You’ve probably noticed that certain varieties of cannabis help you stay focused and productive while others can send your mind completely off the rails. Finding that perfect focusing strain requires a little self-analysis first: What is it that’s impeding your concentration? Are you disengaged? Do your thoughts race? Think of the below sections as your roadmap to the right strain.
We’re still waiting for research to provide more guidance on why cannabis might or might not help someone with ADD/ADHD, but we’re limited mostly to personal anecdotes. As s, it’s not a bad idea to try a few different strains – a high-THC strain, a low-THC strain, high-CBD, balanced THC-CBD, and so on. At the end of this list, you’ll also find some appetite-boosting, sleep-inducing strains for those of you experiencing the negative side effects of stimulant ADD/ADHD medications.
