A young brain is in a process of continual development. Stimuli from the environment cause continuous neuronal connections and modifications. Neurodevelopmental disorders disrupt the typical development and function of the central nervous system.
Developmental brain dysfunctions are often very disabling. They may manifest as neuropsychiatric problems or lead to impaired motor function, learning, language and other forms of non-verbal communication. The deficit that results depends on the extent of the damage and the phase in which it occurs – pregnancy, perinatal period, infancy or early childhood years.
Neurorehabilitation and symptom management are often very challenging. Cannabis may help due to its ability to interact with the endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoids are able to cross the blood-brain barrier and affect CB1 and CB2 receptors in the central nervous system.

THC products are psychoactive, causing one to become “high”. These are to be used with special caution in children, pets and persons prone to anxiety or stress. Depending on the unique situation, it may be appropriate to substitute THC with non-psychoactive THCA. CBN and 1:1 oils may also cause mild psychoactive effects.
However, if products are used correctly, it may be possible to avoid the psychoactive effect entirely. Should you feel uncomfortable or have any questions at any time, our trained team of staff are on standby to attend to your concerns.
