More Medicinal Cannabis Studies on Children with Autism

More Medicinal Cannabis Studies on Children with Autism

A medicinal cannabis study conducted in Israel was recently published in the well-known medical journal, Neurology, examining the overall effect of medical cannabis therapy on children diagnosed with autism. The results were staggering, showing up to 80% improvement when used in replacement of conventional drugs. A handful of Chemists, breeders, and growers have completely snowballed the expansion of CBD strains and medicines giving hope to the numerous families affected by autism. Though we see the results every day, we need more medicinal cannabis studies on children with autism so the world understands we can heal these children naturally.

Dr. Adi Aran of Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Hospital lead a 7 month study that treated 60 children with elevated CBD oils (20% CBD and 1% THC). After the study, parents were asked to characterize their child’s condition and answer questions based on changes they’ve seen in behavior, communication and anxiety levels. 80% of Parents reported a decrease in problematic behaviors and an increase in communication, with 62% reporting profound improvements. Although, one-third of the study participants began with no anxiety, still 40% reported significant decrease in anxious behavior and levels.

As Israel has spearheaded cannabis research, Aran has just as well pioneered cannabinoid therapy for Autism research. Beginning his project in 2017 and testing 120 children on the spectrum, Dr. Adi Aran launched the first study of its kind worldwide. This was made possible by the funding and progressive approach Israeli government has for Cannabis research. With word of these medicinal cannabis studies on children with autism getting out, a handful of smaller studies have been conducted in other countries leading to promising results and leaving us hopeful that doctors will continue to dive further into studies on the use of medical cannabis.

Dr. Raphael Mechoulam and CBDA:  The Heroes of CannMed 2019

Dr. Raphael Mechoulam and CBDA: The Heroes of CannMed 2019

Sometimes the universe aligns, and this was clearly so for 101CBD.org at CannMed 2019 in Pasadena last week.  The medical cannabis convention focused on Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, the “Godfather” of Cannabis who has spent 56 years researching cannabis plants and actually identified the CBD and THC molecules, their raw precursors CBDA and THCA,  and the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) of body receptors responsive to the range of cannabinoids. CBDA was the message at the convention with multiple health benefits and the need to provide researchers a stable CBDA molecule for further medical research in human health.

The focus on CBDA and health research totally aligns with our mission here at 101 CBD. Our hemp-based whole plant extract and products maintain a stable CBDA, currently testing at 75%+ of our cannabinoids. Putting that high percentage CBDA with the whole plant range of cannabinoids, terpenes, lipids, and flavonoids and a low .02 % THC level provides an organic powerhouse of ingredients to interact with the ECS and beyond.

We are currently seeking university research partners to document the range of benefits of this unique CBDA product, to explore the ideal administration methods and usage amounts, and the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.  We are also seeking laboratories to analyze CBDA blood serum levels.

We can not express the excitement of this CannMed Conference, the constant stream of professionals from a wide variety of areas exchanging information with our staff.  We are excited to follow up with anyone we met or anyone who had unanswered questions. Collaboration with all facets of the cannabis world are so important as the field moves forward.   The spirit of the 2019 CannMed Conference for us at 101CBD.org was best expressed by our “The Godfather of Cannabis” themed booth in honor of Dr. Mechoulam and the famous movie line: “Leave the CBD, Take the CBDA!”
