Any adults use the OIL, what’s does it do I get days were I’m very angery and can become unreasonable and some times scare my family. I also get a lot of anxiety and have trouble when I get obsessed with objects and spend days researching things and need help letting go of.
I'm about to start using cbd oil. I decided on it a few days ago so I haven't bought any yet. Mine is for the underlying anxiety, the obsessions etc, actually everything you wrote really. I've read a lot of good reviews but because we are all different, the proof is in the pudding. I say go for it and give it a good few months and observe the differences. I'm looking forward to getting started. I'm going to start with one drop under the tongue, morning and evening, to see how I get on and take it from there.

It has a placebo effect, which shouldn't be underestimated. It has uses in two rare forms of epilepsy, and also increases the effects of THC (active ingredient of cannabis), but there's no scientific evidence for a use in autism. The question does seem to come up frequently here though.
We’re would you get it from. And post and let me know how your getting on please
Autism is on America’s a proved list of conditions it’s used for? Strange

If you mean FDA-approved uses, then no, it isn't.
(There is no chemical or biological 'treatment' for being autistic, just as there's no chemical or biological treatment for being left-handed or gay.)
I'm going to get it from holland and Barrett and yes, I'll let you know how I get on with it
Cbd counteracts THC rather than increase the psychoactive effect of THC it decreases the effect i.e high THC low CBD cannabis is classed as skunk. CBD has anti anxiety, anti psychotic, anti inflammatory effects. the two compounds do work together creating a synergistic effect to treat certain illnesses
I have used this plant for over 15 years and I know full well if you are to high from to much THC and you take some Cbd you will be sober and clear headed within the hour.
Apologies, going to repost a comment I made to another thread but I hope it’s also relevant:
I think contributors have strong views on this issue and this is a area which has gained much attention in recent times. NICE have limited any pharmacological interventions for Autism unless it is to address Challenging Behaviour. In these circumstances, Atypcial Antipsychotics under supervision are recommended when other interventions fail. Antipsychotics come with a number of undesirable side effects which make sustaining this treatment problematic.
Depression and Anxeity is commonly co-morbid with Autism and to support these issues, a mixture of anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medications are prescribed. Again, these do have side effects and may not be useful for everyone. Autism specific support is patchy and many adults do not have access to Autism CBT or targeted, relevant mental health support.
I understand that the debate around Cannibis Oil is to do with the compound which is less harmful and more therapeutic. There have been prescribtions for chronic long term pain and recently in the news, for rare forms for epilepsy. It is envitable that this will feature as a possible licenced medicine at some point and it could benefit those on the spectrum in respect to anxiety and other issues. My caution is to ensure that relevant trails and ethics surrounds all medical interventions and we may need more information before this can be used more widely. I also think we need to address the poor support services across the nation for autism to ensure that the right solution is available to each person and pharmaceutical solutions are not the first and only option.
Never tried pure CBD. Would like to at some point. I only know from past experience that the plant it comes from made my later teen years a hell of a lot easier than the ones before them. If I could get it pure, ie, cut with nothing, I would probably try it. Unfortunately even the holland and barrett stuff seems to be cut with other things. Maybe someone will bring out a pure product one day.
the Holland and barret oil is only cut with sunflower there is a brand called 'koi cbd' the naturals range is supposed to be 100 percent pure its good quality and lab tested and approved to be pure and contain no chemicals or THC
