As with anything else, people’s bodies react differently to the effects of any substance, cannabis included. For some people, they may become dependent on the use of cannabis, resulting in withdrawal symptoms such as insomnia or irritability if they go without it too long. While there is no existing treatment for what could be termed cannabis use disorder, some new research suggests the non-intoxicating cannabidiol (CBD) may prove useful in assisting people with decreasing their cannabis dependence.
A Lancet Psychiatry study involved more than eighty participants trying to reduce their dependence on marijuana. Each participant received distinct degrees of medical-grade CBD, which is typically stronger than what’s available commercially. After upping the dosage to at least 400mg, the research determined that participants were able to cut down on their use of marijuana. Furthermore, side effects were not experienced by those that consumed the CBD versus those that were given a placebo.
It’s worth remembering that unlike regular cannabis that contains the chemical THC, CBD is THC-free and, therefore, it does not cause the psychoactive effects that are often associated with the use of marijuana.
