Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) is a common complaint that affects focus, self-control and other skills important in daily life. It is caused by differences in the development of brain structure and wiring. It often runs in families. Everyone has symptoms of ADHD at some time in their lives. But when a child is diagnosed with ADHD, they are experiencing symptoms in a more intense manner. This introduces challenges at school, at home and with peers.
Children who have ADHD have too little dopamine in their brains. This neurotransmitter regulates attention, memory and other important cognitive actions in the brain.
How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit ADHD?
Cannabinoids like CBD interact with receptors in the brain to help manage the dopamine. The child can therefore concentrate better and calm down a lot. This is far better than a drug like Ritalin which has terrible side effects. Anecdotal evidence is strong in the favour of cannabis oil to treat ADHD. The medical evidence is highlighting that CBD is definitely a viable natural treatment for children and adults that are suffering with ADHD.
Research is revealing that cannabinoids positively affect the region of the brain that is accountable for self-regulation of behaviour. This means the cannabis oil can control the hyperactivity. CBD is a calming cannabinoid which enhances sleep, appetite and stress-relief. These all contribute to calming the hyperactivity impulses that ADHD sufferers experience.
