ADHD is the abbreviation of Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder. It is a common neurodevelopmental disorder that affects children. Children who are diagnosed with ADHD show difficulty in paying attention. They may also have trouble controlling their impulsive behaviors.
The symptoms usually become noticeable at the end of the teenage years. Children with ADHD mostly have difficulties focusing and behaving according to the occasion. The symptoms often trouble the social life of the children. They may not be able to attend school or take part in any social events. A child with ADHD might be highly talkative, face difficulty in resisting temptation, make careless mistakes, etc.
Let us now discuss CBD oil and how it may help with ADHD.
CBD is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. Several cannabinoids including CBD are shown to have abilities to help with many diseases. Unlike THC, another cannabinoid in the hemp plant, CBD doesn’t make you high. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant and mixed with a carrier oil like hemp seed oil, olive oil, or grapeseed oil to prepare CBD oil.
CBD can help you to manage various symptoms associated with ADHD. CBD is known for its calming effects and it can reduce stress. These properties can help the child with ADHD to control his impulsive behavior, aggression, and mood-related problems. Moreover, CBD may support improving the concentration and memory of children with ADHD.
Some studies show that CBD is effective in reducing some symptoms of ADHD which include social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder. A study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that about 75% of children who were diagnosed with ADHD experienced slightly reduced symptoms after consuming CBD-based medication.
There are some possible side effects of using CBD oil which include nausea, digestive issues, drowsiness, appetite changes, etc. Most of these side effects were shown by people who took higher doses of CBD products. Research shows that CBD doses under 1500 mg per day are safe and tolerated by our body.
You should also understand that the research on the effectiveness of CBD on ADHD is still in its early stages. More studies are required to find the complete effect of CBD on the human body. In the future, we may see CBD-based ADHD medicines.
