Cannabidiol: Swinging the Marijuana Pendulum From ‘Weed’ to Medication to Treat the Opioid Epidemic.

March, 2017

Abstract

This is a great review written by Yasmin Hurd where she reviews her research (at Mount Sinai) on the effect CBD can have on opioid cravings during the withdrawal period. Her study started with a mouse model and has moved on to human clinical studies which are validating that CBD has a significant impact on cravings which is critical because cravings are the number one predictor of relapse.
