Complimentary Options for Managing ADHD
CBD works best when combined with a whole body approach. It is not a miracle cure and in most cases will take the edge off symptoms, creating a positive environment to initiate effective complimentary daily programs to further improve and bring balance in your home.
Essential Oils are a great compliment to CBD. By combining the beneficial effects of CBD with the topical application or diffusion of essential oils, it becomes a win/win. Read our article about the best essential oils for managing ADHD HERE.

We recommend everyone starts at 2mg per day if taking a sublingual dose and 4-5 mg per day if ingesting CBD (gummies or adding to any food or drink), however you can always start lower.
You can increase the milligrams (mg) whenever you feel comfortable doing so but look for these side effects from taking too much, too quick. If you experience these, just back off the amount the next day.
NOTE: CBD is biphasic which means it can have opposite effects at high and low doses. It is recommended to start low, but if after 1-2 weeks and increased hyperactivity and/or aggression (more stimulated) is apparent and not reducing, then a high dose (25-50 mg) may be necessary for your individual needs. *based on feedback in our FB group, Individuals with autism are known to need much higher doses.*
- Increased hyperactivity
- Moody or irritable
- aggression or agitated
- highly emotional
- stomach aches if taken on full stomach
Step 1 – Enter the amount of total milligrams (mg) on the bottle. Typically, it will be 240, 500, 725, 900, 1000, or 1500. This is the total amount of cannabinoid extract in the bottle.
Step 2 – Enter the amount of fluid in milliliters (ml).
