Will ADHD Symptoms Improve with Marijuana Use?
Featuring L. Eugene Arnold, MD, MEd, and Margaret Sibley, PhD
People report that marijuana use helps improve their ADHD symptoms. But does it really help? Or does it mask a person’s ability to care about their problems rather than work to solve them? What are the benefits and downsides to using marijuana if you have ADHD? CHADD’s resident expert Dr. Gene Arnold and guest Dr. Maggie Sibley discuss the research on the therapeutic role of marijuana, the potential downside of using unregulated drugs to help with ADHD symptoms, and why more research is needed.
