You must have heard a lot about the therapeutic benefits of CBD, but what about the use of CBD oil and ADHD in children - does it really work? We will tell you how CBD works for ADHD, what are its advantages over conventional medication, and introduce you to other parents' experiences.
What research says
- CBD in people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: a study involving 30 people who received CBD. All participants were assessed for symptom levels and IQ scores on standardised tests. The study found moderate improvements in cognitive function and symptom reduction, as well as nominal improvements in impulsivity and hyperactivity.
- A study of hemp use by participants with ADHD associated with hyperactivity or impulsivity. It found that in the absence of hemp use, participants were significantly more hyperactive and impulsive.
- In a 2017 study, adults with ADHD took Sativex, a drug containing the cannabinoids CBD and THC. Although there was minimal improvement, there was still a slight reduction in ADHD symptoms.
- A 2015 study involved 30 patients who had been treated for ADHD with conventional drugs to which there was a negative response. However, they responded positively to CBD = improvement in ADHD symptoms.

How does CBD affect children with ADHD?
ADHD is characterised by low levels of dopamine (the neurotransmitter that controls the brain's cognitive abilities - memory, attention span and mood). It causes the manifestation of Attention Deficit Disorder = ADHD.
Cannabinoids have been shown to improve the transmission of a brain chemical neurotransmitter - dopamine. It is this chemical that helps to improve cognitive processes. CBD drops help to improve attention in ADHD patients by activating adenosine receptors in the brain, thereby reducing anxiety. They work to minimise distractibility and hyperactivity in ADHD patients.

Improved condition of son´s ADHD with CBD oil
My son Valdemar has ADHD and when we tried the CBD hemp oil, we noticed that the oil improved its condition immediately. His sleep has improved as well and it's quieter.
Our daughter's experience with ADHD and CBD
I learned about using CBD from a FB group on ADHD. Many mums there were sharing tips with each other and that they were using CBD to relieve seizures and calm her down.
Up until that point I had only associated cannabis with the cannabinoid THC and was then very interested in the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD.
We wanted to solve our daughter's sleep problem first and I wondered if CBD oil could help with anxiety and aggressive states (the biggest problem was getting her dressed, she is very hypersensitive).
We ordered our first CBD drops from Cannadorra 3 years ago. I am a bit "self-taught" and adjusted the dosage by myself. When I felt the desired effect was coming, we left the dosage at the dosage we were happy with. As it has been 3 years, I don't really remember exactly the first days of taking CBD, but I do know that sleep was the first thing that started to improve, and hand in hand with that the anxiety and aggressive states improved.
We are currently taking 10% CBD drops and giving my daughter 6 drops a day. I also tried to stop taking the drops, but it was impossible as my daughter became completely different in a matter of moments and the aggressive and anxious states became more frequent.
Personally, I take CBD (20%) too, it makes me much calmer afterwards and that is really necessary sometimes.
How to use and CBD dosage for ADHD
The most common product chosen is CBD oil and CBD coconut oil.
In order to dose CBD correctly, we recommend always starting gradually with a small dosage. Take CBD drops directly under the tongue, as this ensures maximum bioavailability (effectiveness).
In general, dosage recommendations for CBD for children with ADHD are as follows.
