    My BF's son is severely autistic and yesterday had 2 seizures. He's also non verbal too. My BF, as expected is a basketcase when it comes to him, he's 9 and a really sweet kid, he's like a big 2 year old. He is now researching medical marijuana for him, which freaks me out a little. Does anyone know anything about it? I know I'm taking a shot in the dark asking here, but after reading a few threads about people with different ailments here, I thought it's worth a shot to see if anyone is experienced in medical marijuana and pot.

    yeah, i don't know much about it, but something like they remove the THC and it has a lot of CBD (canabinoids (sp?) which are the therapeutic parts of the weed.

    I don't have him. He does. I guess you've got to meet him. He's the sweetest little boy in the world.

    That's correct. It isn't removed, but there are strains that are very very low in THC (the "buzz or high"--the Israelis even claim to have a strain completely without THC) and high in CBD (the non-buzz/high neurological part). The latter apparently has anti-psychotic, anti-anxiety properties that are being studied in their own right. I say "apparently" as all cannabis is technically still a Schedule I drug; so studies are just starting.

    Is he autistic or does he have epilepsy. They are two very different things.

    All I ever smoke. High THC, super sticky sweet and keeps you more alert than the old school stuff.

    He wants a high CBD strain. There's a strain out here, called "charlottes web," that has been receiving national attention.

    It was originally called "hippies disappointment," because it doesn't get you high.

    First thing is check with your state. I have been studying medical cannabis for about 5 years and belong to the american cannabis nurses association. i just met a mom last week that has 3 year old twins who were seizing like 75 times a day. now its down to 2 a month. I hope your state is a participant. This is certainly worth investigating. good luck.

    If it wasn't for pot, I'd never eat. I'm not kidding I'd never eat. Or sleep. Pot seems to be a gift from the gawds. I know several people that smoke it for seizure control or take edibles. The strains they have now are astounding.

    In all seriousness, you can find people who can ship stuff to you as well. I know someone, I'll call him "shigs,". Who has mailed candles made of wax to people suffering with cancer

    I'd be lying if I said I, personally, didn't abuse the system, with my mmj card.

    It does wonders, though. My uncle has MS...he is in pretty advanced stages, so it's a bit limited, but it has been his best medicine in three decades

    It's hard seeing him go through this. I know how much he loves that little guy. It's hard seeing him go through it too, even though he really doesn't know what he's going through himself. Thanks to all though. I figured some of you would have experience with it.
