ADD/ADHD & Marijuana

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is usually marked by distractibility, impulsivity, and hyperactivity in children. Adults usually suffer from ADD, which is similar to ADHD without the hyperactivity aspect. Both adults and children who suffer from ADHD/ADD can also suffer from high anxiety and depression. Common treatment for ADHD/ADD can include Adderal, Ritalin and Vyvanse, drugs that are chemically are similar to cocaine and methamphetamine. One aspect of this ADHD/ADD is a shortage of dopamine in the brain. Both Ritalin and Adderall stimulate dopamine and thereby increasing concentration in the body, but come with many side effects. The endocannabinoid system is known to influence dopamine levels in the body. Marijuana can temporarily increase dopamine in the body by targeting the endocannabinoid system without the negative side affects associated with the pharmaceuticals.
