We all know somebody that smokes cigarettes. It’s a multi-billion-dollar industry, and according to the CDC, over $1,000,000 per hour is spent on advertising or marketing – just in America! It’s frustrating to see so much money spent on something that has been shown to harm people. So, what can we do to fight this corruption, and epidemic?
There are many studies showing that cannabidiol (CBD) has helped people who smoke kick their addiction to the curb. As this study acknowledges, the endocannabinoid system is becoming better understood and credited with helping those struggling from nicotine addiction. In this same study, they studied people who wanted to quit smoking in a double blind study.
These people were instructed to use an inhaler when they had the urge to smoke. One of the inhalers was filled with CBD, and the other a placebo. In the period of one week, none of the 24 smokers consumed fewer cigarettes with the placebo inhaler. However, those that were treated with CBD for that week reduced their cigarette intake by roughly 40%.
The studies goes on to say:
“Results also indicated some maintenance of this effect at follow-up. 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.”
It’s incredible to think that without even trying, people reduced their intake of cigarettes by nearly half in just one week!
