Marijuana (Sativex) spray to ease withdrawal (and autism!) in Australia

Two new stories out in Australia. This one, cannabis keeps you smart into middle age, and the ‘Cannabis Withdrawal Spray Trial‘ which replaces a high-THC smoked skunk dependence with a dependence on an oral mixture of two whole cannabis plants’ extracts in alcohol (plus preservatives) – offering a nicely balanced 2.7mg THC and 2.5mg CBD in every spray.

Here’s a paper by GW Pharma’s own R. Pertwee on the pharmacology of the three main phytocannabinoids.

If this is any decent size of trial there will be more than 100 people participating so with any luck one or two participants may have autism. If that’s you and you’ve found this post, please let us know how it went?

In the meantime, to CBIS to watch some skin cancer disappear over the next few days…

About cannabisforautism

An Ashtanga Yoga teacher, dedicated to improving the health and welfare of those involved in mental health issues, substance use or homelessness. I am also striving to put an end to the perception of the substance user as someone who makes incorrect choices. Striving for a world where there are no 'drug abusers' or 'addicts', just substance users with health concerns and sometimes financial and legal confounds. It is possible to use many substances and still remain happier and healthier than your peers. The notion that a substance user must become unhealthier as time goes by is false. I hope you enjoy reading my blog. It's about autism treatments and a few other odds and ends. Thank you and take care, Jules
