Is CBD Addictive?

Is CBD addictive? According to a 2017 report by the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.”

Unlike THC, CBD does not trigger the dopamine receptors in the brain that lead to tolerance and dependency. Both animals and humans have been observed to see if patterns of dependency formed with regular use of CBD. The results? No signs of tolerance nor withdrawal appeared in either group. No signs of CBD having an addictive nature surfaced.

In preliminary studies, CBD has shown to actually decrease the cravings of those addicted to cigarettes and marijuana, and we anxiously await more research on this subject.

Not only that, CBD is considered as having a “good safety profile”, meaning its negative side effects are uncommon or not severe when they do occur.
