The administration of cannabis extracts is effective and well-tolerated in patients diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), according to data published in the Scientific Reports journal.

Israeli investigators assessed the safety and efficacy of the daily administration of CBD-enriched cannabis oil throughout a group of 188 patients with ASD. Of those patients, over 90 percent reported some level of symptomatic improvement, including reduction of restlessness, seizures and rage attacks. Additionally, one third of respondents reported a reduction in their intake of other medications.

Authors of the study concluded: “Cannabis as a treatment for autism spectrum disorders patients appears to be a well-tolerated, safe and seemingly effective option to relieve symptoms, mainly: seizures, tics, depression, restlessness and rage attacks … [We] believe that double blind-placebo controlled trials are crucial for a better understanding of the cannabis effect on ASD patients.”
