CBD for Autism

CBD for Autism

Having a special needs child presents many challenges, as our CEO, Charles DeFrancesco, knows firsthand. Charlie has spent years going to the best alternative practitioners and using supplements, diet, OT, PT and physical fitness to help with language, sensory issues and behavior.

Up until he was five years old, Charlie’s son, Antonio, was taking a vitamin cocktail that seemed to help his behaviors. However, at that time, Antonio started having an increase in anxiety and hyperactivity, which started to impact both his sleep and his health. After months of testing and trying out different vitamins and supplements, the family was forced to try medication. Antonio started Risperidone, and after a few weeks he was doing fantastic and he was in his usually happy place. However, Charlie did not want his son on a medication long term, and he started researching how to duplicate the effects holistically.

By using a low dose full spectrum CBD, Antonio was able to wean off the Respiridone. The results of CBD were life changing. Not only did it keep him calm, but it also it triggered an avalanche of language. He has new words almost daily, and his receptive language improved drastically.

The issue was finding a reputable CBD that was organic, full spectrum, and free of toxins, which is not as easy as it sounds. We found Aspen Green, which is just one of a handful of USDA Certified Organic Hemp and CBD companies. It is grown and harvested in Colorado, and each and every certificate of analysis is tested by a 3rd party, which is accessible to everyone via the QR on each box and label. Aspen Green also has 8 different lab tests for heavy metal, pesticides, yeast, mold, salmonella, E. Coli, bacteria, terpines and phytocannabinoid counts. Further, Aspen Green has partnered with the Realm of Caring Foundation, who can answer questions about CBD and drug interactions and the research surrounding CBD.

Research on CBD shows many benefits, not just for autism. There is research showing the benefits of CBD for acne, addiction, asthma, cardiovascular diease, inflammation, cancer, gut health, diabetes, anxiety, migraines, MD, pain, Parkinsons, and reproductive issues.

We highly recommend a CBD oil, and we believe that Aspen Green offers a product you can trust with resources to back it up. As a result, we have become a wholesaler for Aspen Green.
