A new study released in the American Journal of Psychiatry has discovered promising results with CBD and heroin addiction. The purpose of this recent study was to see how effective CBD would be in curbing cravings as well as alleviating the anxiety tied to heroin addiction. The current available medications for opioid addiction are actually other forms of opioids that help curb cravings but are a short-term solution that requires doctor prescription and supervision. This study discovered that patients administered with high doses of CBD daily experienced reduced cravings as well as lessened anxiety.
The Benefits of CBD for Heroin Addiction
The opioid crisis has claimed approximately 400,000 American lives since 2000. With only one in five addicts receiving the proper treatment for opioid addiction, this crisis continues to plague our community. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound that provides a long-term solution since it is non-habit forming and safe even in large doses. Other similar studies have found CBD’s potential for treating opioid and tobacco addiction. This recent study found that patients administered with CBD experienced two to three times fewer cravings when compared to those administered with a placebo. The study also found that the group of patients administered with CBD had significantly lower levels of cortisol, also known as the stress hormone. While the researchers still need to more data regarding proper dosage and the number of times CBD should be administered each day, the findings are incredibly encouraging.
