using medical cannabis as a treatment for autism

Wed 05 Nov 2014 1:26am
Topics:

So, I heard that medical cannabis can treat autism, since I have autism. I looked it up on google and got a trillion good results. I'm going to have a meeting with my doctor because it is a serious concern. The thing I want to know though is, what are usual effectrs of cannabs on autism?

I mean, does it tend to take effect quickly? Will I get naucious? If you could provide me with a list of possible common effects, positive or negative, I'll take it.

Thanks.

There was a documentary on BBC Radio 1 last night about spoken word poet's George the Poet's experience growing up with a brother with autism: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0524f4k
