Mental clarity: the impact of hemp on focus and concentration


Inability to focus and concentrate can make any task or job difficult to complete. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is characterized by having a difficult time focusing on tasks and excessive activity. ADHD is typically diagnosed in children and adolescents and may even be found as an adult. There is known controversy over diagnosing and treating of ADHD, particularly the medications used for ADHD and the high rate of negative side effects.

Hemp based products have been reviewed and researched and shown to help with improvements on symptoms caused by ADHD. Dr. David Bearman is a major scientist in the research on hemp based substances. Bearman has been studying the relationship between the endocannibinoid system and ADHD. He suggests that more research is needed, but there is a good amount of evidence that suggest that hemp based therapy can significantly improve the levels of dopamine in the body. Dopamine deficiency has been noticeably observed in ADHD patients and is linked to inability to focus and concentrate. Bearman states hemp based substances "appears to treat ADD and ADHD by increasing the availability of dopamine. This then has the same effect but is a different mechanism of action than stimulants like Ritalin and Dexedrine."

There are many forms of hemp based products available. How do you find what is right for you? The first step is to talk with your professional health care provider before adding anything new to your daily routine. Second, make sure you do the research on a high quality hemp based product source. There are many hemp products available on the market today, finding a high quality, third party lab tested, organically sourced hemp product is key! Third, once you find that source, be consistent with taking hemp based products. If you are taking hemp twice or three times per day, consider taking it after you brush your teeth or eat a meal, so hemp quickly becomes a part of your daily routine. One of my personal favorite hemp based product for focus is Axton's Fierce Focus Formula. It has high quality hemp with caffeine and other nootropics to keep you attentive and focused all day long.
