Out of the closet…….

you don't know Jack

It has been over a year and a half since I have begun blogging about my adventures with Jackson.
Through it all I have received nothing but positive feedback and praise for this little boy whose life touches many.
My readers here and over at Jack’s Facebook page have come to love this little boy.
Jackson’s smile gives joy to people.  His love of fuzzballs, slinkys, and all things spinning is endearing.
His struggles with seizures and TSC is inspiring.
Jackson is, as always, living in the moment.

So now it is time to come out of the closet.
Jackson is part of a movement that many support, some fear, and others are on the fence about.

Jackson is a medical marijuana patient in the state of California.
He is so with the blessings/knowledge of his local pediatrician and his TSC clinic.
While some may have images of a an…

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

    William doing chores and not having a meltdown-For us, this is progression!

    Ok-We met with Tony Verzura and Carissa Mendes at RiverRock Wellness yesterday to update Williams situation. He began the ACT Now program using PRANA Sept 2014. Since that time, WIlliam is more focused, meltdowns-down 90% or more, intensity of those meltdowns-down 85%, That’s HUGE for a family where your child is or can be violent. Self Injury-down 90%, he is able to brush teeth without biting, do chores without hitting. He smiles all the time, is more engaged with others and now sleeps some days from 7-9 hours (on average he slept 3-4 hours max per night).
    NO MATTER what the critics say, this is not in our heads, this is not an “experimental med”, this is using cannabis for the medicinal purposes that affect behavior, pain and anxiety. We are not paid to make infomercials, we are not given compensation, simply want other families to know there is hope. If you have a family member afflicted with a debilitating condition, lupus, IBS, anxiety, depression, autism, ADHD, PDD, seizures, you need to access the website at United Cannabis and or Riverrock Wellness and educate yourself.
    For families like mine-This is not a miracle, simply good science by a team of good people who care about the world and what they can provide as a natural alternative to the nasty pharmaceuticals which have been the ONLY option for so many! Thank you Carissa and Tony and Josh and Dain Oyler and everyone at Riverrock for your care, compassion and most of all patience and consideration!

    • So glad to hear it’s going so well for you! Don’t worry about the doubters, they’re confusing statistical medicine with actual clinical practice.
      Cannabis is palliative for autism, not curative. The doubters always take the fallacy that we believe it’s curative. They ignore the part where we run out of cannabis and the autism comes back same as before, then the cannabis reduces it, ad-infinitum.
      Meltdown reduction is dramatic. It seems the more challenging the behaviour to begin with, the bigger the gains.
      I’d hazard a guess that I get about a 30% reduction in symptoms from cannabis, no more. There’s more. Yoga tea and tobacco all play an important role in keeping the asperger’s down to a manageable level.
