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.

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.*
