Medical Cannabis helps reduce behavioural problems.
Severe behaviour problems in intellectually disabled children can be extremely challenging. The normal medications used to treat Children have high risk side effects.
A small pilot study published in the British Pharmacological Society shows how effective Cannabinoid therapy can be with little side effects.
The parents of participants in the study reportedly said they would recommend the study to families with children with similar problems.
The issue for those in the UK is the study happened in Australia.
It should be noted that the researchers are looking at the effectiveness of Medical cannabis in children with developmental disorders such as autism and Tourette syndrome.
