ADHD and Medical Cannabis?
Is it hard for your child to sit still? Does your child act without thinking first? Does your child start but not finish things? If so, your child may have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Nearly everyone shows some of these behaviors at times, but ADHD lasts more than 6 months and causes problems in school, at home and in social situations. Learn about the interaction between ADD/ADHD and medical cannabis, and how the use of medical cannabis can positively counteract many of the symptoms of ADHD as well as counteract the negative side effects of common medications used to treat ADD/ADHD.
ADHD is more common in boys than girls. It affects 3-5 percent of all American children.
