Cannabidiol and clozapine reverse MK-801-induced deficits in social inderation and hyperactivity in Sprague-Dawley rats.

From the abstract:

Results showed that the MK-801- (0.3 mg/kg) treated rats displayed reduced social investigative behaviour, hyperacitivity as well as reduced attention span Pretreatment with the phytocannabinoid cannabidiol (3mg/kg) not only normalised social investigative behaviour but incteased it beyond control levels.

Oral delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol improved refractory Gilles de la Tourette syndrome in an adolescent by increasing intracortical inhibition: a case report. 

From the abstract:

Administration of Delta 9-THC improved tics considerably without adverse effect, allowing parallel stimulant treatment of comorbid ADHD… Our observaion suggests that Delta 9-THC might be a successful alternative in patients with severe [Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome] refractory to classic treatment. Partivularly in the case of stimulant-induced exacerbation of tics, Delta 9-THC might enable successful treatment of comorbid ADHD.

From the abstract:

A 28-year-old male, who showed abnormal behaviour and seemed to be significantly maladjusted and inattentive while sober, appeared to be completely normal with a very high plasma level of THC… Thus, it has to be taken into account that in persons with ADHD THC may have atypical and even performance-enhancing effects.
