The CBD treatment seems to have decreased the subjects’ drug-seeking behaviours, without increasing adverse side effects, like increased CBD tolerance, sedation, or lack of motivation. As a potential drug and alcohol recovery medicine, CBD has quite a unique profile.
And the effects were lasting, too. Subjects were less likely to seek drugs for the five months following the CBD treatment ended; that’s despite the fact that CBD wasn’t detectable in the brain and plasma after three days. If replicated in humans, these results could indicate CBD’s usefulness in the prevention of relapses.
It’s trendy to believe that CBD can cure everything from anxiety to acute inflammation, but the reality is likely somewhat less than that. Some of those surprising health benefits may be wishful thinking, but when it comes to aggressive neurologic and psychiatric disorders—addiction included—the solution deserves observation through all possible lenses.
