Autism Awareness Month

April is a month full of health awareness: Autism, IBS, Parkinson’s, World Health, and much more. However RoC is choosing to focus on autism as it is the second highest diagnosis in our pediatric client population, and autism prevalence is estimated at 1:45 in the US. Chances are high that you know and interact daily with someone on the spectrum, some more severe than others. And with cannabinoid therapy becoming a more accepted alternative, RoC’s client resources may provide a better quality of life for these individuals and their loved ones.

During our last fundraising campaign, #RaisetheRealm, we highlighted ten client stories in ten days to show the efficacy of cannabis therapy for certain conditions. Day eight was Baby Luke, diagnosed with profound non-verbal autism. His story made headline news across the world, especially in his home country -- Ireland, where one of the Stanley brothers, Jesse, visited to discuss the positive effects of low-THC cannabis therapy for conditions like autism and epilepsy.

When asked about the potential for Ireland to financially profit from legalization, Jesse’s response was, “There was money to be made”, but the ultimate goal is to educate people and let them know there’s a safe option for medical treatment with cannabis.” Read the full article here.

Education is a large part of our mission and we have research and resources available to anyone who registers on our site.

Wondering how cannabis therapy can help with autism or ASD? It all starts with a phone call or email to the Realm of Caring.
