Unique treatment potential of cannabidiol for the prevention of relapse to drug use: preclinical proof of principle
Edit: Some interesting stidies I found.
The main reason I never even considered CBD was because of the Leaves subreddit and them being against it. I thought it was cheating.
One reported consequence of the cessation of daily marijuana use is a withdrawal syndrome that is characterized by irritability, anxiety, marijuana craving, decreased quality and quantity of sleep, and reduced food intake.16,20 The use of the CBD oil in transitioning the current patient off the marijuana allowed him to avoid experiencing those side effects, as was demonstrated by his behavior and scores on the PSQI and HAM-A screening tools.
A possible weakness of the study is the fact that the patient’s total nonuse of marijuana was self-reported, and the reliability of his reporting could be suspect. However, the patient made significant gains in taking responsible actions and presented fewer erratic and disorganized behaviors.
Cannabidiol Oil for Decreasing Addictive Use of Marijuana: A Case Report
!0 years went by and i never stopped. I tried everything under the sun, but the extreme anxiety, sweating, depression, insomnia, no appetite just killed me every time. And when i would cold turkey my anxiety was still a constant trgger.
I have been a thc user for about 10 years. I started when i was 18 and i remember ripping a bong on my third time ever trying it and told myself that this feeling is too good and I should stop now.
I said fuck it this time and got pure cbd oil and instead of wake and baking I took that and went of a walk. Within 30 mins that dark depressive eegy of no THC was gone. I had no racing thought about quitting. The thought of if I just make it through today maybe tmrw will be better was gone.
To be clear- if you're taking CBD for anxiety, and you stop taking CBD, the anxiety may come back. That's not a withdrawal. I mean where there are secondary symptoms that are caused by the lack of this chemical in your body, like when you stop smoking THC and your dopamine systems are confused.
I was recommended by a friend to take CBD oil to help with anxiety instead of THC (something I have been very addicted to, trying to stop), and I'm interested in trying that out and seeing if that helps. Question- do people experience any sort of withdrawal symptoms when they quit ingesting CBD? Is there any reason to be concerned about developing a reliance on CBD?
Hey all! I am currently trying to quit smoking THC, and I have been experiencing symptoms like crazy anxiety, dizziness, spaciness, nausea, insomnia, irritability etc. I'm on another subreddit where I'm chatting with folks about that.
If anything about this post breaks guidelines, or if I'm posting this in the wrong sub, let me know. I've never posted or even lurked r/CBD before, just reaching out to the people who may know the situation best 🙂
