Marijuana in any form is a very controversial subject no matter the age of the patient. In a recent study published on Jan. 25 by The Guardian Express, it has been found that in several cases marijuana has been found to relieve children of difficult social challenges they often experience with autism. The study was only done with consenting parents after one parent decided to treat their child using a THC tincture similar to those given to cancer patients after all other forms of medication and therapy didn't help their child with melt downs and alleviate the social awkwardness he felt.
The study found that there is not a lot needed to help children, and in some cases, all of their symptoms were completely alleviated and they were able to function and socialize as a normal child does. One parent even claimed that after a marijuana treatment was the first time that their child played with them as their other child who is not autistic.
Many researchers and studies have found that marijuana is helpful in curing all kinds of brain injuries, illnesses, and other physical issues such as nausea, and eating disorders, now, with news that autism symptoms can be relieved, it almost seems like a further look into the medicinal properties of THC and marijuana need to be done.
This new study finds that after a marijuana treatment, the THC works in firing up synapses that usually aren't working or aren't working properly. It makes a connection for these synapses that aren't working so that they will function again in what is considered a normal capacity. More research is still needed, but the fact that a study shows something significant is amazing.
Many parents and researchers are against the study and trials because they are concerned about lung function from smoking marijuana. There are several other ways that the THC can be administered such as in tincture, candy form, pills, and from smoking.
What do you think about these findings?
