    I have ADHD and I’ve used CBD oil. I don’t think it lessens executive functions. That’s THC. CBD has only trace amounts of THC. Give it a try. If it doesn’t help then stop it. Make sure it’s organic and from a reputiable spot. UnnaGoods.com is a great spot to get it from. I’ve used their stuff and it works. Right now you can’t buy it off the site directly, but contact them and they will get you some. I think a tinture is about $40. Well worth it.

    Hi my 5 yo son is on Methamphetdate (can’t spell that for the life of me sorry. The generic Ritalin long acting). He was diagnosed at 4 yoa. We also have him on Tenex (not sure the dose as of right now). It works for impulse control at school. Just starting a second dose for home.

    I was diagnosed almost 35 years ago when I was 5 with ADHD and an LD. I wouldn’t be where I am today without meds. I’ve been on Ritalin, Adderall and no Vyvanse. Meds are a good place to start, but also getting help from a mental health DR (psychiatrist and psychologist) is key as well.

    I hope my info that I provided helped. Best of luck!

    My kiddo is 5 yo and has that same issue. Our Dr. put my kiddo on Tenex during the day in addition to his regular ADHD meds. It helps at school, so we thought we’d add a second dose at night. So far still rebounding, but will report back.

    Good luck!
