STUDY REVEALS CBD BETTER FOR TREATING ADHD THAN RITALIN
Oh wow I think I was just writing not 10 minutes ago about how I most probably have had ADHD my whole life and smoking weed has kept me normal and I never had to take some stupid prescription pills for the rest of my life stuffing the pockets of some uncaring zillionaire.
And what do you know this new study pops up in front of my eyes explaining my recent thoughts about the same topic.
And it seems I was right. Like always.
CBD works for ADHD better than any stupid pill. Unless that pill has CBD in it of course.
More and more and more studies will come out supporting this. And then they will have to listen.
I just remember as a kid being told what was good for me and what was bad for me and now all these years later it seems that so many of those things they said were good are not believed to be bad and vice versa. That is happening right now with cannabis.
Here are some lines from the article.
A small sample of 30 patients with ADHD took part in a study to demonstrate the ways in which cannabis treatments can affect their symptoms. These patients said they were having limited success with Ritalin and Adderall. After their cannabis treatment, all 30 patients reported a significant improvement in their concentration levels and their quality of sleep, and 22 of the 30 patients have stopped using ritalin/adderall since.
“Cannabis appears to treat ADD and ADHD by increasing the availability of dopamine,” said cannabinoidologist, Dr. David Bearman. “This then has the same effect but is a different mechanism of action than stimulants like Ritalin and dexedrine amphetamine, which act by binding to the dopamine and interfering with the metabolic breakdown of dopamine.”
If the key to higher concentration levels and better sleep is more dopamine then cannabis use can be combined with many other natural dopamine heightening activities to further decrease ADHD symptoms.
