Concentration Issues Are NOT Uncommon.
In the United States alone, 6.4 million children have been diagnosed with ADHD, and every year the number of children diagnosed is increasing. That's a staggering 11% of school children, not to mention 4.4% of adults in the United States have also been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD.
Signs Often Appear at a Young Age.
The average age of ADHD diagnosis is 7 years old, but signs usually begin around ages 3-6.
Signs of concentration issues include:
- Angry Outbursts
- Poor Organizational Skills
- Low Self-Esteem
- Chronic Boredom
Prescription Dependence Can Become Dangerous.
While prescriptions do help many, they are a major contributor to deaths in the United States. Over the past 20 years, reports of prescription abuse have increased dramatically, and deaths due to accidental overdose are on the rise as well. It's not just adults who recreationally and accidentally misuse prescriptions. Among 12th graders, pharmaceutical drugs used non-medically account for 60% of the most-used substances.
Proven Alternatives Are Now Available.
Many people have found success using CBD to treat problems with concentration. By helping to maintain homeostasis in the body, CBD helps the brain to remain focused. ADD/ADHD are involved with high levels of cortisol and low levels of dopamine. CBD can reduce levels of cortisol and increase dopamine, improving concentration and attention.
