Cannabis “More Effective than Ritalin” in Treatment of ADHD

A new, groundbreaking survey has suggested that medical cannabis may be a more effective medicine for ADHD patients than Adderall or Ritalin.

A German study, published in 2015 gathered information from 30 patients, all suffering with the disorder.

In the results, all 30 participants reported improved sleep and improved concentration as well as a reduction in impulsive behaviour when using medical cannabis treatment. The participants all confirmed that they had “limited success” using prescribed medicines like Adderall or Ritalin, to treat the same symptoms.

Dr. David Berman, a California Physician has stated that he believes cannabis to be the best treatment for ADHD, especially if taken in conjunction with prescribed stimulants.

Prescription drugs like Atterall and Ritalin are stimulant medications which often come with side effects such as nervousness, sleep problems and lack of appetite. Dr. Berman suggests that the effects of cannabis can counteract these side effects and even stated medicating with cannabis only, to avoid these symptoms in the first instance.
