October 21, 2021Many adults with ADHD who use cannabis report positive effects on symptoms and other benefits, according a new study published in the Journal of Attention Disorders1 that underscores the extent to which individuals with ADHD self-medicate with cannabis.The study asked 1,738 adults aged 18 to 55 to complete an online survey about ADHD symptoms, cannabis use, and the perceived effects of cannabis on symptoms, medication side effects, and executive dysfunction.

Most participants (87%) did not have an ADHD diagnosis, but roughly 25% of the sample met or surpassed the threshold for mildly symptomatic ADHD and reported experiencing ADHD-like symptoms.Roughly three-quarters of participants with ADHD were also classified as cannabis.
