CBD cured my anxiety and ADHD immediately without any cognitive detriment
I have been diagnosed with ADHD for almost 2 decades and left it untreated for most of this time. It has led to a domino effect of other issues, including anxiety and depression. I have a very professional career with a terminal degree and any thought about using a hemp derived product seemed to be career derailing. Throughout my life, I had been inundated with anti-drug and anti-marijuana hysteria staring with the D.A.R.E. program in the late 80's. Almost subconsciously I was adverse to trying anything hemp derived. Until this week.
This week I finally tried some CBD gummies from CreatingBetterDays. Within minutes, all of my ridiculous anxiousness was gone and I became immediately more focused and productive.
I feel like an idiot for avoiding this stuff (CBD or MJ) for so long, but its now blatantly obvious this was the answer. Adderall, SSRIs, norepinephrine reuptake inhibitos, etc all proved to not solve my issues and gave me terrible side effects.
I simply cannot fathom how effective this is. I recently tried adding a vitamin E complex (tocotrienols. not just tocopherol) and I am even more relaxed now.
CBD oil for ADHD: Can it treat symptoms, and is it safe?
Not diagnosed, however suspect ADD in myself and family. The difficulty focusing at critical times, possibly due to stress of a deadline, or just for longer lengths of time. The inability to calm the white noise as I refer to it. “Oh shiny, look over here.” It is a frustrating part of my makeup.
Still seeking a CBD strain that provides what some strains of THC can. Complicating the issue is I seem to have opposite effects from the average. It is a journey and I appreciate the share.
Well it can regulate dopamine which is a huge issue in people with ADHD, I have it ADHD and it helps me
I have ADHD (inattentive type/ADD). Hemp flower has been a godsend for me. I’m still not sure if it’s the CBD, low dose THC, or the terpenes, but something in there has completely changed my life for the better. My life on Adderall vs. my life now is like night and day.
How does the experience compare with your experience on adderall? I recently stopped adderall and am considering using cbd vapes to treat my adhd
While the body of research on the effect of cannabinoids in the brain is quite large, there are very few studies specifically on ADHD. The few that do exist show there is potential, but further research is necessary.
A review (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4882033/ ) of anecdotal evidence from 401 forum posts found that 25% of people thought psychoactive cannabis helped improve symptoms.
Often people with ADHD have lower levels of dopamine and norepinephrine.
Cannabinoids show the potential to regulate areas of the brain by preventing over-activation, which can reduce the ability to focus. Because these chemicals mimic naturally occurring cannabinoids, plant-based treatments may produce similar results.
The beneficial effects of cannabinoids are possible due to the ability of cannabinoids to inhibit monoamine oxidase (MAO), which helps metabolize dopamine and norepinephrine. Slowing the breakdown process of these neurotransmitters can lead to higher levels throughout the brain.
There’s a lot of ADHD and ADD in my family. I have ADD. While I initially began using CBD oil and CBD hemp flowers to treat pain, I quickly noticed an improvement in my focus and concentration. I don’t know if it’s due to the CBD or due to the reduction in pain allowing for better focus and concentration.
