A lot of statistics show that cases of Attention Deficit Disorder, commonly called as ADD, a type of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ADHD, significantly increased in the United States.
As a matter of fact, ADD and ADHD are now considered as household terms.
Cannabidiol, popularly known as CBD, is seen as a promising cure. Advocates of CBD oils, who are also members of the American Academy of Pediatrics, recommend it to be part of the treatment for children with ADD and ADHD.
However, the current go-to treatment as of the moment is the use of Methylphenidate, also known as Ritalin.
Although this drug can speed up amphetamine, it has a lot of side effects to the receiver. Given that having ADD and ADHD already causes anger, social anxiety and other developmental delays, a drug that could possibly cause negative side effects is avoided.
It is with great enthusiasm that emerging research about cannabis is being embraced, giving more chances for ADD and ADHD to be lessened.
CBD oils contain minimal to no psychoactive ingredients. Dr. Jones, who is an active advocate of CBD oils in treating ADD and ADHD says that it has a more effective outcome over other drugs and the side effects are lesser compared to usual medications such as Ritalin.
Although some patients have already tried and could guarantee the effectiveness of the CBD oils, it is still common protocol that these receivers are closely observed by medical professionals.
For Dr. Jones, cannabis should not only belong to the streets for recreational consumption but the discourse should be leveled up because it is the lab and the doctor’s office that needs it the most.
It has also been proven, through many published and exposed research, that CBD oils have a lot of benefits which includes the ability of the person to increase his or her focus to be able to pay more attention in certain events.
Anger is displaced and contained, impulsiveness is also lessened, and last but not the least, the person is able to enjoy more relaxation and holistic peacefulness.
Aside from these direct benefits to the user, it also affects the person’s academic performance such as the understanding and retention of lessons and activities that lead to the improvement of final outputs ad grades.
Oftentimes, children with ADD and ADHD are neglected with what seems to be a normal life for many. But with the emergence and the development of CBD oils as the new primary source of these ailments, these people, including their families, have a brighter and stronger sense of hope.
The stereotypical “normal life” that is enjoyed by many, will hopefully be experienced by children who are considered as different and unique.
