Scientific evidence: Cannabis and ADHD / ADD

Although not completely understood, ADHD/ADD seems to result from a dysfunction in dopamine neurotransmitter release and uptake. Dopamine receptors interact with the endocannabinoid system in many parts of the brain, which makes medical marijuana a possible treatment option for those suffering from ADHD/ADD. Cannabinoid receptors are concentrated in the amygdala and hippocampus areas of the brain. Those areas are linked strongly with attention deficit disorders, high anxiety, depression, and phobias. These centers also have a high concentration of CB1 receptors, which cannabis can target to help control these symptoms. Recent research into marijuana use by those with ADHD/ADD supports the theory that cannabis can be an effective treatment for ADHD, although there is still a scarcity of formal studies on the topic.
