Substance and Alcohol Abuse
Is characterized by the inability to consistently abstain from a substance or behavior, despite substantial harm to oneself. Scientists have found that the heroin-seeking behavior of self-administering rats decreased when the animals were given CBD.
Many foods and plants create chemical dependencies. Cleansing and detoxifying the liver is a crucial first step toward breaking free of these addictions. Frankincense, orange, fennel, ledum, and tarragon can aid in this process while CBD oil can help smoothen cell production and strengthen the immune system through the ECS. The aromatherapy of grapefruit can also help calm and soothe withdrawal symptoms.
The ideal CBD dose for you usually depends primarily on your body weight, but it can also be influenced by other factors, such as your personal body chemistry, your age, and any other health conditions you have. Start with a low dose. Assess how you feel after 1 week of use. If required, adjust dosage weekly until you find your “sweet spot.”
CBD is non-addictive, non-psychoactive, is safe to take in doses up to 1500mg/day, and appears to reduce drug cravings and anxiety experienced by addicts. Alcohol dependence is linked to down-regulation of endocannabinoids and CB1 receptors.
