Treatment is attempted through both cognitive behavioral therapy and psychotropic medication regimens, although the pharmaceutical options have shown very limited success and still raises many questions. Therapy aids in helping the patient recognize the impulses in hopes of achieving a level of awareness and control of the outbursts.

Medical marijuana has active ingredients that are used to treat symptoms and conditions such as stress, severe anxiety, chronic pain and abnormal respiratory functions. Due to the nature of this condition being associated with other conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder, stress and attention hyper activity disorder, medical marijuana is an amazing treatment for this specific condition. Medical marijuana tends to serve as a great mood alteration and provides patients with a very calm and serene view of the world around them. Cannabis is responsible for effectively modifying the “fight or flight” impulse response and can help treat intermittent explosive disorder.
