Episode Description

On February 26, ADDitude aired the webinar, “Marijuana and the ADHD Brain: How to Identify and Treat Cannabis Use Disorder in Teens and Young Adults.” The topic was met with overwhelming demand and enthusiasm: there were 14,951 registrants. In this follow-up webinar with Dr. Roberto Olivardia, we will revisit some of the most important questions asked by listeners and host an additional Q&A session for live attendees.

Feedback from the February 26, 2020 webinar:

“I was recently diagnosed with ADHD but I never knew the harmful effects of marijuana and the ADHD medication.  Thank you so much for taking them time to explain the harmful effects of marijuana and ADHD.”

“Excellent webinar.  Critical timing as more and more states are legalizing weed and our kids are getting the idea that it is harmless etc.  People need to wake up to what is happening to our youth!”

“Great points with the research to back them up. This will be very helpful as I continue to educate my teen patients.”
