Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) is actually a form of autism, which means that the severity and impact depend on the individual.
It is common for people with Asperger’s to have a higher IQ, but also have difficulties with social skills and general communication. In addition, there is difficulty understanding others and picking up social and emotional cues.
Conventional treatment includes social and speech therapy, behavior analysis, and medication.
Remember that there is no FDA-approved drug to treat AS. Prescription medications have adverse side effects, including:
- metabolism abnormalities
- type 2 diabetes risk
- long-term neurological effects
- increased aggressiveness
- sleep disorders and
- weight gain.
For those diagnosed with Asperger’s, the brain’s hippocampus, cerebellum, and basal ganglia struggle to produce enough CB1 receptors that properly regulate emotional and motor skills. CB1 receptors also help stimulate proper brain growth and development.
CB2 receptors in the brain are responsible for creating monolithic cells that stimulate the immune system.
If the body does not produce enough CB2 receptors, the body cannot effectively fight infection or disease.
So how can CBD help?
CBD oil contains high levels of cannabinoids, which can supplement the natural levels of endocannabinoids in the body.
The cannabinoids found in cannabis actually bind to CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain, allowing the brain to complete transmissions and send signals appropriately.
When enough receptors are obtained, the brain will be able to better manage the emotional response, since CBD stimulates the hormonal levels of serotonin in the body.
CBD has analgesic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, and neuroprotective properties and can be used to alleviate the negative symptoms and accentuate the positive aspects of AS.
