Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Cannabis and ADHD: Promising Research and Strategies



Cannabis and ADHD: Promising Research and Strategies

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Traditional treatments for ADHD include stimulant medications, behavioral therapy, and lifestyle adjustments. However, recent research is exploring the potential of cannabis and its derivatives as an alternative or complementary treatment option. This article delves into the current state of research on cannabis and ADHD and discusses strategies for those considering this route.

Understanding ADHD

ADHD affects both children and adults, leading to difficulties in functioning at school, work, and in social situations. The cause of ADHD is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve genetic, environmental, and neurological factors. Symptoms can vary widely in severity and impact, making personalized treatment essential.

Cannabis and ADHD: The Research Landscape

Cannabis, known for its psychoactive and medicinal properties, contains compounds like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). Research on cannabis and ADHD is still in its early stages, but some studies suggest potential benefits:

  1. Symptom Management: Some research indicates that certain cannabinoids may help manage symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity.
  2. Neurological Effects: Cannabis can affect neurotransmitter systems in the brain, which are often dysregulated in individuals with ADHD.
  3. Alternative to Traditional Medications: Cannabis might offer a different side effect profile (Munchies or dry mouth) compared to traditional ADHD medications, which can be appealing for some individuals.

Considerations and Strategies

  1. Consultation with Healthcare Professionals: It's crucial to discuss with a healthcare provider before using cannabis, especially for those with pre-existing health conditions or who are taking other medications.
  2. Quality and Dosage: Opt for high-quality cannabis products from reputable sources. Dosage should start low and increase slowly under medical supervision.
  3. Monitoring Effects: Keep track of any changes in symptoms or side effects, and report these to a healthcare provider.


While the research on cannabis and ADHD is promising, it is still in its infancy. It's essential to approach this treatment option cautiously and under the guidance of healthcare professionals. As more research emerges, the role of cannabis in managing ADHD symptoms may become clearer, offering new hope for individuals seeking alternative or complementary treatments.
