Today's Weed News for May 23rd 2018 #TOBACCO

in news •  3 months ago


For today's weed news we go across the pond to the great city of London.

A recent study from University College London has concluded that CBD oil may be help people who are trying to quit smoking cigarettes.

Results showed that consuming CBD subverts a significant number of relapse triggers.

Although the experiment was conducted on a rather small sample population, the results are similar to that of another study on smoking and CBD from University College London, which found that people using CBD oils each time they craved tobacco reduced their smoking by 40% over just 7 days.

The director of the Addiction Institute at the Mount Sinai hospital network in New York recently told iNews that "Taken together, these studies suggest CBD could play a key role in helping people to give up smoking."

The results of both studies suggest that using the CBD did not reduce any withdrawal symptoms or cravings.

Dr. Tom Freeman from King's College London interprets the results as being most effective at countering social smoking triggers.

"It might be particularly effective when abstinent smokers are exposed to cues that trigger relapse, Such as when they are with a friend who lights a cigarette, or any particular place they associate with smoking" said Freeman.

University College London is currently conducting additional, larger studies about a CBD and smoking. If the results end up being similar to those described above, CBD-based meds to help people kick tobacco could hit stores as soon as 2023.

That's what's up!
