Looking for help


Hi my son is 5 and has been diagnosed with nonverbal autism since he was three. He recently was diagnosed with ADHD a few months ago. He is 4 foot and 60 lb. Two years ago he had a massive seizure and went Code Blue 3 times. He is on seizure medication until January. He is a full fledge autism with flapping hands, high pitched screams, social awkwardness, and learning disabilities. He is probably the happiest boy you will ever meet. We went through a lot of ADHD medications and have had issues with rebounds. My mother has talked to me about the CBD oil and how many people seem to find relief for their children by using it. I for one always been against psychedelic drugs, but am looking to help my child. He is extremely hyper jumping and running and screaming all day. It makes it extremely hard for him to learn or stay in the classroom. I was wondering how the cdb oil pertains to Children such as him. I don't want him sleeping all day which is what his ADHD medications do now. I want him alert, but calm enough to learn. Have any of you had this kind of issue? How did it help your child?

I’m not 100% sure about CBD for autism. I know a lot of folks take it and give it to their kiddos.

CBD is not psychedelic. It is the part of hemp that does not get you high. THC is the chemical that gets you high. If you find a reputable source, you can get CBD oil or gummies etc...

My opinion, why not try it?

There are some people on here who have mentioned good sources to buy it... possibly try a search on this site for CBD oil and see what comes up.
