ADHD/ADD

- Anxiety & Mood

- Epilepsy/Seizures

- Pain

Every parent wants what’s best for their child. We want to guide and protect them, foster a happy life, and help them grow to reach their highest potential. With pain or illness, whether mental or physical, this can be more challenging.

The good news: many parents are finding support through CBD supplementation. Though some of the research is still preliminary, users report improvements for a range of issues that impact children and adults alike, including:

  • Increase in Focus
  • Improvement in Memory
  • Higher Level of Mental Alertness
  • Stress Management
  • Improved Quality of Sleep
  • Boosted Immune Function
  • Decreased Anxiety

As CBD increases in popularity at a rapid speed, researchers are increasingly turning their attention to better understanding this potent natural remedy. So far, the research has been promising in many areas, including:

  • Neuroprotective Properties
  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties
  • Increased Brain Health
  • Increased Mood
  • Reduced Risk of Diabetes & Obesity
  • Reduced Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
  • Reduced Risk of Cancer
  • Reduced Risk of Age-Related Bone Disease
  • Reduction in Skin Issues
  • Reduction in Symptoms of Anxiety & Stress
  • Reduction in Chronic & Acute Pain
  • Improvements in Sleep Disorders
  • Reduction in Seizure Activity

ADHD/ADD

Little research has been done in this area, however, some anecdotal evidence suggests that CBD oil may help with the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD/ADD. That said, many people with ADHD also suffer from anxiety and sleep issues. Early research does support the efficacy of CBD in managing anxiety and sleep-related symptoms. Furthermore, there is evidence that CBD can improve mental performance and behavior, which certainly play a role in ADHD/ADD.

Anxiety & Mood

It has been found that CBD has the ability to act on the brain’s serotonin receptors, the neurotransmitter responsible for regulating mood. It comes as no surprise then that research supports the efficacy of CBD for everything from anxiety and insomnia symptoms to depression and even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Epilepsy/Seizures

A number of studies examining CBD have found significant reductions in seizure activity. This includes research examining both children and adults. A recent meta-analysis examining studies focused on the effectiveness of CBD for seizures found over a 70% reduction in seizure activity from almost 3/4 of the participants examined. This comes as a huge potential relief for anyone suffering from seizures — and even more so for parents whose children are suffering.

Pain

Countless clinical research studies have shown that CBD can help decrease pain. It is believed that it does this in three major ways: impacting neurotransmitters and endocannabinoid receptors plus reducing inflammation in the body. In the case of pain, CBD can be taken orally or applied topically at the site of pain.

Important things to note before giving your child CBD:

Not all CBD is created equal. Choose organic, pesticide-free CBD that is third-party tested to ensure purity, quality, and that it is under the 0.3% THC legal limit.
