Due to the fact that CBD produced promising results in a variety of mental disorders, specialists wonder if it could help ADHD patients as well. Considering that when ADHD is present in the brain of a person, the signs are elevated cortisol levels and low dopamine levels.

Which explains the constant state of irritation and the inability to calm down and relax, CBD could help by lowering cortisol and inducing a state of calmness.

While it is true that there is a specific medication that is prescribed in the case of ADHD patients, many complain about the unpleasant side-effects they produce, like constant headaches which often lead to a decrease in the quality of sleep.

Those that gave CBD oil a chance, said that the new treatment stopped their headaches and gave them the possibility, for some the first time in their lives, to actually get a hold of their mind.

No risks of negative side-effects

The-tVTA-RMTg-as-a-GABA-brake-for-the-dopamine-system-The-schema-represents-theThe best part about using CBD oil for ADHD is that this natural product won’t generate any unwanted side-effects.

CBD has nothing to do with an addictive substances and will not alter the perception ability of a person, this is why one can use CBD at any time during the day or night.

If you use CBD accordingly and utilize the right dose in your case, there are absolutely no risks. It is less likely for an overdose to happen and even if it does, health-related risks are minimum.

Plus, even if you decide to adopt this treatment for a long-term, you will not experience the “need” to take it, as the body will not develop any form of addiction toward it.

This is because the human body was designed to produce cannabinoids in a natural manner. Problems occur when these cannabinoids are not produced as it should.

The medication available for ADHD is meant to stimulate the production of dopamine, a chemical that is usually produced by the brain, responsible for our ability to unroll cognitive processes, like memorizing things and focusing on our activities.

Due to this fact, CBD reacts so well in our body, as the cannabinoids it contains will immediately bind with the right kind of receptors, restoring the balance in a way that no drugs can.

But, in the case of ADHD patients, there is an issue with dopamine, as the brain is not producing sufficient dopamine. According to the latest researches, CBD can do the same as specialized ADHD medication and that is to stimulate the production of dopamine and improve the brain function.

Thus, the cannabinoids, which are the active components of CBD oil, has a great potential at improving the state of mental health in people suffering from ADHD, making dopamine more available to their brains.

And the best part about this treatment is that it is safe to be used in the case of children as well, as it doesn’t trigger any addictions or unwanted psychoactive effects.

Different Methods of Taking CBD

cbd oil

CBD, a non-psychoactive chemical in cannabis, seems to generate new studies every day claiming a new usage. It can be difficult for consumers to make sense of the products they find advertised online and at their local dispensary, and even more difficult to decide which is right for them.

With CBD suddenly being touted in food products and cosmetics, in the form of different oils, crystals, e-liquids and teas, it’s no surprise many are confused by it all. To help make sense of so many options, we’ve created a guide to some of the most common CBD products available.

CBD-rich oil

How it’s made:

CBD-rich oil is a specific oil that contains CBD and doesn’t contain THC. CBD-rich oil is obtained via extraction made from cannabis flowers, most of the times from hemp strains rich in CBD. Then this extract can be mixed with hemp seed oil, olive oil or other types of oil to facilitate ingestion. These CBD-rich oil products are non-psychoactive.

It is important to know the difference between CBD oil and Hemp seed oil.
Hemp seed oil is a hemp extract taken from the seeds of the plant. Industrial hemp is the only plant used for this type of hemp oil. The seeds of the hemp plant can be cold pressed, peeled or unpeeled (preferably cold), to create a delicious oil. There are no cannabinoids such as THC or CBD present in the oil since hemp seeds are not psychoactive. Hemp oil is legal in most countries and can be found in food markets, together with more common types of oil, like olive oil.

How you use it:

CBD-rich oil can be consumed in many ways. Users looking for the strongest effect from the oil can take it directly by placing a drop on or under the tongue so the oil is absorbed through the mouth and digestive tract. Others who want to enjoy the experience of consumption may choose to add a drop of oil to cooking or baked goods or dissolve a drop in their smoothie or tea.

Hemp seed oil can be found in food markets, together with more common types of oil, like olive oil. Hemp seed oil is known for its great taste and for it’s high values of unsaturated fats, such as Omega 3 and Omega 6.  It can be used in Many different applications such as  Lotions or soaps, a base for plastics, instead of petroleum and eco-friendly paints.

CBD Crystals

How they’re made:

After hemp oil is removed from the plant, it can be further refined to isolate only CBD. To isolate pure CBD crystals, extracted hemp oil is put through a ‘winterisation’ process- or slowly heated to remove fats and lipids. Then, a machine called a rotary evaporator is used to remove any remaining plant traces. The final product is decarboxylated through another meticulous heating process to activate the cannabinoids, making chemicals bioavailable for consumers.

 

How you use it:

CBD crystals give consumers more versatility than oil. Like hemp oil, they can be added to foods, dissolved in drinks or swallowed whole, but unlike oil, crystals can also be ‘dabbed’  like cannabis concentrates (a manual vaporization method) made into an e-liquid, or sprinkled over a cigarette or joint.

Pros and cons:

Because crystals are more highly concentrated than other forms of CBD—up to 99.8% in some cases, they produce a more immediate effect than other methods of consuming it. On the downside, isolating only one cannabinoid removes a variety of terpenes from the final product.

 

Methods of ingestion are entirely up to the user’s preference. Different methods could have different effects on one person to another based on their personal taste.

For users looking for an easy use, we recommend our wide range of CBD e-liquids, which are available in different strengths to suit your needs. For consumers looking for the highest-impact product available, pure CBD crystals may be the best option. For those simply wanting to explore the use of CBD in their normal diet, hemp oil may have the best overall benefits. CBD tea is best suited for consumers who simply want a flavourful tea.

CBD E-Liquids

How it’s made:

CBD e-liquids are CBD products designed for use in e-cigarettes or vaporisers. Many manufacturers start with pure CBD crystals in order to precisely measure the CBD dosage, combining them with vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol. High-quality e-liquid producers also add terpenes, (aromatic compounds from the cannabis plant) back into the e-liquid at the end of the process to enhance flavour.

How you use it:

CBD e-liquids can be used in place of nicotine e-liquids in any standard e-cigarette or portable vaporiser. Simply add the e-liquid to the tank of your vape and follow the device’s instructions to inhale the vapour. Prepared e-liquid cartridges are also available for e-cigarette models that don’t allow for manual refills.

Pros and cons:

E-cigarettes have become a huge trend. They are convenient and discreet when travelling and allow users to ‘vape’ in places where they were previously not allowed to smoke, like inside public buildings or at the office. Dosages in this form can vary, producers often offer different strengths of CBD e-liquids for different user preferences. This is the most affordable, direct and convenient option for a majority of consumers.

CBD Tea

How it’s made:

CBD tea is made simply by drying the leaves and buds of CBD-rich hemp plants. Like other cannabinoids, CBD extracts from the plant and binds to fats during any heating process. To get the best effect the tea should be brewed for several minutes with some type of fat like milk, cream, or coconut oil. Without fat included in brewing, users will only get the benefits of antioxidants, fatty acids and the tea’s sweet, subtle flavour rather than active cannabinoids.

How to use it:

To get the full flavour of hemp tea, brew tea in hot water with milk, cream or coconut oil for 5 minutes or more. Dried hemp tea leaves can also be used as a replacement for loose rolling tobacco when making cigarettes or joints.

Pros and cons:

Because raw dried hemp leaves have not gone through processes to activate the chemicals they contain, the cannabinoids in hemp tea are less ‘bioavailable’, meaning the user will feel a much weaker overall effect compared to other methods.
