If you’re on the fence about trying CBD to help quit smoking, read on below for how it can help:
Studies on Hemp’s Effectiveness in Helping Smokers Quit
You’ve likely come across many wild claims about CBD curing nearly any condition, from cancer and diabetes to Alzheimer’s and chronic pain, often with little in the way of citations. With so much attention being drawn to a substance that was an unknown till very recently, a hefty dose of skepticism is warranted.
To date, just a few studies have been completed which looked to whether CBD could help smokers quit. What research results we have seen though are promising.
For starters; one double-blind study published in the journal Addictive Behaviors assessed the impact of CBD use in smokers trying to quit cigarettes. They found that CBD has potential as a treatment for nicotine addiction.
In this study, 24 smokers were randomly chosen to use an inhaler containing either CBD or a placebo over the course of a week. At the end of the study, those who used the CBD inhaler reduced their number of cigarettes smoked by roughly 40%, while the placebo users showed no difference. While none quit smoking completely, any progress is good progress!
Though more research is needed in this area, it is believed CBD’s ability to helping smokers combat nicotine addiction is due, at least in part, to the way CBD can disrupt your brain’s link between smoking and triggering behaviors. Examples of triggers include eating a meal, drinking a cup of coffee, or having sex. All activities that smokers commonly follow up with a cigarette.
According to a 2017 study published in Addiction Biology, when researchers gave rats CBD following a triggering activity, it was observed that they weren’t so strongly drawn to their addictive substance of choice (morphine or cocaine). Researchers concluded that CBD could possibly disrupt the mind’s link between a triggering event or memory (such as eating), and a particular drug (such as the nicotine in cigarettes).
