CBD and Addiction Treatment: Reduce Cravings Naturally | cbdMD

Addiction/Substance Abuse

Addiction/Substance Abuse Overview

Drug addiction, or substance use disorder, affects mental and behavior patterns leading to the uncontrollable use of drugs or medications - legal or illegal. Addiction may start by experimenting with recreational drugs or exposure to prescription drugs. Addiction risks and how quick addiction occurs depends on the substance. As time goes on, excessive doses of the drug is needed to reach that “high” or desired effect which ultimately leads to dependency and often ends in mortality. Efforts to drop drug use “cold-turkey” typically cause overwhelming cravings and ill-natured withdrawal symptoms[72].

CBD Intervenes Addictive Behaviors

Based on abstractive research, Cannabidiol (CBD) is considered to adjust a variety of neurological circuits associated with drug addiction, and scientific reviews have summarized the effects of CBD for substance abuse and addictive tendencies from preclinical data and clinical results. These studies imply the therapeutic factors CBD may have on cocaine, psychostimulant and opioid addiction. Further examinations even hint at possibilities of CBD as beneficial towards tobacco and THC addiction in humans[73].

Case Developments

A recent medical journal published results which indicated CBD producing favorable effects on the intoxication and relapse phase correlating to opioid addiction using mice models induced with morphine and naloxone. Another study documented a reduction in tobacco cravings when comparing CBD inhalers to placebo inhalers with a group of 24 human smokers. With these results, tests conclude the possible impact CBD has on opioid addiction and beneficial effects towards tobacco dependence [73].
