CBD in Cannabis Stops Tobacco Habit !

Study: Cannabis Compound Reduces Cigarette Consumption In Tobacco Smokers

Study: Cannabis Compound Reduces Cigarette Consumption In Tobacco SmokersLondon, United Kingdom: The inhalation of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD (cannabidiol) significantly mitigates tobacco smokers' desire for cigarettes, according to clinical trial data published online in the journal Addictive Behaviors.

Investigators at University College London conducted a double blind pilot study to assess the impact of the ad-hoc consumption of organic CBD versus placebo in 24 tobacco-smoking subjects seeking to quit their habit. Participants were randomized to receive an inhaler containing CBD (n=12) or placebo (n=12) for one week. Trial investigators instructed subjects to use the inhaler when they felt the urge to smoke.

Researchers reported: "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 [the equivalent of] 40 percent during treatment." Moreover, participants who used CBD did not report experiencing increased cravings for nicotine during the study's duration.

Investigators concluded, "This is the first study, as far as we are aware, to demonstrate the impact of CBD on cigarette smoking.... 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."

Previously published clinical trials on CBD have found cannabidiol to be "safe and well tolerated" in healthy volunteers.

Separate investigations of CBD have documented the cannabinoid to possess a variety of therapeutic properties, including anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-epileptic, anti-cancer, and bone-stimulating properties.

CBD Oil and Infused Products Now Available

After a few years of trials and tribulations a handful of
vendors now offer CBD (Cannabidiol) Oil and CBD Infused
products for sale to the general public nationwide.

CBD it is one of the key ingredients found in Medical Marijuana
that has been scientifically shown to be primarily responsible
for many of the benefits associate with Medical Marijuana.

The good news is that CBD is not only found in Medical
Marijuana plants but also in our beloved Industrial Hemp
allowing this powerful natural ingredient to be extracted
and made available as a nutrition supplement !

For less than a cup of a Starbucks Coffee you can add CBD
to your daily diet for general health applications.

Of course you may need significantly more (up to 20x) to address
some of the medical conditions identified in the studies but for
those of us who current get zero CBD, even as little as 8-10mg
per day can jump start our dormant Cannabinoid System.

Of course those who are already medicating with MMJ can
supplement their low CBD strains allowing them to control the
CBD content themselves and not have to limit their medicine to
high CBD strains.

Plus, did you know that CBD has been shown scientifically to
affect the metabolism rate of THC when consumed after
medicating? So adding a CBD supplement after medicating
can help regulate and extend the "benefits" of THC allowing
the MMJ consumer to get "more bang for the buck".

By spending a few extra bucks on a CBD supplement they could
perhaps save a whole lot more on their "medicine" all while
increasing their overall CBD intake!

Anyway, very exciting news for all Cannabis/Hemp Supporters.
