Early results from a new study from the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel, suggests CBD may be effective for children with autism. In the study, researchers gave 120 children and young adults with mild to severe autism one of two cannabis oil formulas or placebo to see if CBD could benefit the condition. While it's still too early to make any definitive conclusions about the effects of CBD on autism, lead researcher and pediatric neurologist Adi Aran says some children have already become more communicative, stopped hurting themselves or throwing tantrums, and those who could return to class had fewer behavioral problems.
