Treat ADHD with medical cannabis

ADHD - or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - is a behavioral disorder that can occur in children, adolescents and adults. Even though ADHD was long known as a typical children's disease, the disorder is widespread among adults and often impairs those affected in their way of life. Depending on the age and character of the ADHD patient, the symptoms can vary in severity - but they are a burden in any case. The three typical symptoms include hyperactivity, inattention and impulsivity.

Causes

The causes of ADHD are not yet completely clear. However, there are various conjectures that assume an interaction of different factors: Complications during pregnancy or birth, as well as external environmental factors that are responsible for a change in the neuronal control circuits.

Triggers of ADHD symptoms

In ADHD, there is an increased level of cortisol and a decreased level of dopamine, which trigger the typical ADHD symptoms. Medical cannabis can correct this imbalance by facilitating the brain's transfer of dopamine and serotonin. By additionally activating the adenosine receptors, it can reduce anxiety and increase concentration.
