That's what happened to one of my ex's who also has ADHD. For me, CBD doesn't really do anything. THC tends to make me freak out, though.
In combination with melatonin it helps me get a better night of sleep, I don't wake up so much during the night and my circadian rhythm feels more like a rhythm instead of a noise. xD Not as good as weed with THC for that but still.
I had a medical cannabis prescription and the cannabis doctor (yes a real doctor lol) told me last week basically that if I can get my sleep under control (ie regular quality sleep at a decent time) that a lot of my ADHD symptoms are likely to improve. I also have read a lot of people say their ADHD meds lose effectiveness if they do not get enough sleep. So while I’m not sure CBD directly does anything for ADHD—if it help manage sleep for you (and you may need to add THC), and in turn improve symptoms.
I can definitely attest to this. If I have poor sleep (which is often), my meds do not work. Which sucks because I try to take them anyway and drink a lot of coffee to force myself awake which causes poor sleep which renders my meds ineffective…
I work at a cannabis shop in LA. I also have ADHD. I have use a 4:1 (CBD:THC) from yummy karma called cloud9. I didn’t really feel any affect on me personally but I think it really depends on the person. I’ve heard whispers that say CBD doesn’t have a lot of effect on the symptoms on persons with ADHD but cannabis hasn’t had a lot of research on this topic (at least I think) because it has been federally illegal for a long time. That doesn’t mean CBD doesn’t work on you. I’ve had CBD edibles and have felt them.
29yo here I disagree, perhaps maybe everyone's different but I was diagnosed with ADD as a child and anytime I've ever stop taking my medication it was very noticeable. Recently I've started taking CBD products and I haven't had my medicine for over 3 weeks (just to test it). For some reason I've felt great everyday since. This has never been the case in the past when stopping my medication.
Reeally. Hmmm. Interesting combo
I'm wondering about the effectiveness of CBD for ADHD versus other substances such as Aderall. I have a very hard time sitting down to do my work and I was wondering if CBD would help me. Anyone with ADHD who has tried this?
Have ADHD. Sorry to say CBD does absolutely nothing to alleviate symptoms one way or the other. I can think of no way in which the effects of CBD compare to Adderall.
Thanks for the tip!
