There are a wide range of symptoms associated with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. One common issue is social anxiety and I don’t know if that is the symptom to which you are referring. If so, drops of high CBD tinctures under the tongue allow for slower absorption and extends it’s effectiveness to 5- 8 hours. Commonly available varieties include Cannatonic, Charlotte’s Web, ACDC, Harlequin, and MediHaze are usually effective in reducing anxiety. CBD can be energizing at low doses and is not generally recommended for insomnia. However, if your insomnia is anxiety-driven, you may find it easier to fall asleep once it’s treated. If not, you might need to use a different type of cannabis for sleep – typically an indica with THC, like Granddaddy Purple or Critical Kush shortens the time needed to fall asleep and promotes uninterrupted, restorative sleep. Again, using drops of tincture under the tongue gives longer lasting effects.
