Through viral videos on social media, more and more young and middle-aged adults are discovering they have undiagnosed ADHD. CBD oil is one trending way to manage ADHD symptoms in lieu of medication, but is this the right treatment?
According to Mayo Clinic, adult ADHD symptoms include:
- Disorganization and problems prioritizing
- Poor time management skills
- Problems focusing on a task
- Trouble multitasking
- Excessive activity or restlessness
- Poor planning
- Low frustration tolerance
- Frequent mood swings
- Problems following through and completing tasks
- Hot temper
- Trouble coping with stress
CBD oil can help regulate the immune system, reduce pain and inflammation, and reduce anxiety, which could help minimize certain ADHD symptoms. There are also very few side effects of CBD oil, unlike traditional ADHD medication.
However, there have not been enough studies performed to determine if CBD is a true alternative to ADHD medication. The studies that have been done could only give moderate recommendations supporting CBD for ADHD treatment.
If you do decide to try CBD oil for ADHD symptoms, keep your expectations low. Everyone’s ADHD symptoms are different, and what works for someone else may not work for you. CBD oil is also not a replacement for medication or other treatments prescribed by your physician. Be sure to buy your products from a reputable source and buy products containing less than 0.3% THC in order to comply with federal law.
