Can CBD Help Addictions?
Can CBD Help With Addictions?
The conversation circling CBD and whether or not it can help with addictions is far from being concluded, however we’ll share with you where that conversation stands. For those who are unfamiliar, let’s start with what CBD actually is; CBD is a non-psychoactive and non-addictive supplement that is used in a variety of ways. The most common question we get is if CBD will get you high? The answer is, no. CBD is rich with terpenes, fatty acids, vitamins, and other nutrients and gives you that same soothing feeling without actually getting you ‘high’. CBD can be found in many things such as hemp flower and over-the-counter products like moisturizers and CBD tinctures.
Since the Farm Bill was signed in 2018, CBD has been one of the hottest topics on the planet. Not only that, but it is said that 1 in 7 adults either currently take CBD, or have taken it in the past. It’s important to note that since CBD is so new, the research on CBD is far from being concluded.
CBD is used for a wide range of treatments and desired results such as to help with anxiety, stress, pain management and sleep, to name a few. Still, the question remains whether or not CBD can help with addictions? Let’s talk about that.
Can CBD Be Taken To Help Cure Addictions?
We’ll start here; CBD is not the miracle cure for addictions. In other words, if you are battling an opioid, smoking, alcohol or any other bad habit or addiction, simply starting to take CBD isn’t going to rectify that for you. Now that we’ve set the record a little more straight, let’s talk about how CBD actually CAN help with addictions.
CBD is widely used by millions of people to help reduce things like anxiety, stress, pain and insomnia. This is where the bridge is built between CBD and addictions. The way CBD “works” is it binds to receptors in the brain which are linked with parts and systems in your body. CBD can aid in helping reduce those things we mentioned earlier such as anxiety, stress, pain, insomnia and many more things. This is where the CBD helping with addictions conversation comes full circle.
Many, though not all, addictions are influenced by people searching for ways to escape, alleviate or mask certain things they are dealing with such as pain, trouble sleeping and stress. It is thought that CBD can potentially reduce the drug cravings, anxiety and stress that are cued by drug and alcohol use in an indirect manner. The theory is, reduce the things that increase your likelihood of using addictive substances and you may see an overall reduction in your cravings for those addictions.
One of the top reasons CBD is in the conversation as a method of reducing addiction cravings is that CBD itself is non-addictive. Unlike other addiction-remedying medications that are actually addictive themselves, CBD is a safe alternative to try.
