CBD and Addiction

Posted by Melinda Bloch on

Addiction can come in many shapes, forms and degrees of severity. Addiction refers to wanting something despite the consequences. You can be mildly addicted to exercise and just push your body too far and end up fatigued day after day. Someone addicted to illicit or prescription drugs can have a worse time because even if they decide to stop, they start to experience withdrawal. Often times the symptoms of withdrawal can be life threatening such as increased risk of heart attacks, seizures, hallucinations, depression, difficulty breathing and delirium.
opioid addiction

As the opioid epidemic plagues most of America, patients are already trying to quit their addictive substances for something a little more natural. A Canadian researcher discovered that 63% of patients reported using medical cannabis as a substitute for prescription drugs, such as opioids, sedatives, and anti-depressants. New studies are now beginning to look into using CBD oil to treat various forms of addiction.
Studies on addiction and CBD oil are being done for:
Opioids:

Alcohol:

Nicotine/Cigarettes:

Eating Disorders:
Gambling:
Many studies point to CBD oil with helping some of the underlying causes of addiction such as chronic pain, anxiety, impulsiveness and depression.
