Children and Cannabis

Treating children with cannabis is a controversial topic, but when expectations for pharmaceutical drugs fall short, cannabis may be a viable option. Outside of New Jersey, children who receive medical cannabis treatment often suffer from epilepsy, pediatric cancer, autism or other conditions such as motor disorders or cystic fibrosis. Medical cannabis is typically used as a last line of defense for children when battling these conditions, which are mostly treated with pharmaceuticals that carry a number of unwanted side effects. While cannabis use is unconventional, side effects of medical cannabis are typically less harmful than those of other pharmaceuticals. When using medical cannabis, children typically don’t administer medicine through inhalation. Preferred methods of administration are oral application or ingestion. These methods can be achieved with each of CSATC’s extracted products, as they are made from food-grade products.
