Science is increasingly opening up to the natural curing powers of cannabis especially for nerve relate diseases. This is why even states that did not legalize recreational marijuana are trying to at least make medicinal marijuana available to people who will greatly benefit from Cannabis edibles. Problems like insomnia, anxiety, hyper tension can be cured to some extent by using cannabis. Another benefit that many claim can come out of using Cannabis is controlling ADHD. Using cannabis helps to relax the mind and ease the whole nervous system which is why people believe it can help in ADHD. People who suffer from ADHD have an overactive mind that just does not let them focus on anything. Cannabis edibles are consumed by many to help them relax and get a good sleep, so doctors claim that cannabis can help those suffering from ADHD to focus their minds and slow down a bit. Medicines that are currently used for controlling ADHD can in the long term have side effects like lack of sleep, increased anxiety and even loss of
appetite. So can cannabis really help? Let us find out.
It is true that there is not much research to support the fact that taking cannabis edibles or CBD oil can help in controlling ADHD. It is true that marijuana is used and have been found effective in easing those who suffer from symptoms similar to those experienced by people suffering from ADHD like hyperactivity. A 2017 research study gave the reports that using cannabis particularly CBD and THC can maybe help cure some of the symptoms that ADHD patients suffer and unlike the medicines used now these compounds do not lead to a deterioration in the cognitive growth of a child. Since ADHD is an affliction that is discovered in the formative years of a child, treatment has to be cautious in how the drugs effect the overall growth of the child. Extreme cases of ADHD can possibly be treated with cannabis without having long term effects. A 2015 German research shows that it helps patients sleep and makes them less distracted. Using cannabis and relaxing the nerves helps patients get out of the constant tension that b
locks their brain. They are able to slow down and have a normal life, pursue education and even go to work as adults.
ADHD patients suffer from a lack of endocannabinoids and the deficit is recovered when using cannabis, which is a reason why patients tend to prefer the usage of cannabis. With this deficit met, the brain is able to concentrate and focus. The results of treating oneself with cannabis in such cases have mostly been positive and doctors are still conducting research to be a 100% sure and make this a more universally used treatment for ADHD. Marijuana being natural is far less harmful for the nervous system than regular drugs. The body takes it better and it acts like a therapy for the nerves. Using a small amount and avoiding addiction can help many ADH patients.
