Our global connection to cannabis as a viable treatment option for persons on the spectrum

Every morning, I start my day with a cup of coffee as I sort my emails from healthcare professionals ,social workers, attorneys, and families in need according to time zones…so basically, I wake up between 4 to 9 hours behind by default of living in California.

Every morning, I start my day with a cup of coffee as I sort my emails from healthcare professionals ,social workers, attorneys, and families in need according to time zones…so basically, I wake up between 4 to 9 hours behind by default of living in California. When you are a family in need of answers, time becomes the ultimate waiting game. So, I became the parent I needed when I had to make this same choice for my child on the autism spectrum 11 years ago when he was 9 years old. The 6th sense I have made my “superpower” is “hearing” my emails, in the same tone I had when a community of cannabis pioneers answered my calls and gave me more time with my son.

Every day I pay it forward honoring my son Joey’s legacy, as I open my emails the global journey begins…

Today my morning starts in Spain,

Hola Hester, recibe un saludo afectuoso y mucha admiración por los resultados que has logrado con tus hijos. Yo tengo un sobrino de 12 años autista que se llama Mario, él es muy agresivo con su madre y la hermana, las agrede constantemente.

La familia está desesperada y se les fue de las manos. El niño este super medicado pero no hay progreso, al contrario retrocedió más.
no habla bien, no mantiene la mirada, mueve los brazos, se orina en la cama de noche, es grosero, rompe todo si no le dan lo que quiere. Ya ha mandado un par de veces a la madre al hospital por los golpes que le ha dado.

Nos podrías ayudar y recomendar, que tratamiento hacer con la marihuana, o si conoces algun especialista en España? te lo agradecemos desde nuestro corazón. Familia de España posdata: estoy usando traductor de Google.
gracias….

Hello Hester, warm greetings and much admiration for the results you have achieved with your children. I have a 12-year-old autistic nephew named Mario, he is very aggressive towards his mother and sister, he constantly attacks them.

The family is desperate, and it got out of hand. The child is super medicated but there is no progress, on the contrary he regressed more. He does not speak well, does not hold his gaze, moves his arms, urinates in bed at night, is rude, breaks everything if they do not give him what he wants.

He has already sent the mother to the hospital a couple of times because of the blows he has given her. Could you help us and recommend what treatment to do with marijuana, or if you know any specialist in Spain? We thank you from our hearts. Family from Spain.
