Cannabidiol Reduces Cigarette Consumption In Tobacco Smokers: Preliminary Findings

Addiction to Nicotine

Key Findings

Over the treatment week, placebo treated smokers showed no differences in number of cigarettes smoked. In contrast, those treated with CBD significantly reduced the number of cigarettes smoked by ~40% during treatment. These preliminary data, combined with the strong preclinical rationale for use of this compound, suggest CBD to be a potential treatment for nicotine addiction that warrants further exploration.
