Treat and Conquer Substance Abuse with CBD
According to statistics from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 21.5 million Americans adults battle a substance abuse disorder. The statistic does not include friends or family who also suffer due to the addiction(s) of the user. A hot topic that has very much been in the news lately is opioid abuse. People don’t only suffer individually, but it also affects our country as a whole. Drug addiction and abuse cost approximately $200 billion in criminal justice, lost workplace production costs, legal, and healthcare report the Office of National Drug Control Policy.
There is a lack of adequate and safe treatments for the growing number of people suffering from opioid use disorder. CBD is a promising, safe alternative. Cannabidiol reduced addictive behavior in a rat study entitled “Cannabidiol a nonpsychotropic component of cannabis inhibits cue-induced heroin-seeking and normalizes discrete mesolimbic neuronal disturbances.” CBD can get in the way of the brain’s reward system responding to the opioids morphine and heroin according to the study “Cannabidiol inhibits the reward-facilitating effect of morphine involvement of 5-HT1A receptors in the dorsal raphe nucleus”.
If you would like or need, to kick an addiction give CBD a try. It could change your life and the ones around you for the better.
