New Study About Prescribed Cannabis to Quit Marijuana Use

A randomized clinical trial was just completed and published in Lancet Psychiatry which focused on discovering if prescribed cannabis could be used to help marijuana users quit their cannabis habit. The study was conducted by giving 82 volunteers either CBD or a placebo to see if it would help them stop using cannabis. The volunteers were given the CBD or placebo for a 4 week period and their progress was also measured 6 months later at a follow-up date. 

The CBD dosages that were administered included 200 mg, 400 mg, or 800 mg. The researchers found the 200 mg dosage to be ineffective so they only continued the 400 mg and 800 mg dosages which they found to be more effective than the placebo in helping the volunteers quit using marijuana. The results from this experiment show that CBD can help considerably in the marijuana quitting process, and although the clinical trial was a small sample, it provides insight into how CBD can continue to be tested and used in the future for similar situations.
