oooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh,bitches...this is my area....
marijuana is neither stimulant or sedative but rather is adaptagenic, much like lavendar oil, in that it serves to balance the autonomic nervous system (system that dictates arousal levels via reticular activating system, hypothalamus, etc.)
not through opiods, but through cannibinoids that we already have, but the brain likes to bind with the pot's better than its own.....
i believe that adhd is a disorder of low baseline level arousal, and people cannot function if their arousal is too low...things that raise arousal level are sensory motor input (movement) and attentional shifts (novelty)...sustained attention takes more energy than any other bodily process, so if one is has low arousal levels, its damn near impossible to focus.....ritalin is an amphetamine, which makes sense logically, but its a fucking amphetimine...theres an adhd medicine called desoxyn, but its generic/scientific name is "methamphetimine", niceness, they give 6 year olds frikken CRANK. literally......
one can be genetically predisposed to this low level of arousal, or can acquire it by being bombarded with ridiculous amounts of sensory t.v., walmart/shopping malls, car alarms, ringing phones, they become somewhat addicted to all the stim., to grossly oversimplify...
but i think the disorder's symptoms are actually a way of self medicating...
the hyperactivity is self-regulation, just not terribly functional.
the term for the entire process is called neuromodulation...i have power point presentations if anyones interested.
