What are ADD and ADHD?
Attention deficit disorder (ADD) is a chronic illness that usually exhibits brief attention span, general impulsiveness, and consistent agitation; it’s also identified as hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) for children with attention deficits coupled with hyperactive behavior. Symptoms start at childhood and can typically last all throughout adulthood.
Millions of Americans live with ADHD/ADD and go through increasing difficulties with personal and social interactions, low self-confidence, and work or school duties. Various instances of ADD described symptoms becoming weaker when patients grew older, but several others have also reported significant symptoms lasting throughout life.
Why use CBD for ADD and ADHD?
Research from scientific studies have indicated a possible connection between our brain’s management of dopamine and the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Symptoms of ADD/ADHD typically correlates to inadequate levels of dopamine that governs mental capabilities such as attention and memory.
Observations from clinical tests have shown how CBD achieves the homeostasis of dopamine by reacting with distinct receptors that activate the body’s natural creation of dopamine. Scientists were able to conclude that consistent and precise applications of CBD enhanced attention, behavior, and productivity of people living with ADD/ADHD.
