Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is described by specialists as a brain disorder marked by a continuous pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development. Although the exact causes of ADHD are unknown, it may be influenced by a combination of genetic and environmental risk factors. The good thing is that over time, clinical and scientific research has realized that cannabis and its components can be a great alternative to treat its symptoms, making people (especially children and young people) can lead a much more normal daily life.

Several studies have been conducted administering cannabidiol (CBD) in children, to evaluate how it acts in cases of disorders such as autism and ADHD, as well as in some cases of childhood epilepsy, and the results have been very promising. In addition, the fact that it is not psychotropic and does not cause addiction makes CBD a good natural alternative for the treatment of these and other childhood pathologies.

Some research has suggested that the endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays an important role in the treatment of ADHD. Remember that this system is in charge of regulating and keeping in balance the body’s processes in a healthy way.

The effect CBD has on ECS has shown that the levels of hyperactivity and inattention decreased. In addition, another part showed that impulsivity and misbehaviors improved, thanks to the anxiolytic effects of CBD.
And best of all, with no negative cognitive side effects.

ADHD is a condition that does not have a specific cure and if it is not treated from the time it is diagnosed, it can become more complicated and cause greater difficulties for the patient within his or her environment. Among the alternative treatments that can be found for this disorder, CBD has proven to be of great help in mitigating the symptoms.

There are several case reports from patients, doctors, and clinics reporting that medical cannabis improves the ability to concentrate in people with ADHD. It also has positive effects on problems such as insomnia, depression, and impulsive behavior.
