The Green Affect

Hello! Welcome to my website! Before continuing on this page please take notice that this website and its affiliations do not promote the use of marijuana. This website is going to be comparing the positive and negative effects of different medications on a variety of diseases and disorders.

The first disorder I would like to evaluate the medications for is ADHD. For those who dont know what that is here is a little background information. For starters ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. This disorder affects the growth of some parts of the brain, mainly the areas that control attention, social judgment, and movement. For the purpose of this web page I will compare two different medications for this disorder. The first is a very popular one, Adderall (amphetamine), the second is medical cannabis. The two variations with the medications would be dosage for the Adderall and the type of strain for the cannabis. More Information

The second disorder I am going to compare the medications for is autism or ASD (Autism spectrum disorder). Autism is a collection of disorders that impact brain development, characterized by communication difficulties, social interaction problems, and repetitive and sometimes injurious behaviors. Autism management focuses on therapies over drugs, including behavorial modification and social-skills coaching.
