CBD products are seemingly everywhere. They can be purchased locally, in big and small shops, or online from the comfort of your own home.
There are countless options for the consumption of CBD. You can apply it to your body with skin and hair products. You can breathe it in with cigarettes and vape products. You can ingest it in the form of gummies, tea, edibles, food, supplements, and more.
CBD has long been accredited as a treatment to reduce the cravings of cocaine, eventually helping cocaine users break their addictions. However, that is not what a recent Canadian study shows.
The clinical trial randomly divided 78 people with cocaine addiction into two groups. One group received 800 mg a day of cannabidiol, the other, a placebo.
The participants had a 10-day hospital stay for detox and were sent home. Follow-up included weekly assessments for the next three months.
“In our study, the use of CBD was not more effective than a placebo in treating cocaine use disorder,” said study author Violaine Mongeau-Pérusse, a doctoral student at the research center.
“Although it is safe and produces only mild side effects, CBD reduces neither the craving to use cocaine nor the risk of a user’s relapse after detoxification.”
The study was recently published in the journal Addiction.
