Autism is a neurological disorder that is characterised by communication difficulties, routine behaviour, learning problems, and social interaction problems.
Just as there is no known cause for autism or autism spectrum disorder, there is also no known cure for it either.
However, there is an increasing body of alternative or unconventional therapies that have been shown to be effective in treating the symptoms of autism, which are many.
The latest and so far the most controversial addition to this body of therapies is Hemp Oil or CBD Oil, an extract from marijuana and hemp plants. Another common name which you are likely to come across is cannabidiol.
