Responding to growing interest about CBD from families across the United States, the Autism Society of America and Wholistic Research and Education Foundation have co-costed this educational webinar to discuss whether CBD indeed holds a therapeutic promise for autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. CBD, a non-psychoactive compound found in both hemp and marijuana, is reported to have numerous health benefits due to its anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety and neuro-protective properties. This webinar brings together renowned MDs and Researchers to explore just how medicinal cannabis therapies can alleviate symptoms in children with autism, and highlights the latest research-driven data driving a groundbreaking multi-disciplinary study on this highly topical issue at the University of California San Diego (UCSD).
