CBD the new method to end nicotine addiction?
Roughly 480,000 deaths are cause by cigarette smoking each year, including at least 41,000 that are caused by secondhand smoke. That’s just in the U.S. alone. There are about 6 million smoking related death per year worldwide. Smoking leads to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, COPD, and emphysema, and many more life-threatening diseases. Smoking increases risk for erectile dysfunction in men, tuberculosis, rheumatoid arthritis, eye diseases, and more.
There are multiple methods that are used to end nicotine addiction. The patch and gum have always been the most popular, of course there’s the cold turkey method, and some of the newer methods in pill from. But what about CBD? Cannabidiol has been frequently tested by scientists as an effective method in putting cigarette smoking to an end.
The combination of a vaporizer pen and CBD oil may be a new solution in treating nicotine addiction. Smoking from a vaporizer pen imitates the sensation and habit of smoking a cigarette. CBD is currently under study for treatment of nicotine addiction. So far, experiments have shown successful outcomes.
Celia J.A. Morgan conducted a study for smokers who wanted to quit smoking cigarettes. Morgan gathered 24 volunteers who smoked more than 10 cigarettes a day, half women, half men, all within the ages of 18- 35. Their task was to use an inhaler every time they had the urge to smoke. 12 volunteers were provided with an inhaler containing CBD, while the other 12 were given a placebo inhaler. They found that there was a decline in the number of cigarettes smoked for subjects provided with CBD inhalers and less cravings than before. Subjects with regular inhalers did not produce the same results.
