How CBD LAB Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Can Help Manage Symptoms of ADHD

Understanding ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is widely prevalent in today’s information era. In fact, it is one of the most common developmental disorders.

The disorder is sometimes referred to as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), but that no longer applies. The accepted overarching term is now ADHD, in accordance with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5).

ADHD is a mental disorder found in both children and adults and is characterized by abnormal levels of hyperactive and impulsive behaviors.

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), a child or adult should show six of these behaviors within two categories for a diagnosis:

Distracted/Inattentive behaviors:

  • Frequently makes careless mistakes at school/work
  • Struggles to maintain focus on tasks
  • Has trouble listening
  • Finds it difficult to follow instructions
  •  Poor time management skills and often misses deadlines
  • Struggles with tasks that require attention to detail, often procrastinates
  • Often forgets to pay bills, run errands, or turn in homework
  • Gets distracted easily
  • Loses track of essential items easily

Hyperactive behaviors:

  • Has trouble remaining “still”, and often fidgets
  • Moving around in contexts where sitting still is appropriate (eg. in meetings or classes)
  • Difficulty in completing tasks or assignments quietly
  • Seems continuously “on the move”
  • Displays a lack of patience or inability to wait their turn
  • Often interrupts others during a conversation
  • May be described as always “talking too much”

ADHD is a debilitating disorder and can negatively affect many aspects of a person’s life.

Someone suffering from ADHD is not simply lazy or disruptive. They have incredible trouble doing the everyday things the rest of us take for granted.

Everyday activities such as sitting still in class or at work and concentrating on a single task. These activities are incredibly difficult for them.

Children and adults suffering from ADHD experience feelings of shame because in any educational institution it is required that we can sit still and learn.

There is a significantly increased risk of developing depression if you suffer from ADHD.

A child with ADHD is 5 times more likely to develop major depression. Another study found that 31 percent of adults with ADHD also have depression.

This disorder can have devastating effects on a child’s life.

ADHD is not only a “childhood” disorder. Up to 60% of children with ADHD still display symptoms as adults.

Even though research on CBD as an ADHD treatment is limited. There is a wealth of  anecdotal evidence from people who swear by it.

People seeking a safe, plant-based and natural treatment route.

Therefore, this article serves to provide more information on how CBD LAB Broad Spectrum CBD Oil can be used to help with symptoms of  ADHD.

What Causes ADHD?

Despite the prevalence of ADHD, experts are not completely certain what causes it.

Studies suggest that reduced dopamine levels in the brain can play a role in developing ADHD. Dopamine is a very important neurotransmitter that plays an important role in regulating our movements and emotional responses.

Other factors include trauma to the brain, genetic disposition, smoking, environmental factors and diet.

Please Note Parents: Before you go blaming yourself for your child’s ADHD. There is a common myth that ADHD is caused by poor parenting.

This is not true! The National Institutes of Health lists ADHD as a medical condition. All that parents can do is try to find the best treatment to ensure a better quality of life for their child.

Common Treatments

ADHD medications are characterised by two main types: Stimulant and non-stimulant medications.

In an ideal world, these medications would help all people with ADHD.  They are supposed to affect the brain chemicals to help a patient better control their actions and impulses. However, no two brains are exactly the same and getting the right balance of these chemicals is no easy task.

These ADHD medications come with a long list of some pretty nasty side-effects. To name just a few:

  • Headache
  • Decreased appetite
  • Stomach ache
  • Nervousness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Mood swings
  • Sweating
  • Shaking
  • Fever
  • Increased heart rate
  • Weight loss
  • Dizziness
  • Slowing of growth in children
  • Seizures
  • Eyesight changes or blurred vision.

How CBD LAB Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Can Help?

The medicinal properties of CBD Oil are well documented and many people have benefited from its amazing health-giving properties.

Adults and parents of children with ADHD who are looking for a safe and natural medicine to manage symptoms should consider  CBD treatment

With more positive side-effects than negative, CBD LAB’S Broad Spectrum CBD Oil shines as an effective medicine.

CBD LAB Broad Spectrum CBD Oil is distilled from selected Hemp flowers and contains less than 0.001% THC as per the legal limit, so it’s completely safe and legal. 

How Exactly Does it Work?

An integral part of the endocannabinoid system are cannabinoid receptors, found throughout the body. There are two types:

  • CB1 receptors (found in the brain {central nervous system})
  • CB2 receptors (found in the peripheral nervous system) 

The cannabinoids found in CBD LAB Broad Spectrum CBD Oil bind to these cannabinoid receptors to stimulate feel-good responses.

Studies have also shown that when CBD binds with these CB1 or CB2 receptors, it actually improves the ability and potential of that receptor. Thus improving all-round receptor functionality.

One of the main endocannabinoids produced in the body is anandamide (AEA) which influences physiological systems such as pain, appetite regulation, pleasure and reward, but this very important molecule can sometimes be broken down by a certain enzyme within your body.

 CBD LAB’S Broad Spectrum CBD Oil can inhibit the breakdown of the endocannabinoid anandamide and help restore homeostasis within the body.

 …thus enhancing its function…

…which means less stress, irritability, headaches and other health issues. 

The cannabinoids in CBD LAB Broad Spectrum CBD Oil signal the body to calm the stress response.

Which can give ADHD sufferers significant relief from symptoms such as insomnia and depression that they struggle with daily.
