Cannabidiol Helps Diminish Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Cannabidiol helps diminish drug and alcohol addiction, according to the recent study conducted on the non-psychoactive component called as cannabidiol found in marijuana, which the researchers have detected to be significantly helpful to the people suffering from the addiction to alcohol and drugs.

The recent review disclosed in the scientific journal – Neuro-psychopharmacology, has discovered that the cannabidiol (CBD) is able to reduce the major risk of being addicted to smoking and drinking in extreme amount as well as harmful drugs.


The investigation team leader, Friedbert Weiss from the Scripps Research Institute said in a statement that, “The results provide proof of principle supporting the potential of CBD in relapse prevention along two dimensions CBD: beneficial actions across several vulnerability states, and long-lasting effects with only brief treatment.”

So, the researchers have now been choosing the cannabidiol as a more effective option for treating severe pains such as neurological disorders and psychiatric disorders, within their treatments over the addiction of alcohol and drug.

Weiss added that, “Drug addicts enter relapse vulnerability states for multiple reasons. Therefore, effects such as those observed with CBD that concurrently ameliorates several of these are likely to be more effective in preventing relapse than treatments targeting only a single state.”

Moreover, the research review disclosed in January 2017 by the National Academy of Sciences, the medical marijuana was discovered as the effective treatment over the chronic pain, nausea and muscle spasms in multiple sclerosis.
