Cannabis Cures Addiction:
There’s enough evidence to backup that cannabinoids help fight addiction. It’s not just based on personal evidence. Several studies have shown that cannabis can help combat opiate, alcohol, tobacco and many other addiction. name it.
Several research have indicated that endocannabinoid plays a role in addiction. This have helped researchers to believe that emulating the endocannabinoid or adding cannabis into our body system can reduce the addictive behaviors in human. Not just one research several research have supported this.
Abstract of some research:
The role of the endocannabinoid system in nicotine addiction is being increasingly acknowledged. We conducted a pilot, randomised double blind placebo controlled study set out to assess the impact of the ad-hoc use of cannabidiol (CBD) in smokers who wished to stop smoking. 24 smokers were randomised to receive an inhaler of CBD (n = 12) or placebo (n = 12) for one week, they were instructed to use the inhaler when they felt the urge to smoke. Over the treatment week, placebo treated smokers showed no differences in number of cigarettes smoked. In contrast, those treated with CBD significantly reduced the number of cigarettes smoked by ~ 40% during treatment. Results also indicated some maintenance of this effect at follow-up. These preliminary data, combined with the strong preclinical rationale for use of this compound, suggest CBD to be a potential treatment for nicotine addiction that warrants further exploration.
The above research conducted in London shows that adding CBD inhaler reduced drastically cigarettes consumption by 40%.
another study by John Wiley & Sons Ltd on behalf of Society for the Study of Addiction also proved that A single 800-mg oral dose of cannabidiol reduced the salience and pleasantness of cigarette cues, compared with placebo, after overnight cigarette abstinence in dependent smokers. Cannabidiol did not influence tobacco craving or withdrawal or any subjectively rated side effects.
Anotherresearch conducted 2016 showed that cannabis can be used to replace cigarettes.
