Calvin’s qualifying condition is pain. He has femoral retroversion in his hips and neck. He also has autism and major Self Injurious Behavior.
Today is day 22 on cannabis. We’re using edibles until Realm Of Caring gets some meds for him. He is doing awesome. His behaviors are just about non-existent.
He’s 14 and was considered non-verbal. Since using cannabis, he is verbally using words and using the augmentative app on his iPad more.
Typically, he had 20 head beating episodes per day. He has only had one episode since using cannabis. I hope the CBD works as well as the THC! All of his therapists are so happy that he’s doing so well! His PT stopped taping his legs because the cannabis has worked so well for pain and inflammation. I could go on & on. So happy.
I cried everyday for the first week of him using cannabis. We no longer had to pull over and restrain him on our way to therapy. He was beating his head and biting himself constantly. He had a huge knot on his head from beating and at one point, the knot split. It was horrible. His quality of life was horrible. Cannabis has given him a second chance in life. I am so thankful. It only gets better from here.
