The negative impact of traditional medicinal preparations pushes doctors in the United States, Israel, Canada and some other countries to write young patients suffering from ADHD hemp because they are convinced that it is a safer alternative for the body of the child.
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, ADHD) - neurological and behavioral developmental disorder that begins in childhood. According to various estimates affects about 6-9% of school children and 5% of adults. Manifested by symptoms such as concentration difficulties, hyperactivity and impulsivity poorly managed. With neurological point of view of ADHD is considered as a persistent and chronic syndrome for which a cure is not found.
Features cannabis in the treatment of ADHD
On the pages of the profile Ezine Ukrainian growers for all time of its existence only once mentioned
about the research in this area. Currently, research opportunities hemp during ADHD treatment is extremely small. Despite this, medical practitioners in those countries where it is permitted the use of medical cannabis for therapeutic purposes were made in support of the possibility of using various constituents of hemp (including leaves and inflorescence) for the treatment of the aforementioned disease. Use the active components of cannabis medical staff to treat ADHD argue that cannabis is safer for the human body and can not cause such a relationship, both traditional pharmacological agents.
At the moment, human clinical trials to study the possibilities of cannabis in the treatment of ADHD is not carried out, but a significant number of pre-clinical studies have demonstrated the high efficiency of the plant in the prevention and treatment of neurological, behavioral disorders. According to the theoretical research, the endocannabinoid system of the human body has the ability to influence the level of dopamine in the brain tissue. It is this feature makes sense to use to explore the possibility of clinical treatment of ADHD.
For example, one study published in 2009 states that anandamide levels in people with ADHD is higher than that of ordinary citizens. According to this feature which revealed the scientists, the active production of endocannabinoids is a natural reaction to the different symptoms of ADHD. Logical to assume that the very endocannabinoid system of the human body can be effectively and purposefully used to treat this disorder.
Other studies have shown that cannabinoid receptors of the human body, which are in areas of the brain associated with symptoms of ADHD, are concentrated in larger than normal quantities. increasingly cannabinoid receptor concentration in those parts of the brain that play a key role in the regulation of emotional state, as well as the processes associated with its storage, the development of bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety suggest that active cannabis components can recover or adjust normal function is data lobes of the brain of man.
Already for anybody not a secret that some cannabinoids
produce the effect of antidepressants, as well as substances that suppress anxiety. In fact, even if clinical studies demonstrate the inability to deal with all hemp ADHD symptoms using the ingredients can be hemp rid of depression and anxiety, which are inherent in many patients with ADHD.
Prospects for the use of cannabis for the treatment of ADHD
hemp's potential in the treatment of ADHD at this time has not been studied and carried out research on this subject in the early stages. In countries where it is permitted medical use of cannabis to their patients already prescribed its components for the effective treatment of this syndrome. This occurs also due to the fact that the existing drugs developed to treat ADHD since they enter the market surrounded pharmacological disputes regarding the safety of their use, as well as their questionable efficacy. Doubts among practitioners and patients produce regular scandals, revealing the negative side effects of pharmacological agents or the absence of any effect in their long-term use. The findings published in 2012, a joint study conducted by Dr. K.Rubia demonstrated the brain's ability to adapt to the constant use of stimulant medication, constantly increasing the rate of elimination of dopamine. This explains the need for continuous improvement of the dose of drugs used during the treatment.
The need to continuously improve the dosage of drugs that give a negative side effect is all the more alarming when one considers that the vast majority of patients with ADHD - children. In adolescence, the brain of the little man is developing intensively and is undergoing significant changes. Therefore, the negative impact of traditional medicinal preparations pushes doctors in the United States
and some other countries to write young patients suffering from ADHD hemp because they are convinced that it is a safer alternative for the body of the child. For example, Dr. Claudia Jensen (Claudia Jensen) argues that taking cannabis products
of its young patients leads to the fact that the kids become more attentive, collected, calm, friendly, relaxed, and improve their performance indicators in the pre-school and school education.
