Cannabis for Autism
Interview with Del Bigtree of Vaxxed on The HighWire
After 4 states have recognized autism to be a qualifying condition for their respective medical cannabis programs and 5 more states currently in the process of implementation, Del Bigtree at Highwire invited me to discuss the status quo.
Why is cannabis a Schedule One drug? Why are individual states allowing this anyways? Why even consider cannabis for autism? How can it help? All these questions and more will be addressed.
Vaccine Mechanisms in Autism
A vaccine’s contents are injected into the muscle. From there it elicits a specific response from the immune system. Additives called adjuvants are put in vaccines to make the immune system response more pronounced and therefore more effective. Certain adjuvants in vaccines are powerful activators of brain microglia. Heavy metals like aluminum keep microglia in the activated state longer and make it difficult to switch into the anti-inflammatory state.
The response to these vaccine adjuvants is that the microglia secrete cytokines, little molecules that recruit other inflammatory cells to help out clean the offending antigen. The brain inflammation in autism is aseptic, which means it is not caused by a true infection, but by continuously providing just enough adjuvants in vaccines to permanently keep microglia in the pro-inflammatory state.

Autism Spectrum Disorders can be a difficult condition to navigate. Through my personal experience and research I can help to guide you through setting a baseline and treatments specific to your child.
The integration of the endocannabinoid system into mainstream medicine is the future. I've found the benefits of cannabis can be helpful as a treatment adjuvant for a number of conditions and may be beneficial for you.
