Charlotte's Web oil

I didn’t know there was a variety without thc. I thought the thc was the medicine.

Honestly, I’d try anything before my kiddo on pharmaceuticals.

This is my wheelhouse.

I am currently writing *the* book on CBD and pediatric neurology and neuropalliative care, I work closely with the Stanleys, am a member of the executive team that is pushing the federal bill, and work extensively on the laws in Minnesota.

There is much you have to know before going down the CBD path, whether or not the oil you plan to use contains THC (even in an “under 0.03% form, like Charlotte’s Web HO). There are legalities involved that matter. Namely the one that states that federally, CBD is still tied to Marijuana, and therefore *illegal*. If your state is non-recreational, it can put you in a world of hurt if you’re not willing to go underground and stay put. If your state is medical-legal and your child does not have one of the qualifying conditions, you may run up against the state laws and end up in a world of hurt there too. So. Do your homework. Realm of Caring has changed its labeling to be able to send the oil to families of seizure patients who needed it and to try to fly under the radar. They have also started to grow outside the country, which tosses in some new legal loopholes.

Cannabinoids are complex. They interact in complex ways. Medicinal cannabis (or medicinal hemp — the plant in question has been reclassified, in this case) *is* a pharmaceutical, and needs to be treated that way. It is also still federally illegal, and possibly still illegal in your state. Yes, they can can ship it, but the reasons for that are. nebulous. You can have it in your possession. Administering to a minor is a different matter. Travelling with it out of state lines? Illegal. Administering in schools? Federally illegal, even in fully legal states, even to fully certified patients. Flying with it? Illegal. Crossing state lines? Illegal. CPS involvement in a number of cases in states where there is no MMJ law? Plenty. CPS involvement in states where MMJ is legal but children weren’t on the appropriate registry? Yup.

This isn’t homeopathy. It’s complicated. It affects other medication a child is on. Most physicians have no idea how it works — hell, we don’t really know how it is processed, other than for its interaction with the CYP450 metabolic process. This means that if your child goes on other meds, including antibiotics, or pain meds, it can affect the dosing and the bioavailability.

CBD, the non-psychoactive component of cannabis that’s contained in CWHO, has been of great interest to many for seizure control (where it does better with some measure of THC). For children with autism, the anecdotal data we have so far seems to indicate that they do best with THC mixed into things. But there’s very little data yet. Even for seizures. It’s all anecdotal. Trials are barely getting off the ground.

Personally? I’d wait a while longer, unless you were facing a situation where a child had absolutely no other options, or until we know more.

Talk to the local doc, for sure, and get help from RoC. AZ is a hot mess. CWHO is considered industrial hemp (since its reclassification), taking it out from under MMJ. That said, the compound isolated and used is CBD. CBD is legally tied to cannabis, and it’s a schedule 1 substance. RoC is dodging that bullet by removing the labelling on CWHO and trying to fly CWHO as a nutritional supplement — a clever move — without any indication of the CBD mg/mL. This said, it’s still a CBD oil, and still contains 50mg of CBD per mL, with fluctuating (but under 0.03%) levels of THC. Legally, CBD is a schedule 1, controlled substance, treated on the same level as marijuana and heroin. I kid you not. It’s seriously batshit crazy and drives me up the wall.

My kiddo is on MMJ here, enrolled in the state’s program, for intractable epilepsy. Despite the fact that our state is legal, she can’t get meds in school, or in most hospitals. If she is hospitalized, I have to make sure it’s in a hospital that has an MMJ-friendly policy. They won’t store it or keep it themselves, nor will they administer it. They will put a safe that is bolted into the room for us, and we must administer it ourselves. We can because it’s legal in our state. This said, if we lived in section 8 housing, we wouldn’t be able to join the program (can’t have a schedule 1 substance in the house, etc.)

It’s a complex issue. Depending on what you are trying to treat, some pharmaceuticals may be a better bet than hemp oil or cannabis. If nothing else, your child will actually have better medical support and not experience any blackout periods if something happens and you need to travel somewhere, or set foot on federal property, or. (and so on).

Joshua’s story: How CBD oil helped bring my little boy back after autism diagnosis

Our beautiful boy Joshua was born on St Patricks Day 2015. He was a healthy baby and met all his milestones from birth. We did notice at times that he seemed strangely independent and wasn’t a cuddler even at night – he was more settled when we would put him down than holding or nursing him. He was a great eater and we began baby led weaning at six months and it was a huge success – by nine months he was eating practically anything. At 16 months he was a happy, giggly, chatty fun little boy learning new words every week.

At the time I was pregnant with our daughter Molly. When I was nine-weeks pregnant we discovered that Molly had a heart condition and would need open heart surgery after she was born. We also found out that there was a 70 percent chance of having down syndrome.

Fortunately, Molly was born healthy with down syndrome at 39 weeks and her heart condition was better than expected so they scheduled surgery for five months time. When we brought Molly home from the hospital when Joshua was around 18 months old we noticed he had become much quieter. He was talking less, his eye contact slowly crept away and he wanted absolutely nothing to do with Molly.

We put it down to jealousy of a new baby and didn’t over worry, but as time went on and I did more research we realised that he was actually regressing. Quickly he lost all his words, all his babble, all his eye contact, all his play and all his appetite for food.

We had lost our little boy to autism.

The more we lost the more autistic traits grew – he began to flap his arms and hands, have meltdowns at any new situation, going through shops was a nightmare – to the extent that we stopped going out, he began to eat only yellow food – chips, nuggets, waffles and minimal amounts. No fruit, no vegetables and not even chocolate would entice him – he lost weight rapidly and became pale and sullen.

He would bounce on his knees for hours on end screeching. He would scream at any time for absolutely no reason – sometimes even looking like he was hearing voices and he stopped responding when we called his name. After ruling out hearing problems we finally got the official diagnosis of non-verbal asd.

We accepted the diagnosis and committed to getting his therapies started as soon as possible.

He began occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech therapy. It was a weekly battle at any of these meetings but we persevered.

They set out goals and objectives to try to do over the following year. But his progress was slow. He had started in a fantastic mainstream creche who was very understanding and flexible as he fairly much did his own thing and didn’t mix with the other children.

One day while Molly was having a check-up at home by a nurse she could hear Joshua having a meltdown in the other room – she asked me about him and if he had autism. She told me about her nephew who also had autism and asked me had I heard about CBD or Cannabis Oil. She told me that her sister had had great success with her son using the oil. I was willing to try anything.

I had heard the name but knew nothing about it. I presumed when I heard the word cannabis that it was a hallucinogenic crazy drug that would make my son stoned so I decided to educate myself on it – She directed me to a Facebook group called The CBDs of Autism who were amazingly educated and helpful and I could read other parents’ journeys. I discovered that CBD Oil is a natural, safe, non-hallucinogenic, widely used and above all legal and available to buy in stores or online in Ireland.

After extensive research and speaking to my partner, I decided to give it a go and tried Charlottes Web Advanced.

On the first day, we gave him four drops of oil under the tongue and we must admit it tasted vile, but luckily it didn’t both Joshua. When I nervously went to collect him that evening I asked how his day was – to my shock they said fantastic he was in great form – and you'll never guess what – he ate potatoes and carrots.

In the following days, Joshua started to eat spaghetti bolognaise, egg, apple, raisins and so many other foods.

After weeks we noticed him babbling again and he was making more eye contact.

Even the creche, the physio and the occupational therapists had called me aside to know what the hell was going on – he was meeting goals set for six months time. They were shocked but encouraging when I told them.

After six months, he was kissing and cuddling his little sister Molly. He even helped give her a bottle and play with her.

He started to sleep again, he was relaxed and happy and his speech improved drastically.

He is a year on it now – he's amazing – is now making sentences and is in speech therapy to help with pronunciation. He goes to an asd unit in preschool and getting on great. He is totally interactive and even tries to make friends when we are at play barns or parties. He waves hello to strangers and waves goodbye to his friends. We can go to family occasions, to shops and to restaurants without too much stress. He eats practically everything and is a happy chatty boy again.

I’m not saying CBD oil gets rid of autism. It doesn’t. Joshua still has odd, bad days, but they’ve become rarer now.

Unfortunately Charlottes Web Advanced is no longer available in Ireland so I will be changing his oil to Myriams Hope 50 when it runs out as it seems to be having similar results. My advice to anyone inspired by Joshua's story is to educate yourself, to pace yourself, to understand you may not be as lucky to get success first go – to persevere – to find the oil that works best for your child.

But for me – I got my little boy back.
