinoids like anandamide (AEA) are lower in children with autism.
  • Modulating the monoaminergic and oxytocin systems through the endocannabinoid system may offer innovative treatment approaches.
  •  The endocannabinoid system’s influence on neuroinflammation, neurogenesis, and cognitive function (e.g., memory) suggests potential therapeutic benefits.
  • Cannabis-based therapeutics emerge as safe, effective options for alleviating symptoms associated with autism.
  • Oral CBD has shown promise in reducing various symptoms, enhancing the quality of life for both hyperactive patients and their caregivers.
