In another edition of Medical Monday, we’re looking at how medical marijuana can help those with Autism.

What is autism?
Autism is a mental condition, set on in early childhood, that includes symptoms like difficulty communicating, using language and abstract concepts or forming relationships.

How can medical marijuana help?
Currently, there is no research on cannabis and autism. However, there are very promising anecdotal accounts that show very encouraging results and experts say, should not be ignored.

“It’s incredible to see a child go from being non-communicative to achieving a significant improvement in quality of life—for both the child and his family.” [Leafly]3.
