Quitting smoking is tough, and for those who attempt the feat it is often going to take them several attempts before they are successful with it.
Might cannabis be able to help?
Researchers have found that CBD might have great potential to help with overcoming a smoking addiction too.
Researchers from University College London investigated the potential of CBD specifically, to help with cigarette addiction, their study involved 24 participants who were between the ages of 18 and 35.
The participants involved in the study were required to receive an inhaler, with instructions telling them to use it any time that they felt an urge to smoke.
They were required to record their inhaler use as well as the number of cigarettes they smoked during the study. They were also required to rate their daily craving level and send that information in to the researchers via text message.
Participants with the CBD inhaler reported a significant reduction in the number of cigarettes that they smoked.
By using the CBD inhaler they were able to reduce the amount of cigarettes that were smoked by roughly 40 percent during the study.
Researchers noted that they were encouraged by these findings, though they still insist that more research is required to determine how viable CBD might be for treatment for addiction to smoking.
