Quitting Smoking & Drug Withdrawal
- 13th Oct 2021
A 2013 pilot study found that smokers who used inhalers containing CBD smoked fewer cigarettes than usual and stopped craving nicotine. This suggests that CBD may help people quit smoking.
A 2018 study found that CBD helped reduce cravings during withdrawal from tobacco because of its relaxing effect.
Authors of a 2015 review found evidence that specific cannabinoids, such as CBD, may help people with opioid addiction disorders.
The researchers noted that CBD reduced some symptoms associated with substance use disorders. These included anxiety, mood-related symptoms, pain, and insomnia.
Research continues to support CBD’s use in managing withdrawal symptoms.
