Study: CBD Can Help Cut Down On Overuse Of Cannabis
STUDY SHOWS CBD MAY BE USEFUL IN TREATING CANNABIS USE DISORDER
(CNN) – A new study suggests using CBD could help people who abuse marijuana.
On Tuesday the Lancet Psychiatry published a 2015 study that looked at people with cannabis use disorder.
That’s when pot use impairs a person’s psychological, physical or social functioning.
Researchers say they looked at 82-people who fit that criteria and they found treating the disorder with cannabidiol or CBD could possibly reduce the patients’ pot use.
CBD is a chemical found in marijuana.
The team says they used medical-grade CBD that was safe and they saw no serious adverse effects during the study.
