A brand-new study from the University of Colorado continues the positive data coming out on the ability for CBD to help cure addiction. This study was done on the use of CBD-Dominant Cannabis Associated with Reduced Alcohol Intake. The study, published in the journal Psychology of Addictive Behaviors ( https://doi.org/10.1037/adb0000706) – THC and CBD effects on alcohol use among alcohol and cannabis co-users., shows decreased use of alcohol and THC after use of CBD cannabinoid doses.
Researchers reported that participants assigned to use Cannabidiol-dominant cannabis during the trial period “drank fewer drinks per drinking day, had fewer alcohol use days, and fewer alcohol and cannabis co-use days compared with the other groups.”
The authors continue: “the results were consistent with preclinical work suggesting that CBD may be associated with decreased alcohol consumption.”
In conclusion, the authors state: “The present study lends preliminary support to the notion that plant-based CBD may be associated with decreased alcohol consumption among regular cannabis users and suggests that it may be feasible for regular cannabis users to switch to a higher CBD, lower THC content cannabis strain for the purposes of reducing their alcohol intake.”
