Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental disorder that can affect focus, attention and behaviour. ADHD is often diagnosed in childhood, and can negatively impact success in school. When ADHD continues into adulthood, it can impair the ability to work and maintain relationships.
Adults use marijuana to manage symptoms of impulsivity and hyperactivity. Cannabinoids slow down the speed of neurotransmitters giving the brain a little bit more time to concentrate and focus.
