Is CBD addictive?

Is CBD addictive? The answer is NO. CBD is not addictive nor does it get you high in the same way THC does. In a March 2017 study in the Journal of Drug and Alcohol Dependence. Administering various oral dosages of CBD to frequent marijuana users alone and in combination with smoked marijuana, which contained 5.3% to 5.8% THC. After analysing the abuse liability profile of CBD compared with an oral placebo and active marijuana, it was concluded that CBD did not display any signals of abuse liability. Therefore it has been scientifically proven to be non-addictive.

Also, THC when smoked or ingested does not produce the same addiction traits as alcohol or opioids. However chronic use of cannabis can induce Cannabis Use Disorder (CUD). The chronic use of cannabis can result in withdrawal symptoms. Numerous strains of CBD do contain trace amounts of THC but no where near the amount required to result in the type of addiction or withdrawal mentioned previously.

So we can rest assured that when consuming CBD we won’t become addicted or experience nasty withdrawl symptoms.
