It’s rough trying to get through the day when you have depression and ADD that are constantly distracting your mind.
Some days I can’t focus because of poor moods, while other days I can’t focus for any particular reason at all. Drinking coffee with lots of caffeine helps my ADD symptoms, but too much and I’ll experience a feeling of anxiety that quickly leads to despair. It’s hard to find the right balance everyday. I would rather stay away from prescription stimulants for the same reason as avoiding too much coffee, but they’re also bad because they can have long term effects on the serotonin response in your brain. I found a much better solution for both my ADD and depression all in one package. That came when I started trying cannabis products for the first time and bought Sour Diesel pre-rolled joints on a whim. It was an amazing experience smoking that first joint of Sour D. The sativa strain focused my mind while melting my stress and my normal depression symptoms. Now I rely on sativa strains of cannabis to power through my workday and get as much work done as humanly possible without getting distracted or feeling slowed down. Another sativa strain that I like a lot is Dutch Hawaiian. It’s a strain called Dutch Treat crossed with the famed Hawaiian landrace. Using this sativa during the morning and afternoon hours melts my stress while energizing my mind. Possessing a quality sativa like this is the difference between having and not having a productive day. Some might prefer indica strains of cannabis, but I’ll take sativas any day of the week!
