Military Funds Research of Cannabis-based Autism Treatment for Kids

Study: The trial aims to study the effectiveness of cannabidivarin (CBDV) on irritability and repetitive behaviors in children with ASD. 

Raising a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can be an overwhelming experience for parents and have far-reaching effects on the entire family. According to CDC estimates, one in every 68 children has ASD and many exhibit aggressive, self-injurious and repetitive behaviors.

The hope is that CBDV can be an effective treatment for these behaviors without the significant side effects present in current treatments, according to Hollander.

“The remarkable thing to me about this study is, not that it only involves CBDV, but that it is being sponsored by the US Department of Defence. Clearly, we have progressed.”
