CBD Oil for ADHD? The Facts About This Popular Natural Treatment
Notes: This is a comprehensive article that explains that there is no research at this point, but anecdotal information that is both positive and negative. “The studies done on CBD and ADHD to date amount to… practically nothing. One 2011 study showed that, among a group of 24 people with social anxiety disorder, the half who’d taken CBD were able to speak in front of a large audience. In 2015, researchers in Germany examined the relationship between cannabis (CBD and THC) and ADD in 30 patients, all of whom said they experienced better sleep, better concentration, and reduced impulsivity while using the cannabis products. Finally, a 2017 study looking at CBD oil and ADHD in adults found that the oil improved some symptoms, but that more studies were needed to confirm its findings.”
The second half of the article explains and warns about experimenting with cannabis for ADHD.
