CADDRA has developed a new Cannabis and ADHD policy statement for clinicians and members. Understanding the effect of cannabis on the brain is important especially for those with ADHD who struggle with impairment in the regions responsible for executive function – attention, planning, organization, time management, decision-making, working memory, impulse control, emotional regulation, etc. Based on the literature published to date, CADDRA concludes that there is NO evidence that cannabis is an effective treatment for ADHD or that it improves attention and productivity.
