In the United States, CBD (cannabidiol) is closely investigated for its therapeutic effects. Indeed, a study of the use of e-liquid with CBD for autism cases could well see the light of day shortly.
A Utah foundation recently donated a record $ 4,7 million to a University of California to fund a study of the use of e-liquids in CBD for the treatment of severe autism among children.
Supported by a mainstream philanthropic foundation, the study could provide physicians with additional scientific evidence to encourage a recommendation of medical marijuana.
according to The San Diego Union-Tribune the gift of 4,7 million dollars from the Ray Foundation et Tye Noorda is the largest private donation for medical cannabis research in the United States.
The study will be conducted at the Cannabis Medical Research Center at the University of California at San Diego, where scientists will focus on severe autism spectrum disorders, or ASDs, that affect about one child on 68, particularly boys. . This will examine whether CBD can improve brain connectivity or alter the neurotransmitters and biomarkers of neuroinflammation, both associated with autism.
The president of the American Society for Autism, Scott Badesch, states that there are parents who " swear that it is effective even if it must be the subject of scientific research".
