CBD and Addiction: Cue-Induced Cravings

By Michael Inglehearn October 05, 2021

Addiction, no matter the substance, is hard to kick. It's especially hard to kick when you have so many different triggers. These triggers are called cue-induced cravings. These cravings flare up when something happens that reminds you of that substance. For former smokers, it could simply be the smell of your favorite cigarette; for alcoholics, it could be simply passing by your favorite pub. Whatever the case may be, CBD might offer some hope.

These cue-induced cravings are incredibly normal for those who suffer with addiction. These memories that make you crave the substance are so vivid that in some cases, the addict almost feels what it was like when they were on that substance. Then, the memory gets reconsolidated so it can be of use later. That's a pretty powerful memory. A 2017 study shows that CBD could potentially help block those reconsolidated thoughts. The study was done with mice. They were first conditioned to associate a drug like morphine as a reward, then they take the drug away from them and studied their response without the drug. Even though the model is simple, it can actually be correlated to a human relapse. When a moderate dose of CBD was given to the mice, they found that they had less tendency to go into the room associated with the substance, especially compared to those that weren't given CBD. They even found that CBD continued to have a protective effect even after the substance was readministered, meaning that it may continue to help even during a relapse.

Other studies have shown that CBD can reduce the rewarding affect that opiates can make you feel. It shows that CBD may help in forgetting the habits of addiction that often lead to relapse and cravings even after withdrawal has passed.You can read more about CBD and Opioid Addiction here.

Although more research needs to be done, the current research has been eye-opening. More people are using CBD to help with these cravings and are having positive results!
