CBD and heroin addition

Thankfully, I’ve not had to struggle with addiction (unless you count running, which I don’t). However, I am interested in tracking some of the developments in research related to CBD, especially since it was so difficult for researchers to work with until very recently due to federal regulations.

Well, a recent study in the American Journal of Psychiatry recently found that CBD is effective at reducing cravings for heroin and reduces anxiety as well. That’s pretty cool! For anyone paying attention, there is an opioid crisis in the United States and anything that can help people without nasty side effects is a great thing. I realize that looking to CBD for some help running is minor in the scheme of things so I wanted to give a shout out to CBD for some of it’s larger potential.
